It’s been months since the bubble tea craze took over the internet and there’s still no sign of it stopping any time soon.
If you’ve visited SS15 in Subang Jaya, chances are you’ve seen long queues outside bubble tea stores no matter rain or shine. Although bubble tea has been introduced to us years ago, it wasn’t until last year when the obsession for the sweet beverage grew stronger.
Just when we thought the bubble tea craze is only happening in our country, it turns out that Asian communities around the world are in the craze too! It’s no surprise to hear people suggesting to throw a bubble tea party or replacing alcoholic drinks at a wedding with bubble tea on the internet but turns out, somebody really made the dream a reality.
A Facebook user named Shirley Hellos recently took to the famous Subtle Asian Traits Facebook group to share how she made her dream of serving bubble tea come true on her wedding day. To ensure the quality and freshness of the bubble teas, she also requested Chatime to cater live during cocktail hour so every guest will have a freshly made cup of boba.
Don’t let your dreams just be dreams. Especially on your big day :)
I got married May 18, 2019 this year and we made the bubbletea @ wedding dream come true. Instead of soggy warm boba (like the photos you’ve seen that don’t have any ice and have been premade hours before serving) we asked the local Chatime to come live cater during our cocktail hour so they had each drink freshly made! Even the manager served our guests and it was an insane hit!
P.S. There’s also a Coco’s in town but I don’t think they do live catering.
The post quickly garnered more than 20,000 likes and 8,000 comments from users who are totally fascinated by it. One user even commented that it’s “the kind of wedding everyone need”. Yes, we totally agree!
In fact, it seems that the love for boba is getting slightly out of hand, with people around the world adding tapioca pearls to food such as mee goreng, omelette, mapo tofu and even cooking rice with bubble milk tea!
How far would you go for boba?
