This mangrove came as an surprise, since I was more of expecting a coastal plant forest vegetation during this trip with PY at one of the Northern shores.
Looks like this most widely planted tree in Singapore, Albizia saman or the rain tree has found its way here too.
Rather common coastal plants, Pouteria obovata (Update: Looks like the genus have changed to Planchonella),
My suspicions were confirmed after seeing a larger tree,
And another, Aphanamixis polystachya. This endangered tree has managed to regenerate back successfully in many disturbed forests here.
This is my first time seeing the seashore morning glory, Ipomoea pes-caprae climbing.
After walking awhile down the coastline, we saw this small river cutting through, and wala~ mangroves!
I did not really pay close attention to many of the mangrove diversity there, but I registered some common ones like Avicennia alba, A. rumphiana and Bruguiera cylindrica.
Several stands of Nipah palm, Nypa fruiticans were also there.
The Dungun, Heritiera littoralis, has shiny bronze underside leaves. It is rather common here.
And lastly, probably the find of my day, a Hoya climber, probably Hoya latifolia.
