MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The ongoing workers’ strike at NutriAsia in Marilao, Bulacan province is having serious, unintended consequences. The workers are protesting against the company’s practice of contractualization.
Restaurants and carinderias nationwide are reporting a shortage of the Filipino food classics lechon and adobo.
They could not cook or serve lechon without Mang Tomas sauce, or adobo without Silver Swan soy sauce and Datu Puti vinegar — all of which are branded products of NutriAsia.
But the strike has not affected the operations of The Adobo Chronicles. We will continue to bring you up-to-date, unbelievable and deliciously-cooked news, including the latest on the NutriAsia strike.
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – How Senator Trillanes wished that his embarrassing interview with Stephen Sackur of BBC News were rehearsed before the live broadcast. But no such luck.
It’s a different scenario altogether in his press conferences with local Mainstream News Media. He gets to do a “Take 2,” with media folks even advising him to do it with “feeling.”
Do we see a lawsuit by Trillanes against the media person that leaked this video?
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Who can forget that grammatical error-ridden Press ID issued by the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO). Or Asec Mocha Uson moving Mayon Volcano to Naga. Or revising world geography be creating a new country, Norwegia?
Honest mistakes, some say, but when it becomes a pattern, then that’s a different story altogether.
In a post about the passing of former National Security Adviser Jose Rolio Golez, PCCO mistakenly identified him as Rogelio Golez. Other Mainstream News outlets also committed the same error, and we wonder if they were basing their reports on the PCOO post.
At least, PCOO posted the correct photo of Golez, and not one of this openly-gay Filipino champion boxer Roilo Golez.
