I am sure I echo others in saying that for the most part, they are Malay and either mestizo Eurasian or Chinese-Malay.

To make it short, The Filipinos are mostly of Malay stock but some are of Chinese or Spanish ancestry and are living in Asia BUT they are culturally hispanic.

I saw this documentary about Pila town in Laguna, which is a heritage town like Vigan, Ilocos Sur

^I'm amazed with those ancestral houses and also the artifacts found in Pila
from Pre-Hispanic too. They were lucky also from WWII because nobody died from that town or damages.
It's really an heritage town. they named the town 'La Noble Villa de Pila'.

Well, the The Philippines were under Spanish Colonial rule for 300 years! Looks like you can consider some Filipinos of Spanish blood, but just not from Mexico aka Hispanics or Mexicans! Sort of I guess Hispanic only by heritage during Spain's sovereign rule over the Philippines!

I forgot to include Mexican ancestry. Some Filipinos have Mexican ancestry.

It seems like a lot of Filipinos are saying yes, but non-Filipinos are saying no, so which is more important. Self-identity or how you are viewed?

Of course because non Filipinos do not know anything about Philippine history and Filipino culture. Add to that, being the only one separated from it's Latin American cousins. If there is anyone who can say we are hispanic or not, it should be us Filipinos afterall it is our own culture.

I want to see poll data suggesting that Filipinos think they are Hispanic or Asian. I want an actual, scientific poll, not an informal one like C-D
