Leni Robredo Proposes Total Overhaul Of Philippine Classrooms!

QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – Vice President Leni Robredo has put forward an ambitious proposal to totally overhaul Philippine classrooms across the country.

Emphasizing that the Philippines is often visited by typhoons and monsoon rains which cause flooding, Robredo said all classrooms must have a second floor. This, she said, will enable students to move up to a higher and safer place in case of flooding.

The Vice President said that in addition, she’d like all schools and classrooms to be constructed not using cement, but indigenous nipa shingles and bamboo poles. This, she said, will prevent harm and possible fatality to kids in case there is an earthquake.

So much for “duck, cover and hold!”

Malacañang Declares May 18 A Non-Working Holiday

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – It is no secret that Filipinos are avid fans of the Miss Universe Beauty Pageant and that they take the performance of their representative very seriously. Especially owners and workers of salons and beauty parlors, many of whom are members of the LGBT community.

Miss Universe is the LGBT community’s “Super Bowl.”

As we already know, the Philippines’ representative to the international pageant didn’t win nor made it to the top 10, to the dismay of the country’s entire population, especially the salon and parlor workers.

So, in recognition of the big disappointment of the salon and parlor workers, the palace declared May 18 a non-working holiday throughout the country to give them the chance to grieve and to pick themselves up from their frustration.

So if you have scheduled a salon and parlor appointment for May 18, you are advised to call to re-schedule.
