The Chinese commuter who splashed taho on a police officer at an MRT3 Station has outraged many Filipinos.
KAMI learned that new details have emerged about the controversial foreigner.
According to the GMA-7 news program 24 Oras, the girl has been identified as Jiale Zhang.
She is 23 years old and has been in the Philippines for six years already.
Zhang is in the country as a fashion design student. The Chinese woman has apologized for what happened, saying that she was in a bad mood when the incident took place.
She added that she likes the country and its people.
"I really like the Philippines, that's why I stay here. I like the people here.
“I really love Filipinos, that's why I stayed here and I like this country," Zhang said.
The encounter between Zhang and the policeman happened when she was asked to finish consuming her taho before entering the MRT3 Boni Station last Saturday.
This was asked of her due to the recent total ban on all liquids, after bomb threats were received.
Instead of following the protocol, Zhang splashed the cop with her taho, which led to her getting detained by the police.
