Fruit Macaroni Salad, Filipino Style

I made for the first time my own version of the Filipino Style Macaroni Salad. This has been one of the favorite desserts among Filipinos. It is sweet and different from the traditional American Macaroni Salad. My friends had tried it and they loved it! You may use more fruit cocktail or add some more pineapple and sweet mandarins. Everything is in cans so it is easy to gather and prepare. Below is my recipe. Feel free to add anything you like for ingredients. I did add more mayonnaise. Also, if you want chicken in your macaroni salad, just add cooked shredded chicken meat and more mayonnaise. You may add a bit of salt and pepper to satisfy your taste. Keep tasting and don't worry if it won't turn out good. Just keep adding the ingredients that you think is lacking. Keep experimenting ;)
You need:
1 pack short Macaroni pasta (16 oz), cooked according to package
1 jar mayonnaise (30 oz)
1 jar miracle whip (30 oz)
3 cans small Fruit cocktail or 1 big can (I used 1 big and 1 small can), drained
1 can Mandarin oranges, drained
1 can pineapple slices, drained
1 package raisins (6 small packs in 1 package)
1 can condensed milk
3 cans cream
cheese, cubed
carrots, cubed (optional)
In a large bowl, mix all ingredients. Chill before serving. Enjoy!
