Marawi City With Bestfriend

I remembered, I promised last March to post our trip to Marawi City with my bestfriend and mother December last year. I guess I am 6 months late already. Anyway, it's better late than never. 

Going to Marawi was literally an abrupt decision that we had for that trip. I remembered, we were in the jeepney at about 12:15 noontime, on the way home from Ma. Cristina Falls when, we made the decision. We haven't had lunch. My mom just ate an apple she brought. I and Monin, on the other hand, had no lunch at all. The trip took about more than an hour. 

When we arrived at Marawi, we were all starving. The thing is we could not eat yet because we had to wait for Julie to come. It was almost 2:00 PM that we were able to eat at Jeco's. After eating, we went to the mini market at MSU Marawi to buy fruits for inah.

Then, at about 3PM, with my persuading power, Shirib gave in and invited us to his boarding house. It was such a blessing going there because when we arrived, it rained heavily. Shirib's landlord/uncle was so kind to let us in his house. Shirib also fed us with snacks. ^____^ Haha. Again, with my power of persuasion.

 In MSU Marawi, students from ZamBaSulTa (Zamboanga, Basilan, Sulu, Tawi-Tawi) have an organization which is Suarabangsa. They help one another. And they have programs too. My friends are all member of this organization. It was through them that I knew some people too.

Thank you for the food! hahah

Shirib's uncle. One of the Kabs. 
 We spent the afternoon chatting. At 4:30/5:00 PM, the three of us decided to go home to Iligan because last trip of jeeps is 5:30PM.

It was such a memorable day. It really cured my homesickness that moment. And here I am today writing about it and feeling the homesickness again. >___<

When we arrived in Iligan, Monina and I decided to eat at Jollibee. Mom wouldn't want to join us, so she went home ahead of us.
