DAVAO CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Davao Bureau) – The Adobo Chronicles is known for its fearless forecasts and we’ve always subscribed to the mantra,”Life imitates satire.”
Today, we are predicting that when Rodrigo Duterte’s term ends in 2022, another Duterte, Sara, will take over, and six years later, yet another Duterte, Baste. Both are children of the current President.
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) is leaving no stone unturned to protect the dolomite it dumped on the beach at Manila Bay Sands.
The controversial white sand has had its share of praise and criticism, but also some transformation from black sand to white sand to black sand.
In defending its cosmetic project, DENR said the dolomite sand didn’t wash out. Rather black sand from the water washed in.
The agency has lined up several fixes, including dumping dolomite into the water so that white, instead of black sand would wash into the beach. It also said the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) plans to build a breakwater to protect the artificial white sandand keep it intact even with strong current.
DENR is not stopping there.
Today it announced that it will be installing solar-powered giant fans that would blow away the water as well as black sand before reaching the beach.
Already, scientists are hailing the idea as a technological wonder that will put the Philippines on the world map.
QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – In a post on her Facebook page, Leni Robredo announced that all her concerned staff at the Office of the Vice President (OVP) tested negative for Covid-19. It is presumed she did, too.
Robredo and staff went into self-quarantine last week after they reportedly came in close contact with someone who tested positive for the coronavirus.
What Robredo didn’t disclose was that she and her staff tested positive for being “nega,” a term widely used to describe Filipinos who display a negative attitude about social, political and other issues that beset the country. Similar to what many know to be “crab mentality.”
Robredo and the OVP are known for their generosity in criticizing every move or policy of the Duterte administration in order to create a semblance of some opposition — something that many describe as a desperate survival technique.
