Singaporeans have always amazed me in terms of their work ethics, productivity, "intelligence" and now they have outdone themselves again. In Singapore drinking bubble milk tea is more important than life itself! YES! Yesterday (21st of April 2020) was a historic day in down South as hundreds of Singaporeans took to the streets and lined up to grab their one last bubble milk tea before temporary closure. The closure which will last for ONLY 14 days until 4th of May has caused "panic-buying" of bubble milk tea!
One last bubble milk tea!
Screw Covid-19 virus!
The Singapore government has earlier announced that shops selling desserts and snacks will cease their operations beginning today-22nd of April 2020. After that"life-threatening" revelation by Singapore's MITI (Ministry of Trade & Industry), throngs of Singaporeans flocked to their favourite stores selling fruit juice, smoothies and especially bubble milk tea to get one last sip of their favourite beverages. I didn't know that bubble milk tea is such an essential part of our life *gasp*.
Don't worry bubble milk tea can ward off Covid-19 virus!
Don't get me wrong! Yours truly me loves bubble milk tea as well...but to actually lines up in close contact and risk being infected by Covid-19 virus just to get your last fix of the sweet drink is actually ridiculous. What if you were infected and brought the virus back home and spread the virus to your other family members? Is it worth it for just a few sips of sugary drink and sweetened "bubbles"? I guess the answer is a staggering YES.
Why live when you cannot drink bubble milk tea right?
According to The Straits Times, Singaporeans lined up at a Gong Cha store in Tao Payoh and at a LiHo outlet at My Village in Serangoon Garden. These Singaporeans who are addicted to bubble milk tea clearly did not give a damn about the looming pandemic which has caused them to be in lockdown until 2nd of June. To these oblivious self-serving Singaporeans, their mantra is, "SCREW Covid-19 Virus, I am going to get my Bubble Milk Tea anyway! Come and infect me if you dare!" We really need to applaud them you know. This is about getting your priorities right! *slow clap*!
