CAMBRIDGE, MA, U.S.A. (The Adobo Chronicles, Cambridge Bureau) – About a dozen Harvard students flocked to a scheduled lecture by former Philippine Vice President Leni Robredo, one of the Hauser Leaders currently in residence at the famed university.
It was all because of a promised free meal.
But alas, the students were deeply disappointed when the free meal was served in the middle of Robredo’s lecture on Democracy and Disinformation. It consisted of soup, salad and sandwich.
Some of the students interviewed by The Adobo Chronicles said they had expected to be served with lugaw (rice porridge) that the former VP was famous for back in the Philippines.
One of the students said, “I’ve never had lugaw all my life so I was looking forward to having it for the first time, only to be served with the usual, boring, American fast-food meal.”
