I was at a Mass for Our Lady of Penafrancia, the patroness of the Bicol Region, when some Filipinos asked me what province I was from. I'm Mexican.

I've been called Mexican, and without my glasses I apparently look Chinese.

I am usually mistaken as Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, Thai, Hmong. There were only very few people as far as I can remember that can tell I'm a Filipino in one guess.
There was one time a lady approached me and my brother and asked if we can read the pamphlet she's holding for her... It's was written in Chinese..
I don't really get mad if people asking for my ethnicity, at least they ask.. But there are really some people automatically assume you're this or that..
