The place is composed of two barrios, Salapasap and Bugnay. Two barrios adjacent to one another but later on Bugnay became a sitio of Salapasap. It is located northwest of the town along the seashore three kilometers away from the town. If one follows the path by the river through the rice fields, one can reach the place. One can also reach Bugnay, Salapasap via Bungro road taking the national highway going to the north which is merely a kilometer away from the town proper.
soil here was loamy and sandy, even
the rice fields within the area. When
it rains, the soil can hold the water
for a short time for it absorbed easily.
And then the ground became dry again.
Because of this kind of condition, people
most often commented - Agpasalapasap
lang ti danum uray no agpaut ti tudo.
With this observation, they decided
to call the place Salapasap. Bugnay
has its own legend too. The place can
be traced upon the story. One day, two
across a thick woodland, they saw some
trees bearing fruits. Each one of them
tasted the fruits and seemed to like
it. They gathered all the ripe fruits
and brought home which they gave to
their children and shared to their neighbours.
They learned later that the trees bearing
those fruits were bugnay. When the place
was cleared, people began to settle
in that area, and decided to call the
place Bugnay. A certain type of seaweed
was also known as bugbugnay. The seaweed
was very similar to the fruit of bugnay
tree. It is a belief to the people that
the name of the seaweed as bugbugnay
