connotes a dry season.Joined together
to form a single word, Canjulao means a place that is almost always dry.
Barangay Canjulao is composed of nine (9) Puroks.Each Purok has a president who is in charge
of that particular area.
Barangay Canjulao is located under what
used to be a forest.The houses were
located near a brook, which had a small clearing for the people’s daily
use.The source of their drinking water
was far from their homes so they had bamboo brackets, which they used to stock
their water for cooking and drinking.
People from the upper barrios, had to walk
through barangay Canjulao, when going to other places.
On dry season when their stock of water is
limited they refuse to share their water with an accompanying statement in the
Vernacular.“Way tubig kay huwaw”.It became an accompanying statement as they
refuse to share their water with travelers requesting water to satisfy their
thirst.Hence, due to its present name
