|Preggy me and Juanito beside the city plaza of our adoptive hometown of San Pedro Tunasán, La Laguna during this year's Palm Sunday. There is an unnamed stall here which serves delectable halo-halo.|
Here in our country, you will see halo-halo stands in almost every corner of the street during summer as we Filipinos enjoy its cold, sweet, and milky taste which gives us comfort from the sweltering heat of the sun, satisfying and completing our summer experience.
And take note of the price: it's inexpensive. And it's up to you if you want to indulge on a much costly version (those that come from expensive restaurants). Some sell it for only ten pesos or anywhere near that price, But whatever the price is, we still order it because of the hot weather and of course to try and experience the delectable taste it offers.
|At Lucy's Central Restaurant in Biñán, La Laguna during this year's Black Saturday. You can ask for extra shaved ice here for your halo-halo.|
Wherever you buy it anywhere in the country, it is always halo-halo that you call it. Usually, its delicious selection of ingredients are banana, camote, beans, and corn (those that are cooked in a very sweet way). Optional ingredients are nata de coco, caong, sago, gelatin, and pinipig. And some even prefer their halo-halo to have fruits such as melon or langca. Then there's sugar and evaporated milk to taste, and of course crushed ice. And it's usually topped with original Filipino favorites such as leche flan, ice cream of any flavor, ube, or macapuno. Voilà, you have your summer halo-halo!!! :)

Check out our summer photos enjoying delicious halo-halo from various stores!
|At Dekada during Momay's 10th birthday. Instead of the usual tall glass, all the ingredients of Dekada's halo-halo are placed inside a coconut shell still with the meat inside!|
Enjoy the few remaining days of summer and halo-halo, everyone!!! :)
