Grapefruit Coconut Jelly

I'm assuming. Please, please, can I for once assume? Can't be you are the one always assuming, I must be given my chance as well? Right now, I'm assuming there's two things working on your mind after seeing this Grapefruit Coconut Jelly. Either you are impressed or you are going like, what another almost similar jelly (Dragon Fruit Coconut Jelly & Pandan Coconut Jelly)? Honestly, lemme move to the recipe now. Grapefruit Coconut Jelly is a wow-pow for its tanginess, creaminess, sweetness and soft melting moment in your mouth and mine as well. Bye everyone.

For the  coconut milk (top) Layer
5g seaweed - soaked for 1/2 hour and drained
200ml coconut milk
Sugar as needed
1/2 cup water

For the grapefruit layer
(Note; can replace with oranges too)
15g seaweed - soaked for 1/2 hour and drained
1 cup grapefruit flesh
1/2 tsp grapefruit rind (without the white part)
Sugar as needed

For the grapefruit (bottom) layer
Simmer seaweed with 1/2 cup of water until it dissolves totally.
Remove from heat, strain and leave aside to slightly cool down.
Stir in sugar, grapefruit flesh and rind.
Pour into either, one big mould or a few smaller ones.
Let it harden.

Next; make the coconut (top) layer.
Simmer seaweed with 1/2 cup water to dissolve it.
Remove from heat, strain and leave to slightly cool down.
Stir in sugar and coconut milk.
Pour over the hardened fruit layer,
Cool down totally and chill in the fridge.
