I was eating mais con hielo awhile when i was reminded by what my friend told me that Halo Halo costs around Php1000 in Japan. Could this be true? They say that it's a big hit in Japan.

HHHHHHWWWWHAAAAT?! If that is true, now that's really swindling for me. I can't wait to see the reaction of a Japanese Halo-halo lover upon seeing that it's barely one hundred pesos in Chowking. You like Chowking? Or the ones that are sold inside market places, or across public schools, etc.

Hehe, Chowking's Halo Halo's price will soon be compared to diamonds. It's freaking expensive! I like it though hehe.. Inside market places is ok but it comes with free Hepatitis B.

Just a piece of information, Chow King's got a reputation for being unhygienic.

What?? 1000 pesos for a halo2x? No way! It's kinda expensive there. I don't know if it's true or not because it's really expensive for a halo2x.

Mais con Hiejo is spanish for Corn and Ice or something like that. It's usually mixed with milk and sugar. Halo-Halo on the other hand is mixed fruit with some ice cream and custard on milk and ice.

That sounds really good. But right now it is to cold for ice cream. Have a good day and stay warm as I'm cold. Your friend onlydia

yeah..I love halo halo and have not found it in my place. Our malaysian version of halo halo is called ABC and it tasted similar to your halo halo minus the yam and jackfruits. I think if anyone were to start it here it will be a hit too. Anything that is unique will bring profit.

ABC is a cool name for a food! Exactly i agree with you! Anything that's unique will catch everybody's attention therefore that will initiate them to try it.

I dont know but will ask my friend there..may be its 1000 yen not 1000 pesos..or there might be a possibility depending on the contents of the "Halo-Halo"...
