Happy Snowday! We hope everyone is staying warm and safe. Here are two interesting pieces of news (or balita in tagalog) regarding The Philippines and Asia. Enjoy!
Celebrity News: Miss Universe Returns to Philippines

On Sunday, Miss Universe - Pia Wurtzbach - returned home to The Philippines. Read the article to see what she did and how she is regarded by the Filipino community.
History in the Making: Japan's Emperor Set to Make Historic Philippine Visit
Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko are due to visit the Philippines. It has been 60 years since The Philippines and Japan have reestablished diplomatic relations. However, such cruelties of the past are not forgotten nor forgiven. Read the article to learn about the impact that this visit has on Japanese-Filipino history.
