Most likely to be the Cirrochroa surya siamensis (Little Yeoman).

I think KC is correct for the ID, note the marking on forewing upperside termen area is diff from C. surya.

Here is another shot of the same species from Sabah ;)

It is C emalea, which is common in Malaysia. C surya is not as common.
