Leni Robredo The Soprano To Grace Night Of Symphony In Los Angeles

IMG_1453LOS 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?”

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Filipino-Australian Jim Paredes, Duterte critic and former member of the music group Apo Hiking Society, is missing!

After that viral video tape showing him berating a group of pro-Duterte youth at the EDSA 31 commeration, he hasn’t been seen around.  There are no indications that he has returned to Australia.

But finally, Paredes has given a clue on his whereabouts.

In a tweet posted several days ago, Paredes said:

But his Twitter message generated more questions than answers.  Both his fans and critics still have no clue where he is.

Speculations range from Paredes having joined the New People’s Army or Abu Sayyaf to being in an anti-Duterte rally where only 40 people were in attendance.  Others are saying that he could be vacationing in Brazil’s Amazon forest, where as a Filipino citizen, he doesn’t need a visa to visit.

Or maybe, he has decided to be a monk?
