As a Cebu native, I find it intriguing that Malapascua translates to “Bad Christmas” in Cebuano (Bisaya). The story goes that this name was bestowed upon the island by a Spanish explorer who landed there on a stormy Christmas Day during the 1500s. I didn’t know about this historical connection until I started researching for this blog.
