°Many of the Philippines have Spanish surnames

°Philippine languages are replete with Spanish words

°Philippine cultures in general seem to be more "Latin" compared to other Asian nations.

No. They have a culture tied to the Asian Rim, but instead of being Muslim like Indonesia, or Buddist like SE Asia, they are Catholic (Spanish property for centuries).

There is an island off China called Macau. It was in Portuguese hands for centuries and recently returned to Chinese rule. Its Asian with some weird Portuguese influences.

Then there's Hong Kong. It has a British influence. IMO that influence is fading fast now that its Chinese.

You know thats a weird part of the world now that I think of it....

NO

I would consider them Asian, why? Because it's in Asia.
But I know a few who wouldn't consider themselves Asian, so you might be on to something

At least the ones who are not Overseas Chinese (who more often than not tend to be somewhat racist and nepotistic, not allowing intermarriage if they can help it).

They are mestizos, albeit, instead of Spanish mixed with Native American, it's Spanish mixed with Native Philippine peoples.

The Philippines was formerly a Spanish colony and that is why many Filipinos have Spanish names.

Yes, they are Asian but all Filiinos are not Catholic. Many natives of southwest Asia (espeically Vietnam) are. In our area, we have a large congregation of Catholic fathers and brothers (Carthage MO) and they are Vietnamese. In our diocese, many of the priests are Vietnamese.
