Hi KC, Nice catch of the pair, the black version of our local day flying moths, but not necessarily Amata sp.
More likely Auriculoceryx transitiva, or A. pterodactyliformis, described as males with white tipped antennae from :

See also : http://www.mothsofborneo.com/part-6/plate2.php
Family : Arctiidae
Subfamily : Syntominae

Now you have some idea !!
