Review: A Slice of Cake Cafe

A slice of cake cafe

A perfect brunch place just a little bit outside of Dublin city center..

My husband took some time off from work a day before his driving test. He thought that taking that extra day to “keep the test away from his mind” may help him to pass the test. We definitely had an enjoyable (and rare) brunch date that day. But unfortunately, it did not help him pass it, sigh.
For that day, we decided to go somewhere a little bit outside of Dublin city center. We did not take our son with us and left him with the minder since we only planned to step out in the morning and come back after brunch. So we ended up having our brunch at A Slice of Cake Cafe.

Fab weather + Mother’s Day promo = great day!

Glorious sunny day for a run!

What a nice way to start the Irish Mother’s Day for sure!

Mother’s day is being celebrated a bit earlier than I got used to here in Ireland. I am not sure whether it applies to all European countries (or Commonwealth?). So, I am not accustomed to celebrating it on March.

Review: Pho Viet

A nice and warm bowl of pho at Pho Viet to warm our freezing hands..

It’s been a while since I had a nice, warm bowl of Pho. I guess the temperature didn’t plummet until close to the end of winter. Or, my soup cravings have been mostly satisfied by the nearby Japanese restaurant in IFSC. But one day after catching on some winter sales in the city center, I craved for some nice bowl of pho. That’s when we decided to go to our favorite Vietnamese restaurant called Pho Viet in an instant!

Paddy’s Day in Ikea!

On Paddy’s Day, we went to IKEA to buy some household stuff..

Let me start this post by saying that it is not what I initially had in mind. You know, this entire blog entry. But then, I guess I wanted to share something a little bit different (apart from food reviews and travel) in this blog – being a parent.
On Paddy’s Day, my husband and I planned to go to Ikea to buy a couple of household items. I made a list to make sure that I bought everything and to prevent myself from buying tons of things I don’t really need. Well, I ended up buying a couple of things I may not need. But still proud to say that I didn’t overdo it this time, yay!
