>hi jason,

>probably.  konnyaku is not strictly a japanese
product, and these cups of jelly with fruit are sold
in chinese markets, sometimes with a small square of
fruit jelly in the middle.  it's just like fruit
jelly/gelatin in taste and consistency.

Okay, but then Susan B.'s elaboration sounds different (a block of konjac in the center of regular gelatin).  Maybe there are different kinds?

>btw, what's a bushiban?

It is sort of like a specialty school, but not in any way affiliated with the official education system.  Bushibans are commercial businesses.  Many Taiwanese parents desire their children to have additional learing in certain subjects, beyond what the schools provide; bushibans provide this, each one specializing in a particular subject.  I taught in one specializing in the English language -- this kind generally imports teachers from English-speaking countries.  Because they are not affiliated with the school system, they will hire people without teaching certification (such as myself).
