Candy Flowers - street style


taken last New Year's Eve market rush. Holidays are really jam-packed markets, streets and products. even these candies - its a candy cane but flower shaped - find a place on the streets.

I go to the market almost every day at 4:30pm but on that day was my first time to see these candies for sale.

I just remembered my kindergarten days in La Union, I skip class and go to the market to steal - yup steal - these kind of candies and the local candy we call ( in Ilocos) "balikutcha". Man!!! these candies are d****m so hard biting it will break your jaws and teeth thus its a must to let it just melt slowly in your mouth. not to mention the tooth decays it will cause after eating it . Since our family is well-known in the market - my grandfather is a town vet and market tax collector - therefore after breaking my jaws, i must nurse my broken hands after my aunt hit it with every might with a ruler. aww, dats life :)

Have a great sunday to all :D

Ayoko nito kasi nagkukulay pink ang dila at ngipin ko! Saka sugat ang dila ko kasi-sipsip. =)
