The announcement that bubble tea, confectionaries and dessert shops will no longer be allowed to open from April 22 caused a frenzy amongst Singaporeans.
Bubble tea shops islandwide saw long queues form late into the night on April 21 and delivery apps were overwhelmed with a surge in orders as Singaporeans did everything they could to get their last cup of bubble tea for now.
