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!
For Tutubi, the most compelling reason to choose Baguio Country Club over The Manor, Club John Hay is simply the famous Raisin Bread of the 100 year old institution in Baguio City where the rich and famous stay.
Aptly named Raisin Bread in honor of its famous product, the Raisin Bread is also known for its banana bread and other pastries, desserts and a hang-out place at Baguio Country Club.

Raisin breads are priced at P130.00 (large) and comes with the distinctive green paper bag of Baguio Country Club. Note that you can't buy raisin bread, banana bread or any other product at Raisin Bread (or avail of other Baguio Country Club services) if you're not a member or currently checked in. It was mentioned the popular Baguio pasalubong will soon be sold at SM City Baguio but not definite date has been given (nor a plan to sell it it Metro Manila, if you know of any Manila pastry shop that sells similarly good raisin breads at less price, please do hit the comment button)
Tutubi stayed at Baguio Country Club during the last long weekend of April 9-11 (Araw ng Kagitingan) but it doesn't mean he's rich nor famous, it's just another one of his company's activities that he co-organized that took him for a planning trip to the City of Pines during the recent Panagbenga Festival (when the stars of ABS-CBN were billeted).
The Baguio Country Club Banana Bread and Raisin Bread may also be purchased at Villa Cordillera along Outlook Drive and at the convenience store of the Caltex gasoline station on Legarda Avenue in Baguio City. Prices though are about 15 pesos higher.
