Malacañang To Metro Manila Commuters: Try Riding Tricycles Instead

imageMANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Following massive, persistent problems being encountered by the Metro Rail Transit (MRT), Malacañang on Thursday urged Metro Manila commuters to try other modes of transportation — like tricycles.

“Yung MRT lang ba ang puwedeng sakyan doon sa mga rutang dinadaanan nito? Baka naman puwedeng matuklasan yung iba pang mga options,” Presidential Communications Operations Office head Herminio Coloma Jr. said during a press briefing. (Is the MRT the only means of transportation to your destination? Perhaps you can try to discover other options.)

The Aquino administration specifically encouraged commuters to try riding tricycles which abound in Metro Manila.  “These motorized pedicabs have been a very reliable mode of transportation in the Philippines for generations,” Coloma said.

No more long lines.  No more waiting. No more delays. No more accidents.

CEBU CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – A Filipino broadcast journalist was ordered deported from his native country after being proclaimed “persona non grata” by the Philippines’ Bureau of Immigration (BOI).

The deportation order came just hours after the conclusion of the second Philippine presidential debate held in Cebu City last night.

Teddy Locsin, Jr.  used social media to criticize the debate, particularly candidates Senator Grace Poe and former Interior Secretary Mar Roxas.

Locsin said that the exchange between the two candidates was  “lousy” because they used “too much” Tagalog, even referring to the language as “inappropriate” for a debate.

Locsin said, “The sagutan between Poe and Mar is lousy because they used too much Tagalog, a language inappropriate to pointed debate, circular shi***.”

President Noynoy Aquino who always delivers his speeches in Tagalog, signed the deportation order.

English is the Philippines’ second language used by the country’s major newspapers and many news broadcasts including CNN Philippines.

 

Westboro Baptist Church Will Picket Pacquiao-Bradley Fight In Las Vegas April 9

LAS VEGAS, Nevada (The Adobo Chornicles, San Francisco Bureau) – When Manny Pacquiao meets Timothy Bradley, Jr. for the third time on April 9 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, he will be met by a picket line by the homophobic hate group Westboro Baptist Church (WBC).

WBC is known for its rhetoric against homosexuals and has staged pickets at many high-profile events, including funerals, espousing its belief that “God hates fags.”

So, why are the WBC members picketing Pacquiao when he is on their side?

Just recently Pacquiao compared homosexuals to animals, claiming that human beings are worse than animals for engaging in same-sex behavior.

It appears that WBC is picketing for a different reason.  The church believes that the sport of boxing is “barbaric” and “animalistic” and goes against the teachings of God.

So, there.  Pacquiao will finally meet his match.  Not Bradley. WBC.
