So sad ... I'm the only Asian/Filipino on the BBS?

To be more precise, my deep, deep ancestors were originally from Eastern China. I submitted a DNA sample to the Genographic Project a couple of years ago and had my paternal side analyzed.

Haplogroup O (M175)

I guess I fall under the category of Austronesian/Malayo-Polynesian.
I just submitted my DNA sample to 23andMe, primarily to take part in medical research, but they also provide ancestry info. I think that's going to be fascinating, but I'm disappointed that I can get only the maternal side analyzed. My father's deceased, I don't have a brother, and I don't have a Y chromosome of my own.
