The interaction between China and the Philippines started over a thousand years ago. Now there are roughly 1.5 million Filipinos with pure Chinese ancestry, mostly from South China's Fujian Province. Food from South China was also brought in to the Philippines, becoming an indispensable part of local people's lives. In terms of language, about 1,500 Tagalog words in the Philippines come from southern China's Fujian dialect and Cantonese, most of these words are about food and life, according to statistics.
