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!
As Tutubi saw featured on TV, when he was able to visit Marikina he went out of his way to search where Rocha's Special Puto and Kutsinta is located only to find out his friend exactly knew where it was.
mouth watering puto marikina comes at a price of PhP110.00 for fifty pieces.
An office mate of Tutubi, a native of Marikina, claims Aling Remy's Original Special Puto Kutsinta is the first, original and the best (yes, another instance of the use Original so much like the The Original Buko Pie of Los Baños, Laguna and whose stall is just about 100 meters from Rocha's Puto along J.P. Rizal.
Tutubi was able to find Rocha's Puto along J.P. Rizal Street just between Marikina Shoe Museum and Our Lady of the Abandoned Parish Church. Down the road lies D'Original Aling Remy's Special Puto Kutsinta. (click here for a very detailed map of Marikina created by the cool folks of OpenStreetMap and other information how to get to Marikina)
Tutubi has yet to taste the Original Aling Remy's Special Puto Kutsinta to compare with Rocha's Puto so he cannot comment. What's known about the origins of Puto Marikina is actually the original makers were from Polo, Valenzuela which makes Puto Marikina progenies of the delicious puto polo.
