It is also shown in the 2 photos in Wikipedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cosmophasis...
but Wikipedia did not state it's species name below the pictures.
Based on the drawings of Cosmophasis valerieae, there is a 70% match except that the distribution of the species does not support your spotting as Cosmophasis valerieae.

Other Philippine Cosmophasis species:
Cosmophasis trioipina
Cosmophasis parangpilota
Cosmophasis estrellaensis

This spider is so colorful! It looks like a Jumping Spider of some type, Family Salticidae.
I am having trouble finding a website with jumping spider species for your area. Maybe you will have better luck.
