i don't know == == In http://wiki.answers.com/Q/The_influence_of_chinese_and_arab_to_the_filipino, there is a mention of where Fipinos came from. Excavations in archeological sites have proven that during prehistoric times, the native Negritos came in contact with Malays and Indonesians who left their ancestral home in Southeast Asia by crossing the seas in their sailboats (balangay), and settled the Philippine archipelago. Inter-racial marriages took place among them and out of these racial mixtures emerged the Filipino people. It was the Spaniards who named the country, but the cultures are from the Malayan people.
