QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – History was made this weekend when Miss Venezuela made it to the top 13 finalists in the 2021 Binibining Pilipinas Pageant held at the Araneta Coliseum.

DASOL, Pangasinan, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Dagupan City Bureau) – Blogger Francis Baraan IV has appealed to his followers to help him look for a Botox doctor. In a recent tweet, the son of the former Department of Justice Undersecretary who has been linked to alleged illegal drug trade, said:
Almost instantly, several botox doctors responded with proposals on what they can do to fulfill Baraan’s quest for a makeover, along with computer-generated photos of what he will look like after botox treatment. Now it’s up to Baraan to decide which look he would like.
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Former Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach was starting to get hate mail because News TV5 posted a quote card linking her to a comment suggesting that Vice President Leni Robredo be crowned Miss Universe. Robredo issued a statement about her idea of what makes a strong woman. Many supporters of President Rodrigo Duterte were not happy with that comment.
But then, TV5 issued an erratum, saying that the quote should have been attributed to Bianco Guidotti, another former beauty queen.
But it was too late. Wurtzbach said the damage has been done. So she is suing TV5 for libel.
Moral of the story: fact check, fact check, fact check.
