NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles, New York Bureau ) – In order to impress, some people dress up — others dress down. Reality star Kim Kardasian-West chooses to do the latter.
West has been criticized for launching a new line pf shapewear which she is calling kimono.
Kimono is of course the Japanese attire associated with royalty, respect, dignity and cultural tradition, and it is universally recognized as a Japanese symbol, almost like the country’s flag.
It is therefore not surprising that West’scattempt to trademark her kimono has been met with fierce opposition on either side of the Pacific Ocean.
As a protester aptly declared: Kim has undressed the kimono!
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – In an almost surreal twist of fate, Senator Imee Marcos ended up inheriting the former Senate office of Antonio Trillanes.
Marcos announced she was going to ask her Igorot friends to peform a ritual to “bless” the office and to rid the space of evil spirits.
The Adobo Chronicles has learned that Marcos found some interesting items in Trillanes’ office as her staff started to clean, disinfect and redecorate what would be her office office for her first Senatorial term and beyond.
Among the items found were:
- A tennis racket
- A used toothbrush and a hair comb
- A pink necktie
- A pair of red designer high heels
- A black cocktail dress
- A blonde-colored wig
- A Victoria’s Secret loungerie
- Makeup products by MAC
- Nail polish
- Military uniform
- Leather whip inherited from former Comelec Chair Andy Bautista
- A photo of former Congressman Gary Alejano
LONDON, United Kingdom (The Adobo Chronicles, Paris Bureau) – When in Rome, do as the Romans do. When in Great Britain, wear a tuxedo as the British do, especially when you’re visiting the Queen.
Most everyone has now seen a photo of US President Donald Trump wearing a tux to Buckingham Palace. It was hard to figure out whether he was wearing an oversized vest or an undersized coattail, but his wardrobe malfunction has not escaped the discerning eye of the world’s fashion police,
So, The Adobo Chronicles asked Henry Golding, star of ”Crazy Rich Asians,” who by the way is half-British, to model for us and show Trump how to wear (or not to wear) a tux.
