Yes, it is a wasp. The only article I could found about them was this:

It would be really cool if someone could give an ID, this wasp is way too cool!

The eyes look like many of the Paper Wasps family.
I first thought it might be a Polistes, but they'r enot a common species of the Phillipines.
Some hornets also have the same "eye-shield".
