Surprise Grammy Winner Set To Stage A Free Concert in Manila February 25

img_9170MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The world’s eyes will be focused on Manila on February 25 as the metropolis plays host to a hodge-podge of public events at various venues to celebrate an impromptu world freedom day.

A few hundred people are expected to join in the commemoration of  EDSA, the people’s power revolution that ousted President Ferdinand E. Marcos 31 years ago. The Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines is also sponsoring a “March for Life” somewhere in Luneta Park to encourage Filipino Catholics to make a stand against abortion and the reinstatement of the death penalty. Fans of AlDub will also gather in Quezon City to reclaim what seems to be the sagging popularity of their favorite noontime show love team.  The Mocha Girls may also make the rounds of Metro Manila malls to greet and entertain their fans.

But the biggest buzz thus far is that a internationally-famous Grammy Award-winning singer has agreed to stage a free concert at an undisclosed venue just outside of Metro Manila.  This singer is known to have very close ties to the Philippines and is doing the free concert in celebration of his (or her) Filipino heritage and love for Filipino musical talent.

The musical concert details will be announced on national television and on social media on the eve of February 25.  The free admission will be on a first-come, first-served basis.

So keep your appointment calendar open on February 25 and be on the lookout for this exciting announcement!  It’s the  “Next Big One” you won’t wanna miss!


Donald Trump Issues Executive Order Banning Actors From Impersonating Public Officials

L-R: Baldwin as Trump, McCarthy as Spicer, and Fey as Palin

WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington, D.C.) – You may have seen the last of President Donald Trump, Press Secretary Sean Spicer and Sarah Palin on television — at least on ‘Saturday Night Live’ (SNL). Or Hillary Clinton for that matter.

Today, Trump signed his latest Executive Order, this one banning actors from impersonating public officials and other politicians on TV.

The order came just minutes after the popular TV show aired its latest episode.  It featured a skit mimicking White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer and his outburst during a recent press briefing.  Actress Melissa McCarthy played the role of Spicer.

In recent months, SNL had featured Donald Trump the candidate and the president, impersonated by Alec Baldwin.

In past years, Tina Fey had played the role of then VP candidate and Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.

At least nine different performers have played the role of Hillary Clinton on SNL, including Kate McKinnon.

In explaining the new Executive Order, (the real) Sean Spicer said that the ban had nothing to do with politics or egos.  “Rather,” he said, “the president felt that the actors were doing ‘a terrible job’ mimicking the politicians.”



Donald Trump Calls For Press Conference On The Exact Day And Time As Super Bowl Half-Time Show


WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – It must be related to his insecurity or attention deficit disorder, but President Donald Trump wants to prove to America that he is more popular than Lady Gaga.

Lady Gaga, as we all know, will perform during Sunday’s Super Bowl LI’s half-time show in what is considered the most-watched television spectacle.

Today, The White House announced that Donald Trump will go on live television to make a very important announcement.  The president will go live at exactly the same as the half-time show and has asked all the news and cable networks to cover his annoucement.

Press Secretary Sean Spicer has declined to say what Trump’s announcement will be about, but he assured the American people that it will be much more important and spectacular than Lady Gaga’s performance.
