Toadstool-shaped Lato

The toadstool-shaped lato (seaweed) in Cateel tastes even better than the grape-like lato.

Copra

A specialized tool is used to to manually separate the copra from its shell. The meat will then be dried before extracting the coconut oil. How about the shell? It will be made into charcoal known as ‘uling bagol’.

A thick spatula-like tool is inserted between the meat and the shell.

Once inserted, the tool should be moved in a circular manner to separate the meat inch by inch.

Bitoon

Bitoon tree is quite common along seashores and I always mistake it for talisay tree because of its leaves. In Samal Island, I saw people gather several leaves, presumably to be used as folk medicine.

One could also note that not all trees would shed pretty and relatively big flowers with lots of dark pink stamens that you won’t be able to resist in picking them up.
