I am back. Back home after the much needed short getaway. Before I left, I told my mum to hold on to what's been bothering her - getting a second opinion about her health which wasn't a critical situation. She however has taken the matter to a whole new dimension and in return has created a big atomic bomb.

Just to update you that I am still not back home. In fact I wrote this recipe before leaving for my holiday. Now that I am rushing for time, I am going to keep it simple without any long winded stories. The only thing I like to say is that its not the most prettiest and impressive cheesecake. Yet the easiest and cheapest to made - minimal ingredients and you save on electricity too.

Let me begin by saying that its a favourable start for the year. I am in the midst of packing and leaving - No! No! Not leaving the country neither leaving my other half. That will never be the case because I love my country and I love my man and his money as well. No doubt I will miss "sambal belacan" and I will also miss my man. But then again I can't force him to travel and let me tell you that travelling alone is safe. He likes to work, so be it. I like to see the world and its fine with him.

Unlike my leisurely shopping trip three days ago in Klang, this time it was purely straight to the point - collect my saree blouses and have lunch before coming back home. There was no time to walk from one eatery to the other neither to debate or argue where to eat. We agreed over this eatery which we used to visit many years ago. If I am not mistaken, that was about more than 10 years.

Klang as you know or you don't is the shopping paradise for all sorts of Indian things. Tengku Kelana Street is ever popular all year around and it can be like a mad house during the weekends. I usually avoid coming over unless of course when I have to buy sarees and Indian costume jewelries. I do agree that it’s the best place for those things because choices are aplenty, good bargain and excellent customer service especially in saree shops due to the intense competition for customers.

Did you know that in 1884, the first modern red lipstick was introduced by perfumers in Paris? Surprisingly, its combination of deer tallow, beeswax and castor oil did not stop the women from getting their hands on their very own red lipstick. This seduction of red certainly reminds me of old-school Hollywood glamour, Greta Garbo and Marilyn Monroe to be specific! Many of the current A-listers are also rocking the red lip trend perfectly.

When we arrived at the hotel after the long journey with a stop over at Century Sultanhani Caravanserai, we were gently reminded to pay up for the hot air balloon ride - the main highlight in Cappadocia, reputed as one of the most popular spots in the world for ballooning. The ride is scheduled in our itinerary but its optional. For those who opt out, they can do whatever they like for the few hours the next morning.

In another few hours time, the bells will ring to usher another new year. I foresee and I know that people will jam the night clubs and the streets to welcome it. I on the other hand have only one thing in mind - to sit in front of the tv with a glass of wine and watch a movie. Gone are the days of partying, spending lots of money, being with the company of the so called good friends and jumping high up to the sky to usher the New Year.

From Pamukkale Thermal Pools, we came back to the hotel for our "beddy-by-time". The next morning after breakfast, we travelled again for quite a long journey to Cappadocia. In between we stopped for lunch - another buffet style similar to the one we had after visiting Acropolis of Pergamon. It was definitely a feast for those who are not shy to freely stuff themselves with food. I one the other hand am not someone who will "pig out" to rip the maximum because I have paid for it. I eat sparingly and I was satisfied.

For me, life's little pleasures is about meeting up with friends who make an effort to meet up over a good meal when they are back home for a holiday. I definitely was looking forward to seeing my two friends after a lapse of two years. They called to confirm the date, time and location. We met at the main road of Kota Damansara and from there, we casually strolled to this Japanese restaurant they were familiar with while it was my first time.

As mentioned previously in "Vanilla - The Mille Crepe Cafe", I opted out from working but I was still around for about one month to fulfil the contractual requirement of serving notice. With that in mind, I gave up on packing food from home. Instead, I went all out in my mission of conquering as many eateries in Subang Jaya. Nevertheless, for the years I have been working in this area, I have tried quite a number of food outlets but still, there's a whole lot more I haven't been to - those that have been existing for a long time and those newly opened ones too.

I am still away but I know that I can't remain where I am forever. Whether I like it or not, I have to come back home and start earning money again. Otherwise there will be no more Cinderella time and travelling. Anyway lets just forget about the power of money for the time being and talk about other things more pleasurable in life like welcoming Dongzhi, Winter Solstice Festival with a bowl of tangyuan dumpling in syrup.

I am currently enjoying every moment of my winter holiday. The weather over here is freezing cold but I am coping well and its a great feeling that I don't have to cook, clean and do any housework. I still have a couple of days to enjoy my Cinderella time before I get back home. So far, the food is not too bad especially the varieties of soups to keep me warm and cuddly. However nothing like a bowl of home made piping-hot and spicy tom yam soup with noodles.
