    ^your reading into this too much. I dont think anyone is saying we are the same. People are just wondering if there any similarities.

    Of course Viet, khmer and Filipinos are different, but if there is a chance of connections why not be open to it? open to discussion. if we were so powerful and able to manipulate water, exploring the islands wouldn’t be too far fetched. If India could reach us (which is equated to going to the moon in our time) why cant the ppl of Philippines?

    Of course we are unique. Every country already established their uniqueness and as mankind strives to forward, our next step is to find our connections. Why Not?

    If you don’t like it, ignore it or think of it this way. May sound crazy but before we find other civilizations in outer space maybe its a good idea to start building the unity of the earth nation now. Finding a connection between our countries is a good step towards that unity. LOL. Just trying to think outside the box lol.
    May sound like science fiction, but the idea of Man’s Unity sounds pretty cool!

    Just a friendly discussion

    and i do look kindly when someone say this or that just because we look lik them or whatever.

    Khmer just like filipino have their various looks depending region, mixing and what not.

    Looks are not the basis of if we are countries that are alike or whatever.

    So please be proud of your cutlures and dont combine it with khmer culture.

    you can say that for any people…Im sure you can find a viet looking khmer if that person is mixed with viet

    culturally and physically…both are different from each other…khmers tend to look indianish…filos tend to look taiwanese native/bornean

    in fact Taiwanese with native ancestry would probably have more in common with flips due to shared ancestry…while khmers come from india

    lol maybe indians should start thinking if they are african since many of them are dark skinned as well like africans??? thats the logic your going by…ur basing all of this on skin color probably…even though filos tend to look lighter

    OO0o0o0o, i think i may have found it you guys,
    according to this map of a human migration theory

    some of our ancestors(mankind) may have left the indochinese pininsula and also settled in the philipines

    Hmm looks like a beeline route

    And then both our countries had chinese coming in later on from different sides. thats why we look the same lol.
    WE WERE FLANKED!

    BAM! that was fun to research
    If this is old news ignore me. lol

    khmers weren’t around 40,000 years ago…the mongoloid race as we know it was not around during that time

    that map showed old asians (australoids) migration pattern…not the new wave of asians

    cambos never settled in the Philippines

    the only people to settle the Philippines were australoids/negritos who became/are the ancestors of the aeta and ati ethnic minorities

    and taiwanese & borneans who are the ancestors of the filipino people…cambodians are neither taiwanese native or bornean…so you are not related to filos..

    some indonesians live in the southern part…but they are illegal aliens…kind of like how u find mexicans living in Utah or Chicago..illegal aliens

    if you know anything about Philippine history…the Philippines were the most unwelcome to the chinese..the Philippines during spanish rule was very anti-chinese…they were discriminated…heavily taxed…and routinely massacared..unlike Indochina…where chinese are everywhere..Philippines has the smallest chinese prescence in SEAsia due to the treatment they had here

    Yeah i can care less what you guys look like. The goal of this thread is to connections. whoa man!, dont’ get your panties in a knot.

    But yeah,
    she doesn’t look like any filos ive seen in my life at all. She could just be Chinese, and not know it at all. I have Khmer friends like that, they think they full khmer but they just look chinese. Im not gonna tell them otherwise, its rude, because they so proud of being khmer. There are a lot of cases like that in southeast asia.
    Where they are actually chinese but not know it at all.

    But yeah, those ppl in the past you metion may have been chinese but kept it a secret to avoid being ridiculed, over time their decendents may have forgotten their chinese heritage. makes sense

    Im not saying you’re wrong. But be opened to the idea man, because she does not look like any filos ive met. If your not open to the idea, i think you are just one of those ppl who just idolizes the east asian complex, something to get passed. I read in an article its actually a common issue in asia.

    oh and i never said khmer settle in Phillipines. i said our humankind ancestors may have settled in both places along their route

    Im just trying to open your mind man. We are all one on this planet! lol

    yeah because we base an entire people based on soley the people we met….
    lol maybe to an khmer she looks chinese..but in the Philippines she is just filipino…not chinese.. pureblood filos can look anything…because we were settled by different asiatic peoples during the origin of our country…not just one….Philippines is a blending of light skinned & dark skinned natives…taiwanese aboriginals & borneans…the ones who mixed with australoids(not very many) are the ones who could pass for cambodian IMO

    oh btw chinese in the Philippines don’t claim to be filipino..they always say they are chinese who happen to have citizenship in the Philippines…they segregate themselves from filipinos…which is why I know the girl I posted is not chinese

    why don’t u tell lao and viets that they are chinese…hell tell japanese & koreans they are chinese as well…
    because only chinese can have light skin..no one else

    what Im trying to say is the Philippines is made up of hundreds of different ethnics…we were not one people when the spanish came…we were different kingdoms ethnics and tribes who were warring against each other…spanish used this to take over Philippines

    it would be like if french took over cambodia, thailand, laos, and vietnam…and created one country…and only used vietnamese to represent the look of the country…how would you cambodians feel???
    hell not everybody in the Philippines is even the same race…some people are of a different race…the negritos for example

    if your looking for connection…then maybe use the cham

    they have austronesian connections I heard…though Im not sure if they are more related to peninsular malays or borneans
    if they are related to borneans then they are related to filipinos

    bornean and peninsular malays r 2 different people…borneans don’t fall under the malay umbrella..hence why its a fallacy to label filipinos as malay

    everybody on earth is somewhat somehow connected but who cares, im talking in terms in modern era of civilization, no matter khmer had full reach of their empire and building structures shows our strenght and lenght of influence. BUt by no means were we ever close to phillipinese. I think farthest the khmer empire reach was about malaysia oor in those region. So who cares if some look same or not does not have any meaning in terms of cultural comparison.

    Sorry i dont wanna affiliate with filipinos, singapre,malay or whatever etc….

    I find it rather offensive that u wanna blend our cutlure into theirs. Our culture is rich and even through colonization we still stick it tough to our culture.

    Phillipines are different they were colonize and look what happen, their names are spanish sounding, i think their christians, And their language is somewhat a blend of spanish.

    Even khmer been colonize for a short while we still have khmer names, still have king, still are buddhist and still khmer.

    because what french did to Cambodia was not real colonization…they just pump out natural resources from Cambodia…not like what happened to English and Spanish colonies…look at Hong Kong…they have english names…look at Macau, China…they can speak portuguese
