Manny Pacquiao Responds To Criticism Regarding Eating With His Hands

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – It was apparently an attempt to portray potential Presidential candidate Manny Pacquiao as an ordinary citizen, eating with his hands just like many Filipinos do. But the PR stunt backfired, with netizens making fun of the way he did it — practically sucking his fingers as he gobbled his chicken and rice..

Today, the Boxer-Senator responded to the criticism, saying he was eating a side dish of snails — known in the Filipino dialect as kuhol, suso or bisukol — which requires the eater to suck the meat out of the shell, as can be seen in the controversial photo.

This should end all memes and negative comments against Pacquiao.

All’s well that ends well.

Baguio City Now Trending, Thanks To Paolo Contis!

BAGUIO CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Baguio City Bureau) – The summer capital of the Philippines is now trending on social media, thanks to actor Paolo Contis.

Soon after Contis admitted that he had asked actress Yen Santos to join him for a day in Baguio ”as a friend,” the memes quoting him have gone viral. Many believe this incident caused the split between Contis and partner LJ Reyes.

In response to the popularity of the Conti memes, the Baguio City Council approved a resolution making Conti an adopted son of Baguio for his contribution in promoting the city as a tourist destination. Mayor Benjie Magalong is expected to sign the resolution.

All well that ends well.
