Life in the far reaching mountainous areas of Iloilo is hard. Transportation is not widely accessible and people live a simple life. Due to poverty and scarce sources of food, as in older days, people eat bats to survive. Fruit bats are considered a delicacy. Poi bat and adobong paniki, deep fried bat with soy sauce, is a thrilling comestible for exotic food lovers.
