Hi Bugman,
I’m from the Philippines, and spotted this colorful bug on the wall of my house last April 2013.
It was quite large measuring 2 to 3 inches.

Dear Mano,
We identified your Hemipteran as a member of the genus Pycanum on Project Noah.
  We learned on the Heteroptera website that it is in the family Tessaratomidae.
