From left: Catherine Wan Ping Coombes, winner of MasterChef UK 2014 - her winning dish were Malaysian hawker favourites nasi lemak and wantan sup; Diego Garcia, an atoll in the middle of the Indian Ocean - one of the places where MH370 was thought to have ended up; actress Jennifer Lawrence was one of many female celebrities whose nude photos were leaked online - they were apparently stolen by hackers from Apple's cloud storage.

Nude leaks, nasi lemak, Diego Garcia – take another look at this year’s most-read stories in TSOL Lifestyle!

Based on the number of clicks we received from visitors to The Star Online website, we managed to compile data on which of our Lifestyle stories that received the most attention in the past 12 months.

While some stories, like the Hollywood nude photo leak, were predictably virulent, other stories such as Alternative treatments for dengue fever and Malaysian-born father strikes gold with Rainbow Loom in US were more leftfield.

Nevertheless, we’re happy that TSOL readers have made 2014 such a memorable one for the online team. Without any further ado, here are your most-clicked stories of 2014, in ascending order.
