Saku Saku Panda Presents Suntanned Panda Biscuits

Dearest readers, I have been away from this blog for ages and ages. I just wasn’t feeling up to it. When I’m ready, one day perhaps I will be able to talk about why, but for now I’m just trying to get back into some kind of posting schedule. I decided to make a comeback…
