    "Belekoy is a sweet delicacy that is said to have originated from Bulacan, it is made of flour, sugar, vanilla, and covered with sesame seeds. i love eating this when i was a kid and even now its just that i am having a hard time finding belekoy anywahere these days, thats why i buy tons when i see it at pasalubong stores. belekoy is makunat or it feels like your eating nougat but it is gummier. thats why we have this phrase makunat ka pa sa belekoy for a person who is a tightwad or stingy."

Calamansi - When I found these at a local supermarket, I rushed home immediately and made myself a glass of calamansi juice with ice, just like the way it’s served back home in Malaysia.
