Tree in Penang

Would this be Garcinia or Eleocarpus ? There are the leaves turning red as telltale signs might be Garcinia cowa ?

Hi Steven,
Flowers look like Kopsia which has withering red leaves too.
Kopsia flavida, Penang Sloe has white flowers. Family: Apocynaceae.
Kopsia singapurensis has a red throat.
Cheers!

This other row of fig trees behind Gurney Drive along Jn Kelawi and planted also at some places along the roadside ? Rather quaint wonder if trimmed on purpose or is its natural shape.
