Kris was talking about endless food. I remember my own Kamayan buffet table experience. We were in the desserts section see? We were an assembly of strangers trying to concoct our own halo-halo from the selection. There was an assortment of beans, sliced sweetened saba, ube, leche flan - the works really! We were all standing there, filling our special glasses to the brim, until the bowl of ice came.

We looked at our glasses, each other's glasses, and finally each other. We smiled. No one left any room for the ice.
