My first encounter with jellyfish was when we were in Ocean Park, Hongkong. I was amazed the different species there are. During my trip in Zamboanga, in one of the beaches there, I get to see a giant jellyfish in close proximity, the natives of the place were used to seeing this one the shore especially if it is a "big waves" day. and my oh my, they victimized one the children swimming, I presumed it was very painful as the tentacles leaves marks all over the child's body. It was also at that time that i learned that jellyfish are edible. The natives use this as their
"pulutan" during their drinking sessions. Below is the actual picture of the jellyfish.
