DNA ethnicity test

#1
So, I've done a DNA test back in August, to find out what my ethnicity is. I know that I'm Asian, but how much? I've seen so many YouTube videos about DNA test results posted by Americans, especially Afro-Americans, because they wanted to know what they are besides what they are. I was curious about my background. I was not adopted or anything and as far as I knew, I'm fully Chinese. I had to spit in a tube and mix it with a blue solution, put it in a box and sent it to a lab in Dublin. According to ancestry.com I had to wait 6 till 8 weeks to get my results. Instead of waiting for 2 months, I received my results within 3 weeks, which was very fast. I didn't expect it to be that fast.

Guess what? I'm not 100% east Asian. According to the DNA test results I'm 88% east Asian and 12% Polynesian, so I'm either partly Tongan, Rapa Nuian, Maori, Samoan, Cook islander or Hawaiian. On ancestry.com where I did the test, they also immediately matched my profile with my distant cousins. I've found my 5th cousins and many of them are from the Philippines.

I wasn't surprised, but I was hoping for to be partly native American. I do think it's cool though. :)

Have any of you ever done a DNA ethnicity test? If so, what are your results and are you happy with it? Do you feel awesome about it?

Ive been wanting to do something like that. Im black but I dont know what else is in there. I might have to look into how much it costs now. I remember when they first started doing it it was pretty high. But that was years ago.
