Spanish because they were a Spanish colony for about three hundred years, i think.
& I'm not really sure about Chinese, but since Chinese is a neighboring country of the Philippines so i guess many Chinese people go there to start businesses and stuff.

The History of the Philippines is believed to have begun with the arrival of the first humans via land bridges at least 30,000 years ago.[1] The first recorded visit from the West is the arrival of Ferdinand Magellan on Homonhon Island, southeast of Samar on March 16, 1521.[2]

Spanish colonization began with the arrival of Miguel López de Legazpi's expedition in 1565 and permanent settlement on the island of Cebu,[3] and more settlements continued northward reaching the bay of Manila on the island of Luzon in 1571.[4] In Manila, they established a new town and thus began an era of Spanish colonization that lasted for more than three centuries.[5]

Spanish rule brought political unification to an archipelago of previously independent islands and communities that later became the Philippines, and introduced elements of western civilization such as the code of law, printing and the calendar. The Philippines was ruled as a colonial territory of New Spain from 1565 to 1821, and then administered directly from Madrid. During the Spanish period numerous towns were founded, infrastructures built, new crops and livestock introduced, and trade flourished. Spanish missionaries converted most of the population to Christianity and founded schools, universities and hospitals across the islands.

The Philippine Revolution against Spain began in April 1896, culminating two years later with a proclamation of independence and the establishment of the First Philippine Republic. However, the Treaty of Paris, at the end of the Spanish-American War, transferred control of the Philippines to the United States. This agreement was not recognized by the Philippine Government which, on June 2, 1899, proclaimed a Declaration of War against the U.S.[6] The Philippine-American War which ensued resulted in massive Filipino casualties.[7] Filipino leader Emilio Aguinaldo was captured in 1901 and the U.S. government declared the conflict officially over in 1902. The Filipino leaders, for the most part, accepted that the Americans had won, but hostilities continued until 1913. U.S. colonial rule of the Philippines started in 1905 with very limited local rule. Partial autonomy (commonwealth status) was granted in 1935, preparatory to a planned full independence from the United States in 1946. Preparation for a fully sovereign state was interrupted by the Japanese occupation of the islands during World War II.[4]

With a promising economy in the 1950s and 1960s (even being second to Japan), the Philippines in the late 1960s and early 1970s saw a rise of student activism and civil unrest against the corrupt dictatorship of President Ferdinand Marcos who declared martial law in 1972.[4] Because of close ties between United States and President Marcos, the U.S. government continued to support Marcos even though his administration was well-known for massive corruption and extensive human rights abuse. The peaceful and bloodless People Power Revolution of 1986, however, brought about the ousting of Marcos and a return to democracy for the country. The period since then, however, has been marked by political instability and hampered economic productivity.

but on the other hand, china's our bitch, where 10% of the population has chinese blood. other than that we just keep to ourselves, well except the women who are crushing on the Germans and Irish

aw... doesn't really matter. but i think those stats you made up should be actually higher. most of us have mixed blood anyway.

@topic
Philippines is a multi-cultural country but its highly influenced by Spain, China, USA and even Japan.
example:
Spain - foods(lots of Filipino dishes are actually Spanish in origin and name), religion(Christianity, of course), language(numbers of Filipino words are derived from Spanish words)
China - foods(pansit/noodles like miswa), beliefs(feng shui)
USA - language(well of course English)
Japan - foods(best example is tempura), some Japanese culture(example of a Japanese culture inherited by the Filipinos is when visiting someone's house, you have to leave your footwear outside before going in. but most Filipinos nowadays would tell anyone doing that to just wear the freaking shoes or slippers. lol)
