Gimen mås chugo' niyok!  Drink more coconut water!

Only recently have I gone back to consuming anything from a coconut.  For some time I had been swayed by the anti-coconut propaganda that anything remotely connected with the niyok would clog your arteries with cholesterol.  Now I am swayed by the pro-coconut water party.  It is full of all kinds of natural goodness, and hardly anything unhealthy, which you can research at your leisure.

In the Philippines, it is pushed all the time.  You are constantly asked, "Buko juice? Buko juice?"

With a coconut tree every 20 yards on Guam, it's a shame we have to buy chugo' niyok for $4 a can at a store; or $3 a pop from a street vendor - $5 if you come from the Land of the Rising Sun.
