Do you love CB?

A huge congratulations to Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf for their grand opening of their Manhatten Beach outlet. It looks like a super fun party!

I wonder if these tumblers will ever reach the shores of Singapore though, or other Asian countries with CBTL cause it will mark a PR disaster or a huge marketing blunder!

Why? CB in Hokkien (a Chinese dialect) is short form for Chee Bye. And Chee Buy means… pussy, vagina. Yup. Sometimes social networks is a bane for so many brands. If it were in the past, I’m sure that we would probably have never seen these photos.
