beat the heat: halo-halo

On Black Saturday, after we had our pilgrimage to the National Shrine of the Divine Mercy in Marilao, Bulacan, we gave in to the craving for something really cold. NLEX is clear, fairly a few cars running to Manila so the trip was quite fast and easy. But the sun was scorching hot and glaring that we can't look outside our tinted windows without sunglasses. 

Great time for Halo-Halo (a Filipino delicacy made of a mixture of sweetened fruits, beans and jelly with crushed ice and milk, topped with ube and leche flan.) My mouth begins to water again as I typed that away. Hahaha! Going back to my story, one of my siblings, am just not sure now who, remembered a small carinderia in Tondo which serves the best halo-halo we've ever tasted. One problem: we do not know where that can be found exactly. So, called our cousins who brought us there some time ago and agreed to meet with them. 

To make the long story short, we had our servings of the delicious halo-halo and here are some of the pictures we took. :) 

This is where you find the Halo-halo haven!

Look for this signage! She makes the best halo-halo there is!

..and it's only Php 25.00!

 I'm not sure if she's Aling Consuelo (which I doubt) but she will surely serve you your halo-halo!

Here it is! (sorry, it's blurred)

see? they're loving it! :) (my sister and she, one of the three cousins we phoned)

Cha-cha is loving it too!

*Slurp! ;p
