A sweet way to end the love month and to welcome summer is to eat halo-halo (mix-mix? *big grin*)


Halo is the Filipino term for mix and this popular dessert/snack is a mixture of different sweets such as tapioca/sago pearls, gulaman (jellies), purple yam (ube), sweetened kamote (sweet potato), sweetened plantain banana and shredded melon. Well those are what's in the halo-halo that I've got this afternoon. *wink*


Top with shaved ice swirled with evaporated milk... *yummy*


My cousins enjoying Ate Mayeth's Halo-Halo, she usually sells barbeque's but during summer she also have Halo-Halo.


And for a halo-halo all year round... Chowking serves special halo-halo with various boiled sweet beans, sugar palm fruit (kaong), leche flan and rice crisp aside from the usual ingredients. You can also have it topped with ice cream.


Enjoy the summer guys!

a sweet music video...

Just this morning I was able to watch this video on MYX (a music channel) and good thing it is already uploaded on *big grin*. I've seen the making of this music video and I am really looking forward to see the final video... and I am not disappointed! The MV is simple yet I find it very sweet. Watching Sarah Geronimo's eyes glowing while singing makes me also feel the song... I hope you guys love it as much as I do!

Sarah Geronimo widget by 6L & Daxii

Originally sung by Janie Fricke but I first heard this song from the Filipino group called "The Company", and i have come to love it since then.

Minatamis na Saging

Since it is the Love Month... I decided that all my post for this month will be about something sweet... *wink*

Let me start with...

Minatamis na Saging
(Sweetened Bananas)


the ingredients:

10 pcs ripe plantain bananas (saba), sliced
2 cups sugar
4 cups water

here's how:

On a casserole, dissolve sugar in water under medium heat. Bring to boil. Add the sliced banana. Simmer for about 10 minutes until the bananas are tender and the syrup thickens.
(When simmering, stir once in a while so that the bananas will not stick on the bottom of the casserole.)

Simple right? *big smile* Then why not try banana con yelo this summer?

All you need is sweetened banana, crushed ice and evaporated milk.

on as small serving bowl, place about 8 pcs. of sliced sweetedned banana, add crushed ice and drizzle with evaporated milk and sweetened banana syrup.

Now i'm craving for one!!! :P~
