Full Filipino means that all of your grandparents are from the Philippines. That's what I meant. She has Spanish ancestry, but it's not recent. It's centuries old. Whether they have ancestry from somewhere else, they're still full Filipino. Filipinos have always been a mixture of Negrito, Taiwanese Aborigine, Chinese, Indian, Japanese, Spanish, Mexican, etc etc. If you want to be techinal about it, the only full Filipinos are Negritos



But I think the definition I'm using is more practical. Some other posters like to post half Filipinos and say that they're technically Filipinos. No, if you have a parent who isn't from the Philippines, you're not full Filipino, regardless of how Filipino you may feel.

Ok. I didn't know the distinction you were using, which is filipino nationality, not ethnicity.

I'm not using nationality as a distinction because there are half Filipinos who are Filipino citizens. Anyone with 1 Filipino parent can easily become a citizen. Filipino nationality is the distinction that Pinai and Hermosa use when they say someone is "full Filipino"

I'm not using ethnicity as a distinction either because there's not 1 Filipino ethnicity. Negritos are the original Filipinos but not the only Filipinos. When I say "full Filipino" I mean that none of their recent ancestry is from outside of the Philippines.

Sorry, I just want to know what we're supposed to be jealous of according to Peter Colyer. There are Filipino celebrities who can attain the ideal Korean look, like her



but then there are others who look completely different. It's a mixed bag. No reason to envy Korean celebs.

You sound truly desperate trying to make Korean women look small and Filipinas big. If Korean women are really that bad and Filipinas that great, people will all acknowledge that in time even if you do not try that hard. You are trying so hard that I cannot read your comments without tears out of sympathy.

Koreans rank "the highest for plastic surgery"? The highest in the world? The highest in Asia? You really don't have to make up a story to convince others. If you really believe in something, respect and trust other people's intelligence and let them come to the knowledge in due course.

I didn't make it up, just google it yourself. This is well-known

Here's one link, but I'm sure you can find many more

Daily chart: Plastic makes perfect | The Economist

and another just specific to Asia

http://www.asianplasticsurgeryguide....hest.html#data

And I'm trying to make Filipinos look "big" Yeah, you're right, Filipino women are bigger. There's more fat people in the Philippines than in Korea, that's for sure.

You don't know about how common plastic surgery in Korea is ? Many say it is almost like shopping.

Exactly...sounds to me like some people here have an inferiority complex.
