MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte is known to be very accommodating, even to his harshest critics. He holds no grudge against them and that’s why he had appointed VP Leni Robredo from the opposition party to a Cabinet position as Housing Czar.
Now, Duterte has announced that performance artist and tour guide Carlos Celdran will join his trusted staff in Malacañang.
Celdran is openly critical of Duterte and his administration and is closely associated with the Yellow Party. The latest rumor about Celdran was that he was spreading “news” that the president was in a coma, after he disappeared from public view for a few days beginning last June 12, Philippine Independence Day.
Celdran has been appointed as Malacañang tour guide, with a Cabinet rank.
“With his knowledge about history, politics and Philippine culture, he is the best person to be appointed to this critical position,” the Malacañang announcement said.

NAGA CITY, Philippines (Exclusive to The Adobo Chronicles) – The Office of the Vice President (OVP) has confirmed that Leni Robredo will be the keynote speaker at this year’s Garlic Festival in Gilroy, California.
The Gilroy Garlic Festival is the biggest such event in the world during which garlic farmers and entrepreneurs showcase the versatility of this popular agricultural produce.
This year’s event will also feature musical entertainment, rides, food fares and a garlic conference.
The organizing committee of the conference said that they have invited Robredo to talk about her experiences with regards to the use of garlic in warding off aswangs, tikbalangs and witches in her home province of Camarines Sur.
Camarines Sur is believed to be the aswang capital of the Philippines 🇵🇭.
Aswangs are nocturnal half-human, half-winged blood-sucking witches that prey on people, especially children. They are known to be repelled by the smell of garlic.
