Just wanted to show that my dad and I did in fact make halo halo for dessert before I left the USA.
Here I am pouring in the milk right before eating. We used all the traditional stuff (coconut gel, fruit mix with sweet red bean, shave ice). We didn't have any ube (purple sweet potato) ice cream, though, so rather than use an inferior ice cream, we just did without it.
</a> Dad put an extra slice of jackfruit on top of mine. Aw.
