Of course you need a visa.

Actually, your presented itinerary is not eligible:

Philippines - Shanghai - Philippines

As you can see, this is a return trip or a visit to China. There is no a third country! I would suggest you something like this, a triangle:

Philippines - Shanghai - Hong Kong - Philippines

This itinerary is eligible for 144 hour visa free transit.

As already mentioned by Juliet, if your itinerary remains as you have presented it, you definitely need a Chinese tourist (L) visa obtained in advance.
