Well the Chinese genes in Filipinos could be explained with its stronger ties with China (long historical trading partner), of course Filipinos are NOT East Asians if that is what you think that you were refering me to say. Filipinos are Austronesian and didn't look Chinese, but the archipelago have rich history that makes its population richly diverse that makes certain sect of its population share minor feature with east Asian. Similar to the way Indonesians are rich in varieties of mixes and people of various background.

But then the Mentawai Austronesian at its closest purest form do have small eyes too.. :P so it is quiet questionable.

Filipinos in general is not composed of Chinese genes only, we have different ancestors that came from different parts of the world.
