Rajah Kolambu was the chieftain of the Limasawa Island in Southern Leyte when the first mass in the Philippines was held. Upon the arrival of the Europeans in the island, the natives clambered up the rowing boats and received gifts, wherein such action was disliked by Kolambu. The Limasawa leader, on the other hand, offered a basket of ginger and a bar of gold, which, Ferdinand Magellan refused to accept.
