Someone from the Phillippines. Filipinos born on American soil are considered 'Fil-Ams'.
Boy: I am Filipino
Girl: I am Filipina!
Both: We're Filipinos!!
Amazing race of people who mostly are confused whether they are Asian or Pacific Islander when they are really both. Some Filipinos especially Filipino Americans think they are black. But that's because they listen to too much Hip-Hop. not saying that listening to Hip-hop is bad for Filipinos but like San Miguel beer and other forms of alcohol it should be listened to with Pulutan.
Other Filipinos must speak Ilokano if they live in Hawaii and only in Hawaii must they speak Ilokano. In the mainland USA they can Speak in any Other Filipino language they wish. If
Civilian life is too hard for a Filipino they must join the Filipino
Mafia by enlisting in the US Navy, which is really the Filipino
Navy. To become a full fledge Member of the Filipino Mafia
you must be fluent in Tagalog. This is different than the
Ilokano Mafia,in which you must be fluent in Ilokano. To join the Pacquiao mafia I think U have to be fluent in Visayan as a pre-requisit. A true Visayan also has to own a Kris Sword, married Visaya couples will both be equal in skill with the Kris Sword. All younger generation Males are good at basketball or have repressed basketball skills that only shine through daily practice.
Last of all, Ilocanos are either Rich or extremely Kuripot.
Manny Pacquiao is the Greatest Boxer in the universe. Floyd Mayweather Jr. Is an arrogant bastaard, a Fat Filipino Martial Artist who eats fish, rice , and pork on a daily basis could whup his @$$!
Other behavioral traits of Filipinos include:
-Taking an elder's hand and saying 'mano po' as a sign of respect
-Washes their butt with water, unlike 'other' people who use toilet paper. Let's face it, using toilet paper is useless, your just wiping it, its still there, you will smell it and it will stain your underwear. But, if you use water (in a pail) and soap, it is washed off, instead of being smeared across your bottom.
-Cooking canned food instead of eating it out of the can. Meats are usually cooked in oil, others such as Sardines and Tuna are cooked with onion, garlic and other seasoning.
A: Ew, its canned Sardines.
Filipino: Are you going to eat it out of the can?
Filipino: Why don't you add onion, garlic, soy sauce and vinegar and cook it for 10 minutes?
A: How clever.
people that are of Spanish, Malay, and other Polynesian descent.
-how come she doesn't look very asian?
-because she's Filipino, they are mixed ethnically.
Someone from, or having descended from someone, living in the Philippines, an island nation off the coast of mainland Asia in the Pacific Ocean and South China Sea.
Nonposers please identify yourself by providing the defintion for "kamusta ka", and please add if you're mistisa or not.
Filipinos are not just "another race". We are hardworking, honest, and proud to be alive and well. Our country may be small, but we still love and respect it. Who cares if we're short? Who cares if we're poor? We live everywhere in the world. We don't eat rice and work all day. We have vacation time! Some of us are ANNOYED and ANGERED by the stereotypes that Americans and other people make up about us. We try to be friendly and on good terms with people. But sometimes people just don't care...
In conclusion, a Filipino is an honest, kind, loyal, and friendly person. A Filipino is WHO I AM!!!
I AM A FILIPINO!!!!!!!!!!
Filipino- from the Philipines
Has some of the greatest foods ever- Pansit, Lumpia...However you spell it.
