History As Chismis (Gossip)

BAGUIO CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Baguio City Bureau) – Actress Ella Cruz, who plays the role of Irene Marcos in the upcoming Darryl Yap film, ”Maid In Malacañang,” has been bashed for her comment that ”history is like chismis (gossip).”

Among her bashers is fellow actress Giselle Tongi who claimed that as an 8-year-old kid, she ”marched to (sic) the streets in 1986.” She questioned why Cruz was dismissing history as ”here (sic) say,”

However a news archive from The Inquirer says Tongi grew up in New York and came to live in the Philippines when she was 15.

In a post on social media, Tongi said Inquirer got its facts wrong — a clear case of history as chismis!

Ella Cruz vindicated!

Raissa Robles Releases New Book Cover On Marcoses!

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Just days after her one and only book, ”Marcos Martial Law: Never Again” became irrelevant after Bongbong Marcos won the May 9, 2022 Philippine presidential elections, self-proclaimed investigative journalist Raissa Robles released a new cover.

The new cover features a caricature of the Marcos family in Malacañang, a film graphic from Director Darryl Yap’s ”Maid in Malacañang.” The film tells of the last days of the Marcoses prior to being ousted through the People Power Revolution — from the point of view of the Malacañang household staff.

Only the cover and title have changed (“Again”) , a desperate strategy by Robles to sell the remaining unsold, dusty copies of her book.

It’s the proverbial ”Don’t judge a book by its cover,” or shall we say ”A wolf in sheep’s clothing.”

Congratulations, Raissa Robles!
