MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Miss Philippines’ Gazini Ganados may have failed to bring home this year’s Miss Universe crown, but her national costume made to Hollywood.
Today, Disney Pictures announced that Ganados’ elaborate silver gown, complete with silver eagles nesting on either shoulder will be featured in ‘Frozen 3,’ as Elsa the Snow Queen and her sister Anna continue on an adventure far away from the Kingdom of Arendelle.
Disney says Ganados’ costume has the right feel and the right color for Elsa’s queenly wardrobe in her continuing frozen adventure.
‘Frozen 3’ is scheduled for release in the fall of 2020.
SAN FRANCISCO, California (The Adobo Chronicles. San Francisco Bureau) – Following a San Francisco Immigration judge’s decision to grant political asylum to a Filipino couple who arrived in the U.S. for sight-seeing in 2000 and now claims persecution by President Rodrigo Duterte if they return to the Philippines, hundreds of thousands of undocumented Filipinos living in America have filed asylum applications with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). For the same reason.
It is estimated that there are at least 300, 000 Filipino TNTs (Tago Ng Tago) —those hiding from Immigration — in America today.
Obviously, President Donld Trump is not happy about this. Neither is President Duterte.
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – One is enough, two is too much. And so the Philippines is withdrawing from the Miss Universe competition and will no longer be sending representatives to this annual international beauty pageant.
In 2015, pageant host Steve Harvey announced the wrong winner of the the Miss Universe crown — Miss Colombia instead of the real winner Miss Philippines.
Then today, in the 2019 edition of the pageant, it was announced that Miss Malaysia won the Best in National Costume award. But the real winner was Miss Philippines.
Fed up with the gaffes, the Binibining Pilipinas Charities, franchise holder of the Miss Philippines-Universe pageant, announced it was withdrawing from the Miss Universe pageant altogether.
”The Miss Universe Organzation seems to have a beef with the Philippines,” a spokesperson for the charities told The Adobo Chronicles.
