Honestly, my Filipino friends will not be happy when a chinoy insists there is nothing Filipino in himself :( I hope you read the recent article calling chinoys to pledge their allegiance to the country, or leave. I know it's off topic.

Compared to a Malaysian Chinese, you are still much much lower in the preference level, I am sure.

And for your info, Malaysian Chinese are partly welcome for their Chinese heritage and partly for their Malaysian heritage.

So, where do your ancestors come from ?

The main reason that Malaysian Chinese are the most favorable of all the regional Chinese is that they find it easier to integrate with the Local Chinese as Malaysia and Singapore at one time were one and there are lots of extended families across both. Also, they speak the same language more or less and the habit are the same more or less. Singapore and Malayian English is similar as well.

No, no. Lol. I'm not disowning the Filipino culture that's instilled within me. :D Yeah i know regarding the allegiance to the country because my dad was required to do such because his nationality is Chinese.

Yes I'm pretty sure that my preference level is lower of course :)

My ancestors come from China (yeah) haha. :D

If you gonna harp on your Chinese Ancestry, I would suggest that you brush up on your roots.
