Ube Cake from Kaye Bakes

I continue my support of Filipino businesses and entrepreneurs by ordering Ube (purple yam) cake from Kaye Bakes. Kaye Bakes for Celebration Today we're celebrating three things: my mom's birthday, my youngest sister's high school graduation, and father's day. It only fits to order some cake, and I thought a cake we can't buy from Costco would be fitting. How I ordered from Kaye Bakes? I reached out on their Facebook page Tuesday to ask if they can do a Saturday delivery or if it's too late. I also asked for prices and if they can deliver. They were able to deliver on a Saturday at Richmond. I paid via Interac-E Transfer. Ube Cake Purple yam is famous in the Philippines. The colour is unique, and it's delicious! We love Ube cake in the Philippines, and I didn't think we would be able to enjoy some here in Canada.

Review of Haroo Korean Homestyle Cuisine

I've been to Korea twice and had a taste of Korean food in Korea. Haroo brings the Korean experience in Richmond with its homey ambiance and great food. Our family celebrated my mom's birthday and father's day. Since my mom has been raving about Dai Jang Kum and how she wants to bring us there to celebrate her birthday, Therese and I searched for the Korean Restaurant with the highest rating in Richmond. My Foursquare and her Yelp app both returned Haroo Korean Homestyle Cuisine . We arrived at Haroo at around 7:30 PM, it was a cloudy day and finding parking space was challenging. Be more patient when coming to the area on a busy weekend, since parking will be difficult. We entered the restaurant, and it felt like we were transported to a Korean home. We were seated in the corner booth and was browsing through the menu. We're not sure what to get because there are so many options! Jomar and I ordered Bibimbob, Japchae (mom's fave), and Jangban Mandu. The rest

Evening at Panda Market (International Summer Night Market)

My boyfriend is heading back to the Philippines soon. :( This is our last date in Canada, so we decided to check out the International Summer Night Market, also known as Panda Market. There are two summer night markets in Richmond; we decided to visit this one because it's closer to home. We had a great time! We had takoyaki and okonomiyaki while my parents enjoyed some fried squid. Okonomiyaki Takoyaki Food choices are few, but they were some unique items like the Chimney! Be sure to order it when you're in the Panda Market. It was the first time I had this Czech dessert. Chimney Collage! Parking and a long walk are inevitable. But overall, it was a great experience.
