What The Philippines Won From Its Arbitration Case Against China

6DED005E-CD1A-4FE3-A88E-EC40AD929C49.jpegMANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Thanks to the efforts of ex-President Noynoy Aquino and his earstwhile very competent Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert Del Rosario, the Philippines scored a major victory over the disputed territory in the West Philippine Sea.

In its arbitration case filed with the United Nations, the Philippines laid claim to Pag-asa Island.

Alas, as it turns out, the disputed territory is not an island, but a rock.

All that for nothing.

Well, perhaps Aquino and cohorts can instead lay claim to Dwayne Johnson, The Rock! He may not be Filipino but at least he is of Pacific Island heritage (Samoan).


Filipinos From Pampanga Town Automatically Denied U.S. Visas

AC’s Pol Pinoy enroute to Mexico

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – It is no secret that U.S. President Donald Trump has a beef with Mexicans, evident not only by his passion to build a border wall, but also with his policy of denying U.S. travel visas for Mexican nationals.

Alas, a computer glitch at the U.S. Embassy in Manila now automatically denies visa applications from Filipinos who hail from or reside in Mexico, a town in the Philippine province of Pampanga.

It is already difficult for most Filipinos to obtain a visa to visit America, but having one’s address or hometown listed as Mexico, Pampanga makes it almost impossible to get one.

The U.S. Embassy in Manila is still trying to correct the glitch that automatically deletes all visa applications bearing the key word “Mexico.”
