MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Self-proclaimed investigative journalist and frustrated book author Raissa Robles is embarking on a totally different career.
Realizing she has now become irrelevant in journalism and literature — what with the landslide victory of her most dreaded politician, a Marcos — she announced she is trying her hand at weather forecasting.
In her initial attempt to take on the new role, Robles tweeted about the significance of the weather in Manila coinciding with the inauguration of Vice President-elect Sara Duterte in Davao City which had some gorgeous weather today.
But as they say, the weather man (or woman) is not always right.
INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION (The Adobo Chronicles, Miami Bureau) – The camp of Vice President and presidential aspirant Leni Robredo may have pink-colored drone shots and aerial photos of their concerts to show for huge crowds, but nothing beats the telescopic photo of the recent BBM-Sara UniTeam grand rally in Cavite.
This photo was beamed to earth by the International Space Station showing the huge crowd that attended the UniTeam’s rally in General Trias City in the vote-rich province of Cavite. It is the penultimate crowd shot never before seen anywhere in the world!
GENERAL TRIAS CITY, Cavite (The Adobo Chronicles, Cavite Bureau) – The city government of General Trias in Cavite province has levied a P10 Million fine on the Leni Robredo campaign to pay for the cleanup of last week’s rally.
The crowd which the campaign claims to have reached 47,000 left piles and piles of trash and pink confetti, not to mention blown-up pink balloons which many say were meant to project the appearance of a large attendance at the rally.
General Trias city hall officials decried the irresponsibility of the campaign and attendees in leaving litter and toxic materials after the rally ended.
The P10 Million includes environmental charges resulting from blown-up pieces of pink balloons used at the political event.
The officials say what transpired is in direct contrast to Robredo’s campaign promise to protect the environment and reduce pollution in urban cities and other areas in the country.
