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!
A marvelous, English-style gothic architecture of a Catholic church, St. Mary's cathedral was first seen by Tutubi, on board a car of a friend who migrated to Australia last year, en route to various places for some sort of a Sydney Explorer tour.
The cathedral sports a brown color with spires that can be seen from a distance and located beside Hyde Park where Tutubi's hotel is also within walking distance (almost every interesting place in Sydney is really withing walking distance)
after two days, Tutubi returned to St. mary's Cathedral armed with his new tripod he bought specifically for his Australia trip (Tutubi is averse to tripod for its another thing to lug around but this time his officemate carried it for him)

When Tutubi arrived at the church, the mass schedule of 6pm hs just started and Tutubi took the time to hear mass. He left immediately after the ceremonies and didn't take more pictures of the interiors, altar, pipe organ, stained-glass windows and the crypt of the unknown solider when he read a notice to ask for permission if anybody wanted to take photos of the place.
