I was trying to capture this butterfly since last year but to no avail. Finally, I managed a few shots yesterday afternoon under harsh light.

Please correct me if I am wrong but I believed this is Common Leopard (Phalanta phalantha). I was checking out the profile of this species but no mention of Malaysia in it. Mostly found in India and lower Himalaya.
