Plant or weed, Mimosa Pudica, sensitive plant.

Aah, we use to play with this plant when we were still in elementary school! Locally known as makahiya, the leaves will fold closed when touched. It grew in a grassy field and was considered a weed. It is not a native to the Philippines however.It came from South and Central America!
