A most unlikely combination indeed. Something that I have never seen before. But yeap, there are rambutans and durians in the market. I put some on the Christmas tree in my house and they do look pretty as ornaments, don’t they?
Durians! In December too. Not sure which state of Malaysia these durians come from. (forget to ask the seller) But they do taste ‘not bad’ considering this is not the season for durians, not until the month of May-July.
I am all ready for Christmas. Bought the above turkey from Tesco, costing RM54 at 4.5kg. The turkey is from Norbest, USA and has a built in timer that will tells me when the turkey is done. Cool gadget, eh?
It is going to be my first adventure in roasting a turkey. Glad that I found a wise auntie from my church who will provide me the recipe (yet to get at time of writing). She had spent a few minutes telling me what to cook for the vege, potatoes, soup and stock. Yummm….
If you are interested to buy some leg of lamb, turkey or any speciality food for Christmas, do grab them now before they are sold out. Cold Storage in Penang has a lovely range of Christmas goodies (all expensive and exclusive) and I do wish I can afford to buy all those lovely chocolates and candies. Hehehe, a box of novelty chocolate from Cadbury can go as high as RM130 per box. Phew…
That will be our tropical Christmas of durians, rambutans and turkey.
