Ibos Moments

Ibos Moments

This is my daughter Kimy eating her favorite breakfast, Ibos. She dips it in kalamay (sugar) to make it more delish. Yumyum!


According to Wikipedia, Ibos (a.k.a. Suman sa Ibos) is an ubiquitous variety of suman, the glutinous rice is washed, and is then mixed with salt and coconut milk. The mixture is poured over pre-made coil containers of young palm leaves called Ibos or Ibus, and fixed with the leaf’s central shaft. This is then steamed using water mixed with “luyang dilaw” (Turmeric) — giving it that distinctly yellow colour — and served with a sugar.
