In the morning of December 24, 2011, I already started preparing food for our noche buena. I only prepared three recipes. That is pork menudo, pork adobo and beef kare-kare. It was my first time to cooked the beef kare-kare. According to my husband, it was not attractive to look at but it taste good. I was so happy that my family like the food I prepared. My son made an ubi jam for our dessert. My hubby bought one pork ham and ice cream as ordered by my youngest daughter. After the Holy Mass at 1:00 a.m. we went home and the kids and I eat our noche buena. My husband was not around as he has his duty as a security guard. The following morning, December 25, 2011 we attended another Holy Mass scheduled at 9:00 a.m. at the Tagbilaran City Cathedral. At this time, my hubby was already with us. We went home together with our son and youngest daughter. We eat our simple celebration the four of us at home.
