Liquids in bottles and canisters less than 100 milliliters are now allowed in MRT stations, its management said Thursday.

The MRT banned liquids following a double bomb attack that killed 22 people and wounded some 100 others at a cathedral in Jolo, Sulu. The no-liquids policy aimed to block liquid bombs.

"For as long as 100 below, parang sa airports po natin, puwede na silang magpasok," MRT Director for Operations Michael Capati told DZMM.

(For as long as its 100 mL below, like in our airports, commuters can now bring these liquids to the train station.)

A Chinese woman recently made headlines after throwing a cup of "taho" at a policeman who barred her from entering an MRT station due to the no-liquid policy.
