HISTORY

Cabuyao used to be named Tabuko, but this was misinterpreted by the Spaniards as Kabuyaw (named after a tree).
After the colonization of Manila by Miguel López de Legazpi in 1570, he instructed Capt. Juan de Salcedo to conquer all barangays around the lake of Ba-i, which is now called Laguna de Bay. Just like the settlement of Ba-i, Tabuko had large plain area and rich forestry and the climate was suited to farm crops. On January 16, 1571, it was announced by López de Legazpi that Tabuko be considered as encomienda or a town under Gaspar Ramirez.
The town of Tabuko was located near the corner of a river and the lake of Ba-i which was made bancas or raft as the common means of transportation going to the town of Tabuko. There were many trees of kabuyaw growing around the area. The fruit of kabuyaw was used as shampoo. So, when the priest asked for the name of the place, the native females readily answered “kabuyaw”, thinking that the priest was asking for the name of the trees growing around the wharf. From then on, the priests and other Spanish officials called the town of Tabuko as Kabuyaw.

Cabuyao is politically subdivided into 18 barangays.

    Magandang araw! Nais ko sanang iparating ang aking hinaing ukol sa mabigat na daloy ng traffic sa Pulo-Diezmo road na dulot ng lubak na kalsada. Sana po ay mabigyang pansin ito at masolusyunan. Malaking abala po ito sa mga mag-aaaral at naghahanap-buhay. Balewala po ang paglalagay ng mga traffic enforcer. Salamat po.
