Story Behind this Recipe

I figured I would make something for the Japanese Doll Festival, and decided to make my favorite agar milk jelly.
But I didn't have red food coloring and I don't like green tea.
When I tried using the strawberry and melon shaved ice syrup sitting in the corner if my fridge.
