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!
Places like Cembo, Pembo and Comembo, used as addresses by some of Tutubi's classmates in college, located around and inside Fort Bonifacio before it was developed into what it is now?
Answer: The meaning of Cembo, Pembo, Rembo and Comembo
Enlisted Men's Barrios (EMBO) barangays are actually barrios that served as dwelling places of soldiers and their dependents
much like the Projects (Project 1, Project 2 et al) of Quezon City were for government workers
CEMBO: Constabulary Enlisted Men's Barrio
REMBO: Ranger Enlisted Men's Barrio (there's West Rembo and East Rembo)
COMEMBO: Capital Command (CAPCOM)Enlisted Men's Barrio
PEMBO: Panther's Enlisted Men's Barrio (Pathers is another name for rangers)
The impending transfer of those barangays to Makati from Taguig City, makes Makati richer (already the riches city in the Philippines)
better social services for citizens (yes, makati gives people's money away but does not do enough to improve traffic, flooding and other ills of the city)
Number coding with no window from 7am to 7pm as Taguig doesn't have number coding except on C5 and the service road similar to MMDA Number Coding
