A little get together with my friends in a charming little cafe for dinner. It is actually a surprising nice find by Yee. Shame I forgot to get photos with them, so I can post it here too! Maybe next time. :D The tea came with the tea pot and everything was so cute that I had to take photo of it.
Really wanted eat some cakes today, especially cheesecake, and chocolate cake. I have tried a lot of different cheesecake in Taiwan, but so far only Starbucks have ones that's more like what I'm used to in US. Starbucks cake is a bit more expansive, but as a special occasion we got some from here anyway. Also a lot of chocolate cake seem to just use cocoa powder instead of real chocolate. I'm sad about that. Don't get me wrong Taiwan have a lot of nice food, but more westernized desert still need some catching up. Saying that the local sweets like sun pie from Taichung & milk pie from Taipei are amazing.
今天超想吃起司&巧克力蛋糕的,在台灣試過蠻多起司蛋糕的但最像我在國外習慣的是Starbucks的吧,所以今天特別去了Starbucks買些蛋糕雖然有點貴但算是偶爾對自己好一點的機會吧~~ 還有很多巧克力蛋糕在台灣好像是用可可粉作的而不是用真的巧克力這點有點可惜~~ 但當然台灣還是有很多自己的美食.
Anyway, the little creature in the photos is the PG tips tea monkey, who call himself by Monkey, he is quite an important member in the family. ;) Love tea and food, especially sweet food. Cloth peg on his back is his lucky item.
這隻在照片裡的小動物是PG TIPS tea money,叫自己Monkey,是我們家裡很重要的一員喔~~特別愛奶茶&食物尤其甜食,背上的曬衣夾是他的幸運物. ;)
OH my! A whole two boxes of cakes. Monkey looks so happy.
Trying to open the box.
Mille Crêpe & New York Cheese Cake!
It's the Banana Chocolate Cake.
Trying to get his hand on it. :D
Made this last winter when I saw the recipe for Caramelized Banana on the TV. The crepe I made it was a bit too thick so it look more like a cross between pancake and crepe. Top it all off with my favorite tea from Dilmah. Anyway, that's what I love about winter, shame it is hot as hell right now.
