This year's Christmas was extra special mainly because I celebrated it with my hubby in HK. Usually, we would go home to Manila for the Holidays, but with my baby due soon, we decided to stay put here. At first, I was a bit apprehensive and reluctant to spend the Holidays in Hong Kong as I spend every Holiday season in Manila.

Though the HK's main religion is not Catholicism, most residents are keen to celebrate Christmas. The city certainly does celebrate the holiday, gets into the spirit of things, spruce up the malls where you can hear Christmas carols playing in the air. During the season, the weather is nice and cool with temps dropping to the low teens C. With the decorations, nice weather, off course endless shopping makes HK a perfect winter destination for people in Manila. And with a 90 minute flight from Manila, it's definitely my home away from home...happy to be close to family and friends. 90 minute flight vs. 20+ hrs from NYC last year to get to Manila...priceless and price savings!!! =)

Here are some of the foods that we're binging on last Christmas:

Rack of Lamb with Balsamic Reduction

Lawry's Prime Rib

Chocolate Molten Cake
