KRIS AQUINO ADMITS TO A BROKEN HEART, BUT THE REASON IS NOT WHAT MOST PEOPLE THINK

imageQuezon City, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles) – Philippine TV host and presidential sister Kris Aquino has publicly admitted she still has a broken heart. This, according to an Instagram message she sent to her fans as she took a day off from work yesterday.

Netizens immediately connected Kris’ broken heart to fellow movie actor and Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista. It will be recalled that a few months back, Kris was romantically linked with Bautista. Their relationship was cut short with the mayor saying he would want to prioritize his children first.

However, sources close to Aquino told The Adobo Chronicles that Bautista has nothing to do with Kris’ broken heart. The TV host is devastated because the movie The Amazing Spiderman 2 was a huge box office success in the Philippines.

During a Singapore interview many weeks ago with Spiderman lead actor Andrew Garfield, Aquino boasted that no film – local or foreign – will ever surpass the opening-day box office success of My Little Bossings, a slapstick Filipino movie that starred Aquino’s son, Bimby.  As it turned out, Spiderman broke all box office records in the Philippines, grossing over 100 Million pesos in just its first two days of screenings.

“I am so embarrassed and devasted. My heart is broken. I should have just kept my big mouth shut,” Aquino was heard saying as she packed her bag and left work to take a day off.

She also took a break from her Instagram account.

MANNY PACQUIAO CONFLICTED ABOUT HIS FUTURE

imageSarangani, Philippines – Manny Pacquiao: world champion boxer, Philippine Congressman, Karaoke King, millionaire. He’s got it all, you’d think. But what lies ahead in his future?

In an exclusive interview with The Adobo Chronicles, “Pacman” reveals the great dilemma he is facing regarding what’s next after he leaves the boxing ring. He has already made known his intention to run for president of the Philippines in 2016, but he seems to be having a change of heart.

His new movie, featuring himself and narrated by Liam Neeson, is set to be released this spring and Pacquiao seems to have found his new love – Hollywood. He makes no secret about his ambition to be in the company of Oscar Award nominees, or better still, winners.

His advisers, though, are saying that there is no reason for Pacquiao to be conflicted, even if he becomes an Oscar award-winning actor. After all, in the Philippines, it is not uncommon for movie actors to be elected mayors, governors, congressmen, senators, even president.

Tampa, Florida – The nation continues to be shocked at the  death of a man who was shot by a retired police officer for texting inside a local movie theater. Reports say the man was texting to check on his young daughter.

Responding to the outrage over the unfortunate incident, AMC, the largest movie theater chain in the country, announced that beginning next month, it will impose a total ban on smart phones in screenings at all its theaters.

A spokesperson said that AMC is now in the process of installing mini-lockers at the entrances to its screening rooms and will require all movie patrons to deposit their smart phones under lock and key.  Anyone who refuses to deposit his or her smart phone will be denied entry into the theater.

As a result of this new policy, AMC will increase its movie ticket prices by a dollar to cover the cost of installing the lockers and employing additional security guards who will be frisking all movie patrons.

The spokesperson added that patrons who refuse to temporarily surrender their smart phones will not receive any refund for tickets purchased.  Rather, they will receive a $10 gift certificate from Netflix.

Reacting to the AMC announcement, an overjoyed movie patron exclaimed: “That’s great! Now there will be no need to show those annoying film clips during previews reminding the audience to silence their cell phones or refrain from texting during the movie.”
