Cherry blossoms in Shanghai


Did you know cherry blossoms only bloom for two weeks and at a certain time of the year? Sometimes they bloom earlier and sometimes a little later in other places due to the weather and the changing climate of the seasons. Even with all these variables, one thing is for certain: they always bloom when they are ready.

There are so many things that we want in our lives... like the perfect relationship, starting a family, figuring out what you want to do, finding a career you love... Some things don’t happen when we want it to and we feel like it never will... Until later on, it does. And when you look back, you’ll realize that everything that did or didn’t happen was for its own reason. So to all my friends, rest assured that no matter where you are in life right now, you are exactly where you’re meant to be. Everything you want is already within you. When the time is right, the doors will open, and you'll be ready for all the wonderful things that come your way.

Rilakkuma Dessert Date At 1Cake


Rilakkuma + dessert?

For anyone who knows me and my obsession with cute things - I'm down for rilakkuma themed ANYTHING. My cousin bought me to the cutest dessert in SM Plaza on my last night in Xiamen. We had dinner at Coco Nini and she said she had a "surprise" for me after dinner. We ended up at a dessert bar and I  actually squealed when I walked in. 

1Cake at the SM Plaza in Xiamen is literally a dessert and flower shop combined into one. I loved everything about it! We shared a rilakkuma cheese cake paired with sweet milk tea (for her) and camomile tea (for me).  The cheesecake itself was average, but the setting and ambience was quite wonderful. I initially thought the cake was made in the shape and design of rilakkuma, but on closer inspection, it was sadly just a rilakkuma bowl. BUT, they let you keep it. That's a plus in my books! I just wished they had let us keep the flowers, too!
