Child friendly β€˜boba milk tea’ πŸ˜†

Hubby and I only tried twice – once from pasar malam and one real boba milk tea (I forgot what brand, but the one located right outside Courtyard SS15- hubby bought while we were waiting for the girls in Funtopia); we don’t really understand why people are raving over it πŸ€­πŸ˜‚ – it tastes like gula melaka/cendol drink 😝; somehow close to kurma milk.

And last week or so, I saw my friend posted about how to make boba – actually from sago πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ and added kurma milk, so I tried it today. 😁😁😁 Thanks for sharing EY! 😘

Our girls never tried bubble tea before – and when they saw these drinks, Noelle immediately said β€˜it looks like bubble tea’ πŸ˜† ok, able to fool a kid still.

– so the child friendly boba milk tea is made of kurma milk + sago + gui ling gao πŸ˜†πŸ˜†

Happy Monday!
