    $\begingroup$ Not that colourful IMO! What do you think it could be? Look like some hymenoptera with its apocrita to me $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ The short orange antennae and the round eyes are those of a Diptera, although I can't tell the family $\endgroup$

This looks to me like a stilt-legged fly from the family Micropezidae. https://www.singaporegeographic.com/insects/insect/stilt-legged-fly-micropezidae

Perhaps, more specifically: Mimegralla albimana
