Chun Xing Wong, yes it is looked like yours. Ok, I'll change it. Thank you Jalubko & Irungbam.

Ratna, Mr Chun is right its an Eupterote sp. (Eupterotidae). You can check another similar spotting of mine And 1 more thing, when we talk about the South east Asian moths, we should not refer the moths from American subcontinent. it is different.

I think it is an Eupterotidae (Eupterote sp).

I agree with Chun, this is more of a silk moth, perhaps genus Eupterote moth. This is not Xanthotype urticaria, which is only found in North America, and is much smaller with a different wing pattern and shape. Here is a Xanthotype urticaria I have found:

It does look quite similar to one of my spottings but I can't confirm that they are the same.
