I have noticed this too. I have s friend who look so Chinese but she's always saying her grand father was Spanish. I also had a suitor before who was really Chinese ( has a Chinese surname, went to Chinese school and family has a business downtown with all the Chinese stores ) and also claiming that he has some Spanish blood. My sisters say the same thing about their Chinese friends. I have not really noticed Malay looking Filipinos doing this but noticed it from Chinese Filipinos. Funny, because there's no trace of Spanish ancestry in them but they keep on talking about it.

Aren't you guys tired talking about this topic. we keep repeating the same discussion all the time.
These are the main racial that exist before and these people's descended already mix so to make sure of their genes ask them to take DNA test lol




Peninsulares – The highest level of the racial hierarchy in Philippines is composed by Peninsulares class. These were the person of pure Spanish descent born in Spain. These people possessed maximum command and influence over the Philippine.
Americano – Persons of pure Spanish descent living in the Philippines who were born in Spanish America were classified as ‘Americano’. This was the second highest level of the hierarchy.
Filipino / Insulares – The next rank in the Philippines racial hierarchy is the Filipino. Basically, the Philippine-born children of ‘Americano’ were classified as ‘Filipinos’.
Tornatras – These were the persons of mixed indigenous Spanish ancestry (referred to as Filipino or Peninsular), Chinese (referred to as Sangley), and Malay (referred to as Indio). Most people of the Tornatras caste in the Philippines used Spanish as their primary language and in many cases converted to the Catholic faith.
Mestizos de Espanola – The next in the hierarchy is the class Mestizos de Espanola, subordinate to the Tornatras. This term was used to describe people of mixed Filipino and foreign ancestry.
Sangley – This is a level used in hierarchy to demonstrate the persons of pure Chinese ancestry, while Mestizos de Sangley was used to refer to a person of mixed Chinese and indigenous ancestry
Indio – Indio was the term that was used to refer the native Malays, but if we consider the legal classification, this term was only used to refer the Christianized Malays who lived in closeness to the Spanish colonies. This was the second lowest rank in the hierarchy.
Negrito – The lowest level in the Philippines racial hierarchy was of the Negritos. This group represented the black Negro people who possessed minimal or zero rights and worked as labors in the Spanish colonial system.

I know but we don't know also what if it's true lol so it's really hard to say no or yes. but of course if they don't look like it and doesn't have any traces of course we automatically say no I guess he or she have to show all the proof lol DNA Test, Photos of his/her ancestors hahaha until his/her generation photo (for those who have great-great-grandparents)

But if they say that their grandfather as in recent is spanish and it's obviously don't look like it then that person give wrong information lol

Well I think if there is really no Spanish trace, better not talk about it any more.

Not everyone Smtchll... Not everyone like Korean and Chinese beauties. Kim Chui may have many fans but not everyone who looks like her will be as lucky as her. She just got very lucky.
