Hi Arvin,
Pic#2 is a different species. It is Thomisus iswadus, similar to my spotting - Note the posterior view of abdomen which is projected outwards (in Tagalog "iswad").

Pic#1&3, I am still not sure if T. okinawensis or T. ilocanus. Could you also take a look at the illustrations in this book? -

Nice captures :) I think pic 2 (on yellow alder flower) should account for a separate spotting.
