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!
Attack of the Patay Gutom at Grace Sister of Rose Restaurant in Sto. Tomas, Batangas
A sister establishment of Rose and Grace restaurant with some sort of a funny name, Grace Sister of Rose Restaurant Seafoods and Bulalo along Maharlika Highway in Sto. Tomas Batangas, near the traffic-prone Turbina, Calamba (but not for long when the SLEX - Startoll interconnection is opened) is the venue where the meat-starved, carnivorous peers of Tutubi had a sumptuous lunch right after checking out of the detoxification diet of The Farm at San Benito in Lipa City Batangas.
not much to see here but pictures of a deprived bunch of people who swooped down on hot steaming bulalo, crispy tawilis, pinais na dulong and other regular menu fare of the popular restaurant.

the counter of the bulalo restaurant looks like a typical Filipino turo-turo eatery but with airconditioning
In the company of meat-deprived peers, Tutubi wasn't able to take pictures of the food to avoid being left out, only a few snapshots of the aftermath of the attack of the patay gutom!
what's left of the bulalo just a few minutes after it was served. a bowl of bulalo costs P350 at the airconditioned carinderia the patay gutom gang strikes again
This is what happens when you're a meat-lover but taken "by force" to a vegetarian restaurant for 3 days!
