    Being reelected to the Senate is one reason to be happy. But having someone to share the joy makes it even better. And so it was for Alan Peter Cayetano, as he kisses his wife Lani, who was also reelected mayor of Taguig. Chiz Escudero and the new love of his life, actress Heart Evangelista, were also all smiles after being part of the first six winners proclaimed by the Commission on Elections at the Philippine International Convention Center in Pasay City on Thursday evening.

    A Filipino worker who was attacked with a bat by a group of Taiwanese teenagers amid the furor over the killing of a Taiwanese fisherman by Philippine Coast Guard personnel has said the tension has subsided and that relations between Filipinos and Taiwanese have returned to normal.

    Jose de Leon,  an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) in Taiwan who was ganged up on by the teenagers, said in a radio interview Monday that “everything is back to normal.”

    De Leon also said the incident has nothing to do with the public outrage over the killing of the fisherman.

    “The suspects were just drunk and they have already apologized to me,” said de Leon, who injured his foot because he used it to defend himself from his attackers.

    Manila Economic and Cultural Office (MECO) Chairman Amadeo Perez has said that emotions are running high in Taiwan, and two incidents of assaults against Filipinos had been reported.

    He urged Filipinos in Taiwan to remain indoor and wait until the tension subsides.
