what i did last xmas

l1040391sometimes i’m just so grateful i was born and am living here in SEA…all the best holiday places

are just at our door steps

best food, best friendly people, best service

for us in Singapore, our neighbour provides such a rich playground, and, its just a drive away πŸ™‚

we can have a great dinner, massage ..just at a fraction of what it’d cost in Singapore, enjoy life at a pace that is long lost overΒ here 😦

so, what did i do last xmas? Β took a random drive up to JB looking for some pond to do a spot of fishing but, ended up just enjoying the drive

i was really tempted, foot massage is excruciatingly painful in a very sensuous way..be very, very careful

l1040426

l1040423

and on the way home, i just could not resist buying nasi lemak from this tiny stall..

nasi lemak is steamed coconut rice, served with ikan bills (tiny fried fish) and a bit of boiled egg (that’s in Malaysia..over in Singapore it is always a sliver of an omelette…why? don’t know) wrapped into a tiny triangular packet of banana leave..so fragrant..best part?

the spicey sambal (special chilli paste)

no chilli, no life

a very quiet end to a tumultuous year
