Turtle Jelly


The other day my Uncle Hock throat was feeling not so good. So Mamarazzi told him to take some Guilinggao. Good for the throat.

Uncle Hock doesn't know what is Guilinggao and Mamarazzi being Banana Chinese, told him the direct translation of Guilinggao..."Turtle Jelly".

Guess what happen when he googled "turtle jelly" using Google Image.


One of the image from google search.




Poor guy. He had a scare. He thought Mamarazzi meant that.



What Mamarazzi actually mean was this. One box cost around RM3, have 10 sachets of Guilinggao.


Pour the powder into a bowl. Add cold water and kacau till smooth and not lumpy



Pour into boiling water. Keep stirring while it boil for awhile.

Mamarazzi decided to add some longan.


The syrup pour into the boiling Guilinggao while the longan put into small bowls



Bowls of Guillinggao ready to be put into the fridge and eaten later.

    Chinese Medicine Hall, pasar / pasar mlm(from herbal man) or if you are at The Gardens/ 1Utama ..can get from the big Chinese Medicine shop there. If not mistaken, the name of the shop is "Effective Herbs"

  26. Ooh I like to eat GLG. Didn't know such simple to make only. Must go buy some to try. If I'm heaty I normally either take the cincao or watermelon juice. Btw, will GLG be too cooling for the kids?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Chee Yee

    I think wont be too cooling for kids gua. Just eat a bit only. Not like eat a few bowls. Some more these packets one, i think maybe dun even have "turtle" . Maybe they replace it with sine "leong" ingredients.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Haha! I think a more accurate translation should be "turtle cartilage jelly".

    My mum always gets me this too, I think same brand. Really easy to make. I usually eat with honey :)

    Oh this is so funny... the turtle jelly and the image. I can't agree more 龟苓膏 is really effective cure for a bad sored throat... we have them quite frequently even we don't have any sored throats

  47. Guilingao! I wanted to give this a try someday. My aunt uses a slow cooker on this. No need to stir so often! Guilingao is also very good for this kind heaty weather!
    Have a great weekend, dear!
