Where to Get Bubble Tea in Connecticut

When I lived in NYC, I was absolutely spoiled with the amount of bubble tea options there were in every neighborhood! After moving to Connecticut, it's been quite difficult to find places to satisfy that craving. My go-to drink is mango green tea with bubbles with 30% sugar, or a fruity milk tea. With this list below, I hope you find somewhere near you! Below, I've listed spots that are within driving distance from Fairfield County, CT, but are not in NYC (that's a whole separate list).

A Day in Mystic (aka a dessert crawl)


Before I start the post, please read "Evolving Beyond Performative Activism: 10 Way to Confront Systematic Oppression" by Gabby - if you have time to read about my day of travels, you have time to learn more. It's a list that everyone can start with. Also, you have time to sign the petition for Breonna Taylor at petitions.whitehouse.gov and visit Black Lives Matter.

Reflecting on Asian Pacific Heritage Month



I hope everyone had a great Memorial Weekend! Thinking about Asian Pacific Heritage month and MDW, I thought it'd be a good time to talk a little bit about my family moving to the USA, and the feelings Memorial Day brings me, knowing how my parents were able to come to the states. Being a daughter of Vietnamese immigrants, I am very thankful to be born in the USA, and am proud of my heritage. My mom came to the US in the late 1980s, and has lived in the Midwest ever since.
