Maguindanao, my 68th Province!

Last July 7 and 8, 2012, I had an enriching weekend trip in Cotabato City and Maguindanao, the 68th province on my list. I am glad to travel with my fellow travel bloggers Eric of Byahilo: Ito ang Trip ko! and Bernie of HabagatCentral.com. It was a weekend of learning new things, experiencing a different culture, appreciating great architectures, and trying out new food.

Here's a summary of the places we visited and the things we did:

Datu Odin Sinsuat, Maguindanao
  • Tamontaka Bridge
  • Al Jamelah Weaving Center
  • Lourdes Grotto
Cotabato City
  • The old and new City Hall
  • Sultan Hadji Hassanal Bolkiah Masjid, largest mosque in the Philippines
  • Ate Pastil, a popular Maguindanaon delicacy
That's it for now. More photos and detailed posts on these soon! Cheers! Check out my "#80PHL Challenge" for the list of provinces I've visited so far.
