apl.de.ap Shows What Filipinos Are Made Of

NEW CLARK CITY, PHILIPPINES (The Adobo Chronicles, ) – A few Filipinos, mostly associated with the political opposition and yellow cult have been very critical of the Phiippines’ hosting of the 30th South East Asian (SEA) Games this year.

Many have questioned their loyalty and patriotism for choosing to bring up only the negatives about the country’s efforts to put up a good show.

But one Filipino, apl.de.ap of the popular American rap group Black Eyed Peas, is taking the high road.  He makes no secret of his extreme pride  for his Filipinoness and 100% support for the Phiippines’ hosting of the 2019 SEA Games.

Standing before a giant replica of the Game’s logo, the artist proclaimed, “Let’s show them what we’re made of.”

Adding, “We’re definitely not Yellows.”

(And in case you haven’t noticed, there is no yellow color on the logo.)

Point well taken.

Leni: Madam Miriam, sinesante na ako ni Tatay Digong.

Miriam:  Boba, alam ko.  Nasa langit ako.  Nakikita ko lahat ang nangyayari diyan sa lupa.

Leni: Anong masasabi niyo tungkol dito?

Miriam: Eh kung hindi ka ba naman tanga, tinanggap mo ang posisyon kahit alam mong walang tiwala sa iyo si Duterte.

Leni:  I did it for love.  Hindi ba sabi ni Lord, “Love your enemies?”

Miriam:  May pa love-love ka pang  sinasabi diyan. You knew this was coming, didn’t you? (Leni misheard.  She thought Miriam said “he was coming”)

Leni: Bakit niyo naman sinasali sa usapan si Bolet?

Miriam: Huh?

Leni:  Maiba ako, ano ang advice niyo sa susunod kong tututukan?

Miriam:  Lapit na ang SEA Games sa Pilipinas, di ba?

Leni: Ay yes, Madam!  O ano, makikisawsaw ba ako sa kontrobersiya sa P50 milion na cauldron?

Miriam: Tanga, hinde. Di ba mayrong mga atleta na nagrereklamo na kulang daw ang pinapakain sa kanila sa mga hotel nila?

Leni:  OO nga, Ma’am.

Miriam: Puwes, puntahan mo sila at ipagluto mo sila ng lugaw.

Leni: Ay, magandang suggestion yan Madam.  Salamat.  Ang galing galing mo talaga.

Miriam: At ang katangaham mo, may forever.

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The popular U.S. reality show, “Celebrity Apprentice” is set to make its debu in the Philippines next month.  The show, featuring Donald Trump, popularized the phrase, “You’re fired!”

The reality series will be aired locally on ABS-CBN which also faces possible “firing” if its soon-to-expire franchise will not be renewed.
