the latest…

The top picture is from some cupcakes I made a few weeks ago. I planned to make a rose for each cupcake, but I just got exhausted from all the work. The bottom picture is a rough draft of a fucshia peony I’m making for one of my best friends.



Spring is finally here and I’m actually excited to embrace the warm weather and all its pollen. It’s still my least favorite season, but I’m ready to move on from such a harsh winter (especially since it ruined my skin). I guess the only reason I favor fall/winter over spring/summer is because I get to wear layers, boots, scarves, etc. Plus, I feel better when I’m fully dressed!

One of my best friends and I went to the beach yesterday to hang out and have a mini photo sesh. I was a little bit over dressed in my all black get up, but that’s okay. Traditional beachwear is not for me! =p

so excited to be drinking belgian chocolate & bailey’s irish cream milkshakes!!

ny pt.2 – kunjip & spot

After lunch, hours of shopping, and walking around Herald Sq, we wentย  to Ktown for dinner. I love me some Korean food. I think I’m always eager to eat some every time I visit because I don’t get Korean food like that at home. I’ve been to a couple restaurants on the block, but I can’t remember any of them. I also don’t know how to differentiate between the good ones and the bad ones. I usually just walk into one and find out later. There was one restaurant called Kunjip that was packed and had a line going out the door, so we decided to go there!

The best frozen yogurt in the world was next door, so we made a visit…

After dessert, we had more dessert at Spot Dessert Bar on St. Mark’s Pl. They serve cupcakes, seasonal dessert tapas, ice cream, and bubble tea! You can get 3 dessert tapas for 2 people for $19.99.

ny pt.1 – kittichai & cupcakestop

Hi folks.

I’ve been busy the past week, so I haven’t been able to update till now. I made a quick trip to NYC this weekend, and I have plenty of pictures to share! I’m going to break my trip down into several posts because I don’t want a photo overload for just one post. Plus, it’ll keep me busy the next few days…

As soon as we got in we settled down near Wall Street, grabbed breakfast at Starbucks, and then began shopping in SoHo. I made reservations for lunch at Kittichai, a Thai restaurant on Thompson St. that I’ve been meaning to eat at for a while. Let me just say that the food was great, the service was superb, and the decor was sooo nice. However, I’m a little upset that I missed out on the $20 brunch w/unlimited bellinis and mimosas. How did I not see that on the menu?!

getting to the food, don’t worry…

Northern Thai beef salad for the appetizer. Sooo flavorful.

Kittichai Pad Thai

pineapple braised short ribs in green curry, Thai eggplant, and sweet basil

Jasmine flan on a sweet & sour fruit salad w/Jasmine rice ice cream. The ice cream tasted like a flower, but a delicious flower…

Came across this…I heard about it on Twitter but I can’t remember from who…but we got the red velv & the nutella cupcake ๐Ÿ™‚ Yummy. Only took me two bites to finish one!

More to come later…

sweet prize

Some of you may have seen this on my Facebook…

But yesterday, I was looking at the right Facebook page at the right time. It just so happens that Just Cupcakes was offering a dozen free cupcakes & a pink shirt to their 2,000th fan. Luckily, I was only about 5 people away, so I kept refreshing and refreshing. Let’s just say that I have fantastic timing and I won ๐Ÿ™‚

I was really happy…not just because I got a bunch of sweets for free, but that I actually won a contest! I rarely win anything so this was such a delight for me. I’m hoping my next win will be one of the giveaways on Bakerella and Joy the Baker or even free beauty products! If I aim high, my next goal is to win the lottery! Haha.

the bailey’s irish cream cupcake. definitely a favorite of the night.
