Connecting to the wrong data center (with IPv6)

Any way I can force the DNS to use a data center closer to my location? I’m from Philippines and Cloudflare keeps directing me to the LAX instead of MNL. It’s the same thing when trying Cloudflare’s speed test website. Routes me to Los Angeles instead of at least somewhere closer here in Asia. No problem with IPv4 as far as I’m aware. I think this is partly responsible for high ping results when using Cloudflare DNS compared to other public DNS

Cloudflare uses Anycast DNS. Your ISP determines the route to that IP address.

But IPv4 has no problem connecting to the Manila datacenter. Is this surely an ISP issue or maybe Cloudflare’s IPv6 MNL datacenter has an issue as well?
