According to an old book on Philippine History I have, the Visayans of
the Philippines divided the year up into twelve months:

Ulalong - January
Dagangkahoy - February
Dagangbulan - March
Kiling - April
Misabuyan - May
Kabay - June
Hidapadapon - July
Libadlubad - August
Kangorasol - September
Bagyobagyo - October
Panglot nga diotay - November
Panglot nga daku - December

Days of the week were 7:

Tagurkad - Sunday
Dumason - Monday
Dukotdukot - Tuesday
Baylobaylo - Wednesday
Danghus - Thursday
Hingothingot - Friday
Ligid - Saturday

The year began with the appearance of the Pleiades

The Ifugao are said to have a year of 13 months with 28 days. On a
leap year they simply added 29 days to the 13th month.
