A native of the Philippines, so called in honour of Spanish king Philip II. Filipinos are notorious for being the only Hispanics in Asia. Family-oriented people, they are fond of fiestas, church-going and commercial centers. They speak Malay languages mixed with an awful lot of Spanish words. They like dancing Iberian dances, as the jota, and eat lechón, mechado, arroz caldo, pan de sal and many more Spanish delicacies. Filipinos shock their Spanish brethren from Spain and America for not being able to speak Spanish.Instead, they try to converse with them in broken English, a language that most Hispanics totally ignore. Filipinos have Spanish names and surnames, although many of them seem to ignore that fact. They are fond of Spanish diminutives to call themselves, as Lito, Pilita, Solita, Conchín, Tato, Manín, Cory, Luli, and many more. Although the Philippines enjoyed a wonderful architectural Spanish heritage, everything was destroyed by the Americans, so now they have nothing.

Filipinos are descendants of the Philippine Islands, an area in the Asian continent. However, Filipinos have little in common with other Asians such as the Vietnamese, Cambodian, Chinese, Korean, etc.

Filipinos are Pacific Islanders. They have more in common with the people of the neighboring islands of Samoa, Guam, and Hawaii.
Are Filipinos considered Asian or Pacific Islanders?

They're Pacific Islanders. They have more in common with Samoans, Guamanians, and Hawaiians than they do with Chinese, Vietnamese, and Korean people.

A bunch of people that quarrel over petty things such as TV Networks.
Filipinos always think that ABS-CBN is better than GMA, or vice-versa. Either way, it's pointless and stupid to argue about stuff like that. Both stations suck, anyway.

An asian type sort of people. Most consider themselves to be more of the HISPANIC ethnicity (because of the huge similarities in surnames) or their OWN kind of race.
A majority (Est:98%) of Filipino people are born and raised Catholic so DO NOT I repeat DO NOT ask them to engage or participate in any sort of misconduct. They are usually honest hard working folks who try to stay away from bad people and situations.
Famously known for their year round always sweet riped mangos and tagalog dialect, they are just about the most loveliest wonderful kind of people.
Mixed Asian: hi where u from?

Filipino: I am FILIPINO! I come from de Philllipinnnes! Gada Sada Mada Hada!!!

Mixed Asian: ok already take it easy nobody is going to take away your mangos.
