Bubble Tea and 50%-Off Karaoke (Richmond)

Due to popular demand, we're organizing another Karaoke event!

On Tuesday December 3rd, we'll be doing a 2-part event, starting with Bubble tea and casual conversation at Yaohan Center food court at 6pm, followed by 50% off Karaoke singing at Richmond Karaoke K-Fever* at 7pm. You can choose to attend either or both by dropping in/out. However, we would like you to stay for the entire duration for Karaoke.

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 are welcomed to select songs that you are most comfortable with, which can be of any available language (Mandarin, Cantonese, English, Japanese, Korean, Spanish...). This is a social gathering event, so let's just have fun!

Cost: Bubble tea $4 (optional), Food court meal (optional), Karaoke $4/hr + 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 on meetup on whether you'll attend one or both parts of the event (please answer it!).

Contact person for this event: John @[masked]

*Richmond Karaoke K-Fever address: Union square,[masked] Capstan Way, Richmond (Tel:[masked])

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.

      Though many were late to Yaohan, we were the biggest group of people sat together in a small food court visible with one glance. On top of that I left my phone number here for you to call AND I was looking at the website/email for any messages. I tried my best, you have to do your part.
