Sesame Candy with a hint of Cardamom and Ginger

5 years ago

A girl can never have enough shoes!! Never ever! Proved that
again this weekendJ
DH needed a new pair of sports shoe and we went down for the
Royal sports ware house sale! Sadly , he didn’t find any for his taste  , but I found a cute pair of lactose shoes. With
this black shoe, I think my shoe collection is just perfect,  almost have a matching shoe for most of my
pants..Great! Picked it!
Got out of the sale, what do I see? Crocs new arrival
collection! Now, I have to try that. I tried a few but DH started to bug me as
we had a movie to catch.All I could think during the movie is the cute little
black crocs shoe calling out for me “Buy me please..pretty please”!! My shoe
collection will be totally absolutely complete if I had that one more black
crocs shoe, I started to fell a  gravity
pull or rather a croc-ity pull. After 1.5 hours of  dreaming of the shoe in the midst of a movie,
I went straight to the shop and got that one as well and walked happily to MRT
doing the happy dance. Guess what there is a shoe sale in the courtyard, I
automatically started to do another round of shoe to dress mapping! Man I am a
shopaholic shoe-aholic! I NEED HELP!!!I NEED HELP!!


Now let us come back to Candy from my shoe craze. This flavourful crunchy sesame candy will make a perfect gift item if you can manage to resist
to spare any.
