The Pied Fantail malay name (Murai Gila) fits its character perfectly, a very skittish bird, jumping around the branches with its tail fanning out..
Murai in malay basically describe a blackish bird with a beautiful voice and Gila means mad.

normally I found it stays under shady trees, overgrown bushes near water.
