In One Tweet, Jim Paredes Exposes The Truth Behind The Yellow Party

IMG_2442SYDNEY, Australia (The Adobo Chronicles, Honolulu Bureau) – Retired Filipino-Australian entertainer Jim Paredes, one of the staunchest supporters of former President NoyNoy Aquino and the Liberal Party, just exposed the real agenda of the Yellowtards (as they are called.) In one tweet.

Paredes, who has been very vocal about the Philippines’ political atmosphere, and critical of President Rodrigo Duterte, must have been drunk or high on some crystallized substance when he hit the send button from his Twitter account. (He probably thought he was just sending it to his Yellow colleagues.)

His Twitter message says everything about what he and the Yellowtards are fighting for:


Ironically, Paredes’ tweet was retweeted by yet another member of the Yellow socmed army, Leah Navarro.

Do they have their act together?  It looks not.




Senator Hontiveros Bats For Unlimited (UNLI) Rice

IMG_2386.PNGCAGAYAN DE ORO, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Davao Bureau) – Opposition Senator Risa Hontiveros is headed for a direct confrontation with fellow lawmaker  Cynthia Villar.

Villar recently proposed that Philippine restaurants stop the practice of serving UNLI (unlimited) rice as part of their menu in order for the country to achieve self-sufficiency.

On Wednesday, Hontiveros said:  “Ang masasabi ko lang ay mayroong unli-rice pero walang unli-Martial Law (What I can say is that there can be unli-rice but there can’t be unlimited martial law).” The senator made the comment at a forum at the Xavier University Little Theater attended by a mixed audience composed of the academic community and internally displaced persons (IDPs).

Reached by The Adobo Chronicles, Villar said that Hontiveros cannot contradict herself. “She cannot favor unli-rice but oppose UNLI-Martial Law. It should be one for all and all for one.” she said.

So Madam Hontiveros, make up your mind. If no unli-Martial Law, there should also be no UNLI-rice!

Philippine Government Cracks Down On Fake Rice

IMG_2360QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – Filipino consumers have been very worried about rumors of fake rice being sold in the market. The fake rice reportedly consists of plastic and other synthetic materials.

The National Food Authority (NFA) has sent investigative teams to public markets across the country to make sure that rice retailers are not selling fake rice.

Today, the NFA issued a public service announcement — in partnership with The Adobo Chronicles — that would help consumers in detecting fake rice being sold in the market.
