Senator Risa Hontiveros Supports President Marcos’ Plan To Purchase Philippines’ First Submarine!

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Is political unity finally coming to the Philippines?

In an unprecedented show of unity, Opposition Senator Risa Hontiveros has thrown her full support for the plan of President Bongbong Marcos to acquire the first ever submarine for the Philippines.

“This is one initiative that I and the Yellowtards can rally behind. It sets political color aside for the good of the country’s security and sovereignty,” Hontiveros said.

However, The Adobo Chronicles has learned that Hontiveros may have misread Mr. Marcos’ proposal. She thought the President was planning to acquire a yellow submarine.

In The Philippines, Carabaos, Senators Kneel! (Video)

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Every year, on a day in the month of May, the town of Pulilan, Bulacan in the Phlippines, celerates the Kneeling Carabao Festival, during which carabaos are paraded in the streets and made to kneel in front of the church. It is definitely a sight to behold.

But it is not only carabaos that kneel in the Philippines. Even senators do.

Case in point: Senator Bato de la Rosa knelt in front of witness cops, begging them tell the truth during a Senate hearing.

It’s not power-tripping,” the senator said.

Did he just trip off his chair then?
