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.

Desserts from Ice Cream Parlour

We had the Ice Cream Parlour inside the Burnaby Village Musem. It feels like we're in the 1920s, eating at this place. We only are interested in their yummy looking cakes.

Lunch after Boxing Day shopping at Ryuu Japanese Kitchen

After four hours of shopping and buying all the things we need, time to have lunch at Ryuu Japanese Kitchen!
