DAVAO CITY,  Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Burea – President Rodrigo Duterte said he wants to “close” popular beach island Boracay if its environmental problems are not resolved in 6 months.

“I will close Boracay. Boracay is a cesspool,” Duterte said on Friday night, February 9, during the Manila Times Business Forum in Davao City.

Duterte said the sewerage problem in the top tourist destination is wreaking havoc on the island’s ecosystem.

But when asked by The Adobo Chronicles why he was so concerned about the deterioration of Boracay, he said that he wants to build a Malacañang for the Visayas in this prime tourist destination.

Eventually, we will have a presidential palace in each of the three islands – Luzon (Manila), Mindanao (Davao) and the Visayas (Boracay).

’Whenever we have visiting heads of state or foreign dignitaries, we will bring them directly to the Malacañang of the Visayas to spare them from the traffic nightmare and pollution  in Manila,’ Duterte said.

’And what better way to host our foreign guests than in one of the most beautiful beaches in the world,’ he added.



Donald Trump To Seven Words: You’re Fired!


WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – The Washington Post is reporting that the Trump administration has banned officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention from using these seven words in budget documents 

  • evidence-based
  • science-based
  • vulnerable
  • entitlement
  • diversity
  • transgender
  • fetus

So, before Trump permanently says “You’re fired!” to these seven words, The Adobo Chronicles would like to use all of them in one sentence.  Perhaps for the last time:

In an apparent move to discredit evidence-based and science-based informaton, U.S. Donald Trump showed off his Presidential entitlement by admonishing vulnerable health officials to refrain from supporting diversity that could endanger the transgender fetus.

Total Solar Eclipse As Seen In Baguio City, Philippines

BAGUIO CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Baguio Bureau) – It was an experience of a lifetime for many in the United States — a total solar eclipse seen from sea to shining sea.

But this rare phenomenon was also seen in Baguio City, the Philippines’ summer capital.  It shocked even the country’s scientists and weather experts as it was totally unexpected.

Just when the final moments of the eclipse came to an end in America, Baguio residents woke up this morning to this fantastic view of the moon casting its shadow over the sun.


It’s truly sunny side up!
