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!

    Fireworks Photos of 2nd World Pyro Olympics

    Photos from the 2nd day of the World Pyro Olympics at the Esplanade, SM Mall of Asia where we braved humongous traffic going and getting out of :(


    I have a really good view with my tripod perched on top of a huge rock as you can see from the picture before a cameraman, might be from a tv network blocked my view without even saying sorry or excuse me. Instead of thinking something nasty, I just included him in my composition that turned our quite well.


    My first time actually to take fireworks pictures where I got washed out pictures of the first ones I took but I found out my optimum settings for use that night:

    Manual Mode
    Manual Focus
    tripod in use

    that's not all, the biggest hurray for me was my DIY remote control for my 300D with details in my other blog here.

    (i really need to study lighting also but more on DIY lighting setup to save on my hard-earned pesos)

    Check out my other pictures in my Multiply accout that goes by the same name:
    Tutubi Patrol

    lastly, Lady Luck abandoned me when my eyeglasses fell off deep into the crevices of the large rocks of Manila Bay.

    time to visit Quiapo again to buy me a new pair as well as numerous other stuff.

    Looking forward to World Pyro Olympics 2008 :)
