Harvard Students Disappointed At Leni Robredo Lecture Free Meal

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.”

Marcos DQ Case Inadvertently Delivered To Supreme Court!

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.

In A Bongbong Marcos Presidency, Bagnet To Replace Adobo As Filipino National Dish!

BATAC, Ilocos Norte (The Adobo Chronicles, Batac Bureau) – Move over, Adobo. Under a Bongbong Marcos presidency, bagnet will replace adobo as the Philippines’ national dish.

The crispy, double-fried Ilocano pork delicacy is not just Marcos’ favorite dish, but also his running mate Sara Duterte’s.

The editorial board of The Adobo Chronicles has been having meetings to decide if it would move to change its name to Bagnet Chronicles, effective June 30, 2022.
