Hi Gan,
Can this be Baccaurea angulata, Tampoi Belimbing?
Cheers

Mr Yap KF id this as Baccaurea scortechinii (Chinese Lantern Tree, Rambai Tikus)

Well, well, well! The small tree is Baccaurea scortechinii (Chinese Lantern Tree, Rambai Tikus). The Baccaurea spp. have been moved from Euphorbaceae to Phyllanthaceae. The attached pictures were taken at Taman Negara, Pahang, June 07, 2002.
