They say 25% of Filipinos are Chinese mestizos. That's a lot of people. And besides, the upper classes in the Philippines usually have more Chinese ancestry. You dont see poor street Filipinos on Facebook. The 70% of the population that doesn't have Facebook probably doesnt look as East Asian as the 30% thats on facebook

That's true, seems like the situation is similar with Indonesia. None of these people had Chinese surnames, by the way.

There are 3 types of surname. The straight Chinese surnames, like Lim, Tan, Chiu, etc. They're likely the more recent arrivals, but not always.

The Filipinized Chinese surnames like Pempengco, Cojuangco, Tiangco basically anything with -co at the end of it. These families have been in the Philippines longer but it seems like most people with these surnames still look Chinese.

And then there are the regular Spanish names. Some Chinese immigrants changed their names entirely.

Anyways, there are Chinese mestizos who don't look Chinese or have Chinese names. The President of the Philippines Beningno Aquino is part Chinese. Maybe he could pass in China, I dunno. You tell me...

He could pass as Southern Chinese. A lot of Southern Chinese don't have so-called 'chinky' eyes, indeed some of them themselves could pass for Austronesian.

It is. My sister is often mistaken for Filipino or even Hawaiian. There are many actual Austronesians who look more typically Chinese than her.

Yeah in the cities and larger towns where there is internet access. Thats why 70% of the population aren't inernet users. Philippines Internet and Telecommunications Reports If you account for the population over 15, then that's about half. So half of the people aren't on Facebook, and which half is on facebook? all the poor folks? Yeah right
