LOS ANGELES, California (The Adobo Chronicles, Los Angeles Bureau) – Philippine Vice President Leni Robredo refuses to just sit around waiting for something to happen to the president. She’s been jetsetting.
But who knew Robredo was an accomplished soprano?
On June 17, 2017, the VP will be the guest performer during the Filipino American Symphony Orhestra (FASO)’s gala event to be held at the Edwin & Lani Raquel Residence (formerly the Mary Pickford Estate) in Los Angeles.
FASO is the only Filipino symphony orchestra outside of the Philippines.
Dubbed “A Night of Symphony,” the event will be highlighted by the debut performance of a new, comissioned work, “Sa Dulo Ng Laylayan,” to be sung by Robredo.
The Adobo Chronicles has just learned that the event is sold out, and that the only tickets available are those from scalpels, if one can locate them.
Do we hear a “Bravo?”
NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles, New York Bureau) – Remember that New York Times editorial asking the world to condemn Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte?
Of course we all know that the basis of the editorial was a complaint filed before the International Criminal Court (ICC) by a fame-hugging Filipino lawyer who represents a perjured witness. It all boils down to NYT’s assertion — based on news reports it mimics– that Duterte is a “killer.”
Well, NYT went a step further.
In a recent headline, the Pulitzer Prize-winning publication accused the entire country of being a killer! Just like its president.
It’s all in the headline…
(Oh, in case you haven’t noticed, the news report was about the Philippine House of Representatives. Yet NYT chose to use an accompanying photo featuring some woman. No, the woman was not a killer).
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – WannaCry virus is a ransomware program targeting Microsoft Windows that has recently infected over 230,000 computers in 99 countries, demanding ransom payments in bitcoin in 28 languages.
If you live in the Philippines, here’s how you can protect your computers from the data-damaging virus:
- Do not open emails from Leni Robredo, Jim Paredes, Cynthia Patag, Raissa Robles, Maria Ressa, Atty. Jesus Falcis or Agot Isidro.
- Refrain from getting your online news from ABS-CBN, Inquirer or Rappler, TIME, or New York Times.
- Be cautious when clicking on links from Winnie Monsod , Chito Gascon or Georgina Hernandez.
- If you see phrases on your emails or social media accounts such as ‘UN Rapporteur,’ ‘frailties of a woman,’ or ‘na ano lang,’ delete them right away. They contain the dreaded virus.
- Be very afraid when a yellow flip flop icon appears on your Facebook, Twitter or Instagram accounts. Your computer has been compromised. See an IT immediately.
- Always stick to Adobo Chronicles, PCOO, Manila Times except the column of Kit Tatad, and the pro-Duterte Trollerati for up-to-date, unbiased and accurate news and information.
