I have to admit, I have never been a fan of Gong Cha and I just donâ€™t understand why there would be long queues for this bubble tea drink. I just donâ€™t get the funny creamy thing at the top of the drink. Not only does it look icky, it tastes icky too. I once asked the staff what the white thing was, and was admonished with a â€œCREAM LOR!â€ plus an â€œare you an imbecileâ€ look.
I much rather go for Koi. It tastes more natural. Anyway the guys in my office go gaga over Gong Cha, so this post is dedicated to them. (And I thought only girls went gaga over bubble teaâ€¦)
During my staycation at Marina Bay Sands over the weekend, I discovered to my surprise that there is a Gong Cha there! When I say that Iâ€™m surprised, itâ€™s because MBS is littered with high end boutiques. And here comes a Gong Cha, where you need only part with a few bucks to make a purchase!
I donâ€™t think people know that Gong Cha has opened at Marina Bay Sands. Itâ€™s located at the less populated wing and quite near the end too. See, there are no signature queues here.
In fact, it was pretty funny to see a 7-Eleven next to Gong Cha as well. It seems to reinforce the idea that this is the â€œnot so high-endâ€ side of MBS, although this 7-Eleven does look more high end by 7-Eleven standards. Iâ€™m waiting for a McDonalds or KFC to open at MBS, do you think that would happen?
I would love for Marina Bay Sands to have a proper supermarket. There is a Cold Storage Speciality near the Rasapura Food court, but it does not sell meat and vegetables. There is definitely a huge need for that, because after having blown a few thousands on the new bag or at the tables, you might just find yourself not being able to afford room service!
