|Myra Salas (assistant nurse, Singapore)|
December 2010 was the first Christmas she spent away from her family. Thank God she immediately found new friends after moving in Singapore to work as an assistant nurse. They cooked food and exchanged gifts. During New Year's Eve, she and her friends went to the famous Marina Bay and celebrated the welcoming of 2011. It was fun but spending it with her family in their home is way far better. This is her second time to spend the holidays far from home yet Myra said that she's still feeling lonely being away from her family.
