IN THE PHILIPPINES, A ROYAL BABY WATCH BEGINS

Princess KLONDON, England (The Adobo Chronicles) – The pregnant Duchess of Cambridge is now four days past her due date.

Kate Middleton, 33, and husband Prince William were scheduled to welcome the second royal baby on Thursday, April 23, but the day came and went with no sign of another little one. This would be their second child.  Prince George was born on July 22, 2013.

In the Philippines, another royal baby watch has begun.

Actors Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera have both confirmed that they are expecting a child.  Although not exactly royalty, the couple are looked upon as Prince and Princess after their wedding last December was billed as a “Royal Wedding.”

The wedding was the most talked about, expensive and paparazzi-filled event, rivaling that of the British royalty in terms of the wedding gown, bridal car, church ceremony (officiated by eight bishops and seven priests), and life-sized wedding cake, among others.  The Best Man was none other than the president of the Philippines.

Filipino netizens have started to get involved in the baby naming process, suggesting names for the royal child.  An overzealous fan of the couple even created a website that has ‘pictures’ of what the baby boy or baby girl will look like.

Fairy tales do come true in the Philippines.

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles) – He has yet to formally announce his choice for his party’s candidate for the 2016 Philippine presidential elections, but already, President NoyNoy Aquino has ‘annointed’ his 2022 choice for president — Actor Dingdong Dantes.

Dantes, who recently married fellow actor Marian Rivera in what was billed a ‘Royal Wedding,’ is 34 years old and is ineligible to run for president in 2016. The miniimum age to run for president is 40. Aquino was the Best Man during the Dantes-Rivera wedding.

The actor is on the short list of the Liberal Party’s senatorial slate for 2016.

Champion boxer Manny Pacquiao, 36, had previously announced his intention to run for president. Like Dantes, Pacquiao is not qualified to run in 2016 because he is under-age. But the boxer is already an elected congressman, representing his province of Sarangani. He ran under the banner of the Nacionalista Party.

Fast forward to 2022. Dantes vs. Pacquiao for Philippine president.

LOS ANGELES, California ( The Adobo Chronicles) – He did it twice. First at the MTV Music Awards, then at the Grammys Rapper Kanye West took to the stage, unscripted, to grab the limelight from Taylor Swift and Beck, respectively.

The rest is history. West has been banned from attending all televised awards shows  including the Grammys, MTV Music Awards, and even the Oscars, and has been out of a job since.

The Adobo Chronicles caught up with the husband of reality show star Kim Kardashian at the latter’s home, baking some cookies for the night’s dessert.

“This is my new role, a stay-at-home husband since I have not had any performance or recording contracts for months now,” West said. The rap artist was remorseful and apologetic for his shenaningans at the awards shows and says he hates the idea of Kim being the sole breadwinner in their household.
