5 Lyrics To Describe Our Reactions To Gong Cha's Return

By  December 3, 2017

Its back!

In June, we said goodbye to one of the biggest bubble tea chains, Gong Cha. Franchisee Mr Rodney Tang announced that all the Gong Cha outlets island wide were going to be converted into home-grown brand Li Ho. The news received mixed reactions from Singaporeans and many scrambled to get a cup of their favourite drink just before the shops get converted. In fact, many braved the long queues at Gong Cha’s last store (was located at Marina Bay Sands) to get their very last cup of bubble tea.

6 months later, Gong Cha is finally back! Whether you are still contemplating on patronising the newly reopened chain, or if you are already in queue eagerly waiting for your turn or sipping on a cup of Gong Cha right now, we’re here to concoct 5 relatable lyrics for their return.

 

1.     I Miss You – Clean Bandit ft. Julia Michaels

I miss you, yeah, I miss you
I miss you, yeah, I miss you, oh, I do
I miss you, yeah, I miss you

Some of us can’t live without music, some of us can’t live without coffee and maybe some of you can’t live without Gong Cha? If Gong Cha was your go-to bubble tea chain, then this song would be most relatable.

 

2. Finally Here – Flo Rida

That day is finally here
That day is finally here
That day is finally here

When the newly built SingPost centre opened in October, rumours started surfacing that Gong Cha was going to make a return to Singapore. Things were confirmed when a shop was spotted with the brand’s posters all over the windows but we still had to wait a couple of months till the drinks were being served. No more waiting now (except for the extremely long queues)!

 

3. Everybody (Backstreet’s Back) – Backstreet Boys

Everybody
Rock your body
Everybody, rock your body right
Backstreet's Gong Cha’s back, alright

It is time to celebrate! Not only because the Holiday season is here, but also because Gong Cha is back. We’re sure we have all sent our pals or received articles about the chain’s return.

 

4. Worth It – Fifth Harmony

Give it to me I'm worth it, baby I'm worth it
Uh huh I'm worth it, gimme gimme I'm worth it
Give it to me I'm worth it, baby I'm worth it
Uh huh I'm worth it, gimme gimme I'm worth it

If you decided to brave the long snaking queues and make it all the way to the order counter, this is for you. Maybe this song went through your mind while waiting to collect your favourite cup of bubble tea? We definitely give you props for braving the crazy queues!

 

5. For The First Time In Forever – Walt Disney Records for Frozen

For the first time in forever
There'll be magic, there'll be fun

6 months could be “forever” to those hardcore Gong Cha patrons, and for the first time they’ll be able to get their favourite cup of bubble tea again. There was a lot of hype around the new opening and in fact queues started to form the day before the store’s opening.
