Well as you know Filipinos before has Spanish Mestizo to Chinese Mestizo to Tornatras meaning All of the above. She may probably has both Spanish and Chinese Ancestry.

Most Filipinos are of a hybrid stock, so it is almost impossible to find a pure blooded race nowadays. Even a very Filipino-looking person may have some Spanish or Chinese blood somewhere in his family tree.

Example:

2 ladies in the photo are both Filipino Mestizo of Spanish descent but look at their eyes

This is a good point. I have a half-Japanese, half-English friend who in some ways looks more Asian than many full Japanese. You can barely tell he's mixed, and he has very small, almost slit-like eyes. While some Japanese people can almost pass for Europeans.

I was shocked to read there were only 20,000 negritos in the Philippines!

They are minority. But some of them do mix with the population but a lot doesn't. That's why you'll still see a pure indigenous. I think they want to preserve their race too, I read that some of them chose to go to isolated areas.

Yes, negritos are holding on throughout SE Asia. In Malaysia you have the 'orang asli', we were supposed to visit one of their villages in Royal Belum Nature Reserve but we didn't have time. Some of the people in the nearby town, however, definitely did look part or even full negrito. Darker skin than Malays, tightly coiled hair.

Manilenos seem to be mostly negrito admixed as well
