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!
Rock Icons/Colorful Jeepney Art (Montalban - Cubao)
Just when Tutubi thought colorful jeepneys are a thing of the past when jeepney operators have the money to paint jeepneys and install borloloys in them, Tutubi noticed a colorful jeepney sporting the faces of rock icons of the ages.
Can you name some of them?
It seems these jeepneys plying the Cubao - Montalban route still have the colorful designs. There were several other jeepneys Tutubi saw but never was able to take a good look or a picture unlike this one who incidentally blocked the corner of the road leading out of Avilon Zoo.
can you guess the names/bands of these rock icons?
the other side
Tutubi loves rock music, but his musical taste ranges from classical to heavy metal-- he van actually connect with almost all kinds of people :P
cebu and davao don't have much jeepneys but AUVs. here in Manila the borloloys and colorful ones are disappearing, usually now old and rundown. i like the cubao-montalban route with jeepneys colorful is the norm :P
