I don't celebrate Christmas, hence the lack of frantic preparations and festivities. All that I looked forwards to is spending the day at home. I am one of those terribly boring people who does not like to go out. I am happy hanging around at home in my tee shirt and sarong watching exercise videos while munching on keropok or cookies. I'm pretty low maintenance and my partner does not have to worry about taking me on exotic getaways or think of ways to keep me amused during the holiday season. So what did I do on Christmas day?

There is a craze in recent times and it's Tomato Rice. I saw one or two recipes here and here. Then I went to watch it on Ochikeron. The recipe is a simple one, just rice, tomato, salt, pepper and olive oil. This cute Japanese girl was raving over it as she ate the Tomato Rice. I am sorry darling, my tongue long corrupted by the likes of sambal belacan, budu and fish sauce, is unrepentant and therefore cannot comprehend your enthusiasm.

Moving on with my stock clearance exercise, it is a really great excuse to bake some cookies! This time it is Nutella. Two bottles of it with bits of hazelnut chocolaty goodness sticking at the bottom and sides. Do you know what expired Nutella smells like?

When I was a little girl, I used to sit by my grandma and watch westerns like Bonanza, How The West Was Won and The High Chaparral. My grandma has a thing for cowboys. Cowboy songs, cowboy TV shows and anything cowboy. I don't know why. She referred to all those cowboy series as "cowboy phor" (cowboy story in Hokkien). So I guess I had a good dose of cowboys (and the occasional Red Indians) when I was growing up.

Do you like salsa? I love it a lot! The first time I fell in love with salsa was when I had it at my brother's house. I have another brother and this one loves to cook. A few years ago, he cooked a Mexican themed lunch when my parents came for a holiday.

It is now the final month of the year. How time flies! Soon it will be 2015 and that time of year again for new year resolutions. I am not in the habit of making resolutions but for 2015 I think I may have a few. "I will eat less carbohydrates" is not of them though hee..hee..
