Philippine Businesses Report Short Supply Of Rubber Bands

2CEC3EE0-F87C-438E-A59F-0CF8C26CDB20.jpegMANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – School and office supply stores in the Philippines are reporting a short supply of the old, reliable rubber band.  And it happened in just the last 24 hours.

An investigation conducted by The Adobo Chronicles points to something that happened at the Senate yesterday, when Special Assistant to the President Bong Go testified in the inquiry of the Navy Frigate deal.

Go was accused by the news media of intervening in the purchase of the warships.

But it was not Go’s eloquent testimony that caught the attention of Filipino netizens.  It was his fashion sense.  He wore several rubber bands on his wrist.

Reportedly a millionaire, Go chose the cheap bands over gold bracelets during his Senate appearance.

Since then, fans of Go as well as the fashionistas started flocking to stores to get their supply of rubber bands.

Shall we call this the People’s fashion?


Plastic Surgeon Vicki Belo Will Make Public Names Of All Her Clients


MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Client records are always confidential, but plastic-surgeon-to-the-stars Dr. Vicki Belo promised to make public the names of all her clients who have undergone artificial physical transformation.

Belo made this announcement in protest against the new TRAIN (Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion) law which institutes changes in income tax.

The lady doctor said TRAIN will kill the country’s cosmetics and aesthetics industry, including medical tourism.

Belo said her extensive client list includes not just people in the entertainment sector but also politicians and their immediate family.

She says she is releasing her client list to show the expansive negative impact TRAIN would have not only on her business but on people’s basic human right to be more beautiful.

Kris Aquino To Sue Raissa Robles Over Tweet on Bloody Red Gown

0C82EC68-E888-4E05-BB6F-812F15F11EB5MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Blogger Raissa Robles took to Twitter to criticize Isabelle Duterte’s red gown which the latter wore at a photo shoot in Malacañang.

But something went terribly wrong.

Robles  posted a different photo in her tweet which quoted an Alex Carlos Stan saying that the red gown represented “thousands of dead Filipinos.”

Instead of attaching a photo of the 17-year-old Duterte, Robles uploaded a photo of Kris Aquino in — yep — a bloody red gown.

Was Robles subconsciously thinking about ex-President NoyNoy Aquino in the Mamasapano massacre or the potentially adverse (and deadly)  effects of the Dengvaxia vaccination program which he authorized?

But regardless, Kris is suing Robles for equating  her red gown with bloody massacres.
