About This Blog
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!

    New Tutubi Skin

    The Tutubi is about to turn a year old in blogging, so I decided, as you noticed, he shelved his old skin, put on a new one, and also added a feature I root for in Wordpress: the Read More or pagebreak to expand the posts to be more friendly to slow dial-up users and save on bandwidth!

    Details on How to Add "Read More" Feature to Blogger are posted on the techie side blog of Tutubi.

    Note this blog will still undergo minor surgery particularly bringing back the Labels/Categories pane I unknowing lost when I upgraded to the New Blogger but somehow downgraded to the Classic Blogger again. The unwanted justified boxes need to be centered by modifying the CSS code.

    Btw, The best way to view blogs with expanding posts is to use Mozilla Firefox browser with Google toolbar you can download at the link on the left pane of this blog.

    Once you downloaded and installed the browser, open this blog then right click each "Read More" link to open in a new tab so that you can browse other pages while waiting for the post to load.

    This tabbed browsing feature is now available in Internet Explorer 7 but the Tutubi highly recommends to stay away from IE for security reasons (I'm an Information Security Officer by profession i.e. my primary job function is to keep viruses, worms, trojans, spyware, adware, hackers and fraudsters at bay-- such a daunting task indeed!)

    Lastly, do ping me for I keep on forgetting to update my Links/BLogroll; the Tutubi, and Sidney (the bloggers I met in real life besides the prolific blogger/traveller/photographer Ferdz (preparing for his flight to...on Tuesday), and the travel with heritage conservation advocacy trio of Ivan Henares, Ivan ManDy, Carlos Celdran and lastly the cranky-online-yet-really-nice-in-person R.O.) expected to look like a "heritage" creature is suffering from chronic memory gap.

    I like the contents of this blog, as well as the template. Where can I possibly grab one like this? Blogger's templates are quite dull. :D

    Thanks and regards,

    happy anniversary! of course a new skin is refreshingly welcome, but what matters most is the content--and the content i like very much.
