It is summer once again here in the Philippines, and the sun is really bringing up the heat. I wanted to go out with my kids but the heat just kept from strolling in the park. But summer also brings up good things....like Halo-Halo. This is a special dessert where several sweetened goodies (beans, coconut gel, sweet potato, banana, ube, buko strips, leche flan, jackfruit) are combined in a big glass, topped with crushed ice and milk. Delicious. So how do you beat the summer heat?

Halo-halo is delicious especially during the summer heat. We also have saba con hielo (sweetened banana with ice) or mais con hielo (corn kernel with ice).

I just do my best to enjoy, though it is really scorching hot in here!;) Me and my friends are planning to go to the beach and relax, but I think it will only be a day or two of fun and enjoyment. I also wished that we have a mini-pool here to ease and lessen out the heat, but I have to adjust to cope up with the weather. I take a bath twice a day know, during 10 in the morning and during afternoons. Cold drinks and refreshments are also good for our body, I drink iced tea and fresh fruit juices that I love to prepare in our blender!;)

i like to go swimming with friends. if that's not possible, a trip to the mall would be okay. you can shop and watch a movie or just chill and talk with your friends. i love summer! you can just go out and have fun!

It is still not very warm where I live as we still have snow everywhere's . But in the summer I like to go out with the children to get ice cream when it is really hot . Either a sunday or a banana split or just something that is cool to make you feel better when trying to deal with the heat , although I don't believe that our heat is anything compared to the Philippines as in teh summer our hottest point might reach 120 but is usually between 70 and 90 degrees .
