Time flies...

When the weekend arrives, it'd dawn on me that another week has passed. (I can't believe it is already mid-May!) These short breaks allow me to pause the hustle, breathe a twist of fresh air and reflect on life. :) Restaurant-hunting is one of my favorite activity and here are some places for you to check out if you're around the LA area...
Malibu Yogurt & Ice Cream ~ Location: Malibu Colony Plaza- Pacific Coast Fwy @ Webb Way
A Garlic Restaurant~ The Stinking Rose!!!
we smell "garlic-ky" :p
Their famous garlic reslish: the waiter said that it is a blend of fresh garlic, cilantro, vinegar and oilve oil.

OOKA~ A fancy Japanese restaurant at Riverside Plaza...Happy Birthday!!! Yay, I'm a year wiser... ;p

Eating Bibimbap in a Food Court in Orange County...

and it is located beside Paris Baguette: 5307 Beach Blvd, #108, Buena Park, CA 90621. Paris Baguette is awesome, serving a wide variety of french and asian breads, and BINGSU! Their green tea, yogurt and red bean flavors look very tempting~ too bad we were in a rush and couldn't indulge in them. Next time... :p

"Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light." Matthew 11:28-30

Thank God for all His promises! I'm blissfully basking in His love. :)

2- tier Heart-shaped Anniversary cake


for Pastor Randy Roberts~ Senior Pastor of Loma Linda University Church

I received a call requesting LLUBMC Nutritional Services to cater the cake for them the next day. It was last minute but we readily accepted their order.

Flavor: Fresh Strawberry Cake with Freshly whipped vanilla-infused cream

Fresh flowers were rinsed in water before use.

Did you know that Pam is sprayed onto the flowers to give it a shiny look?

after smoothing it with cream, and decorating with flowers, the words "Happy Anniversary Pastor Randy and Anita!" comes next.

Transporting them in huge containers before the final 2-tier assemble.

K doing the finishing touches...

Final product~ lovely :)
*edit: What was made with the extra whipped cream...cupcakes!
