Ken asks…

How do you store tapioca pearls (used for making bubbles/boba)?

I bought some packages of (dry) tapioca pearls from a local asian market yesterday and made some bubbles for in the bottom of my thai tea (yum!), and put them in a plastic container with a lid on the counter. I went to make some today, and the container has quite a bit of moisture on the inside. The bag that I opened is a 5-minute type.

Is this normal? Should I put them in the fridge? Should I store them in a different container?

Thanks!
Sorry, I’m wondering how to store the (dry) pearls that are uncooked.

Bubble Tea Fun answers:

I am a former chef and had my first bubble tea in Singapore back in the late 1980′s, it was not new there, it is odd to find them wet or moist, the container may have had some water in it and you just need to store them in a dry cool place not in the frig.

I buy the larger sago/pearls, also known as fisheyes, they are not expensive and when I cook them, I place a pot of water (1 qt) on the stove, with about 5 tea bags and 1 cup of sugar and let it dissolve and steep, take out the tea bags, bring the liquid back to the boil and add 1 1/2 cups of the tapioca once it boils and simmer for 30 minutes until soften, then drain them and cool, I reserve some of the liquid and keep them in it in the frig and place them in the glass and make my bubble tea drink.

Robert asks…

Do you support Corporate Cronyism or Union Cronyism? If so why?

Corporate Cronyism is the unholy alliance between a politician or group of politicians to benefit one company or industry with favorable laws and regulations in exchange for political support and often financial bribery usually legal bribery.

Union Cronyism is the unholy alliance between a politician or group of politicians to benefit one union or all unions with favorable laws and regulations in exchange for political support and often financial bribery usually legal bribery.

They both obfuscate the citizens rights who the politicians are supposed to represent with the wants and desires of either a labor unions (see Wisconsin) or Wall Street (See Bush and Obama Wall Street Bailout)

Both parties are guilty of it, but the Tea Party is trying to get rid of it in both parties. Ear Marks are great examples of crony union or corporatism. Taxing efficient energy production and subsidizing inefficient energy production is another example.

Do you condemn both? If not then give me your best defense of either type of cronyism. If you don’t support them, it may be a good time to pass a constitutional amendment making it illegal.

The law would be something like this. Only US Citizens may donate to political campaigns. Not companies or unions. And tax policies must be applied without discrimination, no tax subsidies, credits, or different tax rates to individual companies or a group of companies. This would make sin taxes illegal (charging a higher tax for cigs and booze). Gov couldn’t give tax credits to clean energy or tank less water heaters or solar energy or …. Basically the gov couldn’t use its tax policy to try to manipulate the winners and losers in the economy.

Hey we all have something we like and would like to get it cheaper than the market can produce it. I like great wine. Well great wine costs about 50 bucks or more a bottle. I can’t afford 50 bucks a bottle except on special occasions. so I must live with $20 wine, I look for the best in that price range. Maybe because you hate plant food CO2 or maybe you’re employed or have invested in alternative industry. Maybe you are a farmer and want to be paid for not farming so you for politicians to give farmers an incentives to not grow food.

So if you’re not willing to give up your corporate cronyism (green energy, government funding for medical research) then you can’t expect others to give up theirs (wall street bailouts and housing bubbles). However if you are willing to give up your special deal you like then we can all get together and make it illegal for any of us to get special deals. Look, I’m giving up really nice wine, you can give up paying too much for alternative energy or housing bubbles to make and business bubbles in general that make wall street richer.

Bubble Tea Fun answers:

Both should be eliminated or at least fully exposed so the voters can reject them.
The only redeeming quality for corporate cronyism – at least you get something for your money.
Union cronyism only breeds malcontent and hatred.

Try ‘Two Buck Chuck’ = it’s as good as $20-$50 bottles and made from the same grapes – look up ‘Trader Joes’.

Helen asks…

What do you think of this extract of my story?

Hi guys, I’ve already posted this question under a different title, but I only received one answer. Although it was a lovely answer, I’d like some more people to read this small section of my book. This is the first time anybody has ever read anything of it, and I’m nervous, so please, be at least a little bit kind. Lol. I’m mainly focused on character development, and I’d like to know what you think of the two included below and their interaction.

Thankyou!

***

The lounge room was perfectly square and neat, and a tidy combined kitchen and dining room were visible to the left. There was also a hallway a short way off, which Meg assumed led to the bathroom and bedrooms. Most shocking, however, was a large bay window that sat majestic at the opposite end of the flat, exposing an exquisite panorama of the lake.
‘Wow,’ she breathed, and took a step towards the scene. Though the night was at its deepest, the light trickling from the various flats of the block gave the landscape a delicate glow. The water was an unspoiled, glittering green, its frothing edges bubbling at the rocks on the dry winter banks. Absorbed, she pressed her forehead against the cold glass, and tried to imagine herself pushing her big toe into the incandescent water. It would be freezing, but the idea still appealed.
There was movement next to her and she plummeted back to Earth. She turned to see Tom staring out the window and igniting a tea light candle in his hands.
‘It’s nice.’ He said, shrugging towards the lake. He spun around and walked away. Meg did the same, about to respond, when her mouth fell open.
He was gently seating the tea light on the lounge room floor. It was apparently the last of dozens, because the carpet was speckled arbitrarily with the little candles, illuminating the room with a squat halo. For a moment she simply stared, until her heart started thumping within her chest once more and she felt a sickening type of worry glaze over her. She was about the say that she wanted to go home again, but when she looked up at Tom, the words seemed to evaporate into nothing. He was scrambling in his backpack, and pulled out a deck of cards. He began to shuffle them in one hand; perfectly, evenly reordering them over and over. He watched her the entire time. After a moment he seemed to notice her expression, and spoke in the direction of the candles on the floor.
‘There’s no electricity.’ He said quietly. When she didn’t respond, he grimaced slightly and reached for his backpack again. This time, a fat bottle of what looked like tequila emerged.
‘Do you want a drink?’ He asked. Systematically, the wave of worry inside her became tidal. Candles. Alcohol. Isolation. Tom.
‘No thanks.’ She replied without a breath. He continued to watch her as he crouched and then sat on the carpet, his back leaning against the wall and his face basking in the timid glow of the candles. He cracked the lid of the tequila bottle; the noise echoed between them almost deafeningly. Taking a swig straight from the bottle, he frowned at her.
‘Just sit down.’
She was standing gingerly on the other side of the room, rubbing her arms for warmth or support, she wasn’t sure.
‘No, really, I’m alright.’ Her voice was an octave higher than she’d expected. She stared at him as he squinted at the tequila bottle, an acidic resentment bubbling in her belly. He was always so calm, so passive, whenever they met. She was constantly nervous and panicky in his presence. She attributed it mostly to the fact that she had spent a grand total of zero nights alone with any guy that she wasn’t immediately related to, and she didn’t know how many he had spent alone with a girl… She didn’t want to know, to be honest.

Bubble Tea Fun answers:

I loved it! Maybe at the end where it says,”an acidic resentment bubbling in her belly…” You could change belly to stomach! Other than that it was great! I would totally read it if it were to become a published book! =)

Go-go girl – You say Corp Cronyism creates jobs. Not really. Compared to what? Each gov action has an alternative action or in this case non-action. I would argue doing nothing instead of giving tax cut or tax increase to one company or set of companies would shift jobs (I agree with that) but no result in an net increase in jobs.
Ralph, none of your points are relevant. I’m not talking about taking away the rights of unions or collective bargaining or child labor laws or any of that.

My question goes to political corruption. When politicians become owned by union management, or CEO’s of companies that is immoral and screws up the fair bargaining. Unions should represent the workers and the owners (in a public union instance) are the American voters. The voters elected the representatives and in the case of Wisconsin the Democrats are wholly owned by union management.

Bubble Tea Fun answers:

As a worker, I support unions.

I support child labor laws, a 40 hour/5 day work week – you know, the things unions fought for. Wal Mart, the largest retailer in the country only recently started to provide health benefits to its workers. Currently there is a huge class action law suit against that company for discriminating against women. And they have no union.

I support collective bargaining. If corporate lobbyists are OK then I have no problem with union lobbyists. Balance is a good thing, in nature and between workers & corporations & government.

Let me introduce you to a new word – brevity. Jim Bay, say hello to brevity. Brevity, say hello to Jim.

As always, have a nice day.

It was so warm out – how warm was it? – I gave the dog a much needed bath.
