The Origin of the name “Oslob”

According to the narrative, a group of Spaniards seen a native couple who were eating boiled bananas under a tree near the shore. The natives dipped (“tuslob”) their bananas in a bowl filled with salt. The Spaniards asked them “What is the name of this place?” the couple answered, “Tuslob!” thinking the Spaniards were asking what they’re doing to the banana. The Spaniards mistook the answer and named the town as “Tuslob,” which, in the passage of time became “Oslob.”
