Thanks again, ForestDragon! It definitely looks like some variety of Carpenter Bee. It seems to resemble more with "Xylocopa waterhousei" but the wings looks different.

This looks like a species of Carpenter Bee. Very similar to Xylocopa caffra male but I don't know if they occur in your area.

Here is some info on Xylocopa caffra. Perhaps it can help you with an ID on yours.
