DIASPORA: Enrique Iglesias - Heartbeat ft. Nicole Scherzinger

Again, the link was sent by Rose of Denver. Enrique, as everybody knows, is a Filipino-Spanish mestizo. Nicole is Filipino Hawaian-Russian mestiza, her family name is Valiente & her father came from Samar/Leyte. There is a coincidence, I don't know if there is any relation to her story: When the Communists in China took over, the 50,000 strong White Russian population who escaped the Bolshevik takeover of Russia & sought refuge in China, were transported to the Philippines, with temporary holding in an island off Guiuan, Eastern Samar (Calicoan?). From that batch came the famous Pinoy comedy team Wing Duo, one of whom is Russian-Filipino. Many have filtered to other islands in the Visayas and I was introduced to a boy in Bacolod years ago but he came from somewhere in the south of Negros (Slavetsky was the family name if I'm not mistaken).
