NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles, New York Bureau) – Realizing that being a guest lecturer at Harvard University is not going to bring much income to sustain her new lifestyle as a private citizen, ex-Philippine Vice President signed up for a modeling contract with a leading New York clothing line.
In this photo, Robredo dons a Burberry Cotton Gabardine which has a price tag of $1,918 (tax not included). That amounts to P112,697.84,, more than six times the average monthly salary of Filipinos.
So much for Angat Buhay, Robrerdo’s pet project to uplift the living conditions of her countrymen.
NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles, New York Bureau) – The annual Met Gala, held at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, is known as “fashion’s biggest night out” with celebrities in attendance wearing their most elegant or outrageous gowns and attires.
But the Met Gala as we know it is coming to an end.
From New York to the Philippines!
Incoming First Lady Emeritus Imelda Romualdez Marcos (mother of Philippine President-elect Bongbong Marcos) has announced plans to to buy the rights to the Met Gala.
Under the plan, the world-famous gala will be moved from the city that never sleeps to the city with flying jeepneys.
Leave it to Filipino ingenuity to create Guinness-worthy world records, not to mention the high fashion sense of Filipino designers, to transform the Met Gala into a universal spectacle never before seen.
The venue of the proposed Philippine Gala will be at the revived/renovated Manila Metropolitan Theater, more popularly known as The Met.
International celebrities, fashion gurus and enthusiasts and lovers of exquisite design and fashion, gird your loins!
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Vice President and presidential aspirant Leni Robredo has responded to criticism that she has again changed color. The VP has been accused of abandoning yellow for pink to distance herself from the loser Aquinos and their cronies.
During a televised presidential forum sponsored by the waning Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP), Robredo was seen wearing a peach-colored dress, prompting netizens to speculate that she was again trying to reinvent herself and her politics.
Robredo spokesperson Barry Gutierrez, in a message to The Adobo Chronicles, categorically denied all speculation.
“The dress worn by the Vice President was originally pink. Unfortunately, her kasambahay (domestic help) accidentally washed the dress using bleach that wasn’t color safe,” he said.
“We were running late for the televised forum so Robredo didn’t have time to change to another (pink) wardrobe,” Gutierrez added.
