Malacañang Declares May 18 A Non-Working Holiday

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – It is no secret that Filipinos are avid fans of the Miss Universe Beauty Pageant and that they take the performance of their representative very seriously. Especially owners and workers of salons and beauty parlors, many of whom are members of the LGBT community.

Miss Universe is the LGBT community’s “Super Bowl.”

As we already know, the Philippines’ representative to the international pageant didn’t win nor made it to the top 10, to the dismay of the country’s entire population, especially the salon and parlor workers.

So, in recognition of the big disappointment of the salon and parlor workers, the palace declared May 18 a non-working holiday throughout the country to give them the chance to grieve and to pick themselves up from their frustration.

So if you have scheduled a salon and parlor appointment for May 18, you are advised to call to re-schedule.

SAN JOSE, California (The Adobo Chronicles, San Jose Bureau) – Move over FaceApp. Make way for Facebook’s gender identity online tool!

Netizens have been amused by FaceApp’s newest tool that can transform photos of males into photos of females. That’s now passé.

Here’s how it works:

1. Log on to your Facebook account.

2. Click on “status.”

3. Type in “hashtag pride “ (#pride).

4. Click on “post.”

5. Check your post. If what you typed in appears in rainbow colors, you’re LGBT. If the characters are in black, you’re hopelessly straight!
