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. Foods from South China were 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 Fujian dialect and Cantonese, and most of them are about food.
