Atty. Vince Tañada’s Second Job As Milk Endorser

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – It is a known fact that Atty. Vince Tañada’s films are not doing well at the box office, especially compared to Daryl Yap’s “Maid in Malacañang.” So it is no surprise that he has taken on a second job like many enterprising Pinoys.

Tañada is now a celebrity endorser for Promil and Nido milk, although it is unknown how much he is paid for this new gig.

Along the way, Tañada has taken jabs at another celebrity endorser, the more successful and extremely popular Toni Gonzaga who has endorsed a rival milk product, Lactum.

Bottomline is, it is really up to parents and pediatricians to choose or recommend what’s best for the kids. So this may be the only and last paid commercial endorsement for Tañada.

Retired Comelec Commissioner Mocks PWDs!

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – She claims to be an advocate for Persons With Disabilities (PWDs), complete with a giant billboard proclaiming her support for a PWD party-list in the coming Philippine elections. Yet retired Commission on Elections (Comelec) Commissioner Rowena Guanzon is all but promoting a mockery of handicapped people.

In a post on her Twitter account, Guanzon is asking her followers to post selfies mimicking facial paralysis (“ngiwi” in Tagalog) and to use the hasghtags #ngiwisquad and #ngiwichallenge.

THE FACTS: Many people suffer from facial paralysis, a disability. Such paralysis could be caused by stroke, Bell’s palsy, trauma, tumors, viruses and Lyme Disease.

Is Guanzon going to publicly apologize to the very people she’s advocating for?

Comelec Commissioner Rowena Guanzon Tests Positive For Zoomicron

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Commission on Elections (Comelec) Commissioner Rowena Guanzon tweeted that she had a fever, just hours after she presided over a preliminary hearing on two disqualification petitions filed against former Senator and presidential aspirant Bongbong Marcos.

This prompted the feisty Commissioner (a.k.a. shunga) to submit to a Covid-19 RT-PCR test.

The test came back positive!

Comelec Spokesperson James Jimenez told The Adobo Chronicles that Guanzon may have been exposed to the zoomicron virus after she had a fit when Marcos failed to appear — not even by zoom — at Friday’s hearing.

Guanzon demanded that Marcos’ counsel produce a medical certificate to justify the former Senators’ no-show.

It wasn’t clear whether Guanzon will be able to resume the disqualification hearing on Monday due to her condition. She will then have to produce a medical certificate if the hearing must be postponed.

What goes around comes around. Even zoomicron.
