MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles) – Presidential candidate Mar Roxas on Tuesday raised the possibility that the “laglag bala scheme” at Manila’s Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) may be part of a “demolition job” against the government, coming just days leading to the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Leaders Summit in Metro Manila.

The former Interior Secretary’s words, somehow,  were very similar to what singer and Yellowtard Cynthia Patag said the day before on her Instagram account. Or shall we say exactly the same.

Patag was not happy that Roxas was mimicking her, and is planning to sue the Liberal Party standard bearer for plagiarism.

Roxas countered by saying that Patag didn’t know what she was talking about, labeling the scheme as “dagdag bala”  instead of “laglag bala.”

Here’s Patag’s Instagram post.  We’ll let our readers decide who copied whom:

‘SOUTH PARK’ SUES YELP FOR $20 MILLION

imageSAN FRANCISCO, California (The Adobo Chronicles) – Yelp Inc. has filed a $10 million dollar lawsuit against the creators of South Park, seeking damages caused by the latest episode of the popular television show which lampooned the customer review and local business rating website.

In response, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, creators of the animated series, filed a $20 Million counter lawsuit claiming that by suing South Park, Yelp has caused them irreparable emotional distress and unnecessary creative distraction.

South Park is also asking the court to order Yelp to pay an additional $10 Million for the publicity received by the rating website as a result of the TV episode.

Paul Horner, who is a spokesman for Yelp, promised to contest the counter lawsuit and urged all Yelp users and critics to go online and give South Park a rating of 1/2 star (out of a possible 5).

Both the Internet and Television worlds are closely watching the lawsuit and counter lawsuit, describing them as a classic battle between “Goliath” and “Goliath.”

SPOUSE SHARING APP LAUNCHES IN SAN FRANCISCO

imageSAN FRANCISCO, California (The Adobo Chronicles) – We’re living in the world of the Millennial  generation where economic necessity begets a culture of sharing.

Homeowners share their spare rooms through Airbnb and private car owners share a ride through Uber and Lyft with those who are challenged by mobility — all for a fee, of course.

Economic and social revolution seem to always begin in the most liberal city of America — San Francisco, and the latest experiment, or shall we say, start-up, is no exception.

Today, a new start-up company called SpouseShare broke the champagne bottle and cut the ceremonial ribbon at its headquarters south of Market Street in San Francisco.

It is a new mobile app that connects people who are seeking to share their spouse with a third person, whether in a undocumented domestic relationship or a more formal gay marriage.

The founders of SpouseShare got the idea after encountering a Facebook post in which  three Thai gay men announced their three-some marriage, labeled by The New York Post as a “throuple.”
