How to you eat Serunding kelapa | Coconut Floss?

In here, I cooked my serunding kelapa, a little bit on the moist side. 
My intention was to make this serunding kelapa as a filling to my sweet potato dumplings, known as cucur badak or Pulut Udang.

But if I were to serve with steamed glutinous rice, I would cook this serunding kelapa a little bit longer to make it drier a little.
