Philippine shares  .PSI  closed 0.9 percent lower in thin trade, with Manila Electric  MER.PS  being the worst performer with a decline of 2.8 percent. SM Investments  SM.PS  fell 1.9 percent.
Malaysian stocks  .KLSE  finished the session down 0.7 percent, even after data showed exports surged 17.9 percent in January and beat expectations of an 11.4 percent rise.
Shares of aluminium trader Press Metal Aluminium Holdings  PMET.KL  were the biggest drag with a plunge of 9.1 percent.
Indonesia stocks  .JKSE  fell to their lowest close in three weeks, while Thai shares  .SETI  declined for the fourth
