SIX YEARS!!! It’s been a good and great six, long years of LANGYAW.COM!

I’ve only scratched the surface of Marawi City, my second visit when I went back there last June as part of my 1828 KM travel around West Mindanao. But more importantly, I was looking for a torogan, a traditional Maranao royal house for a magazine feature. Mindanao State University is the first stop for any such cultural explorations.
