Since I started to make gingerbread man cookies last year, it has become a tradition (I guess) to make it again this year. In fact, I was in love with these cookies perfumed with aromatic spices. Using the same receipe but I half the amount ground ginger to suit my son's palate. Both of us enjoyed icing on the cookies. My boy also even attempted some snowflakes which I recalled he did not dare to to do it last year. As I was counting, he actually did 12 out of 25 cookies !! Can you spot his creations? I thought that was a remarkable improvement for a boy! We gifted some to his playmates; a pair of twin girls, Pei En, Pei Xing, their grandma and his Malay friends/neighbours. He chose to give away mine and kept his cookies for his beloved jie jie (s), Christine and Evelyn and 'Yi gu' whom would be flying to Singapore from Penang for holiday on Christmas Day.
It was also a timely reminder to teach my son that Christmas is not only about receiving presents but giving as well. To make it meaningful for the little mind, we bought a brand new softtoy earlier from Ikea which we dropped off at its designated box to be donated to unprivileged children.
Merry Christmas to everyone!
