Getting Halo-halo after lights out.

After having spent the whole day drawing, I was up to my neck in need of Halo-halo… or want. It was past 2100, so most of the malls were closed. It’s good that Cebu now has a lot of places that open 24/7. So I dragged my very willing brother along and we went on a hunt for Halo-halo.

My very eager brother.
My very eager brother. He's brimming with enthusiasm.

I’d been eating healthy for the past month. I am not justifying this late night hunt. No. Maybe I was just banking on Muay Thai class the next day; hoping it would burn off all the sugar I was about to consume.

Alright, so if my sweet tooth were a monster, I’ve yet to learn to tame it.

We went to a branch of Mang Inasal near the USP campus but their ice machine was out of order. That was disappointing. We, then, drove off to Kul’s Kitchen in IT Park—only to realize that halo-halo wasn’t on the menu.

Finally, I remembered that there was a MyJoy in the JP Morgan building just across our gym. Ironic, huh? We got in and placed our orders.

Oh, tower of sweets.
Oh, tower of sweets.

The last time I had one of these was back in the academy when I raced another cadet in finishing it. I didn’t remember the taste back then, I only remembered my tongue slipping from being fully functional to numb and frozen.

A burger?! Only a burger?!
A burger?! Only a burger?!

In about five minutes, our orders arrived. Matt only got a burger. A burger?! Only a burger?! I ordered the Halo-halo. It took us less than ten minutes to finish everything. Should there be a next time, I’d advise myself to eat healthier… and I’m prepared with some precautionary steps.

This sweet recipe I found at fachic.org. To make it even less deadly, we can just skip the dairy altogether and eat it with yogurt. I’m sure it will little diminish the gastronomic experience. Though I doubt if this could even be considered a science.

In life... you have to come prepared.

    haven’t tried halo-halo with yogurt yet.

    1. It’s ok po, coach pat! 🙂 —like fruits with yogurt, but the beans give it a more ‘whole’ feel.

  3. Maaaan!

    Yes, Kuya Matt looks very eager and ethusiastic. Very. Now I want to get halo-halo after Muay Thai tomorrow.

    1. that decision is yours to make 🙂

      1. Naaah, won’t be getting any. I’m saving up for my overweight luggage fee. Besides, I just had fish-shaped ice cream. 😀

      2. waiii you have it without me???!!
