An Ashy Tailorbird (Orthotomus ruficeps) observed at the Pandan River, Singapore, on 21 Aug 2019. I believe it was 'leaf bathing' as it was rubbing it's body and wings on the leaf at the time.

Here's a post about this behaviour [ https://besgroup.org/2007/03/05/leaf-bathing/ ]
@sohkamyung leaf baths sound nice
@dantheclamman Just be careful which leaves you use to bathe with. In Australia, don't use those from the gympie gympie. 🙂
@sohkamyung omg that's an evil plant
@sohkamyung of course Australia has boss level nettles
@sohkamyung adorable 😍
@noctiluca Thanks. :-)
