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 @$$!

We're from the Philippines. :)

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

1. Filipino is a native of the Philippines.

2. They are always mixed up for being either an Asian or a Pacific Islander. Officially, Filipinos are categorized as Asians and the Philippines are part of South-east Asia.

3. Others would say that Filipinos are the Mexicans of Asia. (Kinda agree on that.)

4. They look Hispanic due to past history with Spain. The Philippines was "discovered" by Magellan in 1521, who declared them Spanish territory. However, Magellan was killed and Spain didn't invade again until 1565. They had control from 1571 until 1898, when it was transferred to the United States after the Spanish-American War.

5. Most Filipinos have olive skin. I guess, you could say "naturally tan". However, not all are. Others have darker skin tones. There are those who are half-Filipinos that are fairer either because they have Western blood or something in them that made their colour the way it is.

6. Most Filipinos are known for being hard-working. Nobody is perfect so yes, there are those that are still lazy but there are more that are hard-working.

7. Not all Filipinos tok like dis not all chenge der p to f or vice versa.

8. The Philippines was actually once a rich country until the government, well, became corrupt.

9. Jollibee.

10. It's more fun in the Philippines.
Filipinos are awesome and so are other races, OKAY.
