Coca-cola is rarely chosen as a ‘kongkow’/hang out drink. Adding to that, there’s an urban youth myth that said Coca-cola contained too much chemical substance that it could clean up rusty metal. Unsurprisingly this kind of issue matters big time for youth. Anggun Pesona Research Manager Youth laboratory Indonesia

  12. 12. Coke’s only shoot to grab youths market is through fast food meal package. This ‘forced choice’ strategy contribute in keeping coke taste familiar to the Asian tongue. But since McDonald Indonesia ownership switch hands, McD change it’s meal package from soda to ‘Teh Botol’ (tea). Leaving only a little space for Coke to improve.

  18. 18. Daniel Sharkif, 21, Sungai Buloh, Selangor, Malaysia. (student) #1. I drink regular, non-carbonated drinks during lunch, usually. Things like Iced tea, Iced milk tea, lime juice, that kind of thing, you know? OCCASIONALLY I’ll have a Coke or Soda, but usually I like something iced, and non-carbonated. #2. If I had to choose, I think it’d be a tie between tea, mineral water and soda. I drink plain water every day, so it’s definitely a must. Tea is also a must-have during lepak-sessions. Soda, for me, well.. I don’t HAVE to drink it every day, but I’d definitely miss it if it were gone. It’s certainly good to have an iced Coke a couple of times a week, I guess. #3 / #4. Yeah, I love soda. I don’t drink it every day, but I definitely love it. My favorite would definitely be Pepsi. People say it tastes exactly like Coke, but I think there’s a bit of a difference. I love Pepsi! MalaysianYouthProfiling
  19. 19. #1. Whenever I’m out for lunch, I’m more of an “Iced Tea” kind of person. I don’t like carbonated drinks with meals, they’re too sticky and heavy. Anything milky also doesn’t tickle my fancy. I like something light, but heavily iced. #2. My favorite beverage of all time would have to be Ice-blended Mocha! But if I HAD to choose from the list, I’d say plain water. I know it’s not glam, but it’s healthy, and that’s very, VERY important to girls like me. Health always comes first! #3/#4. I definitely don’t believe in drinking soda on a regular basis, it’s too unhealthy. It’s too sweet. But yes, I have to admit that if consumed in regulation, it’s pretty nice. I’m not much of a soda-head, but I have to admit, F&N’s Zesty Zapple IS pretty darn tasty.  “Siti Hajar, 21, Kuala Terengganu, Terengganu Malaysia” MalaysianYouthProfiling
  20. 20. “Teh O, Teh O’ Ais, Teh Ais, Teh Tarik, Kopi O, Nescafe Tarik, Milo Ais. These drinks have become part of our lives, since we were young, little kids.

  22. 22. “I love how “Malaysian” Milo is, because it’s been around for so long. Powering athletes since like, decades ago. I think it’s simple, and effective, the way Milo markets itself. I think they’ll never lose out to brands like “Ovaltine” or Vico.” “From our “Sports Day” at school, all the way up till now, Milo has played a big role in my life. They’ve been around since I was young, and the taste is just as good as it was, nearly 20 years ago. I definitely have an emotional attachment with Milo.” MalaysianYouthProfiling “Siti Hajar, 21, Kuala Terengganu, Terengganu Malaysia”
  23. 23. Milo has been around for years, and they’ve built a solid fan-base built straight from the hard- working families of Malaysia. Since its inception decades ago, people took a sip and fell in love with it. People love Milo simply because it’s played a big part in our lives. From the Sports Day Milo Sponsor Lorry who would supply free Milo to the kids, to the hot glass of Milo that we’d sip while burning an all-nighter during the night before a major paper, Milo has been a part of our life. This is what brand-engagement is all about. Making the brand a part of the story. Part of OUR story. Fadli Azali Youth Specialist Youth Works Asia
