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.

Mommy Ling May 12, 2010 at 3:37 PM  

ai..i also buy this brand..hehhe. add longan, havent try before.

smallkucing May 12, 2010 at 3:59 PM  


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"

smallkucing May 12, 2010 at 4:01 PM  


Like that you better not add longan. If ot mistaken longan will make the cough worse.

Home made much cheaper.

mNhL May 12, 2010 at 4:01 PM  

LOL..u scare Uncle Hock.

I don't really fancy GLG because a bit bitter. But really effective to cure sore throat?

smallkucing May 12, 2010 at 4:02 PM

Mamarazzi not farnee ah..she is weird only mah..Uncle Hock was the farnee one. Go and googled up that "monster".

cheeyee May 12, 2010 at 8:16 PM  

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?

smallkucing May 12, 2010 at 8:37 PM  

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.

ChloeRuoyi May 12, 2010 at 9:20 PM  

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 :)

cleffairy May 12, 2010 at 9:41 PM  

Auntie clef very stupid wan last time. Tot they boil the whole turtle to make the jellies. LOL...

reanaclaire May 12, 2010 at 9:53 PM

Oohh I love guilinggao!!! Didn't know it's so cheap to make on our own eh.. those shops outside are selling for so much more!

smallkucing May 12, 2010 at 11:52 PM  

Lenglui Witch

Yup, shop ones are much more expensive.

Merryn May 13, 2010 at 12:01 AM  

eh.. i dunno wat is this... i only know the longan...

A Full-Timed Housefly May 13, 2010 at 12:17 AM  

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

2ma May 13, 2010 at 8:29 AM  

wow, instant jelly! i don't eat it *hehe*

Annie Q May 13, 2010 at 3:48 PM

Irene May 13, 2010 at 4:46 PM

Alice Phua May 13, 2010 at 5:14 PM  

One day, I must try making it myself. Only thing is have to find the time to do it.

smallkucing May 13, 2010 at 7:42 PM

smallkucing May 13, 2010 at 7:43 PM  


you also make this often ya? Nice to eat but some dont like the bitter taste

smallkucing May 13, 2010 at 7:43 PM  


Coz of the bitter taste is it?

smallkucing May 13, 2010 at 7:44 PM  


I used to buy Can type too . Thought the powder hard to make into jelly. But after SIL taught me then baru know quite easy

smallkucing May 13, 2010 at 7:45 PM  


mau tak?

smallkucing May 13, 2010 at 7:46 PM  


J loves it despite the bitter taste. Maybe Juan Or will too

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy May 15, 2010 at 2:45 AM  

I did not know there is a powder form of guilingkow and we can make it ourself.
But, I am not a big fan of it coz it has bitter taste. Joshua loves it?

smallkucing May 15, 2010 at 9:10 AM  


Yes, Joshua loves it :D

My Little Space May 16, 2010 at 2:52 PM  

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!
Cheers, Kristy

smallkucing May 16, 2010 at 6:03 PM
