Top Definition
1. A race that is asian by geography, but has little in common with other asian nations. A hard working, industrious, and very strong family oriented people, but notoriously useless at organizing anything beyond chaos as a nation of people.

2. An exceptional breed of gardener indigenous to a Southeast Asian island chain called the Philippines. A natural born weed whacker.
1. Filipinos are fickle lot. Hard working, yet never accomplishing anything worthwhile as a people.

2. If they had a weed whacking event in the olympics the Philippines would win gold every time.

We're from the Philippines. :)

Looks:
Dark hair, tan skin, short height, flat nose (mostly but it suits our looks, anyway), simply beautiful, and sexy! :D

Attitude, interests, etc.
*Ofcourse, I'll say Filipinos are really nice because I'm a filipino lol. But seriously, most of us really are. Sure, there are some who are not but every country has a good and not that good citizens, right?

*We've got a great sense of humor, I'll assure you. We love joking around and stuff even if its corny, we still laugh at it. We always laugh as if its our last day:)

*Filipinos love to have fun; specifically speaking, anything that includes food, music and a lot of friends. You have no idea how much we love eating! XD

*We value the people around us so much. We treat our friends as a family.

*About accent thingy, I dont know but I think we are really good at that. I mean, we can speak english well, most of us even fluently. We can even speak in other countries' accent; meaning, we dont sound so trying hard when speaking in other's language lol.

*Tagalog is our main language, but there are so much more in the Philippines. I honestly dont even know most of them because there's really a lot.

*Some Filipinos have the foreign faces, even if they are naturally born Filipino. Well, simply amazing :3 :D

*We are so nice but, dont. ever. seriously. mess. up. with. us. We are kinda mean, in case of emergency. :p

*And especially, we have a great faith in the Lord. We value it so much. :)
*A filipino went to his/her friend's house*

Filipino: Uyy! Anong meron dyan? (Yo, what do you have there? -- *talks about food hahaha*)

Actually, we are proud to be a really food lover! :) At least, we dont get so fat. :p

Contrary to American belief, Filipino people are actually very much like the other SE Asian countries. They have strong family values and suffer from political corruption and Muslims. However, Filipinos on UrbanDictionary are clearly susceptible to raging for some reason. Anyway, here are some reasons other countries have us figured wrong:

*When, persay, a Filipino student arrives in the U.S, he/she is immediately under the pressure of American society at school to be what they keep saying. Some Filipinos will go along with it and become "ghetto Asians." Others will fight it. Still, others may try to stay under the radar so they don't need to hear any more ignorance.

*They believe that just because we were an export colony of Spain, that were all a bunch of Mexicans. While it is true that about 2% are part Spanish, that leaves the rest to be Pacific Islander and Asian. Even so, it's not your race that determines your personality.

*Since America is the dominant power, what rumors flow out of there are considered superior (to a diminishing extent, however).

*In other Asian countries, they are similarly racist towards Filipinos and face discrimination, thus, get worse jobs than if they were of different descent.

Loosely, any person who is a citizen of or immigrant from the Philippines.

Filipinos are an intelligent hard working group of people who are better categorized as Pacific Islanders than Asians. Although the 7000+ islands comprising the filipines are closer to the area known as asia, the culture and people share little else with their asian neighbors.

Filipinos do not use chopsticks and the preferred method of eating is with the bare hands, Tagalog (as well as the 140 other languages native to the the area) are of polynesian origin and structure. Traditionally, dance, mythology and ritual tattoos were a part of the culture, in similar fashion to most other polynesian cultures.

During the Spanish invasion, the Spaniards continued their practice of killing anyone unwilling to convert to Catholocism (i.e the native American indians of Western America). A smart lot, most Filipinos converted rather than facing a painful death. However, much of the indigenous culture was sadly lost.

She doesn't really look asian - maybe she is Filipino.

Racially, there is no such thing as "Filipino" race. This is because Filipinos consist of Spanish, Chinese, African, Indian, Polynesian, Austronesian etc. blood. They are among the most resilient and adaptable people on Earth. You can find them in the coldest parts of Alaska or Canada, to hottest part of Middle East, to the roughest of oceans as seafarers. They are generally small and short in stature, but are much tougher than they appear. Their faith in their religion and their family bonds make them the mentally toughest group of people in the world. Filipinos particularly those who grew up in the Philippines are shy and unassuming. However, behind those meekness lies the heart of a lion! Filipinos who grew up in the first world countries generally are arrogant.

Filipinos are very hospitable and friendly, often misinterpreted by English-speaking Europeans or Americans as something else. Life is tough in the Philippines that's why Filipinos go abroad even in places like Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia or Nigeria. If you think your life is tough due to the current economic situation? You ain't seen nothing, mate. Go live in the Philippines and you'll see what really "tough situation" means from a Filipino perspective. No matter how bad a situation is, a Filipino will always find a reason to laugh.
Manny Pacquiao is a great example of a Filipino. He is far from perfect that is why he represents the "real Filipino" as opposed to Jose Rizal or those elite people of the past.

Filipinos, or Flips as they are better known as, are a species of sub-human from the Philippine Islands in the South China Sea. The islands serve as the world's largest zoo boasting many varied species of flora and fauna along with the indigenous sub-humans called Flips.

They are famed worldwide for copying famous inventions, cuisine, cultural traits and ideas and re-branding them as their own. They are however, also infamous for not being able to copy them perfectly and all their products end up working worse than the originals. When this happens, the typical Flip will then resort to lying about it, outright cheating more gullible folk or just plain stealing when all else fails.

As the world's only zoo nation. They are much loved for the spectacle they afford everyone else. From old favourites like the 'world's largest outdoor swimming pool whenever it rains', to 'electing an old boxer with possible brain damage to be a president'.

They also have the great honour of being the test bed for every chemical weapon deployed in human history. Mustard gas? It's called Mustard gas because it was first deployed in Makati, Manila.

The 'M' in Mustard was taken from the 'M' in Manila. Though the gas deployed at that time was significantly weaker than what is used today, hence the surviving, yet mentally retarded populace.

And that my friends is the example of a Filipino.
Person A: Man! That's a nice pair of shoes you got on!
Person B: These aren't shoes, they're flip flops!
Person A: Flip flops?
Person B: Yeah, you know, the skin of a flip? They're resilient as hell! More than a century of lying and stealing while believing their lies makes a flip quite resistant to the elements!

Person A: Man! That's awesome! Where can I get me some flips to skin?

Person X: Dude, these crummy "Filipino Pride" headphones broke after a day of use!
Person Y: Well yeah, it's "Filipino Pride" for a reason, you buy them to support the zoo, but you're meant to steal headphones from the other tourists!
