Weeks after sharing a glimpse into veteran Workers’ Party (WP) politician Low Thia Khiang’s fun loving side, Non-Constituency Member of Parliament (NCMP) Daniel Goh has revealed that Mr Low may share a common interest with many young Singaporeans: bubble tea.
Bubble tea is phenomenally popular in Singapore and has achieved a cult-like following among the youth in Singapore. Food delivery platform Grab even launched a bubble tea subscription plan called Grab Bubble Tea Club last month.
Earlier this week, WP member Daniel Goh shared a photo online that suggests that his party’s former secretary-general may share young Singaporeans’ taste for bubble tea. In a Facebook post published on Tuesday (26 Nov), Mr Goh shared that he and Mr Low capped off a busy night of house visits with bubble tea.
Revealing that the photo was taken two weeks ago, Mr Goh said that they decided to indulge in the sweet treat to celebrate the completion of one round of home visits to flats in over 120 blocks in Bedok Reservoir Punggol division of Aljunied GRC.
Alluding to the Kung Fu Tea brand of bubble tea that Mr Low can be seen drinking in the picture, Mr Goh added: “Kungfu Cha for Kungfu Master Low.”

Earlier this month, Mr Goh – who accompanied Mr Low and Hougang MP Png Eng Huat to a community outreach event in Hougang – shared that while Mr Low is known for his seriousness in managing his estate and serving residents well, he is also very friendly:
“Mr Low is well known for his super seriousness when it comes to managing the estate well and serving the residents’ needs. He is also a very friendly MP genuinely interested in the lives of his constituents.”
Mr Goh also revealed Mr Low’s fun loving side and shared that residents and town council staff were amused to see the veteran MP showing off his cycling skills in the ward:
“I was driving out of the car park and saw a car turning in that suddenly stopped, the driver and his family transfixed by something around the corner. When I got closer, I saw Mr Low trying out his riding skills to the amusement of residents and Town Council staff. The driver and his family were laughing heartedly.”
