No, my cousin are half Minahasans, none of their family member are fair, similar to Sundanese only tiny fraction of them are as fair as the Chinese, and don't you think that Minahasan or Sundanese use skin bleacher too? what's with the obsession of Indonesians having fair skin anyway, why does it matter to you so much.

Sundanese looks Javanese, Filipino does look more East Asian than average Indonesians, they have more historical link with the Chinese and their genes study does show a bit of Chinese.

I'm not obsessed with light skin. I'm not light-skinned too. I also don't think good looks are based on skin tone. I agree Javanese are slightly darker than Dayaks, Sundanese and Minahasans. But when someone thinks Dayaks, Sundanese and Minahasans can have natural light skin but Javanese can't, it sounds stupid to me. And I want to correct this stupid stereotype. Some people are most likely obsessed about other ethnic groups being lighter than Javanese.

If you gather Javanese and Visayans together, it's hard to tell them each other.

"Do Indonesian Look Chinese" why you are stressed, the evidence is true some indonesians also has chinese look , I think you are people from eastern Indonesian or Balinese people who never went to see the face of Indonesian who lives in the western part. you do not realize if you used to go fishing in the thread by posting about Seoharto, Prabowo and etc, it is very painful .. and I always hold on it, you need to know they are Pure Javanese not chinese . and please you read the autobiography of Suharto etc. if you need to go to Istana Negara now.

Evens and Evenks living in cities in the south of Siberia have darker complexions. It has nothing to do with snow or sun exposure. They're naturally darker-toned. I hear Russians commenting on it from time to time, when they see an Evenk.

My point is: Native Indonesians, native Filipinos and native Malaysians only vary a little in terms of phenotypical variation by ethnic groups and regions. I don't think native peoples from Visayas and Manila will get mistaken as Chinese crowds if they come to Indonesia as crowds (not as individual).

Many pretty Sundanese girls I have seen don't look like Chinese, even the light-skinned ones don't look like Chinese to me.

Filipino eyes on average still fall within Mongoloid range.
lol talking about eyes again.... Filipino Eyes has variety of shape of eyes. Other do have monolid eye shapes but others don't have. Most Filipinos do not have a monolid eye shape that usually represents the mongoloid definition and usually East Asians have that or the Mongolians.
