Hi Steven,
It's Geophila repens (Rubiaceae) red fruits, white flowers, creeping on ground under trees; in Fort Canning Park and surroundings, Chinatown, Havelock Rd, SGH etc..
Cheers

Thanks Angie,
So this is the fella, isnt is native and one time very uncommon or endangered ?
Sounds like plenty these days.. :thumbsup:
The park is definitely a jewel storehouse for trees that have aged quite a bit !
