Gregorio Gozon Sanciangco's Historical Marker
Sanciangco St. Bgy. Tonsuya
A native of Tonsuya, Malabon, Gregorio Gozon Sanciangco is the son of Eladio Sanciangco and Regina Gozon. He started schooling at an early age until he finished his Bachelors degree from Colegio de San Juan de Letran and his course in Law at the University of Santo Tomas. In 1878, Gregorio Sanciangco left for Spain to enroll in the Universidad Central de Madrid where he was conferred the title of Doctor of Laws and a Licensure in Administrative Law.

He wrote "EL PROGRESO DE FILIPINAS" a book on economic and political studies of the Philippines. It advocated reforms in the political, administrative, agrarian, revenues, property, natural resources and urban development, taxation and proposed legislation for the implementation of such reforms. Because of this book, he was given tribute by Dr. Jose P. Rizal in the introduction of his work Sobre La Indolencia delos Filipinos.

Upon his return to the Philippines, Gregorio Sanciangco was cautioned by Don Ambrocio Reanzares Bautista not to have returned because at that time Filipino returning from Europe were suspected by the government to have a hand in the 1872 Cavite Mutiny. Filipino priests like Burgos, Gomez and Zamora have executed through the "garrote" for the same reason.
At Don Ambrocio Bautista's advice, Sanciangco proceeded to Cabanatuan, Nueva Ecija and attended to his farming business. He became the Cabanatuan Justice of Peace but was forced by the parish priest to become a fugitive. Meanwhile the Spanish authorities continued their pursuit of Sanciangco. He was later arrested and brought to Manila where he was accused as one of the accomplices in the Cavite Mutiny. However, for lack of evidence, he was released.

Sanciangco returned to his life as a farmer, prospered and acquired a steam sugar mill. He died on November 17, 1897 due to fever.

Tanong Fish Market
Visit Malabon and experience the traditional native fish trading called "BULUNGAN". Bulungan is a bidding practice that started during the Spanish era at the fishing market along the Malabon - Navotas River and is still being done up to this day at the Tanong Fish Market. This kind of fish trading culture is preserved and handed down from one generation to another. It is unique and distinctively Malabon because it does not follow the normal process of bidding. Instead, the spirit of bidding to know the highest bidder is not documented but rather done secretly through silent whispering of bidders' pricing. In essence, this practice is to sell fish to retailers in Metro Manila and other provinces. Fish traders come from the fish ports of Navotas and nearby provinces particularly Bulacan. Usual active time of Bulungan is from 9:00 PM to 1:00 AM.

Malabon as it is today is a thriving commercial - industrial urban city, rich in fish resources & productive fishing industry.
