The White Lady / Kaperosa
The White Lady is a particular sort of Multo, or apparition.

The manananggal has a desire for human blood and a specific desiring for the hearts of human hatchlings which it recovers with its long, proboscis-like tongue. Like the Western society’s vampire, the manananggals despise garlic and salt so hanging garlic or setting a dish of salt close to the window is the most ideal approach to keep them away. To slaughter a manananggal, one must locate the lower body and spread salt or slag on the open injury. That keeps the two parts from joining and changing back to human structure when sunlight breaks.
