Good Day! In this city journal, we will take a tour at some of the important landmarks and places in Mindanao... My first few update will introduce you on the style of Minadanaoan cities. Aside from that, this will give you an idea that even if Mindanao is an Asian country, it does not necessarily follow that the style of my cities is pure Asian. Moreover, Filipino style buildings, lots and other sc4 stuffs are not available in any Sim City sites, hence, I decided to mix some Western style in this Asian city.
Feel free to say anything about this city journal... any comment will be accepted.
