Sulu had always been the "War Zone" in Southern Philippines. In fact, the name of the province itself was linked with the thoughts of the common people as "Conflict-ridden", "Unstable", "filled with fear and poverty", and worst "Terror". Yet nevertheless, Sulu had also given birth to enumerable and unrecorded histories. Sulu may be the 'poorest of the poor' provinces, but still, it had remained to be one of the riches provinces in terms of culture, history and natural resources as well.


This PhotoDocumentation by the author of this blog aims on showing the world what the other side of the coin: Sulu's Hidden Beauty.



Masjid Tulay:
This is the Largest Masjid in the Province.
Situated at the center of the Capital Town of Jolo (Barangay Tulay),
this single building marked the "Dawn of new Hope" for the Tausug People.
Amidst all the instabilities, there lies a new hope that unites the Tausugs as one,
a single beam of light in the great Darkness.
Our religion, Islam, brings Unity.




"Bud TumanTangis"

The highest Peak in Sulu's Land, Bud Tumantangis is a landscape icon,
known for its cone-shape and various legends in Tausug folklores
It is indeed a place you must not miss to visit.



Mau'buh Beach:
One of the coveted White-sand beaches in the province.
Another Place to be there!



The Famous Sulu Sunset
Overseeing the Vast Sulu sea, one will always be awed with the
beauty of Sulu Sunset only to be found in Sulu




The Fountain:
One of the colorful fountains displayed in a park fronting
the Sulu Provincial Capitol.
(People can not still believe that this beautiful scene can be found in the most
'dangerous'--as they said it to be--island)



PC Cannon:
History is everywhere in this small island.
This cannon is a remnant of the Spanish Regime in 1700's
Police Constabulary (PC) compound, Asturias, Sulu.


Sulu Provincial Capitol



Hastana' Kiram:
Among the royal bloods of Sultans and Datus, the Kiram family were among the most famous.
This Hastana' had served as their palace: the birthplace of most of the faces of History in the Sulu Sultanate Lineage.




The Flag of Courage:The Sulu Sultanate Darul Islam
This is the icon of Unity among the Tausug People.
Amidst all the Oppressing acts the Tausug people have experienced, never had come into their minds the word of "Surrender". They never gave up in fighting for their own right for FREEDOM!

So long as this flag stands...
We will keep fighting for our Right!

Allahu Akbar!


================

NOW, DO YOU THINK SULU IS STILL THE 'ZONE of WAR'? THINK AGAIN, there still lies a new face this beautiful island has in store. THIS IS THE REAL FACE OF SULU: THE HIDDEN BEAUTY BEHIND IT ALL. A PLACE OF RICH WONDER, CULTURE, HISTORY and BEAUTY.

WELCOME TO THE LAND OF PEARLS!
DISCOVER SULU ISLANDS!









Bismillah.

After our graduation last April 7, 2011, everything seemed confusing to me. True as other friends of mine had said, Graduating from college is a mixture of emotions; you feel like a hanging rock in the air: nowhere to go. Not knowing whether to settle down or to go up higher. It was more of anxiety than happiness. (well it depends on how the locus of personality someone has, extro or intro).

Anxiety of what would happen next in the future now that I'm done with my BS/AB Degree. Anxious that I may fail in the future now that I have to stand on my own, one way or the other. Fear that I might not be READY to face the REALITY. And thus, each of us where left with the remaining choices available: Either to FIND WORK as early as possible or STOP and be part of the UNEMPLOYED MILLIONS and wish for a miracle to come.

Obviously, we know which one to choose first, but circumstances are just not always going to be how we hope it to be. Only Trust in Allah, the Al-Qadr, can settle the heart of the anxious mind. Prayer. Prayer. and Prayer.

And Now what? Where would Ahmad Musahari go? This I do not have any control of. But at least, I have some plans naman... (These plans will always start with an 'INSHAALLAH')

1) I will surely study in MED.SCHOOL, no matter what it takes! (Its my dream of course). But I have to wait for another year for that to happen. Some unavoidable problems. hehe.

2) so, while waiting for that one-year 'waiting' for my dream to start, I will review my studies and perhaps start orienting myself on the field of Medicine. I know it's a no-more-a-joke thing and I have to really, really prepare myself. I am not yet prepared as of the moment. And if ever I want to reach that dream, I want to be as prepared as I can be! (ang gulo ata)

3) I will stay in Zamboanga City, work in an office (NGO), light works perhaps so as to give time for my review/study. and earn some money to help in my future expensive adventure. Save. Save. Save. (huhu, how I wish I can Buy an SLR, but it has to wait. wait. wait)

4) I will also work as a free-lance writer for some orgs (Tabang Sulu, CBG, Lanao Today), Islamic website and some other blogs. (wow. Konte lang talaga)

5)By then InshaAllah, I might be able to give time to finish my books:-)

Anything else is left for Allah to decide.
