Default Re: WWF - Save Turtles with Just One Signature

Hi Vivi, Blackie and Cookie,

Thanks for your support of the Save Turtles campaign and sharing your interesting stories. I hope WWF is able to garner the necessary support and signatures within their target period, and let's do our part in helping them raise the awareness!

Well, just 10 minutes ago I thought I was able to declare that I never consumed any turtle eggs or turtles... until I suddenly realized that I had occasionally eaten this popular Chinese herbal dessert "龟苓膏" (Gui Ling Gao), the black-coloured cold paste served with honey in many Chinese restaurants, including the Kung Wo Tong herbal chain in shopping complexes like 1Utama and MidValley.

I was always under the naive impression that it was some Chinese herbal medicine, but upon further research just now, seems like one of the key ingredients is the shell of Platysternon Megalephalum (big-headed turtle) ground to powder form. Although those are not leatherback turtles, I still feel guilty now

Hope I don't get beaten up by the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles...
