Halo Halo



每次到外地開會,當地的同事或客人都會請食晚飯,禮貌上算是招待,若做不成生意,也許算是一種補償。其實我一向並不太喜歡和客戶吃飯,本身並不愛應酬,也是我做不成sales的最大原因。
飯後回酒店,一直心思思這邊的dessert,最後十一點幾仍然是忍不住,跑到大堂點了一杯Halo Halo.
菲律賓的半島酒店數年前住過數次,但最近兩年都沒有到這邊公幹,舊地重遊,附近的地方還有點印像。酒店的大堂仍然很有氣派,但這裏房間只是一般,不過比起以前,似乎又翻新了。半島的名氣雖然大,但在discount後,房間的價錢只是千幾蚊港紙左右,還包早餐和internet,算是物有所值,所以並不是我間公司特別富貴。
前兩年菲律賓的叛軍在馬尼拉作亂,入侵了半島酒店,跟政府對持,最後好像軍方要出動坦克車,攻入酒店的大堂,把叛軍制服。當時看到電視的情景,是自己住過的酒店,不禁嚇了一驚。現在事過境遷,市面又好像回顧正常了,不過我想半島應該要重新裝修一翻吧。
Halo Halo 是一種菲律賓的甜品,是刨冰之類的食物,加上椰奶、雪糕、水果、還有椰絲和五顏六色的甜豆等等。圖片紫色的是芋頭雪糕、黃色的不是牛油,而是蛋tart之類的糕點。在高達37度的炎炎天氣中,吃一杯冰涼的dessert,真是說不出的痛快。
(當然,吃下這杯甜品後,明早跑步大半個鐘應該少不了…)
雖然假期還未完結便要出差,但坐在大堂的一角,一邊聽著音樂,一邊打blog,還有一大杯甜品,感覺上沒有什麼好抱怨了。

還記得住在香港時兼在中環打滾之時,看過環球大廈那些賣菲律賓貨品的店舖貼有"Halo Halo"大字告示,一直以為是賣電話咭廣告!?原來其實是飲品 :D

經過這麼多年的誤解,終於現在才知"Halo Halo"的真正身分!亦很明顯知道我從没到過菲律賓呢..呵呵!多謝分享!

ps:很久以前我也認識一位Xavier,不過已經没有再聯絡,當時的他是做音樂創作的 :)

Hi ber,

我唔系做音樂,所以應該唔識你,but thanks for your visit. 呢類的甜品我覺得東南亞地區做得比較好,系香港食好似唔系太原汁原味:)

很久以前,講緊差不多廿年前,有一隻菲律賓ube雪糕進軍香港,味道好到不得了,宣傳時有個乜乜比賽,勝出者可以免費遊菲律賓的菠蘿雞(唔記得原名)。

灣仔天橋落電腦廣場(三聯對面)以前有一家菲律賓雪糕店,現在可能已經關門大吉了。

看完你寫halo halo,馬上弄了一個來吃。正﹗

哇, 你真系快手... :)

至於灣仔你講個地方,而家連三聯都執埋,你講間雪糕店應該凶多吉少.

吓?灣仔軒尼詩道三聯執咗???搬咗去莊士頓道啩?我之前仲見到喎。

我應該高興定難過呢?
