BATAC, Ilocos Norte (The Adobo Chronicles, Vigan Bureau) – Many have protested the burial of Ferdinand E. Marcos in the Libingan Ng Mga Bayani, but it is not only the late president’s critics and opponents who have done so.  Even Marcos’ loyal followers in the Ilocos have joined in the protests.

Now, many Ilocanos, especially the tourism officials in the province of Ilocos Norte want Marcos’ body back in Batac, where it has been kept in a refrigerated crypt for more than two decades.

Since President Duterte allowed Marcos’ burial at Libingan ng mga Bayani in Fort Bonifacio in Taguig City in November last year, tourism arrivals dropped significantly, especially right after the family closed the mausoleum, said Marc Anthony Baldoz, curator of the Marcos museum in Batac.

Only 32,903 visitors were recorded by the Marcos center from January to May this year, compared with the 131,168 visitors it drew for the same period last year, according to the Ilocos Norte tourism office.

So, take heed Marcos’ critics, you have a friend in the Ilocanos!

Marcos.

Robredo was asked to share her thoughts and experiences regarding the 1986 EDSA People Power Revolution that toppled the regime of Marcos, forcing him out of the country to an exile in Hawaii.

In her lecture, Robredo said of the People Power Revolution:

Duterte, Aquino Endorse Senatorial Candidates For 2019

FA49961C-AF58-4D58-B00D-9DFDD5D47390.jpegMANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The 2019 Philippine senatorial election is just around the corner, and potential candidates are busy seeking presidential endorsements.

It goes without saying that Kris Aquino has the endorsement of her brother, former President NoyNoy Aquino.

Without asking for it, singer and actress Sharon Cuneta got the endorsement of her life from no less than President Rodrigo Duterte, something that her husband, Opposition Senator Kiko Pangilinan is not happy about.

Well, deal with it, Senator Pangilinan.

Wow. Thank you very much, Mr. President, Sir, my “Tatay Digong”!!! All politics aside and with all due respect to my husband who so understands my “wala akong pakialam sa politika” stand, I got this precious gift of a message (taken a few evenings ago) from President Rodrigo Duterte himself!!! You may not know this but Davao City Mayor Sarah and I have been friends since 2012. We never cared about each other’s politics, though I adore her as much as she, a “Sharonian” as the President himself once said, must adore me too. I am blessed that she and I are sincere and thoughtful enough to separate politics from what after all is more lasting – our friendship. Now I have this message to treasure forever! ALL POLITICS ASIDE, Excuse me po, pero si Pangulong Duterte po ito! So sorry am not sorry but in fact, am thrilled! Maraming salamat po, Mr. President. Ang yabang ko po ngayon dahil dito! And one day, I shall sing your favorite “IKAW” for you! God bless you po. May our Father in heaven guide you and lead you only to what will make our country great. (Thank you Kiko for your understanding and respect for me as your very apolitical/unpolitical wife.) Posting with permission. ( Kuya Chet, I know you’re happy but inggit ka no?!!! Hahaha!)
