Spanish names came from the conversion etc, and so did part of modern Tagalog words. but that's not destruction of culture.Wd40 wrote: Spanish names.
Spanish accent when they speak English(I like the way they pronouce January as "Janwary" )
European food habits; read pork knuckles. Imagine if not for the Spanish, they might all be muslims halal and no touching pork.
Portuguese also had a similar transformation over Goa. Read: carnival just like in Brazil, pork, alcohol and partying.
Somehow the British couldnt/didnt do the same transformation.
I would safely say 90% or more of their original culture is intact.
Muslims? did you really say Filipinos didn't eat pork before the spanish came in ?
what next? they were living in caves and hunting before Magellan? (who was coincidentally killed by a Filipino Chieftain)
and ever heard of Tuba? or Tapuy?
mm, I think you should just stick to stuff you are well versed, like, India???
so, India didn't get polluted by Brits? interesting to hear that.
