What is Trypophobia?

It’s an irrational fear of irregular patterns of holes or bumps, and although it’s said to be a fear, the reaction is a bit more like disgust.

But today’s story is a little more than that. It’s a story about human stupidity and foresight.

We’re not really here to trigger your hidden fears, so here’s a warning.

The real story is just a ChaTime employee dumping tapioca pearls to the brim and gets a mix of comments with 1 mentioning trypophobia.

Previously, kids dressed up as Bubble Tea for their Halloween costume.

It wasn’t scary, oh it wasn’t. It looked like such an innocuous move. Haha! So cute! What’s so scary about Bubble Tea? Everybody laughed. But little did we know, it was a warning.

Those kids saw something. We just didn’t see the signs back then.

Then CNA came up with a video on the amount of sugar in Bubble Tea. We only focused on the views. The views! People talked about the sugar, but no one cared. Sugar levels are just a number, they said.

Bubble Tea was literally holding knives at our throats, and we simply didn’t care enough. We were willing hostages at this point.

They got closer each passing day. We went from drinking to always wanting them by our side. We worshipped them and placed them by our beds as shrines. It’s a lamp they said. It’s only $16 they said.

But it went beyond the bed and we started doing explicit sexual activities with Bubble Tea. We didn’t just do it in secret. We were so willing we even shared it to the world.

It was such an achievement that other people did it and started a sharing chain.

Our shame was all over social media, and no one could stop what was going to happen.

No one was willing to.

Then it happened. A girl was actually pregnant with bubble tea. That’s when we got a little scared.

Are you angry at someone now, and can’t get him or her out of your mind? Well, watch this video and you’ll know what to do next:

Holy shit! This was what we’ve been doing to ourselves?

But it was already too late. And most didn’t even budge.

Asian Horror Stories: The Bubble That Doesn’t Pop, Episode 6?

The bubbles. They won’t stop growing. They were everywhere.


It went from just 20% of the cup to 100% of the cup.

(True story is a Chatime employee abusing her complimentary drink privileges, posted on Facebook group ‘subtle Asian traits’, goes viral with 1k shares and 21k reactions. Some comments want that, some say it’s a disgrace to bubble tea, one said it’s trypophobic.)

Netizens applauded at the proliferation of bubbles. We took it as a sign of prosperity.

How could we not see that it’s a sign the bubbles wanted to get out of their cage?


Got out of their cage they did. Perhaps the pregnancy of the girl was the host they needed to be summoned to the world.

They grew on stuff they shouldn’t. Like a pancake.

And then crabs started growing bubbles too.

These people can fool me and say it’s edible. I have seen enough warning signs and can only tell you that those are eyes, signs of the forthcoming of the Elder Thing. They are watching.

Despite the warnings, we were digging our own graves willingly. Soon they will be growing on our walls and floors as well.

There will be no escape.

Based on true case files of At the Mountains of Bubble Tea, coming to theatres soon.
