Fancy Ice Cream Cookies

Like any other festival,Christmas has been an important affair in Malaysia.Most shopping complexes and hoteliers around Malaysia take an active approach by putting up non-religious motifs such as snow, stockings, Santa and his reindeers, candy canes and, of course, the Christmas tree. White, green, red and gold are the traditional colours of the season.
Shopping malls and hotels especially have become increasingly sophisticated in their decorations, trying to outdo the competition in their bid to attract shoppers and guests.
Here in Malaysia, since we live in a multi cultural country with no snow. All Malaysians tend to celebrate all festive seasons visiting friends and families in their homes during the festive season.
In many ways however, Christmas in Malaysia is a public holiday and is still very much a religious affair. In between since it s school holiday here,many will take the opportunity to go for a holiday.To prepare themselves spiritually, the Christian community here, who make up about 7% of the population, observe Advent, the four-week period prior to Christmas, with prayers, Bible-reading and for some, fasting.
As it is customary in Malaysia during festivals, Christian families would entertain guests in their homes throughout the day, in adherence to the concept of 'rumah terbuka' or 'open house'. In a way, this unique practice makes the celebration of Christmas more meaningful, more in line with the spirit of the season.
Of course, the festivities wouldn't be complete without food. Though you may still find the traditional Western offerings of the season - from nuts and fruitcakes to apple pie and roast turkey - much of the menu is made up of local delicacies including such favourites as devil's curry and beef rendang.This is mainly because the christians here are mostly indian christians and chinese christians therefore there would be some indian and chinese delicacies influence in their dishes.

As the spirit of Christmas is fast approaching I am going to blog some festival dishes for all my friends , may it be cookies,cakes or cuisines.There is no doubt as to the many people who are celebrating Christmas have already written down a generous menu or a simple menu to serve their friends during Christmas.
