@ Shouming.... I mistook or wrongly acknowledge this tree's leafs are smaller. In fact they are well in bigger size.

Thanks AshishNimkar, but this is NOT the tree, it is a 10m tall tree, the powder puff like flower is about 12'' in diameter. the fruit is a square diamond sharp pod, is about 8'' across.. the one you mention is our tropical fruits, which is very much smaller in size.
