7 All-time Favorite Dishes Filipinos Serve on Christmas Noche Buena
If there’s one vice that shouldn’t be eliminated, that would be eating. Christmas is a season of giving, fun, and renewed association and bond with family and friends, and LOTS of eating. We can say that it is during this time of the year that diets are out of the list. Here are some of the all-time favorite dishes Filipinos serve on Christmas Noche Buena.
Who can ever forget this one in a Filipino feast? This has and will always be the star of any celebration. Also called litsong baboy, it came from the Spanish term that means “roasted suckling pig.” After seasoning, the whole pig is cooked by skewering the entire animal, entrails removed, on a large stick and cooking it in a pit filled with charcoal. The pig is placed over the charcoal, and the stick or rod it is attached to is turned in a rotisserie action. The pig is roasted on all sides for several hours until done. The process of cooking and basting usually results in making the pork skin crisp and is a distinctive feature of the dish.
It is the Philippines’ national dish, with Cebu being acknowledged by American chef Anthony Bourdain as having the best pig. The famous lechonmakers and sellers in the Philippines include Mila’s Lechon, Lydia’s Lechon, Aling Nene, Pingping, and Mang Tomas! You can even turn the leftovers into Lechon Paksiw so no part of the roasted pig ever gets wasted! Now, I’m hungry.
This will forever remain a favorite dish, especially with children. It’s been with almost every event that you can sometimes get tired of eating it! The good news is that many people create their own versions of spaghetti! But while spaghetti is preferred by foreigners to be a bit sour, for us, we prefer it to be sweet! Meatier and cheesier too! Our taste buds just beg to differ!
Probably the best alternative to lechon, ham takes the limelight of the food on the table during Christmas. It costs around Php 250 or higher, depending on the brand and the size of the ham. It is often bought as a gift as well. You might also consider it as a means of additional income during the Christmas season. Now isn’t that just great?
This is probably one of the most common dish on any Filipino occasion as well. Fried chicken is a crunchy, mouthwatering delight. The dish has created a large number of spin-off recipes which are commonly used around the world.
Christmas in the Philippines is rarely without fruit salad. This is very popular in the country because of the abundance in fruits. It is easy to prepare and considered a staple in parties and gatherings. Similar to the dessert Ambrosia, it differs in terms of the fruit ingredient. In the Filipino context, that usually means drained canned fruit cocktail and shredded fresh coconut tossed in a mixture of cream and sweetened condensed milk. But because fresh fruits cost a lot more than fruit cocktail, most Filipinos choose the latter.
This is a salad that everyone seems to love. Like other pasta, Filipinos come to develop their own versions of this popular dessert from the west. Aside from the usual macaroni, cream and mayo, it can be packed with shredded chicken, cubed cheese and ham, raisins and crushed pineapple. We have just turned it into something much more delicious to the taste – our very own twist.
Known by the world as the Spanish flan, leche flan is the one the wonderful ways to end the Christmas night with a bang. Leche, the Spanish for milk, is one of the dessert’s two main ingredients. Filipino leche flan is a rich steamed custard topped with a syrupy caramel. It is made with egg yolks, evaporated milk and sweetened condensed milk. It is one of the most popular desserts served at parties, fiestas and other special occasions. This sweet dish is also popular in some Latin American and Caribbean countries. Among the Hispanic population of North America, leche flan is also known as creme caramel.

We live in a fast-paced world and technology seems to be getting more and more advanced by the day. In a matter of years, what seemed to be impossible before has been surpassed and we are now looking forward to a future of great possibilities. But, let’s take a look at the thing that comes in handy — mobile phones. Here’s a list of this year’s best mobile phones of each brand (as of August 2016) to help you decide before switching or upgrading to a new one.
The beauty of Jade
This powerful phone continues the design excellence of the Liquid Jade line of smartphones. Its dynamic curves and hairline-brush finishing make this one of the most attractive phones, ever. The Jade Primo doesn’t just look great, it also feels great in your hands.
A truly exceptional display

A powerful 64-bit hexa-core processor and a whopping 3GB of RAM work with Continuum features to deliver laptop-like work
productivity. Seamlessly create and edit MS Office documents one your phone. Use your phone to show a presentation on any big screen while doing other work on the phone’s screen!
Powerful computing requires powerful cooling to make sure the phone does not overheat. That’s why the Jade Primo features an advanced cooling system consisting of metal piping that dissipates heat much more effectively than standard technologies.
Making big power small
The Jade Primo uses miniaturization technologies to pack all its computing power into an ultra-slender phone that fits perfectly in your hand. For instance, On-Cell Touch tech reduces the number of display layers and Laser Direct Structuring merges the antenna with the back cover to save space.

The all-metal miracle with invisible antenna
Every smartphone needs antennas but radio waves won’t pass through metal — that’s why so many smartphones designs are marred by ugly gaps. But not ZenFone 3 Ultra. Our world-class engineers’ pursuit of perfection and technical prowess ascend a new pinnacle with ZenFone 3 Ultra, integrating the antennas in such a way as to make them invisible. The result is gapless beauty and uncompromised signal quality. A sleek, diamond-cut wonder with an all-metal unibody that seems impossible — that’s ZenFone 3 Ultra.
The journey to perfection
We start with finest aerospace-grade alloy, precision-milled with 0.18mm diamond-cutting technology to create the optimum balance of strength and sleekness for ZenFone 3 Ultra’s all-metal frame. We then abrade the surface with a hyperfine sanding process, polishing it to a beautifully smooth finish — just one of the 240 precision steps it takes to create perfection.
All your entertainment, upgraded
ZenFone 3 Ultra means mobile entertainment as you’ve never before experienced. With its incredible display, advanced speakers and multitude of advanced audiovisual technologies, you’ll enjoy vivid details, smooth motion and outstanding audio pleasures. You’re even able to transmit your favorite content to any screen with a high-quality DisplayPort connection through its USB-C port. You demand the best video, music, gaming, and reading experiences, so demand the best mobile entertainer — ZenFone 3 Ultra!
ZenFone 3 Ultra is the world’s first smartphone with a dedicated display processor like those found in the latest 4K UHD TVs. We call this ASUS Tru2Life+ technology, and with good reason. Every pixel is optimized to deliver incredible contrast and sharpness for beautiful,true-to-life images. Tru2Life+ also has motion-estimation andmotion-compensation (MEMC) algorithms for smooth, blur-freevideo that doesn’t judder. And, with a 95% NTSC color gamut and 400nits brightness, you’ll view with real-world vibrancy.
ZenFone 3 Ultra’s SonicMaster 3.0 technology combines more audio innovations that you’ll find on any other smartphone — more volume, more quality and more effects. Dual five-magnet speakers are driven by a powerful NXP Smart AMP, for expansive, high-volume output. When it’s time for immersive listening, ZenFone 3 Ultra is able to output certified high-resolution audio to compatible devices at 24-bit/192kHz, or 4x CD quality! Then, ramp up the audio effects with DTS Headphone:X™ to pump virtual 7.1-channelsurround sound straight to your ears — another smartphone world first!
Capture reality, fast and steady. Ultra-fast 0.03s instant focus & subject tracking
Next-generation PixelMaster 3.0 lifts ZenFone 3 Ultra’s photography far above the smartphone norm. To capturereal-world authenticity, PixelMaster 3.0 packs a 23MP camera, 92MP Super Resolution technology, large f/2.0-aperturelens and subject-tracking TriTech auto-focus for any distance and lighting clarity in just 0.03 seconds. With both optical and electronic image stabilization for blur-free shots and video, and color correction sensor for true color photography, forget everything you know about smartphone photography — the PixelMaster 3.0 revolution is here.
ZenFone 3 Ultra has something no other smartphone camera has — its exclusive TriTech auto-focus technology. For the first time in the smartphone world, our engineers have combined three focusing technologies — laser, phase detection and continuous auto-focus — into one harmonious system. Resulting a clear focus in just 0.03 seconds in varying conditions, for all scenarios — and at up to ten times (10x) faster than the blink of your eye!
Steadily shot, shake-free photos and videos. Photos like the actual scenes.
While shooting photos, the four-axis optical image stabilizer (OIS) senses and prevents your hand movements from blurring photos. And for videos, a three-axis electronic image stabilizer (EIS) keeps your handheld videos rock steady.
Photos will appear as realistic as you view them, with deep trench isolation technology preventing photons of light from leaking from one pixel on the sensor to another, resulting in clearer details. The color correction sensor detects unusually-lit subjects and makes them look natural in the resulting photo. These are complemented by the 4x Super Resolution feature which creates a single, extremely detailed photo; andReal-time HDR that properly shows the resulting HDR photo as you frame it.
Speed and power revolution
It seems impossible that something as beautiful as ZenFone 3 Ultra could also deliver exceptional performance — but we’ve made the impossible possible. Its elegant beauty veils monstrous power, including a 64-bit, 1.8GHzocta-core Snapdragon™ 652 processor, 4GB memory and desktop-grade Adreno™ 510 graphics performance. ZenFone 3 Ultra also has 300Mbps 4G LTE and intuitive fingerprint security that unlocks ZenFone 3 Ultra in a fraction of a second — plus so much more besides.
ZenFone 3 Ultra is packed with an extremely high capacity 4600mAh battery to keep you entertained for as long as you desire. Its Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 technology can have it charged from flat to 60% in just 45 minutes. It can even charge attached devices as a power bank with a high current of up to 1.5A that makes charging up to three times faster.
New interface with added intelligence
Incredible hardware demands spectacular software — and that’s ZenUI 3.0. ZenFone’s sublime front end improves the standard interface in unique ways, and our latest edition includes brand-new ideas to brighten your mobile experience, improve productivity and make everyday life just that little bit more fun. See weather updates withreal-time animations, or check the time with a stylish clock widget. Feel the depth of parallax scrolling as you swipe through your apps, and appreciate how the subtle blurry effect keeps your focus on the foreground. ZenUI 3.0 isn’t just an interface — it’s the best friend who accompanies you everywhere.

Redefine what a phone can do
We’re completely changing how you’ll share experiences and memories. We’re doing that by shattering the boundaries of what a phone can do. And it’s the biggest thing to happen to phones. Ever. It’s not just a new phone. It brings a new way of thinking about what a phone can do. You defined the possibilities and we redefined the phone.
The beauty of what we’ve engineered is to give you the slimmest feel in your hand without compromising the big screen size. And the elegantly curved front and back fit in your palm just right. It’s as beautiful to look at, as it is to use.
Some of our most precious memories happen after dark. And this is the first smartphone camera to have a professional-grade Dual Pixel Sensor with which you’ll now be able to take crisp, clear photos in the dark. With Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, you own the night.
Mobile gaming just got a whole lot better with a dedicated game control center and gameplay recording. And with the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge’s powerful processor, it just got highly realistic.
We’ve redesigned the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge to have memory that expands at your will. The incredibly fast processors and huge RAM keeps everything running smooth even when running at full capacity. While the bigger battery keeps you going for longer.
Water & dust resistance
The Galaxy S7 and S7 edge go everywhere you go. In the rain, the shower, or the pool. Up to 30 minutes or 1.5 meters under. We’ve also worked out how to completely seal off the inside components while keeping micro USB ports, earphone jacks open, so you won’t have to fiddle with extra caps or covers.
Because we spend more time with our phones than ever before, we’re constantly devising ways for you to get what you need at a touch and at a glance. And these shortcuts will get you everywhere.
We built a fine line of accessories especially for your Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. They range from cases that do more than just protect to chargers that give you power fast wherever you are.

Our phones wouldn’t mean as much to us without the photos, files and data they hold. Transfer everything you need from your old phone to Galaxy S7 or S7 edge with the Samsung Smart Switch app. It’s incredibly easy.

If you’ve been drawn to the stlyish Kia Grand Carnival, but have been a little put off by its P2.3-million asking price (we can’t blame you for looking at the similarly priced Honda Odyssey instead), you’ll be glad to know that Kia Philippines is bringing in a more inexpensive version.
The new variant of the Grand Carnival will be priced at P1,575,000, and here’s the other good news: It will have 11 seats. At this point, one might expect a pared-down feature set, but Kia has still included competitive features that will make riding this minivan a treat.
The driver can enjoy a 3.5-inch OLED display, tilting-and-telescoping steering wheel, and what Kia calls a cutting-edge multimedia system. Passengers should appreciate the Euro-inspired cabin with flexible seating and cargo options. The second and third rows can be rearranged easily, allowing for versatile combinations of people and gear.
Parents will like the stainless technology cloth. This supposedly makes spilled liquids bead up and be quickly wiped away. Harder stains can be removed with soap and water.
Powering the Grand Carnival is the same muscular 2.2-liter turbodiesel. This is good for 194hp and 436Nm. You can feel the power for yourself by booking a test drive at a Kia dealership.
We’re personally curious about this new variant. A handsome 11-seater minivan for the price of a Honda CR-V sounds like a tempting proposition. This is one model we’ll put on our to-test-drive list.

HTC One M10 reportedly launching with a QHD AMOLED display, fingerprint sensor and Snapdragon 820 | Darcy Lacouvee
Now that it’s officially rumor season, we’ve been hearing an increasing amount of leaked specs and features that might be present on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 Edge and LG G5. One major manufacturer we haven’t really heard much about as of late is HTC, specifically regarding the upcoming One M10 flagship. As the successor to last year’s One M9, HTC’s next flagship needs to be innovative, unique and appealing to customers, as it’s no secret that the company has been experiencing some financial woes as of late. It turns out the device might just be what consumers have been asking for, at least if this new leak turns out to be true.
This rumor comes to us from prominent tech leaker @evleaks, writing for VentureBeat. Mr. Blass supposedly talked to a source that had hands-on time with a One M10 prototype. Referred to internally as the ‘Perfume’, the One M10 will reportedly feature a 5.1-inch Quad HD (1440 x 2560) display, which looked to be of the AMOLED variety. It’ll also come with HTC’s Sense 8.0 user interface atop Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. A fingerprint sensor will also be present below the display, similar to the scanners present on the HTC One A9 or the Samsung Galaxy S6.
Under the hood, the device will likely feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 with Adreno 530 GPU, which shouldn’t really come as a surprise. HTC has been pretty adamant about including the latest top-of-the-line processors in its handsets, and Qualcomm’s 820 chipset is one of the best currently available. It will also supposedly feature 4GB of RAM, as well as 32GB of on-board storage and microSD expansion. VentureBeat says the prototype device had 23GB of internal storage available to the user upon boot. The tipster said the device’s external appearance may still be subject to change, so they were unwilling to comment on the aesthetics. The leaker did mention, however, that there will be no Boomsound speakers present on the M10.
It’s no secret that HTC has struggled with imaging over the years. The One M8 toted the company’s in-house built UltraPixel sensor on the back, which ended up disappointing many users in the end. Then the company switched to a more traditional 20MP sensor for the HTC One M9, which turned out to be yet another disappointment. Surprisingly, HTC might be changing its ways yet again, as the M10 will supposedly launch with a 12 UltraPixel rear-facing camera. While the front-facing sensor’s resolution wasn’t specified, both the rear and front cameras will offer optical image stabilization (OIS).
We’re still not entirely sure about pricing or availability details, though previous rumors suggest the device could launch at a standalone event in March. What are your thoughts on the rumors so far? If this leak proves true, do you think HTC has a shot at winning back consumers? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

Apple is believed to be working on a new 4-inch iPhone, and now 9to5Macclaims to have details on what we should expect. The new phone is reported to be an improved version of the iPhone 5S: Apple is essentially said to be taking the guts of the iPhone 6 and stuffing them into the 5S’s smaller body. So this new phone would have the iPhone 6’s 8-megapixel rear camera, 1.2-megapixel front camera, NFC chip for using Apple Pay, A8 processor, and improved connectivity due to improvements like faster Wi-Fi. The phone’s body is said to be similar to the existing 5S, but with curved glass around its edges, like the 6 and 6S, rather than chamfered sides. It’ll also be available in all of the 6S’s colors, including rose gold. 9to5Mac reports that the phone will “likely” be called the iPhone 5SE, which is a fairly bad name.
WHAT KIND OF NAME IS 5SE?
The “5SE” name is not the weirdest thing about this phone, however. 9to5Macreports that the 5SE will support Live Photos. That’s really strange because the 5SE apparently won’t have a 3D Touch display. It’s really easy to imagine how Apple could make Live Photos work without 3D Touch — just use a long press — but it also kinda sorta speaks to the shortcomings of 3D Touch: that it often feels like a long press could accomplish all the same things. Nonetheless, it makes sense that Apple would want to spread Live Photos in an attempt to make them a popular picture format.
9to5Mac says it expects the phone to be announced in late March or early April; that’d fit the timeline of when Apple will likely announce a new version of the Apple Watch, as well. Apple is expected to discontinue the 5S once the 5SE is announced, so it should end up taking the 5S’s spot in Apple’s lineup, selling for $450. That means you shouldn’t exactly think of this as Apple’s low-cost phone offering. Instead, it may be the Apple has recognized it’s important to sell more powerful phones so that people buying its cheapest option aren’t immediately stuck with sluggish hardware.
Finding your perfect shade of red lipstick is on par with mastering a cat-eye or executing a DIY manicure: It takes work. And, because there are so many shades to choose from, we tapped 15 pro makeup artists to find out which classic red lipstick they always have on hand. Ahead, their universally flattering favorites.

Best Food Prepared on Christmas Eve
Merry Christmas po diyan! Malayo ka man ngayon, kahit paano naibsan din ang lungkot ko. Salamat kina ate Sally, Junjun at Papa. Pati na rin sa mga kapitbahay nating sila aling Nena at Bennie maging sina Lola Tacio at Lola Teresita. Silang lahat ang nagpapagaan ng loob ko. Syempre, isama mo na diyan ang isang masarap at masayang handaan na sila ang kasama. Pero wala pa ring tatalo sa sarap ng luto mong hamonado, leche flan at syempre ang specialty mong pancit for long life!
Salamat nga pala sa padala at makakabili na kami ng keso de bola, rekados at baka kumasya na rin ang lechon. Ma, Masaya kami dito sana ikaw rin. Baling araw, magkakasama rin tayo muli at ngayon pa lang eh excited na ako. Sige ma, I love you! Ingat ka lagi diyan, Merry Christmas!
Christmas is one of the most awaited days in a year. Before the 25th of December everybody gets busy preparing their homes and place for a warm Christmas aura. During these days malls and market stores are surely packed up with many customers buying their Christmas presents and cards for their loved ones. Filipinos celebrate Christmas not only to refresh and have fun but most especially to spend a merry quality time with their friends and families. Aside from the gifts and tokens, what they always look forward to see is the bright and genuine smile of the people dear to them.
Thus, Filipinos are very sentimental but at the same time a big fan of delicious and tasty eating. Noche Buena or the Christmas Eve is an important part of the whole party duration. Or shall I say the part awaited by everyone. Well, who would not want to taste all the yummy and appetizing trays of Christmas food prepared in the Philippines?
Keso de Bola. Or also called as Edam cheese. From the name itself, this is a round yellow cheese coated with a red paraffin wax. It is one of the most requested variant of food during Christmas season. Keso de Bola compared to other kinds of cheese is just mildly salty, and has no smell at all. This cheese can be seen in malls and grocery stores sometimes packed in bulk. It is also often partnered with loaves of bread, peanuts and other sweet delights.
Ham. As most Filipinos would say, “Mawala na lang ang lahat wag lang ang hamonado at keso de bola sa handaan”. It is a famous original Filipino dish made up of roasted pork rinsed and cooked in the juice of pineapple, orange or better yet calamansi. Filipino dish consisting of pork cooked in pineapple (and/or orange, calamansi) juice. The ham is allowed to marinate for quite long to absorb the delicious and fresh fruit sap within its meat until the Christmas Eve.
Barbecues and Lechon. These two are the part of the main dish in the Noche Buena. Barbecues such as chicken, pork, fish and hotdogs are quite a mainstream in every party food menu. Thus, commonly pork and chicken barbecues are prepared for Christmas. It is thoroughly marinated until it becomes tender juicy and ready to be cooked under the steam and smoke of fiery coals. Barbecues can be a great alternative for families who can’t afford to buy lechon. Lechon is known for its ‘worth savoring for’ taste and aroma. Filipinos always look forward to see this one whole piece of roasted pork. Though many can’t afford to buy it at its market cost, there are negotiable prices and alternatives for these lechon sensations.
Leche Flan. Leche flan has also been a part of traditional Filipino cuisines especially during Noche Buena. It is a custard dessert coated with egg and milk with caramel sauce on its surface. This sweet delight is known all over the world especially in Europe. Leche flan is also a perfect sweet present as we visit our loved ones during this special holiday.
Macaroni and Fruit Salad. After eating oily and meaty dishes, Filipinos tend to take the last portion of their meal. And that is none other than the sweets and deserts. Fruit and macaroni salad are just perfect to balance your appetite. The chunks and bits of fruits will allow the full stomachs to digest slowly and give a relaxing and vibrant feeling to the goers.
These are just some of the best foods prepared in the Philippines for Christmas. If you want to share your list of top 5 you can send us an email and let the whole world know. This Christmas, let’s make it memorable through giving it our best in preparing for the best!
