Slow life

Don’t be misled by the seemingly boring life of this country snail. This snail’s life is anything but boring — seen here feasting on lemongrass.

Lemongrass is an exciting ‘spice’ that adds zest to local culinary dishes from ‘ginataan’ (cooked in coconut milk) to lechong manok (roasted chicken).

The stalks and young leaves of lemongrass can be made into a refreshing drink. The drink is a refrigerant. It makes you feel cool literally.
