I eat Halo-halo!
It is a popular Filipino dessert especially during summer.
It is a mix of different fruits like the banana, jackfruit, young coconut, sweet yam with sugar and milk.
A small slice of leche flan.
And of course the shaved ice.
On top is a scoop or two of ice cream.
We ate lunch today at Chowking in Times Plaza at UN Avenue.
I had the regular halo-halo.
Faye and Zoe ate the milky white halo-halo.
There are many versions of halo-halo all over the country.
In the Ilocos region, we put cantaloupe.
At times we put colored purple glutinous rice.
Others mix sweet corn.
Following are photos of different halo-halo posted at one time by my friends from different places.

The cold effect may not be lasting.
But at least even for a little while you can beat the heat.
With the very delicious halo-halo.
