Jayza Baylon- hi becky! u know y asians do a lot of peace signs in pictures? here's the history according to my sister's japanese friend.. it all started with the japanese. they asked little kids to pose like that in pictures to promote world peace. everybody thinks it cute at the same time meaningful..so kids, teens and even adults pose like that..soon more neighboring countries like korea and taiwan follow..until it spread like swine flu all over asia esp in PI cuz of koreanovelas and chinovela invasions..lol! *kawaii* (^^,)v (i hope it answers kiko's question) happy new year to both of u. mwah!
