And here are my Dr McDonald results using the same FTDNA raw data:

this is best done with a custom fit. See .rtf file. Note that we have no
useful comparisons east of Malaysia (Melanesian/Papuan does not count).

Dai 0.3396 She 0.1579 Malaysian 0.5025 or
South_Han 0.2841 Dai 0.1875 Malaysian 0.5284 or
Dai 0.2645 She 0.1528 Cambodian 0.5827 or
Dai 0.3740 Malaysian 0.5030 Japanese 0.1230

which is where Filipinos always end up,.

It also has 1.3% European and 1.1% Mideast and 1.3% S. Asian. These
are not E. Asian, and are real ... but they are not significantly
different **from each other** and could be any or all of the three.

I don't have any Chinese ancestry that I know off but I think 23andme does the best job of detecting my true Chinese ancestry as shown from my ancestry composition here:
