Baka may ibang meaning ang "instik" kaya ayaw ng maraming chinese na ganito itawag sa kanila. I have no idea though on what "instik" means. :shock:

Well, you are right on teo things there hottee.
First, about the tagalog term for 'chinese' is 'instik' in translation.
Second, some 'chinese' don't like being called that.

In my opinion, I guess the reason why some chinese are offended by the term is probably by the way it SOUNDS. It really sounds offensive, hindi siya 'cool'; don't you think? It has a negative feel to it. As for me am ok by the term 'instik'.

So, fellow chinese if us guys don't like being called 'instik'; why don't we just think of a term we can substitute for THE word.

Specially Pinoys are most welcomed to participate since its our language too!

:lol: count me in.

I am half Filipino and Chinese. I speak the linggo. mandarin and fookien. I do agree- "intsik" for some has a negative sound to it. I came across a new paper with the word "chinoy" also not a good choice of word. I feel those words has a racism attached to it. Why not..... Filipino-Chinese. Its a good representation of overseas chinese staying here in the Philippines. Dont you think?

You are right must even be Filipino-Chinese, we are mostly Chinese by blood but carries Philippines passport and speaks tagalog fluently ;) for the word "intsik", from what I have been told it should not offend us Chinese because, it was a term given by our ancestors when they were asked by the filipinos in early times what to call them, they said "din chiek" or your uncle when translated so anong masama sa word "intsik" :lol:

Cheers!

that's the correct term if you claim your being a Filipino over being a Chinese. So parang adjective yung word na "Chinese" sa noun na "Filipino" - A Filipino who happens to have some Chinese blood. this was explained to me by a Chinese-Filipino friend.

i'm not Chinese.
