So many ideas have taken root, so many seeds planted. It's been a powerful, enlightening 2015 -- trying at times, but those moments make you stronger, and hopefully wiser, better, more patient. Leaves had to be shed, and branches cut off for new ones to sprout. Before we dive into the new year and its possibilities, I'm taking a moment to acknowledge the present. For the present is awesome, and without it I couldn't go daringly into the future.

There is a shortage of frozen turkeys in Singapore (supply meeting demand is better than having too many leftover frozen turkeys in the market, I say), so it's grass-fed beef for Beef Wellington this year.
At the Asrils', we're making more informed choices: In the Omnivore's Dilemma, Michael Pollan made me believe grass-fed is better for you because cows' stomachs were meant to digest grass not corn. Meats from grass-fed cows are also proven to have marginally higher concentrations of antioxidants, some vitamins, linoleic acid, and 50 per cent more long-chain Omega-3s (though still below that of fish).
That said, beef is not planet-friendly, and not everyone can afford it, so we're thankful to be able to practice our choices, and to be able to indulge this way once a year.
Happy Holidays, everyone.
