The movie "SiARGAO" does not only promote Surigao del Norte's most famous island but also immortalizes the Surigaonon Language.

It even dares to use Surigaonon's expression "Jawa!" Literally, "jawa" means "devil". Originally, Surigaonons use it to swear:"Jawa kaw!" (You're a devil!)
But, when it's exclaimed in a soft tone, it becomes an expression of endearment. In the movie, Diego (Jericho Rosales) spontaneously utters "Jawa!" upon seeing his childhood friend again since he left the island. Surigaonons do that when we meet our long lost "kababayans."

Except for the word "akon" (instead of "ako"), Rosales talks like a native Surigaonon. Saludo kami! Surigaonon na kaw gajud, Bay Kuya J!:)

Casting the local surfers makes the movie more realistic. Showing the non-surfing spots of Siargao strengthens the island as a wholesome tourist destination. Noteworthy too is the inclusion of the environmental issue ("basura sa baybay") and the LGU's solid waste management project--- a must for this Pacific surfing hub!

The movie's love story may not be as
intense as the usual Pinoy dramas or as cool as "rom-com" genre. But, it challenges "millenials" to reflect deeply on love relationships by going to a serene place like Siargao Island.

Tan-aw na sa salida!
Kadto na sa Isla Siargao!
