The heat is unbelievably oppressive this afternoon in Manila! For a cool and quick pick me up, just scroll down this post quickly for a virtual halo-halo, wherever you may be…
And check out that red plastic “stirrer” with hands at either end. Heehee. I really liked them and bought a few, thinking we might use them for halo-halo’s served in the restaurant, but they were so expensive that using them isn’t likely. I am curious, what’s your icy weakness at this time of year? Halo-halo? Mais con hielo? Sagu at Gulaman? Fruit smoothie? Iced tea or coffee?
P.S. We made our own preserved langka last week, how-to here. You can also make your own ube jaleya. Or some macapuno preserves/strings. And minatamis na saging. But for the other ingredients, we just bought the bottled stuff. :)
