    Article on Tawi-Tawi

    Short, but an interesting read nonetheless.

    Sometimes you're flush and sometimes you're bust, and when you're up, it's never as good as it seems, and when you're down, you never think you'll be up again. But life goes on.
    The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the passion that she shows to the outside world.

    ... nowadays, I believe, 'Tawi-Tawi' constitutes an Autonomous Muslim Region of Mindanao - ARMM for short!

    They probably still are. Apart from you, how many foreigners travel to Western Mindanao?

    Western Mindanao? A small number of westerners live in Zambo. Used to be one on here called Kermit, he lived in a compound and liked guns

    Real name Rodrigo.

    Yep, westerners do live in Zambo, but would they be bothered with the Turtle Islands?

    Gen San, Dapitan, Iligan and Ozamiz are meant to be OK.

    Cotabato, Pagadian, Zambo and the rest of the Sulu peninsular are somewhat precarious according to a number of sources.

    Haven't been over to Zambo in 5 - or maybe 6 - years. Same for Cotabato and Gensan. Most tourist westerners looking for Pinay girlfriends wouldn't bother going past Zambo down to Bongao or anywhere similar, but there are westerners down there.
