———————-Alphabetical Order ————————-
( A )
Agong-ong – is a fruit bearing tree grows in the inclined hilly land of Sibale island, its trunk is similar to “bougainvillae“, a thorny and woody flowering plant. Its maximum height is about 6 to 10 feet, having dark green leaves. Its fruit is usually considered to be sweet and fleshy, highly desirable as in plums, a red color when it is ripe; however, though it looks sweet, its fruity taste is like unripe apple. Sibalenhon folks called it “Agong-ong” because once you bite it you will love it to be inside your mouth drawing its sour taste out of the hard outer shell containing the very seed.
Arangha – is a native “lime” of Sibale, a small acid-tasting citrus fruit with a thin green rind and green flesh, usually used its juice as a seasoning to make their native food(s) more delicious especially when they prepare broth called “inaslum” in “Asi” dialect. An “inaslum” is a clear soup made by cooking meat, poultry, fish, seafood, or vegetables in water usually prepared and served during lunch time. Also, “arangha” is a good flavor for “pakasam” or “bago-ong“, an item of food made of salty small fish stocked for a month before it is being served. A “pakasam” or “bago-ong“, flavored with “arangha juice”, is an alternative viand of Sibalenhon during stormy weather. “Arangha” is an ever-green tree that can be cultured or grown at the backyard of their own house.

- Gomon-Gomon – is a wild vine that could be found in Sibale island. It is a wild creeping plant growing and spreading by sending out tendrils and coiled around other plants as supporting. It bears small circle-shaped fruit, a color of green when not yet ripe and yellow when it is ready to eat that contains small black seeds inside. It is a favorite food of birds. Kids of this island like to eat its fruits because of sweet flavor. It is usually found in the rocky terrain of the island.
( T )
Tabungos – is a hand woven container made of stripped materials called “sawali”, a bamboo product in woven strips. Usually, a “Tabungos” is used to hold harvested rice, corns and other agricultural products. It was popular or commonly used by old folks of the Sibale island until late 70’s, to keep their grain and fruit crops before they stored them inside their own house or storage house for a period of time. Tabungos’ size is bigger than a “basket” or “libon”, another kind of Sibalehon’s woven container, used to gather or collect vegetable crops. Tabungos’ shape is spherical, about two meters of height and thirty-six inches diameter of width.
