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!

    Amazing Race Asia 3: Tisha Silang and Geoff Rodriguez

    Followers of the Amazing Race Asia 3, were heartbroken when the usual leading pair of Tisha Silang and Geoff Rodriguez, ended up as first-runner up of the well-loved reality game on AXN.

    During one of the numerous Christmas parties Tutubi attended, much needed breaks from his numerous travels, he was able to meet the pair, given the task at hosting the party at a hotel in Makati City.

    Note that in 1998, Ms. Tisha Silang won the Binibining Pilipinas Universe (Miss Philippines - Universe) but was forced to give up her title due to her being a Canadian citizen (dual-citizenship was not around at that time for the lovely Filipina).

    the beautifully-tanned Tisha gamely posed for a photo of Tutubi wearing his paparazzi hat

    The lovely pair were runners-up of Amazing Race Asia 3, improving on the third-place finish of buddies Marc Nelson and Rovilson Fernandez at Amazing Race Asia 2...

    If only Tutubi can join Amazing Race Asia...but he's not a celebrity :P

    I remember Tisha - former GF of Paolo Bediones and among the original hosts of Mornings @ GMA (now called Unang Hirit).
