NEW YORK, New York(The Adobo Chronicles, New York Bureau) – Leni Robredo had high hopes that when she entered the stadium to witness the graduation of her daughter Jillian from New York University, she would receive a standing ovation. After all, she is the Vice President of the Republic of the Philippines.
She had also hoped that guest speaker American singer Taylor Swift would mention her in her speech and acknowledge her presence.
Alas, none of that happened.
Worse, at the conclusion of her commencement address, Swift flashed not the ”L” sign but the ”V” sign, indicating her support of Robredo’s opponent in the 2022 Philippine presidential election, Bongbong Marcos.
Indeed, it was a missed opportunity for what could have been another great photo for Robredo and her three daughters who are all girls.
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – A DQ case ordered by presumptive President Bongbong Marcos was inadvertently delivered to the Supreme Court on Padre Faura in Manila.
The case, consisting of assorted packs of DQ cookies, chocolate bars and ice cream, was sent to the high court offices instead of to Marcos’ residence.
The DQ goods were supposed to be enjoyed by the household staff of the Marcoses in celebration of Vinny’s (Bongbong’s son) birthday last May 17.
It wasn’t clear what the high court plans to do about the mis-delivered goods, especially as the Marcos family is currently in Melbourne, Australia celebrating Vinny’s birthday and taking a respite from the hectic electoral campaign over the last six months.
