Presidential Spokesperson Harry roque TO QUIT TO PURSUE RECORDING CAREER?

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque is bent on pursuing his first love: singing.

It is no secret that the former Congressman has a deep passion for belting out OPMs — Original Pilipino Music, as evidenced when he was caught on video singing karaoke, sans face mask, at a Baguio restaurant-bistro.

Now, Roque has officially launched his singing career with the release of an RTVM music video featuring the Spox and others singing a popular Filipino Christmas song. As can be seen on the video, Roque takes singing very seriously, with gusto feeling.

There is a lot of speculation that Roque will soon give up his Malacañang duties to go for the showbiz spotlight. After all, he already has name recognition.


QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – ABS-CBN has announced that despite being off the air on television, it will will continue the production of its new “Darna” series which will be aired on its online portals.

It also said that it has decided that the new series will have a new actress who will play the title role — Vice Ganda.

Move over, Jane de Leon.

ABS-CBN decided it was time that the fictional character be portrayed by a member of the LGBT community, and who could be a better choice than its former Kapamilya star, Vice Ganda?

The defunct network is hoping that the new “Darna” series will help it regain its status as the most-viewed network, despite the non-renewal of its broadcasting franchise.

Best of luck to Vice Ganda and to ABS-CBN!
