    Is there a possible connection between our two countries? The philipines and Cambodia…We all look a like I THINK, or is it just me? People have asked if I was Khmer. I’m filipino and I think that some khmers look filipino. Also, I observed that the pure filipino dances are almost similar to the cambodian and some thai dances. They use Those long Nails we call Janggay, and fans. I’m just curious.

    Spanish?mmm, Was cambodia part of French Indochina? Alot of filipinos think they have spanish because Europe occupied for 300 years. But only 3percent of all filipinos have spanish. Alot also have spanish last names because we were’nt alowed to have “pagan” names like Srangvat Sveay

    Yeah, we do look alike. Some Filipinos are Chinese that emigrated there. But real Filipinos look a lot like Khmer people, but so does everyone in South East Asia, I mean look at Malaysia, Indonesia, we all look a like.

    Yep, people always think that me and some of my friends are filipino. My friend and her bro thought I was filipino the whole time also. She found out when she tried to speak tagalog to me and I didn’t answer her, lol. The people who mostly know that I’m khmer, are khmer people.

    I don’t mind it, but EVERYONE thinks I’m a pinoy. I used to sing at a lot of Filipino Debutantes and I blend in quite well. When I’m just out and about, even khmer people ask if I’m flip!

    to be specific and precise, spain conquered the philippines for 333 years. however, its quite true that filipinos and khmers do look alike. i was always mistaken as khmer when i was in siem reap. :) however, are you sure that only 3% of filipinos have spanish blood in them? so tsinoyako, based on your sn, you are half filipino and half chinese?

    tsinoyako, what filipino dances do you know of that are similar to khmer and thai dances? ive been exposed to filipino folk dances all my life however ive only seen an apsara dance and this thai dance (with the monkey but forgot the name) and based on this little exposure (of thai and khmer dance) i dont see any similarities.i might be wrong though so could you please explain. :)

    About the dances, Have you seen the janggay dance? The wone wear these long nails and pose hand movements and arm movements to that Of Other mainland southeast asia. I guess alot of southe east asian Real dances are a little simmilar. I’m not talking about the Iberian influenced of filipino village dances, I’m talking about the oure native dances> Singkil: the one where the lady dances across criss cross bamboos withe fans. Then theres all the badjao dnaces, then the IndiraPatra dance. Then theres the ifugao dance which ifugao clothing are very simmilar to Montagnards and hill tribes in mainland southe east asia. Check our Likha Dance troup and Folklorico Filipino Dance Troup also Sayaw Pilipinas.
