If you're wondering who our 2 friends are below, I will explain. When we were outside enjoying our sorbets, 2 boys came up to us selling books about Cambodia. We felt bad refusing and repeating ourselves, "Sorry, we don't need the books." Trust me, these boys don't take "No" for an answer. They kept insisting we buy the books and that they were very cheap. The books were cheap -nothing more than $10- it's just that we really didn't need them. Then Aileen offers, "How about instead of buying books, I buy you 2 some ice-cream instead?" The ear to ear grins on their faces said it all. It was so cute, Aileen and the 2 boys went to the counter and she let them choose their dessert. You could tell this was such a big treat for the 2, and just seeing how thrilled they were... Priceless.

After our dinner at Cafe Central, we felt like it was too early to go home [the time was about 11:30ish]. We weren't looking to go out clubbing or drinking, but we did want a reason to hang out before going back to the hotel... This was obviously a no-brainer for me, did I hear DESSERT?! And just like that, we landed at Blue Pumpkin. At the time, I thought we were pretty impressive for scoping out a fun, foodie spot - little did I know, Blue Pumpkin is thee place to go for ice-cream, breads, pastries and that of the sort. They also serve light snacks, sandwiches, coffee/tea and shakes. We saw quite a few outlets planted around the city, even at the departure area of the airport. Anyways, we made the right choice indeed. I had a refreshing passion fruit sorbet and Aileen a creamy coconut scoop.
