MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau)- Detained Philippine Senator Leila de Lima has retracted a congratulatory message she sent to U.S. President-elect Joe Biden. Her letter called Biden “a beacon for our own democracy” while comparing Donald Trump to Rodrigo Duterte.

Sources close to the Senator have confirmed that she is writing a letter to President Trump instead.

The Adobo Chronicles obtained a leaked copy of de Lima’s new letter which reads, in part:

“I am extremely shocked and saddened that the recent Presidential election was stolen from you, but I am confident that you will remain a powerful force in American and world politics, just like Rodrigo Duterte will remain a powerful force in Philippine and Asian region politics, unfortunately.”

She ends her letter with:

“Please keep me in mind as you continue with your Presidential pardons in the remaining weeks of your lame duck Presidency.”


QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – It was supposed to be a night of celebration by the one big family Robredo, but the joy of having a new doctor in Tricia turned sour. Thanks to the wrong balloons.

The second family of all girls was celebrating Tricia’s passing of the Physician Licensure Exam by holding up huge balloons that was supposed to spell OVP ( Office of the Vice President) for that proverbial photo op. Alas, they held up balloons that spelled “OBF.”

Some netizen fans of mom Leni Robredo justified the photo posted on the VP’s Facebook page by interpreting the letters to mean “Office of tbe Bise Fresident,” but that was pushing it a bit too far.

Regardless, we wish to congratulate Tricia for a job well done! That was one big fight!

ELECTION PROTEST: Philippine supreme court declares leni robredo whiner!

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The electoral protest filed by Bongbong Marcos against Leni Robredo in connection with the 2016 Vice Presidential elections has remained in limbo for several years now.

Today, the Supreme Court of the Philippines, acting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET) has finally declared Robredo the whiner in the contest.

Despite the matter considered sub judice, where parties in a case pending in court are prohibited from publicly discussing related issues, the Robredo camp has been vocal in criticizing Marcos for his persistent attempts to assert his legal rights.

As a matter of fact, the Robredo camp just this week called Marcos a “spoiled brat” for once again pushing a Supreme Court (SC) justice to inhibit from the electoral protest he filed against Robredo.

In an en banc resolution, the PET admonished Robredo to stop whining and let the case proceed accordingly.
