Thanks, @Jellis.
I thought this is either a Grasshopper or Cricket as the antennae although long but is not as long as usually the Katydid have. Most Katydid have long antennae that are sometimes much longer than their body.

I believe this is a species of Katydid. Found to photos but both are stock with no ID. http://travel.mongabay.com/indonesia/ima...
