which means Crab in hiligaynon (language often referred to as ilonggo, are a subgroup of the Visayan people whose primary language is hiligaynon ).
When we went to Isla de Gigantes, Carles Iloilo, an island in northernmost part of iloilo province. We tried there “kasag”. The only ingredient that was put in was water and a lil’ bit of salt because of course the crab is salty. It was delicious and “tambok” (fat) delicious!
Crabs are generally covered with a thick exoskeleton, composed primarily of calcium carbonate, and armed with a single pair of chelae (claws). Crabs are found in all of the world’s oceans, while many crabs live in fresh water and on land, particularly in tropical regions. Crabs vary in size from the pea crab, a few millimetres wide, to the Japanese spider crab, with a leg span of up to 4 metres (13 ft). -wiki
One thing I will remember when I heard a word Dumaguete is “budbud” a gelatinous rice cake wrapped in banana leaves and it comes with hot choco or the cacao. The local delicacy in Dumaguete found at the heart of the city or the central market where I first tried it. But you can have this also in Gabbys Bed and Breakfast where there is a sweet mango in it. The budbud costs just Php 12.00 per pair with tsokolate or hot choco.
I’m a Huge fan of Hayao Miyazaki’s work, and that’s include the Grave of the Fireflies. While watching the film, I saw the candy named “Sakuma Drops”. After that I tried to googled it where I can buy this candy. Then tadaa! I found it at the Saizen-Daiso, located at Robinsons Bacolod 2nd Floor Building.
These are the images of Sakuma Drops at Saizen. It cost me Php 88.00 and it comes in different colors and flavors. When I ate it, I felt I was in the Movie T_T Yum!
