At the fruit market, we were chatting with the guy at the counter. Rama asked me if the guy at the check-out counter was Filipino. He was, in fact, Chinese. But I verified.
Me to Chinese guy: You're Chinese, right?
Guy says yes. To Rama, he says, "You look Chinese, too!"
Rama: No, I'm Filipino. But I speak English because you can't understand Tagalog.
