Balloon Sales Now Banned In The Philippines!

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – President Bongbong Marcos has just signed a new Executive Order banning the sale of balloons throughout the entire Philippines.

The move was prompted by the recent discovery of a Chinese spy balloon in the skies of Western United States.

In a statement, Malacañang said that the ban is aimed at protecting the Philippines’ security and sovereignty.

“We will not allow any country — friend or foe – to spy on us,” President Bongbong Marcos reportedly said.

Move Over, Adobo And Sinigang, Here Are The Worst Of Filipino Foods!

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Even with food, the Philippines is always on the international radar.

We all know that adobo and sinigang have long been recognized among the best cuisines the world over.

But then again, the Philippines also made it to the list of the world’s top worst food, according to TasteAtlas.

Included in the worst list are Naga City’s Kinalas and the Filipino traditional breakfast Hotsilog.

Kinalas is a Filipino dish of noodles, spices, pork or beef brains, and scraped meat from pork or beef head, with the addition of a thick brown sauce made from dried shrimps, vinegar, garlic, shallots, soy sauce, and fish sauce.

Hotsilog is, of course, that plated breakfast of fried rice, egg and hotdog.

Ex-Vice President Leni Robredo, who hails from Naga, is contemplating on lodging a complaint against TasteAtlas for naming her favorite food among the world’s worst.

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Just days after a Chinese spy balloon was discovered over the United States, a similar incident was recorded in the Philippines.

The red balloon was spotted by the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) over Rizal Park (Luneta) in Manila.

Upon being informed of the sighting, jets from the Philippine Air Force were immediately sent to burst the balloon, but it had already disappeared into thin air.

No comment so far from the Chinese Embassy in Manila.
