Is this a tailorbird? Singapore Botanic Gardens

Could anyone tell me what this very small bird (about 10cm) is? The photo was taken around noon, 21 May, in the Singapore Botanic Gardens. My guess is a tailorbird but I am new to this birding business so I need help.

Nice to have spotted this small guy and gotten a picture.

Welcome to the Bird Forum!

PS - here's another picture of one - similar cocked tail, light colored legs, large beak!
