You should move pic #4 to the #1 spot - it's the best one. Great shots of a beautiful insect. Looks like a piece of jewelry.

or Chrysocoris stolli, Asian Jewel bug. I don't think it's Calliphara nobilis as there are no mangrove swamps anywhere near and Wiki says the only food of the young Calliphara nobilis are the developing mangrove seeds.
