For noche buena—the most loved family time of the year—Glenda Barretto shares her favorite recipes with Lifestyle.
Are we still standing at the edge of the stable?
When I was a child, Christmas was a time for family. Gifts exchanged were tokens of love and peace. We sent Christmas cards by mail, would you believe? The Noche Buena table was a feast, except during the war when food was scarce and spirits were at an all-time low.

Why not a Noche Buena in Bora?
At Boracay Garden Resort, specifically, which bills itself as “the only property in the island where guests may take leisurely walks around the breezy, tree-lined property.” That luxury, quite scarce in Boracay where most establishments consist of tightly packed concrete structures, comes courtesy of the resort’s enviable size—some 1.5 hectares of open space big enough to accommodate three swimming pools side by side with landscaped gardens, cabanas, a poolside bar, and wide patches of either grassy or tiled open space for walking around.

Five ways to bust the holiday blues
Last night, I started working on our Christmas tree. I had not done that with much enthusiasm for a very long time. After dinner, I began to wrap and twist yards and yards of lights around the stems and branches of the tree that has been with my family for the last 12 years. I’m not done yet. It will probably take me another day to finish.
Easy-serve ice cream you can make from leftover fruits
Fruits and ham have always been the stars of the Noche Buena table, but each year, there always seems to be something new—a new fruit, a new ham, or a new way of serving fruit or cooking ham.

How to make the most of your kids’ Christmas vacation
We get it—you’ve spent the past weeks running around like a headless chicken. You were buying gifts, wrapping gifts, herding your family from one reunion to another, slaving over Noche Buena and Media Noche, being stalked by inaanaks and dancing “Gangnam Style” at Christmas parties.
