Foraging for Kugita

I greeted this townsman from afar, asking him what he’ll do, to which he answered “manguha ug kugita” (to forage for octopus).

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.
