Koreans weren't born with access to black hair products. They sell what the people in those areas want and need. They also have dry cleaners and convenience stores in poor areas. They could choose to do that in wealthy areas because wealthy areas need those things too. I'm just making the point that foreign business people can and do go to poor areas. It's not different in the Philippines.

oh great the girl you met is another Hermosa.....fake spanish and chinese heritage
I don't have Chinese heritage. And why do you say I am fake when you have not actually seen me ? Stop assuming when you do not know me at all.

Iloilo has Chinese population. They own most of the stores in Calle Real .

Iloilo has 3 Chinese schools that starts from Kindergarten up to High School.

most modern day mongoloid type filipinos came from elsewhere....if you start calling them chinese...then what about ilocanos...they would be taiwanese....

these people did not come from China just 1,000 years ago. Stop putting all your faith in a wikipedia article. If they recently came from China, then their language would be related to at least one language on the Mainland, but no, it's related to Filipino languages.

Kinaraya-------Tagalog------- Ilocano
Isara----------Isa------------Maysa
Darwa---------Dalawa---------Dua
Tatlo----------Tatlo-----------Tallo
Apat-----------Apat-----------Uppat
Lima-----------Lima-----------Lima
Anem-----------Anim----------Innem
Pito-------------Pito-----------Pito
Walo------------Walo---------Walo
Siyam-----------Siyam--------Siam
Pulu------------Sampuh-------Sangapulo

So it was totally a coincidence that these settlers came from China, but they happen to have a very similar language to the Filipinos who were already there. These people remained isolated and didn't have contact with Tagalog, so how can they possible have that many words in common?

they might just as well be taiwanese...who knows? did i say that anybody that looks east asian are chinese? they may have chinese blood but did i call them chinese? who knows if they have korean or japanese blood in them.

you still havent clarified your "logic" though about people from south china not being chinese. should we just call them southese?

your going up against genetics and scientific study....did you miss the part where it said Austronesian speaking....even though they were from southern china they still spoke a austronesian language which would be in the same family as all the other austronesian languages

of course if they wanted to make fake ivory they would go all the way to Philippines to trade with negritos...wasting so much money to make an expedition when they could do the same thing using cow bones.....you once again show us how smart you are

oh of course! they probably didnt expect the kind of people they were gonna encounter, so they did the best they could to still make money. again, chinese business shrewdness.

and if you're that knowledgeable, do your research on your people's ancestry, EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THEM, before you even make another delusional reply
