Assalamo Allaikom to all our friends,

You can read about our place’s royalty, history and culture, if you have any comments to this page please feel free to visit our guestbook or e-mail us. We are open for all kinds of response -- positive and negative. If there's something you miss, tell us about that too.

My first name is Acmaly officially Acmad, to correctly pronounce “Ahmad”. Dimaporo Macagaan Abdulmadid Maruhom are my family names. Most of my family and closest friend call me Ontay, short of Mamaontay mispronounced and corrupted form of Mamarontay which means the Slasher. I'm a 30+ years old, from Mindanao a beautiful and most glorious island in Philippines, my tribe is Iranaon/Meranao the only undefeated nation of Mindanao and Philippines during the Spanish conquistadors in the Island

I was born in Wato Balindong Lanao Del Sur and raised in a part of central Unayan called Marogong, and this is where I've lived most of my life.  in March 1993 I had to move to Cagayan de Oro city in order to study. I completely finished my courses, Computer science and Business Administration at Cagayan de Oro College (COC). It's a one of the very good school in Northern Mindanao. I’ am one of the pioneer students of System Institutes of Technology (STI) in Cagayan de Oro city. 3rd kyu brown belter rank of AIKIDO, Mindanao Aikido Propagation Center (MAPC) CDO.  Before I moved in CDO; I am 3rd year college of Natural Science and Mathematics, major in Zoology at Mindanao State University (MSU) Marawi City. I study vocational, training for electronics technicians in Manado City Indonesia, training for computer hardware technician in Riyadh KSA and balloons arrangement in Saudi Arabia, trained in Lebanon Middle East for this field.

Without attending elementary grades, I graduated in high school as Valedictorian, and first honor in my entire Arabic grades. Student leaders from high school to college, first Muslim elected president of student body organization (SBO) of Cagayan de Oro College at Cagayan de Oro city, received leadership awards. I love business than a government position,  at the age of 18, I joined with East Asia Growth area (EAGA) importer and exporter business, one of the pioneer batch first reached Manado city Indonesia and Sandakan, Kota Kinabalo Malaysia in 1994 for importing ready to wear items (RTW), first businessman sale pirated VCD and video compact disc players from Thailand and Indonesia to Philippines, with the price of 350 pesos each and whole sale of 170 pesos, single players for 8000 thousand pesos on the same year.

As a businessman I handled the capital amount of 17,000,000.00 Pesos from my grandfather and 10 Million from a Chinese friend. We had money changer shop in Manado city partner with a Chinese friend in Manado Indonesia, sad to say that I’ am now in first level to have that amount again ^__^,

In 2001, I moved to Saudi Arabia as OFW when my capital lost for election, my father won for election against his contender with only 9 votes, sad to mention as a result of recount election protest we are defeated after all, politics is dirty and fun game for the losers. My life in Saudi is very colorful lot of experiences that I had, working with 8 kinds of nationalities is very challenging totally deferent with my life as businessman. In 2005, I went back to my country and married to my first cousin, after a year Allah blessed us baby girl. Being a father of the family, I must double my effort to sustain the daily life and my family, my video shop, Internet café in CDO and grocery store were not enough, I decided to have business again not in CDO but in Riyadh Saudi Arabia, then I rented store from a Saudi national and par time computer teacher at private school.

In September 2010, I decided to sale my store in Al-Badia Riyadh KSA moved to Jeddah and finally I joined Alstom power the world leader in integrated power plants for the production of electricity and air quality control systems. Alstom has solutions for all energy sources (coal, gas, nuclear, fuel-oil, hydropower, wind) and is a leader in innovative technologies for the protection of the environment (reduction of CO2 emissions, elimination of pollutant emissions). The Group is also developing CO2 capture processes and has integrated this technology in pilot plants in Germany and USA.  Alstom’s technological advances allowed the company to achieve the world rail speed record at a speed of 574.8 km/h on 3 April 2007. My Designation in this company is project controller and promoted as Project Administrator then material estimator and in charge at Alstom JIF to 2013.

I’m rendering voluntary services to the Filipino community in Jeddah KSA and appointed acting Chairman of Marogong Global Incorporated (MGI) and General Secretary of ASPIA, Ampaso Sayawa Pondag Islamic Association. In 2013 I decided to serve Filipino subscribers of TFC, then I formally accepted the offer of Sky Freight under Kamal Al Wassia Company LTD as Regional supervisor for cargo department, after 6 months I was appointed as assistance in-charge of the department of SF-TFC, on 2014 SF-TFC became business partner of Orbit Showtime Network  (OSN) the leading pay TV in middle east, the general manager of Sky Freight in the good name of Mr. Remigio L. De Guzman promoted me as regional manager (western region) for OSN operation and technical to the present.

I hated the form of our government, never to have government position. We are not promoting politics in our websites (www.acmaly88.page.tl); they said that to whom you know in government to have better position in the government but not what you know. In our website, I’m not promoting myself in the future politics. Religion, History and the royalty in Mindanao is my main concerned, that made Gold and Bronze different, south is pure Gold and north is Bronze.

What I do most of my spare time is hanging out with my friends and cousins. When I'm hanging out with my friends, we use to have Sizaaaa in a safe coffee shop, we use to watch a movie, eat out, cook our favorite foods, watch TV, talk about whatever comes to mind, or do some of all the other interests we have, we organized the MGI trippers to tour the historical places in Arabia, the purposes of this travelers and adventures  is to stretch our mind and twist the mentality, to experience things which is not yet discover ourselves, to earn new knowledge on how it was happen, to collect more ideas and call it ELM.

My Genealogy

Why I Called Datu? Well, datu is a traditional royal title in Mindanao during pre Islamic period, they said it is a prince, Datu a male noble rank is given to a native of a place, the Ruler, Chieftain, and the heir of a royal Sultan or Chieftain. In a Modern time Datu is given address to a learned man “Maungangun” full of knowledge, and Wiseman from a royal line, heir of Sultan or Bae a Labi recognized in the place where he came from.

My grandfather told me that I am reserve for the title Datu Panondiongan sa Marogong and Binidayan with succession right as Sultan in the Sultanates of Butig, Masiu, Bayang, Pagayawan, Borokot, Taporog, Wato, Binidayan, Raya, Sawer, Ramain, Tubaran and Marogong. Calling me Kaka e Salangata, Mangoda maungangun in FB and Datu Lawan sa Ranao (extra ordinary Datu of Lanao) of our Maguindanao brothers in Buyaan is really fluttering.

Sultan Abdulmadid B. Maruhom (graduated mayor of Binidayan, Tubaran and Marogong Lanao del sur) is noble and scion of Pagayawan, Bayang, Binidayan, Tubaran and Marogong, first married to Bae Pantalan (sabir a Bae) daughter of late Sultan of Wato, Dangcogan brother of Dimaporo amai Ali Dimaporo (son of Mangotara late Sultan of Binidayan) to Peki late Bae a labi sa Masiu sister of Macagaan (late Sultan Simban of Masiu) and Macalipot (late Sangcopan of Masiu).

Sultan Abdulmadid and Bae Pantalan bore only Hadji Areef “Datu Pasayod” who was married to Bae Adia Managantal Repors Guiling Macagaan, granddaughter of Late Sultan sa Raya “Darimbang” a martyred “sahid” in Linamon Lanao del Norte on 1891. Managantal Daromoyod, late Sultan of Wato after Dangcogan, from the line of Sawalo one of the children of Amerol Umra of Maguindanao. Radiatua of Wato of his son Datu Lantong who was married to Gambiran daughter of Mangadog of Ramain. Tungko of Wato who was married to Dapan daughter of Matimtim of Ramain who was married to Alongan of Masiu. Guiling, late Sultan of Masiu young crowned and reigning sultan he relinquished his crown to Gov. Ali Dimaporo “Poon e Guiling” scion of Masiu. and Repors Family of Moritao Sharief and Moriatao Bae of Masiu Lanao del sur.

Pasayod and Bae Adia bore 8 children, one of them is Datu Acmad (Ontay) M. Abdulmadid married to Bae Esnie daughter of his uncle Apinton Maruhombsar a Half Brother of his father and scion of Binidayan, Madamba and Ganassi. Esnie’s mother is H. Asiza Usngan Abdul Popularly known her family of Raraco and Olama of Basak Binidayan. Ontay and Esnie graced with a beautiful baby girl name…..Princess Amrinah……….



In this website, I’m not promoting myself in the future politics. Religion, History, and the royalty in Mindanao is my main concerned, that made Gold and Bronze different, South is pure Gold and North is Bronze.

Abdul, pace of Advise and FYI when you heard Dimaporo Clan most Maranao are aware, when you said Enca no one knows,Karomatan is a Dimaporo's Kingdom not even Pantaran, Dimaporo and Pantaran equal in genealogical claim they belong to Noron particular to Bae sa Kuba Omba "Bagumbarana in long name" who was first married to Amai Takilid Sultan of Sigayan and got Lumba married to the Sultan of Binidayan and got Dimaporo Clan, Their claim of the sultanates of sex Panorogan of Kapagatan are legitimate, they are native in that place as you....

Thanks a lot for including a brief comment on my father's legacy. He was truly missed and his way of dealing with his "Datoan" is beyond compare nowadays. He was not only a Father to me but a friend and true religious leader that inspires me to strive harder. Thank you again.

Hello Datu Ontay,

My name is Jeannife Darimbang Canonizado. I am the Grand daughter of Jose Rawaka Darimbang. I am not sure if we have any family relations, but I am in search of my knowing my family heritage, not only for myself, but for my mother, Monira Darimbang. My mother mentioned to me that her father was a Datu, who had left his home, Dansalan Lanao, during the late 1930's - 1940's. My mother was a child when her father had died, but she did tell me that when she was six years old, her Uncle, Domocao Alonto, visited them in Rosales, Pang.. and wanted to bring them home to Mindanao, but at that time, my grandmother would not allow it; mind you, this was during the early 1950's. If you or anyone you know can provide me with any information about my family's history, I would be grateful. I have cousins, as well, that are grand children of Jose Rawaka Darimbang, who would like to know where our family started. Thank you.

Comment By KAKA Mohammad Casser from our Guestbook,

Assalamo alaykom. Sanggibo salamat rkano a manga datu ago mga bae a thatandingan sangkae a website. Paganaya-e a kiyapaka awtakun sangkaya a website na tanto a miyakapiya aginawako. Adun pun aki a daklas ko kaiisa o bangnsa tano. Just an eye view, I read here the salsila in Wato and I remember when I met last 3 months ago one of our elders in Raya Wato in the name of Kaka Ustad Pinto who advised me to study my bangsa sa wato. And I read here what he told me. Sukran. My mother Roqaya is the daughter of Sultan sa Wato Macadaag "Hadji Sokor" Benito Pascan. Pascan is a brother of Bae Baida (grandparent of Sultan sa Binidayan and sultan sa Masiu). I was told that when my grand father settled to his mother side in Ganassi, he relenguished the grar as Sultan sa Wato to Dancogan, Uncle of Sultan sa Binidayan and Sultan SA Masiu? I know very little of my connection to Wato. All I know is the reigning Bae sa Raya (Hadja Aisha, daughter of Bapa hadji Basheer) is my second Cousin. Allaho akbar. We need to know more about bangsa sa Ranao for us to help establishing unity, solidarity and team work for our people in Lanao and Mindanao as a whole. We can, however, use Qur'an as our guide. Allah said: The best among you in eyes of Allah are those who fear Allah. Salamaaaat.......

The Sarimanok is a legendary bird of the Maranao people who originate from Mindanao, a major island in the Philippines. It comes from the words "sari" and "manok." "Sari" means cloth or garment, which is generally of assorted colors.  Manòk is a Philippine word for chicken.

It is the legendary bird that has become a ubiquitous symbol of Maranao art. It is depicted as a fowl with colorful wings and feathered tail, holding a fish on its beak or talons. The head is profusely decorated with scroll, leaf, and spiral motifs. It is said to be a symbol of good fortune

The Sarimanok is derived from a totem bird of the Maranao people, called Itotoro. According to the Maranao people, the Itotoro is a medium to the spirit world via its unseen twin spirit bird called Inikadowa.

The Sarimanok is also believed to have originated from an Islamic legend. According to the legend, Muhammad found a rooster in the first of the seven heavens. The bird was so large its crest touched the second heaven. Its crow roused every living creature except man. Judgement day would come once this celestial rooster ceased to crow

A Maranao legend also says of a Sultan's daughter being swept by a colorful rooster that became a handsome young man and they were never seen ever again. The Sultan then created replicas of the bird to remember his daughter by

Iranaon’s Pride

Iranaons/Maranao are well-known for the aspects of Culture and arts, they gained more prominence in the field of martial arts when the MSU Karate Club successfully garnered three gold Medals and one silver in the 1994 first Philippine National Games – the first time Iranaon/Maranao gained these elusive awards in sports, and up to the present time the club still gaining good records.

In the name of Sport and Martial Arts, Iranaons/Maranao exceed on it and became more and more prominences when the young prince of Marawi in the good name of Datu Revie Saber Sani (son of Sultan Duma S. Sani and grandson of late Mamitua Saber, Radiamuda sa Marawi) won Champion in the international karate competitions like the 2003 8th karate games of the Adriatic in Italy, 2003 8th Czech open karate championship in Czech Republic, 2005 Asian Karate championship in Hong-Kong, China and the 23rd South East Asian Games (SEAGAMES). Datu Revie S.

The Iranaons/Maranao. would someday proven champion in the prestigious of the Olympics as my father’s longstanding dream, Datu Revie said in his Interview.

Pamakot Ka Sa Masa Emanto

A Song of a Moro Artist

The King of Moro Song Datu Komeni Bansuan lunched his new album with the new song “Pamakot Ka”. It could really encourage and inspire each individual who would listen and internalize its deep meaning. Some of its line go this way “ My friend, pamakot ka, know yourself. Pamakot ka while you are young. Know what is happening in this world and think of what you can do. Pamakot ka while still you are healthy and strong. Face your future, don't ever think you cannot make for God has given you all. Isn’t he right in saying this so?

At this point of time, in this era of globalization wherein we can’t describe the kind of life we have. Life expansion decreases due to many illnesses and diseases. It becomes unpredictable when we can’t do anything but to face life as it is. Competitiveness among nations, tribes and even religion brings deep impact to our lives. Thousand of people lost their lives because of such conflict. Survival for poverty really a prime problem of human being. Million of people died because of have nothing to eat.

Now, is Komeni right of giving us a signal to move ahead and to strive hard inorder to survive from this vulnerable world? This is not advertising Komeni but it somehow gives us the lesson to be vigilant of our life.

Connect this message to our own distinctions and undertakings as individuals. As teachers for example, pamakotinka, value your responsibility of molding and teaching the young generation because perhaps time maybe too late for you to do it and you might regret after all. Do this while you are still in the position, while you are strong and while you have all the opportunities of doing it all.

The last line of Komeni’s song says “ Now is the time to reflect on. Ponder on and move fast”. This is just a mere song of an ordinary moro artist but let us not forget great move and action start from an ordinary and simple plan.


Just recently, the global sultanates summit was successfully done. Alhamdulillah, we thanks Allah for the success of the event, everything went smoothly with global summit in Mindanao on 10th and 11th December, 2010, HRH princess Aizian Utto Camsa said in Facebook.

Rambayong modas ako, Ko inged a pilombayan
A bemberano alongan a montiya migagadong
Ko karodano sebangan a indawag ko a sanang
A saliyo a darakn a ginawa ko a rasay
Ka ompen olbi sa ropa sa antawa a daradat
Na taman ko kakawasa natarima ka kakasi

Klong na mars-res malanat malngga masopiit

Na anday kabinentay o pamorawag ko langit
Apgangano liwanag a kaug o maliboteng
O bapno damargn o karanti o alongan a kariga o darako

A kalibotung o kobor matawantawan roo
