Vacation Part 2: Noche Buena At Sabin Hotel

I did not expect the hotel will host a Noche Buena (Christmas Eve Dinner) free of charge for two guests.  The front desk staff called last night and asked if we would be interested to join the Noche Buena at midnight.  I did not confirm because we just came back from a Christmas Party at my parents’ house and we’re all pooped out!  My husband said that if I will go the Dinner, take my sister with me because he is definitely sound asleep at before midnight.

I fell asleep about an hour.  My sister was already sleeping so I tried waking her up so we can get ourselves ready for Noche Buena.  She did not get up until we heard the fireworks outside.  We got excited.  But when we headed out, we saw only the last part of the fireworks show and it was over.

Anyway, it was really nice for the hotel to host the Christmas Eve Dinner.  They had roasted pig, broccoli beef, teriyaki chicken, macaroni and chicken salad, mixed veggies, pasta, cake, pineapples, and free servings of drinks too.  I was guessing that they are doing this every year.


Though the clouds were trying to block the moon, it was truly a lovely Christmas Eve.
