I just found out that there’s really a thing called Talilong. I thought it’s just an invented word for the phrase Hilong Talilong, which means a person in disoriented mode. With a little help from Google, i found out that talilong is the common Tagalog term for the fish called mullet. It is an “edible fish of the family Mugilidae found worldwide in tropical and temperate coastal waters and some freshwater streams”. the scientific name is Liza Macrolepsis. (from this site)
And this plant, according to two reliable drinkmates is also called Talilong or
Talelong Talilung. They say it’s good for sinigang or nilaga. It is also used as pig chow.
