Though we don’t get white Christmases here in the tropical heat of Malaysia, Christmas is still one of the most wonderful times of the year. For us, ‘tis still the season for jolliness, merriment, and an excuse to overindulge and cheat on our diets. From trees decked out in glittering baubles of every shape and size, to the intricate decor of snowmen, reindeers, and snowflakes, it’s easy to get into the Christmas mood. Nothing does it better than the Christmas food, especially buffets!
