Ever since the dry season started in the Philippines, Filipinos have been doing their best to beat the heat by eating ice cream, going to the beach, or eating halo-halo (a popular Filipino cold dessert).
And, one remarkable Filipino culture during summer is selling homemade ice that costs 3 to 5 pesos each with an “Ice for sale” signage hanging outside the seller’s house. In fact, Facebook user Chelsea Young shared online her family’s “quarantine business” in a humorous way.
According to Young, they offer different kinds of homemade ice, which are guaranteed safe and refreshing. Many online users found her post amusing—and it instantly gained more than 32,000 shares, 19,000 reactions, and 200 comments, as of this writing.
The caption reads: ” Online Business this Quarantine ❤️💯 HOMEMADE ICE, BUY NOW!!!! Siguradong safe at refreshing ❄️ Comment lng sa pic ng “mine” for reservations (It’s guaranteed safe and refreshing. Simply comment “mine” for reservations)”.
Here are some of the homemade ice for sale:
Apparently, this one’s the best seller yet.
Ice mukbang? Sounds perfect for the ASMR ice eating challenge.
Don’t get confused with the “Watery Ice”.
This isn’t art but it looks “abstract and unique”, right?
I’ll probably choose the one “with baso” (glass).
They say “twins are lucky”. Does this count?
Here’s how do they make shaved ice.

Young jokingly planned to open a franchise of their business in various malls once we have flattened the curve.
