Give up? This is actually a place for people to do light exercise. It also serves as a hibiscus garden for people to know about the varieties of the flower. It is located between the Stadium and Parit Dobi (the infamous big drain).

I believe these are hibiscus too, but grown in clusters. I am no botanist, so if I have mis-identified the flower, feel free to leave your comments and I will make the adjustment.

Edit: This is Kock’s Bauhinia. Scientific name is Bauhinia kockiana. It is also a creeper and originate from Peninsular Malaysia. Thanks to Lulu for the tip.
