My day was obviously harder than I thought!! I apologize! It is a cotton stainer as Ashish mentioned above. I was mislead by a "bad link" and did not make a careful check as I usually do. But I give you at least now the orrect ID...

I don't think this is a cotton stainer or Pyrrhocoridae. In my eyes this is a seed bug or Lygaeidae.

dear, Ashish Nimkar. I used my iPhone camera and cropped the picture. I am sorry for the poor quality.
You are absolutely right. They are Cotton strainers. Thank you :)

There were plenty of them in Bangkok when I was young, but there seem to be lessen now.

Benjaphon, it is not a beetle, but a bug. A kind of milkweed bug, I guess, from family Lygaeidae.
