Thanks bayucca, I mistook it as a moth due to its hairy body and thanks for the I.D. too.

Hesperiidae, Tagiades sp. and looks like being Tagiades gana. It is not a moth, but a skipper butterfly. The antennae are not as typical as usual for a skipper, but you might see a little and slim hook, which is typical for a skipper. Moths usually have filamentous/straight or featherlike antennae.
