Mark Twain Inspires New Single About Filipino Senior Citizens

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Famous American writer/novelist Mark Twain once said: “Don’t complain about growing old. It is a privilege denied to many.”

This quote has inspired a new song single, premiering September 30, 2022, about the challenges and joy of being a senior citizen.

Composed by Pikes Espinosa Salvador, and sung by our own publisher Rene Astudillo, the song is part parody and part tribute to the Filipino elderly.

It is available for streaming on Apple Music, Spotify and Deezer. The music and lyric videos are also available on YouTube.

The Adobo Chronicles is happy to share the music video with our readers and followers:

Senator Imee Marcos Proposes Total Amnesia For All, Leftists And Rightists Alike!

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – It was a grand reunion for key players of Martial Law and the Marcos, Sr. years.

Present at a press conference held on the 50th anniversary of Martial Law were Senator Imee Marcos, Juan Ponce Enrile, Gringo Honasan and former CCP-NPA leaders who have since returned to the fold of the law.

At the presscon, the former CCP-NPA leaders Ka Peter and Ka Eric apologized to Imee and family.

In return, the eldest daughter of the late President Marcos said she is in favor of total amnesia for all — regardless of ideology.

“We should forget what happened in the past (hence the amnesia), and focus on unity and nation-building.

The Adobo Chronicles reached out to the #NeverAgain proponents for comment, but we have not received any response as of press time.

In Protest, Twitterer Raissa Robles Changes Profile Photo

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Self-proclaimed investigative writer Raissa Robles is putting her face where her mouth is.

In a recent tweet, she complained about President Bongbong Marcos “going around maskless as if there is no more pandemic.” Marcos recently signed an executive order making the wearing of face masks voluntary in some public places.

In protest, and to stand by her tweet, Robles changed her profile photo, covering her entire face with a surgical face mask.

A true patriot, this Robles.

Some netizens commented that they hope Robles’ new profile photo becomes permanent.
