Hi Karen, Thanks for the welcome. It may be a close relative..it resembles also Laburnum. Because of the lipped structure it may be Papilionaceae ..Still hunting :)

Hi Jyothi & welcome to Project Noah!
I hadn't realized the spotting was made in Malaysia when i made my suggestion but this looks like Senna to me so if it isn't s. hebecarpa I would say it is a close relative.
