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
With the extra whipped cream left from the Anniversary cake, K. made 3 types of cupcakes~
Caramel- chocolate swirl cupcake topped with heath crunch
Fresh strawberry vanilla cupcake
Lemon juice infused into freshly whipped cream on vanilla cupcakes.
"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!
