Due to their diasporic hybridity, Tsina/oys, which literally means Chinese Filipina/os, continue to look for ways to (re)define their multicultural identities. Tsinoy.com, an online community for Tsina/oys around the world, provided a space where Tsina/oys examined their identities, cultures, and linguistic practices to (re)construct what it means to be “Tsina/oy.” Using cyberethnography, I show how Tsinoy.com functioned not only as a forum for Tsina/oys to celebrate their diasporic hybrid identities, but it also served as a space to discuss the multiple tensions they experienced.
