Discover this viral “magic water” in Binondo!

On a hot summer day, we Filipinos, usually quench our thirst with sweet cold beverages. From saging con yelo to halo-halo and the traditional sago’t gulaman, we whip up these different types of sweet drinks to help us bear the hot, humid weather. 

We usually find these ice-flavored drinks are being sold by the street vendors close to public transportation and schools. Even on cold days, they bring joy and refreshments to us.

Recently,  this “magic water” of Aling Bebe went viral on social media. It has hooked the attention and sparked the curiosity of many netizens. Aling Bebe aka “Palamig Queen”  has been selling her magic water for more than four decades now in the same spot of Binondo, Maynila. 

What’s so special about this “magic water”? 

What sets apart Aling Bebe’s ‘water magic palamig’ from others is it appears to be colorless, unlike the usual gulaman that comes in different colors. This seemingly translucent water looks like a typical “ice tubig” but it is similar to the classic sago’t gulaman.

On a youtube channel of TIKIM tv featuring Aling Bebe’s viral magic water, she said that she used clear gelatin or gulaman. Moreover, she infuses it with mineral water to ensure that her product is safe to drink. Almost every day, she attracts legions of customers, serving them her refreshing palamig for five or ten pesos.
