MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The entire country had been holding its breath after Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte publicly admitted that his recent endoscopy and colonoscopy may have revealed something — perhaps, a “growth.” Duterte had said that if it’s cancer, he’ll let the Filipino people know.
As anyone can imagine, Duterte’s critics and members of the diminishing Opposition could only be elated at the news. This, they thought, could only be their only chance of getting back in power by Leni Robredo succeeding Duterte in the event that he gets incapacitated.
Well, today, Duterte critics got the shock of their lives after the President’s medical team revealed the rest results of his medical tests.
Indeed, there was not one “growth” but two, found in the President’s colon and esophagus.
These were Davao durian seeds, which the President had previously accidentally swallowed. Doctors immediately removed the growths.
All’s well that ends well. Except for the Opposition.
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Nuns at St. Scholastica’s are known for egging their students to walk out of their classes to protest against the Duterte administration and other issues of national concern.
They did it again to protest what they called a “Duterte Dictatorship.”
But this time, the nuns were caught off-guard when some students instead carried placards announcing that they were vaccinated with Dengvaxia, the controversial Dengue vaccine that has caused the deaths of almost 100 students to date.
Rumors have it that the school, particulary the Marikina campus, offered Dengvaxia to its students at an exhorbitant price.
When the Dengvaxia controversy surfaced, the school tried to do a cover up, even taking down the Internet page that announced its Dengue vaccination program for its students. But what’s on the Internet stays on the Internet, so archives of the school’s Dengvaxia announcement has resurfaced.
Shall we expect a press conference soon from St. Scho?
