I saw this vine flower growing near my sister's school in Mabuhay Street. I immediately guessed that it is a relative of the passion flower but I cannot find similar images in the net. Finally a friend recognized it as a passion flower variety a native to Central and South America. The fruit of the plant is also edible!
