”So cute!” My female friends squealed in delight at the sight of these hipster-ish light bulb bottles for bubble tea.
The common reply from them was, “You drink the bubble tea and we will keep the bottle”.
So guys, you know what to do.
Some called this Instagram-worthy, some regarded this as wa-yang aka “for show”, but nevertheless, these cute light bulb bottles caught our attention.
Located out of sight within a building at Tai Seng , with office workers populating on weekdays, Bubbs recently opened their doors there.
As their name implies, Bubbs sells a variety of bubble tea such as Black, Green, Oolong Tea ($2.20), Milk Tea ($3.20 – $3.50), Fruit Tea ($2.70 – $2.90), Yakult ($3.50) and Ice Blend ($4).
The cute little light bulb bottles ($3) are available for all drinks except Yakult and Ice Blend, and we believed that most people are there for the bottles.
Similar to other bubble tea shops, toppings (white pearls, rainbow jelly, grass jelly, aloe vera) are available at an additional $0.60.
We get to choose between 5 different sugar levels: 0%, 30%, 50%, 80% and 100% and the amount of ice.
We had the Thai Milk Tea and Thai Green Milk Tea which were uncommon flavours in bubble tea shops.
Made using the Thai Number One Brand, flavour and texture were decent and we loved the idea of a customised sugar level as Thai Milk Tea tends to have a sweeter profile.
The drinks here were pretty much similar to other bubble tea shops out there, except their cute little light bulb packaging which was a novelty.
