My goodness! Enough already of this nonsense. With millions of Filipinos overseas, it's not like people outside the Philippines have never seen Filipinos that we have to resort to all these photo posting nonsense.

I could care less if the people from Antique or the entire island of Panay do in fact have lighter skin than the other Filipinos. I haven't noticed it, but so what if it is true? I don't care if it's because the Spanish priests there raped all the women in the island, there were more Chinese admixture there, or they're all descendants of Datu Puti from Borneo who probably had fairer skin based on his name. It really doesn't matter.

ejay1 and clarah211 probably should just post their own photos here. We can recommend what type of cosmetic surgery both of you can undergo so you will never be mistaken for Manileño or Vietnamese respectively.

It is considered an insult to be mistaken for a Vietnamese or Filipino.

My friend once introduced me to her American born Vietnamese friend. When I first met her I knew immediately she wasn't Korean, Chinese, or Japanese. It turns out she was Vietnamese. I can tell, just like with Filipinos, if someone is South East "Asian." They have a very distinct Negrito/mixed Negrito look to them.

Care to explain your definition of native Filipinos? The negritos? The Tagalogs? The Visayans? The Bajaus? The Tausugs? The Marawis?

And you seem to know Philippines - since you've mentioned about Subic Bay and places like that (which rarely gets mentioned by non-Filipinos, not even me) - is it by any chance that you are a Filipino yourself, who happens to live in America?

Henry Sy moved to PH when he was 11 years old. Does that mean he's Filipino???

If I move to France does that mean I'm white all of a sudden?

There are white and black people living in Hong Kong - are they now CHINESE???

You have serious issues.

I don't think it's an insult to say one looks like Angela Phuong Trinh, in fact, I prefer how she looks compared to the celebrities from mainland China.

The question is Henry Sy MIGHT be a descendant of a Mestizo de Sangley, He wasn't born in the Philippines
but there might be a chance that he is a descendant.

Just like Jesus Tambunting

You may not, but I know many others who do find it insulting. Anyways, I prefer how East Asian celebs look. I do not like the prehistoric look that many Vietnamese women have.
