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!
EDSA Shrine September 11 Pork Barrel Rally: Time Schedule and Location
After the not-so-well-attended-yet-still-successful Million People March in Luneta last August 26 to denounce the pork barrel, there's the new prayer rally at the EDSA Shrine, at the corner of EDSA and Ortigas Avenue right in front of Robinsons Galleria not generally suported by netizens but sanctioned by the powerful Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP)
Location: EDSA Shrine, EDSA corner Ortigas Avenue (Quezon City or is it now Pasig City?)
Time: 11am to 5pm (good, it will not affect Tutubi's daily grind to Makati in the morning)
Is Tutubi joining? No, it's a weekday, he'll just support online
take note that it's not only the House of Representative and the Senate who should abolish pork barrel system, large cities like Quezon City have them where councilors get lump sum amounts to implement projects (even if their job is to create local ordinances) like useless overpasses, waiting sheds and street signs just to display their names
Quezon City is the epal capital of the Philippines!
