MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The news media have been focusing on China’s supposed threat to go to war with the Philippines should the latter pursue its claim over disputed territory in the South China Sea.

By sheer number, the Philippines is no match to China’s military power.  China has seven times the number of Filipino military personnel, not to mention the Chinese great advantage in as far as equipment like tanks, fighter aircraft, warships and submarines are concerned.

But Filipinos have an advantage over China 🇨🇳 when it comes to keyboard warriors.

IMG_1544It is estimated that almost half of the Philippine population is on Facebook, not to mention other social media accounts.

Here’s how Filipinos can avert a possible war with China:

  • Each of the 50 million or so Filipino Facebook account holders should send a minimum of 26 friend requests to the Chinese.  That would amount to a total of 1.3 Billion (the estimated population of China) Chinese friends.
  • If China decides to go to war with the Philippines, no Chinese would support it, not even its military since they all would have Facebook friends in the Philippines 🇵🇭.

Problem solved.

Long live the Filipino keyboard 🎹  warriors! Long live world peace!

QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Hold the presses on impeachment!  Vice President Leni Robredo has just announced that she is stepping down in order to spend more quantity time with her daughters.

The shocking announcement came just hours after Robredo concluded the first episode of her new weekly radio 📻  program which aired Sunday, Mother’s Day.

During the radio show, Robredo had this advice to Filipino working mothers:

Nothing will ever take the place of the time you spend with your children. Some working mothers I know would say that giving their children quality time is okay. But I tell them, no. Quality time is not okay. It should be quantity time, which means parents should spend all the time they could with their children.”

Many working mothers, grandmothers and single parents took to social media to denounce Robredo’s statement and were planning to organize a “Million Mom March Vs. Robredo” at the Luneta sometime next week.

To prove that she was sincere in her advice to mothers, and to avert any civil unrest as a result of her comments, Robredo said she has decided to immediately step down from her position.

The 1987 Philippine Constitution gives the incumbent President the power to choose who will replace the Vice President.  Who will it be ?
