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.

Signs on the wall:

“Palihog dili tanggalon ang hikot sa banko”

Monobloc chairs tied to the table — new normal way of preventing the old normal way of getting chairs from other tables for group dining.
