I have a confession to make.
This may disappoint most of you but Tina and I are not fond of going to the beach during Summer. We prefer to soak under cold shower (together? that’s another story that does not deserve a blog post! LOL!) rather than bathe and immerse on water under the scorching heat of Philippine Sun.
Other than budget consideration during peak season, we enjoy sand, water and what beauty that nature has to offer when it’s not thickly populated. As you may know, my family’s recent beach adventure was last week of October 2009 when BORACAY was in its quiescence…
Tranquility echoed every morning during our days in the island…
Ah, Boracay! When do we get to enjoy your crystal turquoise water and powdery sand again ? It’s not only the beach that’s glorious in this island but digestive feasts too. Summer heat reminds me of spoonful cold treats we had from Boracay’s HALOWICH.
And since we’re not hitting the beach anytime soon, you may now have a clue of how we define SUMMER in our own way…
Yesterday, Tina, Gabby and I went to Iceberg in their Timog Ave. branch to have bowls of Halo-Halo.
What’s a Summer in Manila without it?
For only PhP 98, I enjoyed macapuno balls, slice of peach, sweet plantain, corn kernels, corn flakes, jackfruit strips, ube jam, gulaman on shaved ice topped with ube and strawberry-flavored ice cream!
While Tina and Gabby chose to savor Caramel Flan with Mangoes and Vanilla Ice Cream. Yum!
Summer for us, is a great excuse to devour on these cold gastronomic pleasures.
What’s your favorite food fit for Summer?
How are you spending your Summer? I bet most of you are busy treading on most shores of this archipelago.
