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.

Lol. I am not gonna lie. Some Filipinos look Mexican so I guess it goes both ways. I've also heard Filipinos being called the Mexicans of the East xD

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..

most filipinos are dark skin so i would guess that people think they are Thai or Vietnamese.... only very few look chinese or japanese and those that do is because they actually have either japanese or chinese ancestry.
