CAMBRIDGE, MA, U.S.A. (The Adobo Chronicles, Cambridge Bureau) – About a dozen Harvard students flocked to a scheduled lecture by former Philippine Vice President Leni Robredo, one of the Hauser Leaders currently in residence at the famed university.
It was all because of a promised free meal.
But alas, the students were deeply disappointed when the free meal was served in the middle of Robredo’s lecture on Democracy and Disinformation. It consisted of soup, salad and sandwich.
Some of the students interviewed by The Adobo Chronicles said they had expected to be served with lugaw (rice porridge) that the former VP was famous for back in the Philippines.
One of the students said, “I’ve never had lugaw all my life so I was looking forward to having it for the first time, only to be served with the usual, boring, American fast-food meal.”
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – A DQ case ordered by presumptive President Bongbong Marcos was inadvertently delivered to the Supreme Court on Padre Faura in Manila.
The case, consisting of assorted packs of DQ cookies, chocolate bars and ice cream, was sent to the high court offices instead of to Marcos’ residence.
The DQ goods were supposed to be enjoyed by the household staff of the Marcoses in celebration of Vinny’s (Bongbong’s son) birthday last May 17.
It wasn’t clear what the high court plans to do about the mis-delivered goods, especially as the Marcos family is currently in Melbourne, Australia celebrating Vinny’s birthday and taking a respite from the hectic electoral campaign over the last six months.
