Honeydew Sago Dessert

They say: "when life gives you lemons, make lemonade". Mmmm!!! I'll take that with a pinch of salt because you still have to buy lemon before making the drink. Likewise, even if life doesn't give you honeydew melon, you can still buy and make this dessert.  Easily assembled and certainly a fit perfect dessert for the heat wave which can be extremely killing. Also made earlier and chilled before serving especially when you have guest coming over.

My family on the other hand like to catch me off-guard. When I feel like lazing around, they insist on coming over. Impossible to tell mum that I don't feel like welcoming the family for at once she will flip upside down. So as an obedient daughter, I said okay. But a big rush in the kitchen trying to prepare a meal. Thank god I had all the ingredients to make Fried rice which I know they will be happy with.
Of course kids these days will flip too if there's no fried chicken. That too was possible with the chicken bought during the weekend.  
For dessert, I made this honeydew melon dessert ( Honeydew Melon Cake). Again all the ingredients were at home except for the melon. I had no choice but to wake up my other half who was sleeping to glory after watching football till late night. He grumbled yet he too didn't want mum to flip. Won't be a nice scene when mum is unhappy. Food was ready, the family happily eat and I think mum was equally impressed.
Ingredients (estimates)
1/2 honeydew melon - remove seeds and skin, dice or cube into pieces.
1 small packet of sago - soak for 1/2 hour and rinse under running water.

Ice cubes (optional)

Simmer a pot of water till boiling point.

Drain and rinse under running water.
Assemble with melon and corn/sugar syrup in a bowl or tall glass. .
Pour milk and serve either at room temperature with ice cubes.
