halo-halo means mix-mix  
but is used mostly in reference to the famous filipino dessert: ube icecream + kidney beans + jello + cherries + whipped cream + corn + coconut + jackfruit – a sari-sari {a bit of this and a bit of that} store in your mouth. Halo-halo takes the ordinary staples of a daily diet to make something extraordinary.
and that’s what you’ll find here: a wonderful, delicious, sometimes strange mix of the beans, fruit, jello, cherries, corn & nutty encounters of our daily life in the Pilipinas – where the seemingly mundane transforms into the extraordinary.
