Olympic fever is upon us! Like many of you I’m sure, watching the games gives me goosebumps. And it’s not just the constant sport watching that I love. It's the stories behind the athletes – the injuries, the sacrifices, the commitment, the team work. A favourite take home story for me has been the Fijian rugby sevens team taking the gold medal in the final against Great Britain – the nation’s first ever Olympic medal. And the gold medal no less. A historical moment for the Pacific Island nation of 900,000 people!
So in ode to the Olympic spirit, I’d like to introduce to you POWER UP. A blended original and fan favourite - even the Fijian rugby team enjoyed it! If you've had the chance to test us out at various sporting events throughout Hong Kong, you will attest to this beverage’s deliciousness. It’s fresh, hydrating and loaded with the good stuff. If you are yet to sample this concoction, she is available for purchase for the banking folk at HSBC Pacific Coffee [1 Queen’s Road Central] or if you’re a south-sider, she is a menu regular at Chicken on the Run down at the Pulse – so get down there and give her a try.
