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!

    Colorful Photos of Makati Caracol Festival 2010

    Just this morning Tutubi went to Makati to cover Caracol 2010 (Caracol 2010 Schedule posted earlier) and got to take pictures of parade participants in colorful costumes and was also able to meet, albeit for such a few seconds, the blogger behind Traveler on Foot who texted him a few hours earlier to inquire about Caracol Schedule.

    Herewith are some photos of Makati Caracol 2010:

    Comments: Caracol Festival 2010 didn't start on time, just like earlier reported editions of the festival that always jibe with Cebu's Sinulog festival, Kalibo's Ati-atihan, or Iloilo's Dinagyang Festival. The advertised time of activities was 2pm but the actual parade started around 4pm. It was, however, a photographer's day as many shutterbugs (even a bunch of lomography enthusiasts) trooped to the deserted Ayala Avenue for colorful photo-op to the extent of blocking and interrupting the actual parade to capture the perfect shot.

    Sa Makati, hindi tama sa oras. 'Wag naman sana ganyan din lagi sa buong bayan!

    It all started with original Ati-Atihan and now there's many of these festivals .. whoa !

    traveler on foot, next time we won't be busy taking pictures hehe

    pusa, late na nga nag-start as in past four na. i took pictures of the parade but left without watching the street dance contest proper. kawawa mga bata dun aga pa lang pagod na. pero kung nakita kita batiin kita and/or take your picture hehe

    the dong, sayang didn't know or texted. some other time...dami pa naman photo-op na darating like the Aliwan Fiesta 2010 :P

    bw, right you are, the Ati-atihan is really the mother of all festivals in the Philippines. It's just sad that you really can't distinguish which is which from pictures for the costumes all look the same.

    there's always a silver lining to the dark clouds. i didn't realize that this caracol festival is being held in makati.
