11.17.08 Fan Encounter: TaeYang @ Life is Just a Cup of Cake
It was a busy Monday morning as usual. We started the day with baking our morning batch of cupcakes and spent the early afternoon tending to our lunchtime customers. We were just about to take a break.
Outside the shop window, I saw a boy wearing his beanie just a tad tilted to the side walking past, followed by a woman in a fur jacket and precariously high stiletto heels – I assumed they had just finished their lunch at a restaurant nearby. The lady peeked inside our shop for what felt like a while and called the boy to come inside together.
The boy looked very familiar but… Could he be… a Big Bang member? But… I don’t know – something about him… He looked just like a boy next door, I hesitated to tell him I recognized him.
They must be on their way to practice. The stylish lady went ahead and picked cupcakes to fill a box “for us” and paid for them. Then she ordered another box for someone else. She wanted only four but we sold only by half dozen… Then she told the boy to pay for them. He approached the cashier counter pulling his wallet out of his pocket – now he looked more familiar. Still, I couldn’t be sure 100%.
I swiped the card and he signed on the receipt. It drew my attention how he wrote his name very carefully. Then they left. We were like, “He was Big Bang, right?” “Wasn’t he TaeYang?”
We decided to search the web to see if the signature on the receipt matched the one by TaeYang of Big Bang. And voila! They match!!! (Screams!)
There’ve been countless celebrities that came to buy our cupcakes but Big Bang!!!
They bought 12 cupcakes in total – which flavor is TaeYang’s favorite? Which one is DaeSung’s favorite? Imagining them eating the cupcakes we made, we spent the rest of the day happy!
