Would you believe that this place offers unique places? This is our first time to visit a province that’s part of ARMM (Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao).

I wouldn’t believe it at first but when I saw the Pink Mosque of Datu Saudi Ampatuan, Masjid Abpi of Datu Odin Sinsuat, and Blue Lagoon of Margues, Datu Odin Sinsuat we are in awe moment!

It was Saturday and timely market day of Dalican, Datu Odin Sinsuat and we have witnessed the Maguindanaon trading day.
