Ho Ho Ho Merry Christmas: Are Those Famous Amos Cookies said Santa!

It’s the most magical time of the year! Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, Christmas is here! 

As the air fills with a crisp wintry chill (especially at home or in malls), or at least we’d like to imagine so here in Malaysia with the aroma of warm spices, Christmas – the most enchanting time of the year, draws near. It’s a season cherished worldwide, not just for its festive decorations and twinkling lights but for its deep-rooted significance. Christmas isn’t merely a holiday; it’s a celebration of love, generosity, and the spirit of giving.

Centuries before our time, the middle of winter was a time of celebration, where early Europeans celebrated light and birth in the darkest days of winter. They rejoiced during the winter solstice, when the worst of winter was behind them and they could finally look forward to longer days and extended hours of sunlight. Christmas is also a time that is significant to some of our brothers and sisters who celebrate the occasion each and every year – a time of festivities, a time to share with loved ones.

As the final weeks of the year approaches, we begin to wind things down, focusing instead on plans with the family, on that hobby with our loved ones that we have been putting off or even plans to go on a food hunt with our closest friends. At its core, Christmas embodies the values of compassion, togetherness, and the act of sharing goodwill. It is a time for us to reflect, regroup and refresh before we begin channelling all our focus into yet another year to be awesome. It is a time that beckons us to embrace the joy of giving, cherishing moments with our loved ones, and spreading warmth to those around us to re-energise and wrap up the year on a strong note.

Santa and his love for cookies!

In the realm of delectable treats, Famous Amos stands as an icon, delighting taste buds for generations with its exquisite cookies. Crafted with meticulous care and a touch of enchantment, Famous Amos cookies are more than just delectable goodies; they encapsulate the essence of celebration and the magic of the season.

One of the biggest traditions for as long as we can remember is that on Christmas eve, Santa visits children from all around the world in his beautifully lit snow sleigh, led by the magical reindeers whom we all know as Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen, Rudolph and Olive. With Rudolf leading the way as the ninth reindeer, his red nose lights the way through the stormiest winter nights helping Santa make sure that he visits every single child around the world before morning comes. 

Depending if children have been really naughty or behaving nicely, as the story goes, on Christmas eve, Santa lands his sleigh on your roof, squeezes through the tiny chimney into your fireplace in the living room where the Christmas tree is set up and he then checks on the kids on how they have been. Now if only they have been found to be nice, does he then leave Christmas presents under the Christmas tree for the children to open up on the first Christmas morning. 

Now here is where it gets interesting… before Santa leaves for the next house, he will always look out for a glass of milk standing next to a plate that is filled with the very best cookies. They are none other than our all-time favourite homemade delectable Double Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies. 

So kids, you better watch out, you better not cry, you better not pout because Santa Claus is coming to town! If you know what’s good for you, you’ll go to bed early on Christmas eve and be on your best behaviour!

P.S. Don’t forget to put a glass of milk and a plate of cookies out for Santa this coming Christmas!

Delectable Diwali with Famous Amos: The Meaning of Abundance Through Cookies!

Prosperity and Abundance:

Diwali, also known as the Festival of Lights, hails from India and is celebrated by millions, including the Hindu migrant populations that have established themselves throughout the world. This festival holds profound significance for our Hindu brothers and sisters. Much like the concept of a New Year, Diwali is a time for renewal, gratitude, and prayers for the year ahead. It symbolises the triumph of good over evil, light over darkness, and, at its core, the strength that resides in the presence of light, signifying hope.

The story of Diwali unfolds over several days, and on the third day, the deity Lakshmi is invited into homes in the evening, celebrated as the bearer of Prosperity and Abundance. During this period, Hindu devotees come together within their families, cleansing their homes, adorning them with colourful decorations, preparing offerings of fruits, with special significance given to mangoes, symbolising love and auspiciousness. They also light oil lamps as offerings for the evening prayer as a source of light.

Goddess Lakshmi bestows blessings that encompass beauty, intelligence, abundance, and, above all, wealth and prosperity. In the first week of Diwali, after the family prayers and offerings, households commence preparations for extravagant feasts, to be shared with friends and family near and far in the weeks to come.

Diwali is not only a time for reflection and devotion but also a season of splendour and abundance, where homes are adorned with brilliant decorations and vibrant colours, symbolising the festival’s essence. The significance of this celebration is best understood through the act of giving, expressing gratitude, and sharing blessings. As devotees invite Goddess Lakshmi into their homes, they open their hearts to the spirit of generosity, signifying that abundance is not merely about material wealth but about the richness of heart and soul.

The Malaysian Tradition of Open Houses:

During this time, devotees who are brimming with hope and aspirations for a fantastic year ahead, practice giving and gratitude. They start their new year by embracing the act of giving and being grateful. This spirit of sharing is exemplified by the tradition of open houses, where friends from diverse cultures and backgrounds come together to celebrate. It is a time of unity when we celebrate with our friends during this auspicious festival.

The tradition of open houses also involves the art of giving delectable treats to the hosts, strengthening bonds and spreading harmony. For hosts, it is an opportunity to showcase the warmest form of hospitality and express gratitude to those who hold significance in their lives.

transcends cultural and religious boundaries, reflecting the rich tapestry of Malaysian society. The act of giving and receiving gifts during open houses underscores the spirit of Diwali and strengthens the bonds of friendship and harmony.

Known as the “Festival of Lights”, Deepavali celebrates the story of Lord Rama’s return from exile and victory over the demon king Ravana. It is a tale of good triumphing over evil and light conquering dark.

This is why Deepavali is all about celebrating “light and happiness” whether literally, with fireworks, candles, lanterns, flowers and colourful rangoli kolams. OR by bringing “light” into people’s lives. Festive gestures like opening homes to guests, hosting feasts and conveying well wishes are some of the ways one can illuminate another’s life. But our personal favourite has to be the exchange of delightful delicacies!

Whether you’re lending a helping hand to a neighbour or sending a box of scrumptious delights to a friend – whatever you’re giving, it’s a definite way to make anyone’s day! The contents of your gift may fade with time, but the act of giving will always be held dear to the receiver’s heart.

Breaking fast with something sweet

During Ramadan, unity between loved ones can be found not only in gift-giving, but also in the indulgence of something sweet come Iftar (breaking of the fast).

Consuming sweet treats after a full day of fasting isn’t just reserved for those with a sweet tooth – it’s essential to help the body’s blood glucose levels return quickly to a healthy state, which is why most people break their fast with dates, coconut milk, high-sugar drinks, and deep-fried snacks.

While young children often look forward most to this sweet treat, this sweet tooth also carries over into adulthood. From the toasty crunch of Famous Amos cookies, to indulgent pisang goreng (deep-fried bananas), there’s just something deeply comforting about basking in the flavours of your favourite childhood treats.

Savour this Ramadan with your loved ones

It goes without saying that a handful or two of sweet dates is typically expected at the dining table during Ramadan, but a key component to this ritual can be found in its togetherness. After all, every meal tastes better when paired with good company.

Fasting and breaking fast together provide a wonderful opportunity to bond with your loved ones. Even if no words are exchanged during the meal, everyone at the table sees the value in the experience of relishing every bite together and finding solace in one another’s solidarity.

With sweet delicacies and gift-giving sentiments at the heart of Ramadan, what better time to literally (and metaphorically!) sweeten someone’s day?

The Magic of Auspicious Hamper-Giving in Malaysia.

Gift-giving has always been part of the Malaysian culture as an expression of generosity and care. And one of the most common forms of gifts in Malaysia? The much-loved gift hamper.

By definition, a “hamper” generally refers to a wicker basket used for carrying clothes or food. In Malaysia however, a hamper typically refers to a basket filled with a collection of specially-curated gifts for the season.

Be it Chinese New Year, Christmas, or Hari Raya – seasonal hampers are embedded within Malaysian culture – so much so, that hampers have become ubiquitous with our local festivities and celebrations.

The perfect gift for every occasion

From baby showers to business milestones (and every festivity in between), the beauty of the hamper lies in its versatility.

Visiting the in-laws for Chinese New Year? A hamper will do the trick elegantly. Congratulating a longstanding client on their firstborn? A carefully-curated hamper will get the right message across.

Not only does a collection of little gifts presented beautifully feel more celebratory, but a hamper filled with a variety of little gifts is automatically better than a single present or gift card. After all, who doesn’t like more gifts?

Appropriately thoughtful and personal, it’s no wonder why gift hampers in Malaysia have prevailed over all these years.

The making of a great gift hamper

What makes a good gift hamper great? We like to think that three components go into the equation – the relevance, the quality, and the packaging.

Aside from being appropriate to the occasion, a relevant hamper should also be gifted with the particular recipient in mind. Rather than a one-size-fits-all approach, a sincere gift starts with thoughtful curation and selection of each item that goes into the mix.

With your theme and recipient in mind, the quality of the gifts should also be well-considered for. When in doubt, a careful selection of premium gifts beats a jumble of substandard items any day.

The final touch that ties it all together? The packaging. From baskets to mugs to reusable tins – your gift hamper can be housed in any array of packaging, and further dressed up with auspicious touches and personalised cards. Let your creativity run wild!

It’s the insides that count

Like any other gift, the quality of what’s inside the hamper is paramount.

Usually filled with items that you know the gift-receiver will either like or need, the hampers themselves are also decorated beautifully to further add to the magic of it all.

For instance, baby shower hampers often feature adorable little baby outfits, baby bottles, and nutritious baby food. A Hari Raya hamper on the other hand, may be filled with delicious Raya cookies, traditional kuih, and batik scarves.

Come Christmastime, you’ll find hampers filled with beautiful ornaments, candles, and festive beverages (think mulled wine and hot cocoa!).

Looking for something a little more premium? A stroll down the luxury grocery aisle will also see specialty gift baskets, carefully curated with the finest treats of caviar, premium wine, and coffee roasts.

Think of the luxurious Lunar New Year hampers you know and love. The finest ones often sport high-grade abalone – an appropriately festive gift for its cultural significance of good fortune and abundance.

Clearly, these baskets of auspicious joy are almost limitless in their options.

Have extra time on your hands? You could even take a more meaningful route by curating a personalised hamper, filled to the brim with handpicked gifts. You could even include some items that you’ve made yourself for an added touch of love.
