    I hope someone who grows orchids in that part of the world will chime in. It reminds me a bit of a pholidota...you might look for pix of those...

    Perhaps Pholidota imbricata.

    Definitely not Pholidota imbricata, which has a pendulous spike. This plant looks like a Dendrobium, just not the spike, time will tell if we see some flowers.

    Now i can see the plant better, not a Dendro at all. Sure looks like a Pholidota, hopefully somebody can help out.
