Quezon City Going For Guinness Record With Zumbang Gabi!

QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – Quezon City has tried but failed in the past to make the Guinness World Record for the largest open-air zumba event ever, and it is not giving up.

Today, the Quezon City government announced that it will try again for the record, but with a twist.

The Adobo Chronicles has learned that a zumba event is in the works that will try to gather one million participants. The current record is held by the Provincial Government of Camarines Sur, at 13, 350 participants.

To achieve its goal, Quezon City will hold the event in the evening, starting at 9 pm when the usually hot weather cools down.

The event is named “Zumbang Gabi” (Night Zumba)!

Watch for further announcements. Be a part of history!

Senator Robin Padilla Wants To Scrap EDSA Anniversaries!

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Year after year, attendance at the commemoration of the 1986 EDSA People Power Revolution has been dwindling, more so this year with another Marcos seated in Malacañang.

Reacting to the dismal show of force at EDSA today, the 37th anniversary of the ousting of President Ferdinand E. Marcos, top-notcher Senator Robin Padilla filed a bill to scrap the EDSA Revolution commemorations altogether.

“It’s a waste of time, resources, of media coverage and social media commentary,” Padilla said.

Well, 37 years is a long time. EDSA 1986 has had its time. Enough!

Raissa Robles Releases New Book Cover On Marcoses!

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Just days after her one and only book, ”Marcos Martial Law: Never Again” became irrelevant after Bongbong Marcos won the May 9, 2022 Philippine presidential elections, self-proclaimed investigative journalist Raissa Robles released a new cover.

The new cover features a caricature of the Marcos family in Malacañang, a film graphic from Director Darryl Yap’s ”Maid in Malacañang.” The film tells of the last days of the Marcoses prior to being ousted through the People Power Revolution — from the point of view of the Malacañang household staff.

Only the cover and title have changed (“Again”) , a desperate strategy by Robles to sell the remaining unsold, dusty copies of her book.

It’s the proverbial ”Don’t judge a book by its cover,” or shall we say ”A wolf in sheep’s clothing.”

Congratulations, Raissa Robles!
