Episode 2 – Would you like bubble tea?

If you go to Taiwan, you must try beverage shop, and order some milk tea.
Wu hong-yu has lived in Taiwan for 3 months. Taiwan is called the paradise of amazing food, but she even loves Taiwanese drinks more, because it can satisfy all people. Today, on her way back home, she stopped by a drink shop. Hello, what would you like to drink? I would like a bubble tea. For here, or to go? To go, and I would like to use eco-friendly cup. Ok, large, medium, or small? Large. Sugar? Half sugar. How about ice? No ice, please. Ok, one bubble tea, large, half sugar, no ice, and using eco-friendly cup. How much is it? Original price is 50 TWD. There is a discount on using eco-friendly cup, so it’s 38 TWD.
Hi, What a coincidence. How much is it? It’s my treat. That’s ok. I’ll pay myself. My treat, my treat. By card or cash? Credit card. OK.
Sorry, sir. We don’t accept the credit card issued by this bank. Would you mind pay by cash?
From 50 TWD, your change is 12 TWD. Thank you.
This is your drink. Thank you. It’s my treat next time. I’m looking forward. Goodbye.
