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!

5 Years, 774 Posts and 7 Links to Visit: Tutubi's First Meme
More than five years blogging and 774+ posts and not a single meme as Tutubi is not really into memes that was the fad before Facebook became a byword.
But as a courtesy to
, who tagged Tutubi, he gave in, just once, thus this post.
Your most beautiful post Tutubi's most memorable trip to the Philippines' best beach: Calaguas Island Your most popular post this is a "trade secret" but it's the second page clicked by visitors referred by the number one keyword of this blog: backpacking philippines :P Backpacking Philippines Travel Guide Your most controversial post Nothing really controversial in this blog but a SEO experiment is still getting one or two hits a day. Your most helpful post Still the best Pagsanjan Falls guide there is: Pagsanjan Falls A post whose success surprised you Thought of posting the information when Tutubi was unable to get it from any other site: HM Transport/Green Star Express Bus to Sta. Cruz, Laguna. A post you feel didn’t get the attention it deserved: Few people really follow and emulate Jose Rizal these days. Students are just forced to read his two novels in high school and a Rizal course in college, fed down the throat to comply with the Claro M. Recto-backed Rizal Law. Tutubi has been all but a few of the 27 Rizal Shrines listed by the NHCP and DOT, even before the "amazing race" was launched last June 19. Lakbay Jose Rizal@150 The post that you are most proud of just read why ;P 5 Years of Blogging No Quid Pro Quo No one to tag as he's not really into this, just feel free to post your own. link bait courtesy of Tripbase

memes are fun especially if you're a photo blogger.

edelito, you're welcome
seair, other posts should've been here too but just 7 :( photocache, i had another anonymous blog that i maintained for almost a year before I started this one docgelo, you can still go for it, never too late. i don't really like memes for they're usually off-topic. i got tagged mostly by personal bloggers who seem to be nowhere to be found these days unlike a few years back

congrats to your 7 links. I know it is more than that. And i'm proud of you to visit many rizal shrines all over the Philippines. Hope to meet you someday. :)

Natawa naman ako dun sa SEO experiment mo haha
I just found today that Rizal is part of the very handful people who are Polymaths. Wow!
