Photographed Butterflies in Dec 2103

...still searching the name of the butterfly above

Mangrove tree nymph butterfly in 
Pachliopta aristolochiae asteris Common Rose 
or Papilio iswara iswara?
 Two butterflies, (female and male?)
...photographed in the  Bukit Timah nature reserves along jungle paths while they were feeding on flowering plants.
...male one always prettier, right? 
so this should be male butterfly.
They wrere flying erratically up and down sunlit paths... 
flying from flowers to flowers, feeding on the red flowers...
