Halo – Halo
Halo-Halo is the culmination of a creative research project that investigates a personal conflict of cultural plurality at the conjunction of Filipino ethnicity and Australian nationality. Halo-halo is the name of a popular Filipino dessert typically made of shaved ice, evaporated milk and a mixture of sweetened yams, fruits and legumes. The dessert has no fixed ingredients or culinary techniques involved in its preparation. Therefore it is assembled with any desired toppings immediately before serving. Translated directly, halo-halo means mix-mix. In the context of this research project, the term is used to generalise the process of ‘mixing’ in the exchange between inherited and adopted cultures.
