Cake Cake Cake

The last couple of weeks was full of celebration!


Last Monday was my last day of training to be a nursing assistant. Well instead of training, my class and I just wanted to go straight to our picnic to eat sugary foods and drinks for a not so healthy breakfast! We ate muffins, animal crackers, wafers, Capri Sun, Tampico juice, apples w/ caramel dip and cake:




My instructor, Enid, picked out a cute little white cake with buttery cream frosting!










On Saturday night I went to my lovely friend's graduation party. It was journey to get her place (meaning getting lost along the way), I'm glad I made it on time! I loved the wonderful presentation of all the Filipino desserts, cookies, and cupcakes surrounding the cake. The Filipino desserts consisted of fruit salad on the very right, next to it are desserts made of sweet rice prepared in different ways! The three white ones are puto, which are steamed rice muffins, and sorry I can't remember the rest of the names of the other sweet rice dessert next to the puto!



This is the celebrant with some of her cake:




I know the cake is from Goldilocks Bakery. I didn't have to ask Michelle where she got it from because after the cake got all over her face, her intoxicated self caused her to keep saying along the lines of, "AH This was an $80 cake from Goldilocks!!" haha

Lastly, for Mother's Day, Bronsen made for my mom a moisty chocolate cake with strawberries inside. My mom ate it quite fast! I had to calm her down!

Herbs & Rye

After driving pass by  Herbs & Rye  for many years I finally went in to see what all the hype was about this place.  They serve classic cocktails that were popular during the Prohibition Era and before that time like the Gothic Age (unknown-1865) and Golden Age (1865-1900): Here's an example of of some of the drinks: I loved all the drinks they made, wasn't disappointed with any of them: Herbs & Rye also serves Italian food like  flatbreads , pasta, and  they're known for the steaks they cook, I'll try some next time!  I only had the appetite to drink: I really enjoyed my time here especially the atmosphere of a " speakeasy feel".  They get busy during the weekends so if you plan to dine in, make a reservation !

Hana Hou

During the last week of May, Bronsen and I went to Hawaii (my third trip) for vacation / family time / to eat! From my experience so far from eating Hawaiian local food, it consist an influential mix of traditional Hawaiian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Filipino, Polynesian, Portuguese, and American foods. If you're fond of any those ethnic foods like me, its like food heaven in Hawaii! We flew on our favorite airline, Hawaiian Airlines . Bronsen was hoping to get a nice meal than a snack because he always has a big appetite. His wish came true, the complimentary meal came with pasta with vegetables and vinegar dressing: and a big brownie!: Hawaiian Airlines going green: One night I was craving for saimin (ramen) noodles and spam musubi , a popular Hawaiian snack simply made with a block of rice, topped with a slice of spam, and wrapped in dried seaweed. Unfortunately, you can't see the noodles, its covered by the pork. I think there was more meat than the n
