Last March 26, 2008 right after the Holy Week, the personnel and staff of the Sts. Peter & Paul had an overnight camping in the island of Canigao in Matalom, Leyte. One good thing with Canigao is that the island is not far from the mainland. It only takes about ten to fifteen minutes by boat in order to reach the island. It has white sand for the beach. Lately, the municipal government of Matalom constructed some cottages on the island. They also have cleared the area of the grasses that is why the beach has become wider.
In the shallow waters we found Nokot, a kind of sea weed which look like green noodles. They would cling to some stones and can be seen only when the waters are calm. It is succulent and it can be eaten raw with just vinegar and soy sauce or it can go with fish tinola or with kinilaw.
