I would say Penang is decidedly more colonially influenced than Kolkata.
I think Spanish were more domineering than the other European colonisers as Hispanic countries all have similar culture and temperament... or maybe it really made a difference having the same religion, the Spanish and Filipinos integrated more.

I think Javanaese and Sumatrans as being 'typical' Indonesians, while those from Luzon are 'typical' Filipinos. How similar is Bahasa Indonesia and Tagalog in your experience?
Totally different language, but i don't think many knew about each other that much.. Most Indonesians don't know where the Philippines or what it looked like... diplomatic relation however seems to be fairly good.

Malaysia and Indonesia shares a lot of cuisine, nasi dishes (nasi is rice), ayam (chicken), like nasi goreng, mee goreng, ayam kapitan/kopitam, kueh lapis (layer cake), otak otak (fish paste), satay, beef rendang, gado gado. Fried chicken, fried fish and sambal (chilli shrimp paste) is one thing that seems to define Indonesian cuisine, lol.

Apperently Indonesia attracts more Filipinos tourist than Philippines attract Indonesians lol, there are interestingly more Indonesians (47k) in the Philippines whom most are illegal migrants during the Suharto era, and most settled in Minandao.

besides the Philippines there are also many Asian Hispanics from Latin America

Chinese Hispanics, Japanese Peruvians, Brazil, Puerto Rico, etc

Today, the overwhelming majority of Asian Latin Americans are of Chinese, Japanese, or Korean decent

Im sure many of them are also culturally hispanic after living in those countries

With some conversations in Tagalog, a Spanish speaker who also knows English could get the gist of the conversation. It depends on the topic though. But I'm glad that the Spanish language didn't take over in the Philippines as it did in the other colonies. We have at least 150 different languages and most are thriving. The major regional languages have local news in their language, music, books, TV shows, films, and the children in those regions have that language as the medium of instruction in grades K-3.

My wife's native language is Bisaya-Cebuano. They have lots of Spanish and English loan words. But it's their own language.

Is she part of the Indigenous? doesn't she cooks Hispanic food items? What is her surname? Is she a Catholic? does she celebrate Noche Buena tradition, Semana Santa, Celebrating the Todos Los Santos? or Undas, joining the Festivities in Cebu for Sinulog for Pit Senyor Santo Nino? Is her national dress Maria Clara outfit? https://www.google.com.bh/search?q=m...ed=0CAcQ_AUoAQ
or the Filipiniana. This thread is not just about language it's also other cultural thing.


^this is what I am saying about
Semi-Hispanic, Muslim Filipinos, Animist Filipinos
and Catholic Filipinos and our Malay or Austronesian heritage etc.
mixing together.
