Si Bulusan nan si Agingay Project 

 This legend originates from a town in Sorsogon, the mystical Bulusan Volcano, and the Bulusan Lake. In the story, the brave and handsome Bulusan and beautiful Agingay live happily under the shadow of the volcano, but, unknown to the happily married couple, evil lurks in the shadows in the person of Casiguran. Driven by extreme jealousy, Casiguran finds the opportunity to eliminate Bulusan, the person he hates.
