The History of Barangay Malanday, Marikina City
A Brief Historical Background of Malanday
To them and to the residents, Malanday may be divided into 2 parts;
The Patindig Araw which is the area in the north side of the faces directly to the point where the sun rises, and the Pahalang araw that denotes the area in the barrio which is Malanday.
Through the given propositions, it can be clearly seen that Malanday indeed has a very bright future in terms of dominancy shown in the new arrival of those who are occupying positions and capable in improving the town which is clearly indicated.
How Malanday Got Its Name
Years ago, 25 to 30 families whose means of livelihood was fishing, farming, and bilao making were situated in a round barrio in the southern part of Marikina, bilao is a round, plate like dish made from tiny sheets of bamboo used by farmers in crop-harvesting. This product gave close resemblance too the shape of the barrio were the folk men lived. As this observation was
brought by the by passes and even the residents themselves, their place was therefore named Malanday which means something that is round and flat for houses in this Village were built among the entire area, preserving its middle portion for aesthetical and agricultural purposes. Whenever they would visit or go to the place, the term “Malanday” became the pass word of the farmers working in the field and the fisherman in the southwestern area of the village where the Marikina River and the Lamuan Swamp in the eastern area. Malanday passed on from mouth to the residents and by passers until it became the place’s official name.
Birth of Malanday
During 18th century Malanday aws a vast grassland and rice field inhabited by not more than 30 families. To mention a few of them were: the families of Dionisio de Guzman, Cabeza de Barangay, Claro Fernando, a cousin of Dionisio and the second Cabeza de Barangay, Martin Mejia, Cornelio Mejia, Demetrio Fernando, Alejandro Josef, Valeriano dela Paz, and Florentino Mendoza.
These village people didn’t have any means of communication and even transportation. All that they enjoyed for conveyance was a cariton and four carabaos owned by the Cabeza de Barangay Dionisio de Guzman. The fplks made a temporary passage called “Landas ng Kalabaw” or “Hangya”, for its only the carabaos who would dare to walk on the mud during rainy season.
At sometimes in May 1910, the first street was made from the southeastern part of the village to the house of cabeza Dionisio to give way for the first “Sung Mass”of “Canta Misa” tendered by Reverend father Jose de Guzman to the villagers of the Malanday, for Monsignor Jose de Guzman was the youngest among the six children of “Kabesang Isio” and the first Aglipayan priest Barangay Malanday ever had.
In 1973, Malanday people were freed from taxes to a certain Tuason family, who was of Chinese and claiming to be the owner of the land were people worked and lived. The petition for the land transfer in Malanday and in rest of some barrio in Marikina were approved and granted to its residents. The government then purchased these lands from the Tuasons and distributed them to the people. The people in return remitted a nominal amount of 650 per square meter within a period of ten years to the government.
That was the end of Tuason’s ownership and the birth of Barangay Malanday.

Socio-Cultural Development of
Barangay Malanday, Marikina City
Malanday’s population density during the early years of the 19th century was considered very scare to a land of 125 hectares. In 1903 the Bureau of Census and Statistic which now known as, National Census and the Statistic Office had included 238 inhabitants in its count. This population rate from 1903 to 1918 was significantly slow. From 1939 to 1950, no records of census were found available by the researcher due to natural calamities brought about by fire and World Wide II.
In 1960, its population was doubled four times that of the 1918’s population. This 2.5% increase was accounted to the development of three (3) subdivisions: The Sampaguita Village, Filipinas Village and the Sta. Teresita Village. As of 1973 census, Malanday housed 12,707 people or 8.2% of Marikina total population, which were 206,853. This figure rose to 16,409 in the 1980 census, when transient and lical immigrants, residents, workers, students, and employees were included in the barangay court.
From purely agriculture community, malanday today was gradually transformed into a semi-urban community from its rural setting. The progress and prosperity in this barangay is attributed to electrification, peoples traits, competence and skill in making shoes and other cottage industries.
Real estate business in terms of subdivisions had also contributed to the improvement of the community’s economy in the enhancement of the standard of living of its people. Among these subdivision are Filipinas Village, Sampaguita Village, Sta. Teresita Village, Emerald Village, Valentino Subdivisions. The growth of these villages and subdivisions which boast of complete facilities needed for fuller life in an indication of economic prosperity which is being experienced now by Barangay Malanday.
