HardwareZone's 10th Anniversary: The 2001 Refresh


Bubble Zone!!

Bubble Zone!!

Mix Bubble Tea and HardwareZone, stir and the answer is Bubble Zone! Yes, we used to run our very own bubble tea drinks and snack stall at a prominent location in the basement food center of the Sim Lim Square (SLS) IT and electronics supermall. HardwareZone then squarely focused on PC component and technology reviews only and our local target audience would naturally hit the famous SLS mall which is the defacto place for such products then. The Bubble Zone initiative was a side venture to promote interactivity among our community and other like-minded folks to gather for a cool drink and catch-up on both technology and casual matters. And of course an alternative form to spread our HardwareZone name and branding.

What's special in Bubble Zone that's different from all other bubble tea shops then were the specially concocted drinks that's unique to us and were even named after famous forum 'celebrities'. No amount of words can describe the interesting taste of these drinks, but all we can tell you now is that you would have enjoyed them one way or another. This service lasted for a little more than one and a half years as beyond that point the bubble tea craze waned away and our own focus was shifting towards our core strengths. Here's a few screenshots from the once www.bubblezone.com.sg that housed info of Bubble Zone and the complete drinks list of those interesting days:-
