Hi. Your little friend looks to be a huntsman spider, a few species throughout Asia and not certain which. They can be fast if spooked, A challenge to catch by hand, no threat to you though.
Got cockroaches, These run them down and eat them. Worth having one about.
Your huntsman may get 12 CM across the legs, just a lot of leg.
