Taken in McRitchie Park, Singapore

Simpoh Air

Simpoh Air is a large shrub to tree with large glossy green leaves, cheery yellow flowers and pink star-shaped 'fruits'.

Taken in Bukit Batok Nature Park, Singapore.

The large leaves of the Simpoh air were used to wrap food such as tempeh (fermented soyabean cakes), or formed into shallow cones to contain traditional "fast food" such as rojak.
