A boba a day, keeps reality away.
You make me feel all bubbly inside.
Today I’d like to sit and sip boba tea and forget the world a bit.
You are the brown sugar to my bubble tea.
Last month I did #57 MONTHSARY: KOPI SIEW DAI 半烧 GIRL, this month I thought of another drink that is also my favourite lately – the Taiwanese brown sugar bubble tea!
This year especially, we have seen several Taiwanese bubble tea chains opening their stalls all over Singapore selling all kinds of brown sugar bubble drinks that have become really popular among youngsters and office workers alike. The more well-known ones include Xinfutang, Jenjudan, Tiger Sugar, The Alley and many more. I have personally tried and tasted various of these brown sugar drinks from different brands over the last few months and shared them with Taenggu. My number 1 favourite so far is The Alley’s signature Brown Sugar Deerioca Fresh Milk!
It seems like Korea has also caught on the brown sugar bubble tea craze too! During an episode of SM Super League live, Taenggu shared that she herself has also tried the brown sugar bubble drink and found it delicious and liked it very much! 맛있다!! 👍
Hehe since we both love brown sugar bubble tea, why not make it a theme for our monthsary artwork this month?? On our 57th monthsary last month, already anticipating that I would be making a brown sugar bubble tea for my next monthsary artwork, I specially bought a cup of Brown Sugar Deerioca Fresh Milk from The Alley before heading off to catch The Maleficient movie with Taenggu so that I could reuse its empty cup for my artwork later on!
The following is the process of how I made this artwork which was met with some difficulty and quite a bit of mess along the way.
I have to say the process was faced with many challenges and mishaps. Lack of right resources and expertise, presence of anxiety, mistakes and carelessness due to impatience of wanting to get things done fast – are my personal reflections of making this artwork. But I’m glad the final outcome looks decent enough in my opinion. Heh. 😅
Now popping you the detailed photos of the completed artwork like bubbles into your mouth! 💣
To complement my artwork, I also got Taenggu this really cute pair of bubble tea earrings! ㅋㅋ 🎁😍
To me, Taenggu not only is like white sugar to my Kopi, she is also sweet like the brown sugar to my bubble tea too!
Hope you like this artwork, 탱구야!! Let’s drink our favourite brown sugar bubble tea drinks whenever we need an escape from reality and forget the world for just a bit and feel all bubbly again! Hahaha. HAPPY 58TH MONTHSARY! Love you lots. 💜
