Bitoon

Bitoon tree is quite common along seashores and I always mistake it for talisay tree because of its leaves. In Samal Island, I saw people gather several leaves, presumably to be used as folk medicine.

One could also note that not all trees would shed pretty and relatively big flowers with lots of dark pink stamens that you won’t be able to resist in picking them up.
