18.04.2012 | 奶茶危機

[Volume 7 Issue 4, #1388]
最近坊間爆紅嘅珍珠奶茶, 一間接一間開完再開.. 見到啲人排晒長龍, 手上拎住一杯所謂嘅「潮流飲品」, 一副「阿媽我得咗喇」嘅亢奮神情, 我覺得幾可笑.. 昨日於面卜睇到一篇關於珍珠奶茶嘅寫作, 個人認為一針見血, 寫得非常之好.. 好慶幸我從來一杯都未飲過..
 
bubble milk tea has become so popular recently that shops open one right after another.. i always think it is utterly amusing to see that priceless "mum, i finally did it" expression on the face of those who managed to grab a cup of this "stylish drinks" after a long queue.. read an article on facebook about bubble milk tea, and i personally think this is so well written, right to the dot.. i am so happy that i have not tried a single cup of them..

  12. Last year when the news came out about it's dangers, I avoided this drink. Later the research showed that it does not apply to all the bubble tea in the market.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No apply to all, ka? Then which one is safe?

      I used to buy milk tea from pasar malam vendor occasionally, until the news broke out.

      Now no more milk tea for me and my family.

      Delete
    2. not apply to all but apply to most right?? so which one is not harmful to our health?? i want to buy that!!!

      Delete
  13. Well, many humans and consumers are funny beings sometimes. They go for tastes and flavor regardless of it's price and dangers!

      Delete
    4. yeah, that's why i feel this is so amusing!! they just buy because others are buying, they queue because there's a long queue.. they never have thought whether they like or not, but when many people are having that, they feel proud because they had it before.. silly yeah??

  15. Thambee dei, did you know that your favorite sushi and sashimi is not good for health too? All the raw meat of fish and cow caused many patients to have worms eating their brains? The meat was not cooked and bacteria's eggs will hatch inside your body. They move up to multiply in your Head like a nest of the tree. I am not kidding boy!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. that's indeed scary but I still take sushi and shashimi

      Delete
    2. actually Thambee seldom eat raw food lah.. Thambee doesn't like sushi at all, but sashimi, haha!! anyway, i think maybe one day there will be rotten fish coming out from Thambee's stomach because of all those worms?? yet, we all still eat albeit hear many of these news..

      Delete
  16. Anyway, enough of my grandma talk. Life is so short dei.... Just take middle path, eat everything moderately and be happy... Satay, sushi, bubble tea, nicotine, caffeine and other toxic won't kill you instantly if taken in smallest quantity.

    1. true..just experience it at least once

    2. yes, eat things moderately and i think we are all fine.. afterall, what's life for without good food right?? :D

  37. Since it causes cancer, it should ban from opening store in the country, don't you think so?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. errr, i don't think so.. because it really depends on how people drink it.. it's legal because the substances are not over the allowed dosage, so still they pass under regulations..

  38. SK, what about those snowy dessert from Taiwan? It also contains a lot of pearl balls and taro lo! I think those also bad for health, right?

    1. i think it's the same thing lah.. but so far i tried only once and didn't quite like it.. and in fact, i read somewhere there eating too many shaved ice isn't good to health too..

  40. Honestly, I like bubble tea and the chewy balls. It's sweet, mild tea taste (I dislike tea) and come in many flavours.

    But have stopped since it do more damages than goods in each intake.

    Replies
    1. i don't really like bubble tea but then i think the pearls are nice, haha!! i love the chewiness actually.. but then i seldom drink that lah..

      Delete
  41. But then, I never tried those commercialized bubble tea, namely chatime, gong-cha(?). Bought from pasar malam only :p

    Already complained RM2.50 for a glass of bubble tea is expensive..... and those franchised one suppose to be more pricey.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. yeah, i think they are so ridiculously overcharging!! RM5.90 for a cup of drinks, wow, i wonder how many folds of net profit they earn..

  42. My girl loves bubble tea too, but she doesn't enjoy the tapioca balls.

    My son, on the other hand, I don't allow him to have it. He just drinks and swallows. He doesn't chew and I'm afraid he might choke on the balls (If he vomit, that would be better. If he doesn't, then how?? *touch wood*)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. hahaha, so this means you again can buy one and they share.. one drink the tea one eats the pearls, haha!! well, i think better not let kids have the pearls, it may choke them to suffocation..

  43. This type of Taiwan Bubble tea is one of my favourite ! But I know of those artificial stuffs being added into the milk tea, so i control control also. haha....tasty stuff are never healthy.
