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!

    wishful thinking day

    to my friends,

    I don't aspire much but I have a long wishlist that keeps on growing day by day by day

    Apple's alluring MacBook loaded with Mac OS X Leopard
    Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II
    Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
    any wide angle (for landscapes) or superzoom (bird watching stuff)

    waterproof case for my iPod Video

    Mazda 3 or Civic 2003 so I won't have to take a cab anymore...sorry, first things first!

    for travel I want to explore Batanes, Batad, Butuan, revisit butandings of Donsol, WW2 trail, Borobudur, Angkor Wat, Taj Mahal and Jaipur India, medieval castles and cathedrals of Europe, pyramids of Egypt, Incas and Mayas of South America (Machu Pichu), the glory that was Greece, Israel, safari trip in Africa, get frostbite in Moscow and a glimpse of St Basil's Cathedral, frolic in Ipanema beach, samurai castles of Japan, Great Wall of China and terra-cotta warriors, eat kimchi in Korea, visit the set of LOTR in NZ, great barrier reef of the land down under, Grand Canyon and natural wonders of North America the moon and outer space!

    anywhere I roam
    where I lay my head is home

    Dream on, tutubi.
    You have insurance, pension and other bills coming up in time! :(

    3 wishes though: world peace, nature conservation and make poverty history!

    after all, it's my day today!

    Since I don't really believe that wishes come true just by wishing it to whatever force you believe is out there who may have the power to grant you your wish, so this I will tell you: I know your wishes can be achieved only by hard work and perseverance which you have in ample measure. Gambatte!

    Cheers on your day!
