Meet the Descendants of Apolinario Mabini in THE SUBLIME PARALYTIC!

August 24, 2015
20 Descendants

Pelagia and Reynaldo Mabini, mga inapo ng ating bayaning Apolinario Mabini na nakapanayam ko para sa “The Sublime Paralytic.” Napakalaki ng pagkakahawig ni Mang Reynaldo kay Mabini laluna noon nasa edad 40 sya, aniya.

“Kung makikita nya [Mabini] ang sitwasyon sa panahong ito, ang kalooban nya ay siguradong maghihimagsik dahil ito’y taliwas sa pananaw nya sa buhay. Masasabi nya siguro na masama talaga kinasasapitan ng bayan, magiging masama kung matutuloy ang [ganoong] korapsyon. Ito ay ayon kay G. Reynaldo Mabini, apo ng ating bayaning Apolinario na ngayo’s isang pastor. Siya at ang pinsan nyang si. Ms. Pelagia ay nakapanayam ko noong huling bahagi ng taong 2014 para sa dokumentaryong Apolinario Mabini: THE SUBLIME PARALYTIC [English version] / PULE: Utak ng Rebolusyon [Filipino Version]. Ang panayam ay ginawa sa kanilang bayan sa Tanauan, Batangas. Nabanggit nila off-camera na mahirap ding magdala ng pangalang Mabini sapagkat kailangan nilang pangalagaan ito dahil sa dangal na inihatid ng kanilang Lolo sa kanilang angkan.

Samahan kami sa darating na Huwebes!!!—Watch THE SUBLIME PARALYTIC! Premiere Showing on August 27, 2015 at DLS-CSB ARG Theater, 5th floor, 4 pm, Benilde Taft Campus

  1. My husband Rafael Tambor Gaid is a 4th generation of Apolinario Mabini, his brother Severino/Saturnino married to Catalina Castillo. They move to Samar during the war. They had 4 children: Eusebia, Jose, Juan, Victoria and Cirilo. Eusebia married Gavino Tambor and they had 4 children: Memong, Dolores, Remedios (mother of Rafael, my husband), and Vicente (still alive, 93 years old). We would like trace the Mabini ancestry, we would appreciate any help you can extend. Thank you very much.


  2. Happy to learn about your family link with Apo Mabini. You can easily find his descendants in Tanauan, Batangas where he was born. They live near the Mabini Shrine or Museo ni Apolinario Mabini. Look for the Shrine Curator Ms. Olga Palacay, introduce yourself to her and she will gladly lead you to his descendants. If you are in Samar, you may first contact Ms. Palacay at the Tanauan Museum. Tel.# is (043) 455-2105. The other descendant of Mabini I met works at Malolos Museum in Bulacan. I forgot his first name but his surname is Mabini also. You can contact him there. Hope you meet all of them. They are all nice, kind and simple — very much like their Lolo Apolinario or Pule.
