Year of Monkey cookies

I have been really lacking in this corner of mine. Somehow can't find my mojo to go back to blogging since I came back.  Way too many events happening that kept me exhausted.

I hope after the Lunar New Year celebration, I can reorganized my life and set a more self discipline routine.

Then again, when I saw these really lovely Year of Monkey cookies and I just got hooked for it is so cute and it reminded me so much of my fondant playing day.
