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!

    ABS-CBN Umagang Kay Ganda in Boracay

    Day 2 of Tutubi's Boracay with a blast, ABS-CBN's early morning show Umagang Kay Ganda was present in Boracay with live telecast in front of La Carmela de Boracay at Station 2. This confirmed the news that they've a shoot there when Rica Peralejo was with Tutubi from Caticlan Airport on her way to La Carmela de Boracay

    At this moment, Tutubi morphed into paparazzi to test how his Nikkor 18-200 VR would fare under the condition. Herewith are the celebrity pictures of the popular TV show plus the crowds on the beach watching, participating or just plain "uzi."

    no celebrity bikini babes here, sorry, but still it's an Umagang Kay Ganda (So Beautiful Morning) all Kapamilya!

    Nice Boracay report. I love those celebrity sightings photos...

    Off-topic: Thanx for the invitation for the calaguas island trip. I didn't get to see it on time. I hardly connect to the internet nowadays. Pero kung meron similar trip in the future, let me know. I might be able to tag along. Thanx, Tutubi ;)
