Midsalip is what can be described as an interior municipality that is located just slightly on the eastern part of Zamboanga del Sur. It is some 21.8 kilometers inland from the national highway and about 46 kilometers away from the capital of the province, Pagadian City. According to the 2000 census, Midsalip has a population of 28,909, with a household figure of 5,479. Geographically, it is located 8 degrees, 10’1″ north and 123 degrees, 16’10” east. Midsalip is classified as a 4th class municipality.

Before it became a municipality, Midsalip was a settlement that was under the then-municipality of Pagadian. Eventually, it was later passed on to the municipality of Aurora, and finally became a part of the jurisdiction of Molave. It was also a barangay of the municipality of Liargao, now known as Ramon Magsaysay.

The earliest settlers of Midsalip were originally the Subanens led by Datu Lumbos Guilingan, who chose to settle at a certain barrio under Labangan. These settlers eventually settled and formed a barangay and named it “Migsalip”, after the big river which is near the settlement they erected. This river accumulates all the waters flowing from the different small rivers and creeks in the area, such as the Talipunan River, the Guma River, and the Bakahan River. The word “Migsalip” itself is a Subanen term which means “to collect” or “accumulate”.

Eventually, other settlers also came to the area, mainly the Christians and other Subanen tribes, after hearing that Migsalip was a flourishing place for livelihood. The Christians in particular found the pronunciation of “Migsalip” hard, and thus changed it to “Midsalip”, hence giving the municipality its present name.

Midsalip was finally made into a municipality on September 9, 1964, by virtue of Executive Order No. 94. This didn’t last long, however, as it as dissolved on February 26, 1966 due to a Supreme Court decision regarding the legality of the funds disbursed by the municipal treasurer. As a result, Midsalip was reverted back to barrio status. It wasn’t until May 8, 1967, when the Republic Act No. 4871 was passed when Midsalip became a regular municipality again.

    Im an adventurer person and travelled to almost places in this country. I was amazed of the different cultures in mindanao. I am from manila but unfornately it was my destiny to marry and found my true love from midsalip zds. The place is so cool, friendly people, simple living and away from polluted air. Hoping that the trees plants mountains be preserved or be taking cared by the people itself.

    Isang napakagandang lugar ang Midsalip. Mayaman sa mga likas na yaman. Nakapunta ako sa lugar na ito dahil sa pagsasagawa ko ng pag-aaral sa wikang Subanen. Ito’y bilang pagtupad sa pangangailangan sa aking kurso. Masayahin ang mga tao at kuntento sa kanilang buhay.

Enjoy the remaining portion of the year. You are performing a powerful job.Thanks for the strategies you have shared here. On top of that, I believe there are many factors which really keep your motor insurance premium down. One is, to consider buying autos that are within the good list of car insurance organizations. Cars which might be expensive will be more at risk of being robbed. Aside from that insurance coverage is also in line with the value of your car, so the more pricey it is, then the higher this premium you have to pay.

    One more thing. In my opinion that there are quite a few travel insurance sites of respected companies that permit you to enter a trip details and get you the rates. You can also purchase the international travel insurance policy on the internet by using your own credit card. All you should do would be to enter your current travel specifics and you can start to see the plans side-by-side. You only need to find the plan that suits your financial budget and needs after which use your credit card to buy the item. Travel insurance on the internet is a good way to check for a respected company regarding international travel cover. Thanks for revealing your ideas.

    Thanks for the suggestions shared in your blog. One more thing I would like to convey is that weight reduction is not supposed to be about going on a celebrity diet and trying to reduce as much weight as possible in a set period of time. The most effective way to shed weight is by getting it slowly but surely and following some basic guidelines which can enable you to make the most from a attempt to lose weight. You may be aware and be following a few of these tips, yet reinforcing knowledge never hurts.

    I’ve learned a number of important things by means of your post. I would also like to mention that there will be a situation where you will apply for a loan and don’t need a co-signer such as a National Student Aid Loan. But if you are getting financing through a traditional finance company then you need to be made ready to have a cosigner ready to allow you to. The lenders can base that decision on a few variables but the largest will be your credit worthiness. There are some lenders that will likewise look at your job history and come to a decision based on that but in many cases it will be based on on your report.
