One Frog Of A Drink

A nostalgic beverage worth croaking for !

In my school boy days, we often patronized road-side ice-water vendors and one of the favorite drinks was a red-colored water which had many small “things” inside. We did not know what these were –  but everyone called the beverage “frog-egg water”.

It has been many years, in fact decades, since I had a sip. It was only a week ago that I came to know the little round things are basil seeds. (I have been eating basil leaves for many years, but knew nothing about its seeds).

But why aren’t people selling this kind of drinks anymore?

OK, I think I should be hopping around supermarkets to see if I can get a bottle. Jom! Hop along with me.
