  1. Looks like an awesome recipe.. I’ve got to say that this dessert is not a Palauan dessert but a Filipino dessert… Coming from a local Palauan it is not a commonly consumed dish on the island. Maybe in some Filipino restaurants tho… Pls find accurate info on people’s dishes because I feel like your ignorant on our traditional food culture with your recipes..

  2. Never heard of most of those flavoring ingredients, but this sounds such a cool ethnic drink experience, I think I will try it. Thanks for those links to get the stuff!

  3. Looks so delicious! Wish I had seen this recipe earlier, I bet it would make a great Christmas treat drink – maybe I’ll whip some up for New Years. Hey – would adding a little rum be breaking the rules? lol 😉
