Bubble Tea and Karaoke (Richmond)

The hosts of Richmond/Oakridge Mandarin Meetup are happy to organize new activities suggested by some members. If you have any new ideas, please suggest them to any host. We will try our best to organize them.

 

This Thursday Nov 15th, we'll be doing a 2-part event, starting with Bubble tea and casual conversation at Yaohan Center food court at 5pm, followed by Karaoke singing at at Richmond Karaoke K Fever* from 7pm-1am. You can choose to attend either or both by dropping in/out. However, Karaoke is a fixed cost (all you can sing) for the entire duration.

As per our regular meetup, we will converse in Mandarin & English. Speakers of all levels are welcomed to this event. You do not need singing background to attend Karaoke. You will select songs that you are most comfortable with, which can be of any available language. This is a social gathering event, so let's just have fun!

Cost: Bubble tea $2-$4 (optional), Food court meal (optional), Karaoke $15+tax

Please make sure you come when you RSVP, so we can coordinate easier with the expected numbers. When you RSVP, we will ask you a question whether you'll attend one or both parts of the event.

For those not sure what Bubble tea and Karaoke are...

 

Bubble tea, also known as pearl milk tea, boba milk tea, or boba is a tea-based drink invented in tea shops in Taichung, Taiwan during the 1980s. Most bubble tea recipes contain a tea base mixed with fruit or milk. Ice-blended versions are usually mixed with fruit or syrup, resulting in a slushy consistency. Most bubble teas come with small chewy tapioca balls (粉圓, fěnyuán), commonly called "pearls" (珍珠, zhēnzhū) or "boba" (波霸, bōbà).

There are many variants of the drinks, and many kinds of types are used and ingredients added. The most popular bubble drinks are bubble milk tea with tapioca and bubble milk green tea with tapioca.

 

Karaoke is a form of interactive entertainment or video game in which amateur singers sing along with recorded music (a music video) using a microphone and public address system. The music is typically a well-known pop song minus the lead vocal. Lyrics are usually displayed on a video screen, along with a moving symbol, changing color, or music video images, to guide the singer. In some countries, a karaoke box is called a KTV. It is also a term used by recording engineers translated as "empty track" meaning there is no vocal track.

    Thanks all for being cooperative with tonight's arrangements. I had a great time singing and listening to a wide variety of songs... all the way from the oldies to the classics to the modern pop! Look forward to seeing you at our regular Wednesday night casual conversation meetups or at other fun social events in the future.
