Ah! the biodegradable wrapper we used for rojak, fermented soy bean cake or tempeh in the good old days!
- the shrubby Simpoh Ayer, Dillenia suffruticosa.

At the Botanic Gardens, the flowerbuds open at 3am into large yellow flowers by sunrise, until the petals drop off at about 4pm. The red seeds from the open fruit attract birds like the bulbuls.

Also often on the leaves, you can find the big green Stink Bug or its bright red juveniles.

Cheers!
