MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Both the Department of National Defense and the Philippine National Police have opposed the lifting of “no tattoo” rule for potential recruits.
“Any good reason why we will lift it? We would like to keep it that way…The military imposes strict rules on haircut and even mustache, why not tattoo? Tattoos are ugly and connotes gangster image,” Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana said Monday.
Upon hearing of Lorenzana’s comments, Presidential daughter Sara Duterte, speaking from China; and Whang-0d, the last remaining mambabatok (tattoo artist), speaking from Sagada both said:
”Do I look like a ganster?”
LEGAZPI CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson has no qualms about returns. When controversy erupted over her award from the University of Santo Tomas Alumni Association, she gladly returned it.
Shortly thereafter, Uson was again the subject of ridilcule when she stated that Mayon Volcano was located in Naga City, Camarines Sur.
So, to silence her critics, she organized a team of her avid supporters to return Mayon Volcano to its rightful place — in Albay. And the volunteers did it Bayanihan style!
