Possibly Adenocalymna comosum.

The parts were having the milky I believe.

Seems to be a close relative of Allamada cathartica of Apocynaceae..
If the latex was absent..
Based on the calyx structure, an equal chance to any member of family Bignoniaceae.

Anyway.. The flowers are marvelous.!

Any possibility of Dolichandra unguis-cati of Bignoniaceae familly?

Could be a Bignonia species but not B.unguis-coti (wherein you can see three stipular hooks for climbing)

Adenocalymma comosum (Cham.) DC.  as per another thread: Ranjini Kamath

This should be Adenocalymna comosum
