successful battle

. For instance, barrio Malagasang got its name from the fact that its numerous feuds with neighboring barangays it rarely suffered any loss of human life - "di malagasan" in Tagalog. Barrio Bucandala, on the other hand, is descriptive of its configuration i.e., looking like an open fish net (bukang dala). The historic barrio of Alapan, where the first successful battle of the second phase of the Revolution took place on May 28, 1898, derived its name from an incident involving a Spanish officer, who being there for the first time, inquired about the name of the place where the people were busy sorting out, looking for something from a huge pile of farm implements. Thinking that he was asking what they were doing, one of the natives replied, "Hanapan po ng kasangkapan" (We are looking for farm implements). Though the story is not quite plausible, one can take it or leave it! Legend has it that in barrio Anabu there lived a Chinese man who fell head over heels in love with a local lass. The maiden did not reciprocate his affection, however, and one day the girl eloped with her local lover. Learning about it, the Chinese man broke down. He ran about the village crying loudly, "Ana bo! Ana bo!" (Ana is gone! Ana is gone!) Not long after the Chinese man died, and to perpetuate the memory of the incident the place was called "Ana-bo", which eventually evolved into Anabu. The barrio of Karsadang Bago (meaning new road) lies along a newly built road linking barrio Tinabunan (covered) to the poblacion of Imus. Likewise, the barrio of Bayang Luma (old town) is descriptive of its name. The barrio of Medicion was named after two sisters, Medy and Sion, whose untimely death left their disconsolate mother crying, "Medy! Sion! Medy! Sion!" The name of barrio Toclong, so goes another legend, was mimicking of the dull, hollow sound of the first church bell heard in that place, "To clong! To clong!" Demographics
