"North Cotabato: Flavors of the road" by Keith Bacongco:

You would know if you are already in Pikit if you hear vendors offer you boiled corn and the town’s most famous delicacy: tinagtag. The latter is a Maguindanaon delicacy made of ground rice and sugar, mixed with little water. The glutinous mixture is poured over a coconut shell drilled with small holes and attached to a wooden stick held with a rope and tied to a pole. This contraption allows the cook to distribute the mixture evenly.
The mixture then drips onto a pan of boiling oil as the cook taps the stick while making a circling motion, forming a round, thin crust with the crisscrossing strips fried until golden brown. It is removed from the pan using a pair of wooden sticks and folded like tacos.

Be careful when you play hide and seek, lest an unexpected player join and follow you home. You will not find him because he is so good at hiding. But he is even better at seeking, and he will always be able to find you.
