I was thinking the same thing.

Just walking around Macau, I can see many Filipinas, and they are of a completely different world than the mainland Chinese who are in Macau.

All those smiles and such, alone. That's Filipino. It's not that common that you see southern Chinese walking around smiling and singing and doing what Filipinos usually do.

Those people are from the Visayas. Some people there look East Asian.
Like in this video from Samar in the Visayas, maybe 4 or 5 could blend-in in China, but the others couldn't. What do you think?

his mom...



Maxene favors her
well its not suprising for Francis M since his mom came from northern luzon(pampanga) and his dad is from visayas(negros occidental) areas of the Philippines where the east asian phenotype is not uncommon

His dad doesnt look East Asian at all, only his mom



He looks like a Malay Filipino, with maybe some Spanish mixed in. Most of the celebrities back then had Spanish admixture

his mom is why he kinda looks East Asian (but not really) because she looks East Asian. His Malay-looking, Visayan dad has little to do with that.

anyways, what did you think of this video?

I think it shows the diversity of the Visayas, just like the rest of the Philippines.

Many Malays in Singapore and Malaysia also look kind of East Asian, dunno if it's mixture or some are naturally like this like the Javanese. You can't always tell apart Malays and Chinese.

that is just 1 example

there are some psuedo-EA looking visayans who have both parents looking malay

eh that video just shows the diversity within whatever region that is...you would have a different diversity in manila though
