First off, let me say wow. This video by Nino’s home is very well put together. I was hooked immediately when I watched it because of the great sound and video quality. The ASMR (Autonomous sensory meridian response) in this video threw me off with a surprise. Not a lot of people would understand what I am talking about, but specific sounds can trigger the human brain to send tingles and sensations such as crisp sounds. In this case, I love the sound of the drink being poured in the ice or the sound of the chip crunch. Everything about this video is so cute. From the cat in the video to the cookware. The type of humor in this video makes me laugh and it seems like a short film. There are subtitles you can follow throughout that will help. I can tell that Nino puts a lot of effort into his video because every edit was made seamlessly. This was my first time watching one of his videos, but he just gained a subscriber!


Some and most people have not heard of bubble tea, but it’s one of my favorite drinks. There’s not a lot of good places here in Tennessee that sells this drink. There are way more authentic places in California or Atlanta. The tapioca pearls throw a lot of people off because of how slimy and squishy they are when you chew them. Think about the consistency of eating a soft sweet gummy bear. The tea is sweet, milky, and creamy.
