TV host Vivian Lai opens bubble tea shop in Esplanade Xchange
You have seen commercials where Vivian Lai touts beverages for Pokka.
Now, you can visit a bubble tea shop run by the 42-year-old.
Called Teabrary, it is located in Esplanade Xchange and her star power and on-site presence have drawn queues.
The business also has branches in Cambodia, China and Taiwan.
Mediacorp host Lai told 8 Days that she brewed up the venture here since Singapore is “a hot, summery country (and) so it makes sense to sell drinks here”.
She is a hands-on boss, revealing that she sampled “thousands of cups for R&D till my stomach hurt”.
“I have been coming down to the shop to help with the operations after my filming. I do washing up, and I have mopped the floor,” added Lai who was recently in the news over her husband’s woes.
