Lighter side, on random coffee, cakes and cookies

DanteThinking about too much stuff just makes you hungry and sleepy sometimes. When conference food just isn’t enough, there are times that you just step out and see what else is out there. Dante Coffee Shop is fair. After the National Human Rights Museum tour, there is just that desperate need for coffee. We have not eaten for six hours.

DSC02364Conference cakes could be really nice and pretty though. If you catch it. This is a gold-dusted Tiramisu and it was divine.

DSC02363Cookies kept me alive and sane while I was waiting for my turn in the conference. Again, absolutely divine.

DSC02372I just kept on munching on the conference cookies.

And when things are really much too much, there is a Starbucks a block away. Soy caramel macchiato anyone?

And perhaps a pastry?

Due to the lack of time or the constant rush for it, I never got to buy a bread from this bakery. And it just looks so yummy from the outside! Oh well… And more coffee and cakes stories to come. Seriously. This is just day three.

#gamerchef making friends with more temple cats. One of them thinks he is a great, comfy bed. So cute. #cats #catsofinstagram #catsofyangon #temple #travel #yangon #myanmar Will really miss Myanmar... #buddha #travel #yangon #myanmar I wanted something local nearby to eat for our last lunch here. They came up with this one, they say its Kachin food. Hope it is good. Lol. #lunch #food #travel #yangon #myanmar Waiting for the right light. It feels like half of Yangon is here. #travel #pagoda #yangon #myanmar What do locals do on a Sunday? #park #travel #yangon #myanmar Back in Yangon. They let us check-in early for free as returning guests. Yay! But no breakfast, so we ventured out in the market a block away. Found youtiao that people buy as soon as its cooked. Also some fresh strawberries. We just asked for tea at the hostel. So good. Yangon, so far, was kindest and easiest for us. #breakfast #travel #yangon #myanmar
