Nowadays, there are no more pure blooded Filipinos. The winner of Miss Universe, our very own Miss Philippines, is a half-blood German and a Filipina being born in Germany with a German father, of course, and a Filipina mother. Technically, she is not a citizen of the Philippines but is a Phil-German.
I’m also half-blood with my father’s side being Chinese and my mother with a mix of Spanish descent. Even my officemates are “mestisos or mestisas”, half-breeds with facial features that are no longer distinctively Filipino. Take for example my colleague, she is a Filipina but you may also find her somewhat having a Caucasian face. I see her like a British girl… Minus the accent. 🙂
Just to sum it up, we are all “earthlings” regardless of race and creed. That’s what I call being “global”… Gone are the days when one is isolated and could be called as “pure blood”. Only vampires born as vampires are pure blood!
