The KFDA confirmed the detection of benzopyrene in the six (types of) noodles. We are blocking the inflow of the noodles as such products do not meet China’s quality standards” a Chinese official said.

This is also to inform everybody to keep an eye always on the imported foods that we are sporting from the groceries. If you suspect any carcinogenic contents, better get rid of those food and report to the legal person immediately.

CBTL Carrot Cake

If only all vegetables can make into a cake, then all must be my favorite then.

By far, my favorite vegetable cake is this carrot cake. This is the reason perhaps why the first cake I almost always look for in any cake houses or coffee shops is carrot cake. But this time, I will have you here a carrot cake from Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf or CBTL.

I wasn’t sure where CBTL branch was this but what I can remember still is that during this time, I and two of my friends were trying to find promotional backpacks. And if I am not mistaken, this was on March 2012. But I am not really that sure, though.

Anyway, this carrot cake, as you can see it from the image above, was really tasting yummy and delicious. And of course, as its name implies, it is very nutritious too!
