Website updates!

Thank you thank you to all you worldwide supporters who have been checking out this page daily! And I mean WORLDWIDE! Our statistics show that though the majority of this website’s readership are from the Asian region (of course!), it has been incredibly gratifying to see PLENTY of readers from the US and other western regions. No doubt that’s also because some very proud Asians live on every inch of this planet and every once in awhile of every single day, there is that yearning to want to find out what’s going back in our homelands. Welcome back any time any day!
