A short notice and my family was at my door. Ahh! you know how you can't refuse or say not to to your family when they come over by giving a short notice. Within time, I managed with the ingredients always stocked up at home.

Usually I'm the person who go out to buy ingredients but on this particular day, I had no choice but to ask my other half to buy a medium size honeydew melon from our regular grocer. Nope; he isn't the best person to do such things yet he was forced to.
Ohhh!! I was glad; the melon was ripe enough to be cubed. And the rest; sago simmered/cooked till translucent,corn syrup (alternatively sugar syrup), and a jug fresh coconut milk; chilled in the fridge and generously poured in the glass to assemble the dessert
1/2 honeydew melon - remove seeds and skin; diced or cubed into pieces.
1 small packet of sago - soaked for 1/2 hour.
Corn syrup/sugar syrup (can also use brown sugar syrup)
Coconut milk or carton milk
Ice cubes (optional)
Simmer sago in a pot of water while stirring. When sago becomes translucent, drain and rinse under running water.
Assemble the dessert by adding melon, sago and corn syrup into a serving glass or bowl.
Pour chilled milk over and serve.
Optional; drop in a few ice cubes.
