HONOLULU, Hawaii (The Adobo Chronicles, Hawaii Bureau) – The mobile device game sensation “Pokéman Go” may be on the way out. It’s being pushed out by “Poke Go” which has its roots in Hawaii.
Poke, of course is a Hawaiian raw tuna salad usually made from ahi, ground kukui nut, salt, and a little sesame oil.
You can get poke almost everywhere in Hawaii, including 7-Eleven and ABC stores, but finding authentic poke is always a big challenge.
But now, a new mobile phone “Poke Go” app will help consumers find the authentic version of the dish. It’s as simple as signing in to the app and walking the streets of Oahu and the other Hawaiian islands. Once the app detects authentic poke, your mobile phone plays ukelele music and gives you directions to reach the poke place.
The app can be downloaded from the Apple Store or aboard any Hawaiian Airlines flight to the islands.
ORLANDO, Florida (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – It didn’t take very long for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump to launch his attack on Tim Kaine, who has just been named Hillary Clinton’s vice presidential running mate.
“Contrary to Mrs. Clinton’s meme of ‘moving forward,’ her VP choice represents a step backward,” Trump said. And he has just the right photograph to prove his point.
During Kaine’s first campaign appearance with Clinton in Orlando on Saturday, he was photographed wearing the Clinton logo backwards on his lapel.
The arrow in the Clinton logo was facing backward (or leftward) instead of forward (see photo).
Clinton now regrets not having checked her running mate’s wardrobe before he took to the podium at the Florid International University (FIU).
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – A little less than a year ago, while campaigning for a Senate seat in the Philippines, boxing icon Manny Pacquiao said he will give his full focus and will not be absent should he win in the 2016 elections.
”Kaya po ako natagalan magdesisyon is because of that. Kapag magdecide ako – although nag-decide na nga ako – ang inisip ko, kapag pumasok ako kailangan seryoso, walang absent, palaging papasok, dahil buong bansa ang responsibilidad mo,” the boxing champ said in one interview. (The reason it took me so long to decide [to run], I thought, if I entered the race, I needed to be serious, no absences, always reporting for work, because the entire nation is my responsibility.)
Well, it’s 2016 and Pacquiao — the number one absentee while he was a congressman — is now an elected senator. And guess what?
Boxing promoter Bob Arum has confirmed that Pacquiao has decided to face WBO junior welterweight champion Terence Crawfordin the ring. Arum said Crawford is deemed to be a “high risk-low reward” for Pacquiao but the senator is willing to give the American champion a chance.
The Adobo Chronicles chanced upon Pacquiao while jogging around Luneta (Rizal) Park this morning. We asked him about his promise to the voters that he would focus on his senatorial duties.
