Singapore has been blooming with pink trumpet flowers this week and it's beautiful. 

Commonly known as the "sakura" of Singapore, the scientific name of the pink trumpet flower is Tabebuia rosa. It is native to the American tropics but planted in Singapore for its shade. Now, it is more than just functional, it is also pretty too!

Here are a closeup of the flower:
