Newly Hatched Heteropterans in Singapore

So I woke up one morning and found 6 small round dots on my window that look like eggs. There were 5 bugs altogether, 2 of them on the eggs and the other 3 around the eggs. The 3 were facing outwards like they are standing guard. They were extremely still except for an occassional movement in their feelers. I am dying to know what they are. The ”eggs” are still on my window.

Dear J,
These are newly hatched True Bugs in the suborder Heteroptera.  Our best guess is that they are in the family Coreidae, the Leaf Footed Bugs or Big Legged Bugs.
