“nochebuena” often translated as “Good Night”, is a Spanish word referring to the night of Christmas Eve.For Filipinos, noche buena is associated with food and fun with family right before midnight strikes.Christmas Eve is always fun, full of joy and excitement.

For Filipinos outside the country, we still manage to keep the spirit alive by celebrating nochebuena with fellow Filipinos. The same kind of food, the same kind of fun are being shared, to fill in the empty feeling of being away from our families..

This year’s Christmas is entirely different from the ones I grew up with..but I will continue to thank God,and I will forever be grateful for the greatest gift of all – JESUS. Happy birthday, lord! 🙂



Merry Christmas from Serangoon, Singapore. ^_^
