You can get these tempered colored glass from Pacific Glass:
http://www.pacificglass.com.ph/contact.htm

However, they are expensive ha. May extra charge din per hole (e.g. for convenience outlet, glass studs, etc).

One alternative is, order a tempered glass from a glass supplier and then buy those colored stickers or frosted stickers from:
Lexton Commercial Marketing Corp.
Address: , 502 Edsa, Caloocan City, Metro Manila, Philippines
#: 364-5215 / 364-1783 / 364-7763 / 366-5215 / 366-3641

I think home depots also has these glass films. Do check na lang. Goodluck!

what other materials can be used as a backsplash?

I like the one in the 1st pic, stainless steel: http://www.hgtv.com/kitchens/10-kitchen-backsplashes-that-wow/pictures/index.html

Madali pa linisin.

How much should I budget for it? I want it installed in a small condo kitchen. Ano ba yung price range? Thank you.

To name a few:
Stainless steel sheet/tiles
Colored/frosted glass
Glass/ceramic mosaics
Granite or solid synthetic
Mirror
Porcelain or ceramic tiles
Stone
Alum composite panel (for some)

Based on experience, mas maraming grouts, mas mahirap linisin.

^pagkakaalam ko mahal ang stainless steel but it also depends on the thickness and grade. Grade 304 is more expensive than Grade 202. I'm talking about sheets not tiles ha. Not familiar with tiles. Never pa ko naka-encounter ng stainless steel tiles.

of course. exposed concrete ba siya right now or painted? maybe pa-paint mo na lang muna para hindi naman pangit when you use it or if you have guests.

does your countertop has backsplash like this:
http://www.kitchens-images.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/kitchen-wall-backsplash-4.jpg

countertop backsplash is usually the same material and pattern as your countertop, it prevents leaking from the counter down into the base cabinets.  if you have this, you can use your kitchen anytime, if none, ingat na lang sa water.

chefron, it was ok. most of the suppliers there kilala ko na but i was able to get new suppliers din but konti lang. i was there 30 minutes lang unlike sa FAME, hours! Worldbex is good if you are building your house kasi for construction talaga siya.

^yes ok naman mosaic sa kitchen. mahirap lang linisin kasi madami grouts but otherwise ok siya and maganda.  just choose the right mosaic kasi may mosaic na cheap tignan.

granite is nice but others sometimes use both.  4" of granite then the rest of the wall going up till the wall cabinets is mosaic tiles.  ;)
