Aside from the Spaniards, the Philippine culture was also heavily influenced by the Chinese settlers. From clothing to food, the influences of the Chinese are very evident. A testimony to that is the Lumpia or spring rolls. Although it has Chinese origins, it has been embraced and become part of Filipino cuisine.

In almost every Filipino gathering, the Lumpia will always be one of the staple dishes served. In a deeper sense, the Lumpia symbolizes the welcoming manner of Filipinos. They are accustomed to being open and accepting to new experiences and groups of people. This celebrates fusion of new cultures and having unity among people coming from different backgrounds.
