Yes, I am wanting to know what ice jelly is also.

From this page.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aiyu_jelly

Aiyu jelly (愛玉冰; pinyin: àiyù bīng; or 愛玉凍, pinyin: àiyù dòng; or simply 愛玉, pinyin: àiyù; Min Nan: Pe̍h-ōe-jī: ò-giô, from Spanish higo), known as ice jelly in Singapore (文頭雪; pinyin: wéntóu xǔe), is a jelly made from the gel from the seeds of a variety of fig (Ficus pumila var. awkeotsang) found in Taiwan and East Asian countries of the same climates and latitudes.[1] The jelly is not commonly made or found outside of Taiwan and Singapore, though it can be bought fresh in specialty stores in Japan and canned in Chinatowns. It is known as ò-giô in Taiwanese and is used in Taiwanese cuisine.

According to oral history, the plant and the jelly were named after the daughter of a Taiwanese tea businessman in the 1800s. The jelling property of the seeds was discovered by the businessman as he drank from a river in Chiayi. He found a clear yellowish jelly in the water he was drinking and was refreshed upon trying it.

Brave man.

Looking above the river he noticed fruits on hanging vines. The fruits contained seeds that exuded a sticky gel when rubbed.


The day I stop learning will be the day I die. Maybe.

You wish jelly fish :)
Stan, you're holding a gun to God's head. I can't think of a metaphor that's better than this.

I will leave the tropics this Friday, to return to my home town for my brothers wedding. It will be very cold for me
