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!
Makati: Light and Sound Show Ayala Triangle Garden
Just a walk-by picture of the colorful sound and light show at the Ayala Triangle Garden held every night where you can see the trees at the popular Ayala Triangle park lit up with thousands of LED lights, laser lights that blink and smoke machines dancing to the tune of music (thank goodness, no Gangnam style yet)
a quick picture using iPhone, wasn't able to wait for more colorful sequence, perhaps a visit one of these days as this areas is just across Tutubi's office :P
