Yet another outlet of Chatime has opened up in Vancouver. It’s been quite a while since I’ve been to Chatime and although it came from Taiwan, during my year living there, I have never seen a single store! I know what a surprise right?
Mother deer got a cake from Anna’s cake house for lil’ bun’s birthday. We never get our birthday cakes here but they’re pastries are quite good so we figured that we would give it a try. And boy…it was not a very good call to make because we were definitely not impressed with this one.
