MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Maine Mendoza’s new lipstick line by MAC is off to a great start, receiving early endorsements from top Yellow bloggers Jover Laurio, Raïssa Robles and Maria Ressa.
Mendoza — of the ALDUB team fame — launched her pink lipstick shade yesterday amid much anticipation by the Disentes and ‘Who’s Who’ in Philippine fashion and beauty.
Speaking to The Adobo Chronicles, the blogger trio said they would have preferred a yellow shade but the Mendoza pink line better fits their natural complexion.
WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – Donald Trump can’t distance himself from beauty pageants. We thought he was done with them after he sold his Miss Universe Organization.
But he’s back! The Adobo Chronicles has learned that Trump has bought the Miss America Pageant, only so he could close it down permanently.
Trump’s move was prompted by the recent edition of Miss America where contestant after contestant publicly ridiculed him. It was the only way he knew of getting back with the critical and outspoken ladies.
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Filipinos take their beauty pageants very seriously. And so does Philippine Senator Risa Hontiveros.
Today, Hontiveros filed a bill that would declare as special non-working holidays several important dates in the last quarter of 2018 and early 2019. These include scheduled dates for Miss Universe, Miss World, Miss International, Miss Earth, Miss Supranatural, Miss Grand International, Miss Intercontinental and Miss Globe.

Make your plans early to avoid scheduling conflicts, and send a note of thanks to Senator Hontiveros for her genuine concern for the passion of the Filipinos.
