Which type of UK supermarket rice is closest to Philippine rice?

I have visted the Philippines twice and had many delicious dishes served with the most amazing slightly-sticky rice.

Which type/variety of rice, which is readily available in UK supermarkets, is closest is terms of grain size, texture and fragrance? I have tried authentic Thai Jasmine rice which is delicious but much more fragrant. Long grain rice is nothing like it.

I've looked online and haven't been able to find any varieties that I recognise. I accept that I probably won't be able to find exactly the same variety so I'm looking for the closest match. There aren't any asian food markets/stores near me but it could be an option if nothing else is similar.

Any ideas? Thanks!
