Historical Background There is a tale about the origin of the name Tigbalabag. A long time ago, the newly-constructed road became very muddy when rain poured. The word "tig" was taken from the word "taliti", the chabacano word for light downpour. Every time there was taliti, the road became muddy and caused vehicles to run in a zigzag, the chabacano equivalent of which is "balabag-balabag". From then on, they named the place Tigbalabag.
