Malabon City, Philippines
Situated in the Northern Sector of Mega Manila, the thriving City is bounded on the North by the City of Valenzuela, on the West and Southwest by the City of Navotas, and on the East and Southeast by Caloocan City.

The City of Malabon is a traditional fishing village traversed and divided by a once navigable river system that, in the past centuries, reached the upstream provinces of Bulacan and eastward localities of the National Capital Region.

The 1980s' reclamation project for residential areas consumed most of the local fishpond areas. This period also introduced more diversity in commerce and industry.

Withstanding time and the toll of change and progress, the new City still retains its reputation as a fish-trading center of the metropolis; such that, the time-honored "bulungan" and other activities in numerous "consignacion" dotting the riversides render the midnight and early dawns as festive and hyper-trading hours.

Malabon’s enduring image is its proximity to the bounty of the sea. This image is made even more aqueous by the presence of three major rivers (Malabon, Tinajeros and Tullahan Rivers) that traverse the City.

Its geographical location, which is the downstream or end line of the North Metro's river system makes the river system doubly prone to water pollution.

History of Malabon City, Philippines

source verbatim: www.malabon.gov.ph

Algoreth’s “Etimologias Filipinas” says that Malabon. once a quaint town, was named “Tambobong” more than four hundred years ago.

Tambobong was said to have been one of the tribal domain of Rajah Soliman, cousin of Rajah Matanda of the nearby Manila area.

The former name originated from the numerous tambo trees growing in the area. While the name that endured describes the abundant tender and edible shoots of the bamboo: “labong”, which was one of the original ingredients of Malabon’s signature dish: the Pancit “Malabon”. In the Spanish Era, the riverside town became the convenient vacation spot for the friars and government officials of the Intramuros. They were known to call the place Malabon. It was “mala” because of the mud that dirtied and ruined their expensive leather shoes and exquisite, long robes imported from Europe; and it was “bon/buen” for its restorative, fresh air and excellent cuisine.

Historians listed various years for the town's foundation; being 1571, 1600, 1607 and 1670. Records show that March 21, 1599, Tambobong came under the administration of the Augustinian Friars as a bisita or parish along with the town of Navotas. However, after 260 years and within several years span, the twin towns were separated and rejoined and later rendered autonomous for posterity.

During the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries, Tambobong benefited from its robust economic activities due to its proximity to the Walled City of Intramuros and the Galleon Trade in the Manila Bay Area.

In 1768, “Casa Regal de Tambobong”, a tribunal building was established indicating the town’s voice in legal and political affairs of the times.

Tambobong’s further industrialization was manifested by the 1851 establishment in Hulo of a huge tobacco factory called “La Princesa” owned by the King of Spain.

1888 was highlighted by the first Trambia de Bapor that plied Malabon’s River system which was an efficient entry to the northern provinces.

After the American Revolution of 1896-1898, Twentieth Century Malabon became a town of the Rizal Province through the Philippine Commission Act No. 137. It was reunited with the town of Navotas through Philippine Commission Act No. 942. Six years later, in January 6, 1906, Malabon and Navotas were reestablished as two distinct towns.

Natural Resources of Malabon City, Philippines

Protect the environment

It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.

Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!


Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.

The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.

To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.

Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More


We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.

This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

We have so much water in the Philippines and yet very little to drink.

PIA Press Release
2008/04/21
PGMA to inaugurate new 11-storey Malabon City Hall building
Malabon City (21 April 2010) -- President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo will inaugurate today (April 21) Malabon City's newly-constructed 11-storey city hall building along F. Sevilla Blvd. in Barangay San Agustin.

The inauguration coincides with the celebration of Malabon's 7th anniversary as a city.

The President is expected to lead the guests in unveiling the marker signaling the formal opening of the new city hall building for business.

After the unveiling ceremony, the President, assisted by Malabon Mayor Tito Oreta, will be given a tour of the building and briefed on its various offices and facilities.

After the tour, the President is expected to distribute Certificates of Eligibility of Lot Award (CELA) to deserving Malabon City residents who have been pre-determined to receive the awards.

Dubbed as a "potential business center of the city," the new Malabon City Hall building will serve as a one-stop shop for government transactions.

Aside from its state-of-the-art facilities such as three high-speed elevators which will ferry passengers to and from the numerous floors faster and safer and with a commanding view of the metropolis, the new city hall building and its offices will operate on a "digital system."

This new system, according to Edwin Deala, chief of Malabon's Management Information System, will make the usually tedious chores of paying taxes and renewing business permits faster and easier.
