It’s difficult to know precisely what was behind China’s decision to institute an East China Sea Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) at the weekend.

The Filipino Congressman, long considered a national hero, vowed to visit the devastating wreckage in the hard-hit city of Tacloban and outer regions. Typhoon survivors in the Philippines watched, while many Filipino workers in Hong Kong traveled to nearby Macau to cheer on Pacquiao as he returned to the ring.

“It would have felt like another storm has hit if he lost,” said street sweeper Ardel Nebasa.
