Oriental White-Eye

I think this is an Oriental White-Eye and because this is not a full bodied shot it was  difficult to differentiate it between Everett's White Eye. If I got the ID wrong, please let me know.

Oriental and Everetts White-Eye almost look the same.
The extent of yellow on the belly is possibly the best field character for distinguishing these species.In Oriental White-eye specimens there was barely any yellow on the mid-line. Reference here.
