Candy cane cookies

December 21, 2014

I’m away from home for the Holidays this year and that means I’m unable to experience the same Christmas I’ve been known growing up.

Although, I would much rather be home because I’m going to miss out on so many of the things I love about the Holidays this year like the desserts, the turkey and time with family and friends, I’m going to make the best out of my time away.

And writing, posting and editing the photos for my posts have definitely been helping me deal with my time away.

I mean, it’s just not the same with out all the traditional Festive foods I’m used to!

But that also means that I’m going to be able to try all sorts of new things here and experience Holidays in Asia for the first time in my life!

On that note, I have to go out to explore the city now, so I’m going to leave you with these delightful candy cane cookies and talk to you all later! 🙂
