Where's the "Bilo" in "Bilo-bilo"?

Bilo-bilo is a dish with sticky rice balls formed from a mixture of glutinous rice flour and water. Coconut milk is added for flavor, along with jackfruit strips and sweet potato cubes.

But the main thing is the rice ball(s) - the bilo-bilo.

This is one of my favorite dishes but I haven't had the chance to eat it for years - maybe around 5 years now! So when I saw it at the Sunday Market in Legazpi, it was a no-brainer.
