This past Sunday was a day I will never forget. I got to go into the city to see one of my bestest friends, Kaede, who was leaving to go back to Japan. She was an exchange student at my university, and we literally are one in the same. I love her so, so much.
She’s so cute right?
Well the day was spent doing my favourite thing: eating. First it was Japanese ramen.
The shop is one of the most well-known is all of BC, and it takes literally an hour just to get in. You even have to wait outside! Thank goodness it didn’t start raining until after we finished out meals. The ramen was the best there is, though I, myself, am not a huge fan of Japanese ramen. It is just too plain for me. I guess I’m too used to the Korean version, with multitudes of spice.
So after the ramen, it was on to macarons at my favourite little bakery.
The bakery is called Thierry, and it’s located right in the centre of Alberni street. It can be quite crowded, but the experience is definitely worth it. It’s filled with all kinds of pastries and desserts, and there’s a coffee bar as well (they make more than coffee, though). Our macarons were salted caramel (the light brown ones), lychee (the pink ones), and a mixed berry flavour (the purple one). My favourite by far were the salted caramel. It was a shame though, as they were not serving my all-time favourites, the vanilla bean ones. Seriously, you need to have these in your life.
Close-up shot, anyone? Makes me hungry just looking at it.
Later, we even went for gelato at a famous gelato shop on Robson. Delicious, that is all I can say. They literally have any flavour imaginable, it’s fantastic. I got white chocolate and oreo cheesecake. What can I say, I have a sweet tooth.
Our final food stop was at a Korean restaurant I love. I ordered the kimchi stew, aka 김치찌개, which is my love. Seriously, I could eat this stuff for the rest of my life.
After a little while, we decided to take pictures, and Alston (our guy friend who was with us) took a couple OOTD photos for me, so here you go:
I’ll list everything I was wearing at the end of this post. I just love the background. The location was gorgeous.
In all, it was an amazing day. Tears were shed, and hugs exchanged. I’m going to miss her beyond belief but I know this is not the last time I will see her. We’re too good of friends for that.
Here’s my items worn:
