I think it looks more like Grey-backed Shrike considering the location as well.

Many thanks for your kind comment. After examine some photos of Long-tailed Shrikes ringed in Kachin, i can say you are right. Despite the tiny white wing patch, tricolor should not show that much grey in the back. Thanks again for point this out
