it’s iced tea, and black balls of round jelly bobbing in the mix. have you tried this oddly fun drink? i don’t really like it, but mr. khairul can finish up to 3 glasses! haha.
i don’t really like iced tea, and i don’t fancy the texture of the jelly. it’s too gummy-bear like. oklah, it’s really NOT jelly. because jelly or agar-agar is soft. this is harder, and liat – like gummy bear! i mean i LOVE gummy bears. but NOT in a drink!
tak suka lah.
hey, i like drinks which come with jelly. cincau is one of my all-time favorite drink. but the feel of the strips of black jelly cincau is very different from the black balls in this bubble tea drink!

warning : drink carefully to avoid choking
there’s even a warning at the bottom of the cup to remind people of the possibility of choking on the big black round jelly! imagine slurping so fast – i bet the hard jelly pops into your mouth like paint pellets from a paintball gun!
keep away from toddlers!

we tried the drink while hanging out at the food court in dubai mall. mr. khairul’s mckk super-senior uncle dzul (he’s just a year younger from my abah) from yemen was in town for a few days, so we picked him up and hung out with another ex-mckk abang shon and kak muna over bubble tea, ice-cream and cut-up fresh fruits. sembang punya sembang berjam-jam!
but this is the kind of friendship that is priceless!

bubble tea? thanks, but no thanks. but you can always order 2-3 glasses just for mr. khairul!
