I also managed to take some photos of some beautiful plants including the pink Etlingera elatior (Common Name: Torch Ginger), Elaeocarpus angustifolia, Kopsia singapurensis, unknown Heliconia and Costus, Scaphium macropodum, Brachychiton acerifolius.
On a separate note, one of the key characteristics of the Dipterocarpaceae Family is the presence of interpetiolar stipules on the young leaves.
There were also other interesting fauna, such as a spider and lizard, captured on my camera.
