The shaved ice man uses a small hand-plane to scrape the ice block,
and pours on the syrup. I chose tamarindo. Tam-gan-eydn-arindo!
I wish I could have made a sound file of the ice-planing process, because a large part of the pleasure of having the shave-ice is hearing the khromtshe, khromtshe, khromtshe of the plane scraping across the ice-block.
The Yiddish word for shave-ice is האָבל-אײַז (hobl-ayz), or plane-ice
