This is melon sago. Not only was it deliciously sweet and refreshing - like a coconutty bowl of mellony fun - it was also very pretty.
My cousin has just informed me that she tried to replicate this but without success. So, sometime in the hopefully-not-too-distant-future, we've agreed to attempt a replication. It was really hard to find a recipe for this - took me a good ten minutes of Googling, so I'm going to place it right here, safe and sound. And will try very, very hard not to attempt a re-make before my cousin-ly reunion!
Looks delicious hey? I found the recipe here.
To be continued.
