TRIVIA.According to Ate Elena, Barangay Kagawad in Cantiasay- our ever accommodating host, the name of their Barangay was derived from the name of her grandmother- “Asay” plus the words “Tiya” a local dialect similarly/closely means “Impo” that is pronounced before the first name or nickname as sign of respect and "Kang" which mean "Kay" in Tagalog or To in English. Tiya Asay is the only traditional doctor or albularyo during early times servicing locals of the two island Barangays. If there are people looking for traditional doctor or albularyo they will just say "Kang Tiya Asay" or Kay Tiya Asay in Tagalog. The construction of the said wooden bridge started in 1979 and presently maintained and had budget allotment from City government for maintenance.
Other Notes.There is no electric company or cooperative servicing the area but the locals are hopeful that the planned electrification project in their area by electric cooperative from Dinagat Province will turn into reality next year. They only have 1 mega-powered generator which is open from 6:00pm to 10:00 pm – time for watching news and teleserye’s hehehe. Anyway don’t worry you don’t need to use E-fans/aircon, nature’s cool sea breeze will pamper you while staying in the island.
I would like to express my warmest Thank You! to the Barangay Officials of Bo. Cantiasay special mention to Kagawad Elena, Sir Richard Nick Amores of Surigao City Tourism Council and also to Mt. Baragabon Resorts and Hotel plus Museum- SOON. I am going to explain why on the PART II of this One whole day Surigao City Tour:)
