A lot of Singaporeans could pass for Viet. Actually I was with one of my Vietnamese friends in Singapore and they asked her if she was a local because her English isn't very good.

seriously, the girls you post are not typical Filipinas. They could pass as other things and look more like those other things. but when you see this girl, Filipina is the first thing you guess. I think the girl on the left is a bit more ambiguous though

I think Filipina is the first thing people think when they see here. The women you post look more typical of Micronesian or Polynesia, and the women Ejay posts look more typical of China, Korea, or Vietnam
This is a typical Filipina

Only in that her natural skin color shows because Pinays in the US dont mind getting dark, while Pinays in the Philippines avoid it at all costs. So yes, the girl is darker than most Pinays in the Philippines (at least in that video), but her facial features aren't different.
