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!
just remembered i also have a 3rd camera in my phone that i seldom use. Well i downloaded some pictures I took to post here. I'm not actually a fan of camera phones knowing so much about their limitations even if people brag about having the latest phones with flash and the megapixel hype. It's not just only megapixels, ya know? We can have the same pixel count but the superiority of SLRs against other cameras are their large sensor size aside from high-quality lenses.
anyway, sample pics from my Nokia 6101 (i'm also not a typical pinoy drooling over the latest phone. As long as i can call and send SMS it's ok)
my usually-idle "Les Paul" guitar under ambient light (de-noised)
Canon Digital Rebel EOS 300D. My camera "lens" needs cleaning as well as highly evident poor lighting condition. De-noised also :(
Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn) in Bangkok Thailand: the limitations of phone cameras highly visible here or rather invisible since you cannot zoom in to fine details.
lastly, the best thing with camera phones is that it's with me always not like my bulky and heavy DSLR, even my Canon Ixus 30. Great for taking snapshots of something like this one.
Calling the DTI! Isn't it illegal for stores to have signs like this "No Return, No Exchange". Taken from Giordano SM City North EDSA Annex.
Never mind poor composition and lighting on these photos. It's just for illustration purposes and not for critiquing :)
...but then again owning the latest mobile phone adds "pogi points" :)
