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.
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Starbucks Philippines is not taking the 7-Eleven SpeakCup poll just sitting down. It has launched its own cup poll today.
While the 7-ELEVEN poll includes all the top presidential candidates, Starbucks has decided to limit its cup survey to the top two second placers in the presidential race. That would be Vice President Leni Robredo and Manila Mayor Isko Moreno.
Starbucks said points will be awarded to customers’ favorite candidate based on the size of drink they order. Tall drinks will earn 1 point for the candidate of choice, 2 points for grande and 3 points for venti.
