Coconut Jelly

The weather recently has been crazy; it shines and then it rains and then it becomes so unbearably humid.
No wonder it is a breeding season for all those viruses and dengue/'chi-ku-nya' fevers, etc.

Even yourself truly has recently recovered from the horrendous virus of sore throat, fever, nausea, flu and cough...UGH!
I am still shuddering whenever I go near those people who are currently coughing like a hatter on the road.

Anyway, for something soothing and cooling (in case you happen to feel a case of dry throat), you might want to try out some coconut drinks or for a new little flavour - the coconut jelly.

It is sold at one of the shops along Jalan Datuk Keramat and costs RM3.70 per coconut.
Pretty pricey in my opinion; but I only see this here though.
The first time I tried it was in Jitra (Kedah) and it was an enticing taste which I remembered despite my intolerance for coconut-based products.
This was a little diluted but still refreshing to the throat.

They made the jelly rather gel-o-like and you feel hooked on for a few more spoonfuls after the first few tastes.

What better way to enjoy the hot afternoon, keeping yourself hydrated and enjoying it with a little taste?


  1. How yummy. I read somewhere that young coconut juice is THE perfect rehydration drink, better than all those sports drinks etc. I love it, it's refreshing and tastes wonderful.
    Hope you feel better soon :)

  2. Coconut is wonderful for a hot day, esp. those Thai pandan variety and with jelly to boot will satisfy anyone.

  3. I've been wanted to try this after reading CK's review. But still pending. :(

  4. was the weather in Pg very crazy?? but then down in KL was cooling....
