Flight chronicles of the backpacker Tutubi, with travelogues, pictures/photos/videos, travel guides, independent and honest reviews, affordable, recommended resorts and hotels (including inns, guesthouses, pension houses, lodges, hostels, condotels, bed and breakfast and other cheap accommodations), commuting guides, routes (sometimes street maps and GPS coordinates/waypoints) and driving directions to answer "how to get there" questions, information and tips on tourism, budget travel and living in Philippines, Exotic Asia and beyond!
Backpacking, independent travel, and flashpacking are cheaper than the "cheapest package tours" and promotional offers around but you can also use travel information for family vacations, even romantic honeymoon destinations.
More than the usual tourist spots and "places to see," this blog advocates heritage conservation, environmental protection, and history awareness for Filipinos, foreigners, and ex-pats wishing to explore Paradise Philippines and Exotic Asia!
On our last day of KL training of Netscreen firewalls, we hopped unto a train at KLCC terminal going to KL Sentral and bought bus tickets at the second floor going to Malaysia's famous hill station: Genting Highlands.
The bus trip took about an hour up the mountain where it's misty and cold. We didn't come here to gamble but just to take a peek at one of Malaysia's tourist attractions plus an exhilirating ride on gondola of Genting Skyway, a fast cable car service.

Inside First World Plaza are replicas of world famous landmarks like Eiffel Tower of Paris, Big Ben of London, Gondolas of Venice, Times Square of New York and many more
There's also a Ripley's Believe or Not gallery or interesting and eerie displays.
After a few photo opportunities, decided to leave early to avoid rush (we bought return tickets as soon as we arrived just to be sure)
