My dear friend Chaiyoung finally met the man of her dreams and is getting married!  She had kept everything very low-key so it came quick and sudden, but after seeing her photos with her fiance and hearing her talk, you can’t help but see how happy she is 🙂

Only the best for my Chaiyoung Bebe, I got a pretty Black Forest Cake from Case Del Pane, and Italian Bakery in Newport Village in Port Moody. Delicously decadent with big, rich white chocolate shavings and sumptuously juicy cherries in abundance this cake was just as gorgeous to eat as it was to look at 😀

  It doesn’t feel like a complete week without our weekly lifegroup evenings 🙂  

  Carmi is so sweet and always makes a point of having some sort of goodies when she and Evangel host.  Tonight she made this awesome Strawberry Pie-Cake!  Looks like a pie, but it’s cake inside~ 😀

  Indulgent but light, delicious and fresh, hot out of the oven goodness!  I don’t know how she has time to do this after a full day of work, but she’s a super-woman!  Thank you~

Sharing life, shooting the breeze, praying together and eating delicious snacks?  All good things, in my book ;D

Always nice catching up with a friend who understands, relates, and is grown up 🙂  Conversation over Extra Hot Caramel Macchiato and a Peppermint Brownie Cake Pop always makes it better 😀

  Mom had to go back home to teach, but I wanted to make use of the afternoon and explore the immediate neighborhood a bit more. Besides, with the slight jet-lag sleeping again now would just keep messing up my sleep-cycle!

I found this very cute little rice cake house.

I’m sure the employees were getting suspicious of this girl walking in and trying to be sneaky about taking pictures….lol!

Enjoying a morning Starbucks on the Upper East Side before going to Central Park.

Extra Hot 4-Pump Caramel Machiatto and one of their new anniversary delights, a Lemon Square!  Just the way to start the day

After a stroll around Central Park I needed some more Starbucks.  Oh, alright.  Truth be told I just couldn’t pass up the new Cake Pops they have.  The pink Birthday Cake Pop with the sprinkles were just calling out to me!

 

As of my first bite I am completely in love with it!  Moist cake on the inside with a super yummy melty frosting on the outside.  Super delicious and great for my sweet tooth!

After a long work day Eric and i hopped over to Koryodang for some late night coffee, cake & chat! It was a well deserved pat on the back after a long hard day, plus it was fun to bond with my new work dongseng, Eric~~!

I had an Iced Latte and Passion Fruit Cheesecake.

Eric had a Mocha Cake with his Iced Coffee.

 

 

 

 

In all honesty, we don’t really like the coffee here.  It’s not really all that good.  But you don’t have a lot of options for late night cake & coffee in Midtown’s Koreatown past 11:30pm…so, hey, we gotta make do!
