Is this called Malay Lacewing? Correct me if I am wrong.
Nice to meet Espion who give me tip on this beauty.

C/C are welcome.
BTW, would anyone recommend me a reference book for butterfly or spider that I could use in Singapore?

Fuhai,

You ID is correct, you have shot a Cethosia hypsea hypsina (Malay Lacewing)

For web reference on butterflies in Singapore you can refer to the Checklist at ButterflyCircle site

For Hard copy of Butterfly reference I would recommend :

"A Guide to Butterflies of Singapore " (pocket reference) by Steven Neo Published by Singapore Science Centre.

"The Butterflies of Malayan Peninsular" (in dept reference) by A. Steven Corbet and H.M. Pendlebury

the aboves are available at the Singapore Botanical Garden book stores

For spider your can refer to "A Guide to Common Singapore Spiders" by Joseph KH Koh .


Cheers!

Thanks for sharing the interesting website.
Here is another closer view of Malay Lacewing. Notice this butt is sucking nectar with a straw.
