MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Superstar Nora Aunor is back on top of the music charts, thanks to Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Guillermo Eleazar.
More specifically, Aunor’s recording of “Tiny Bubbles” shot up to No. 1 in just the last couple of days. It came after Eleazar announced that Metro Manila will be placed in tiny bubbles as part of the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) imposed beginning August 6.
“Tiny Bubbles” also became the most searched phrase on Google.

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – When you post an offensive comment, photo or video on your social media account, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram can take it down after it’s mass reported by netizens who don’t like you or what you posted.
But for Kakie Pangilinan, daughter of Megastar Sharon Cuneta and Senator Kiko Pangilinan, she is asking YouTube to take down her own video!
The video in question is her live recording of the song “TYL” on the Wish 107.5 Bus. Of the almost half a million views it got so far, an overwhelming number — 77,000 vs. 5,000 gave her performance a thumbs down.(UPDATE: the thumbs down has exceeded 100, 000)
In talking to The Adobo Chronicles, Kakie said this could potentially ruin her bright singing career so she wants nothing of this sort on her profile. She’d rather banish this video into oblivion.
No comment from either YouTube or Wish 107.5 so far.
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque is bent on pursuing his first love: singing.
It is no secret that the former Congressman has a deep passion for belting out OPMs — Original Pilipino Music, as evidenced when he was caught on video singing karaoke, sans face mask, at a Baguio restaurant-bistro.
Now, Roque has officially launched his singing career with the release of an RTVM music video featuring the Spox and others singing a popular Filipino Christmas song. As can be seen on the video, Roque takes singing very seriously, with gusto feeling.
There is a lot of speculation that Roque will soon give up his Malacañang duties to go for the showbiz spotlight. After all, he already has name recognition.
