Beauty from the wild

I am not sure what is the name of this plant. Anyone knows? This plant has huge leaves and big yellow flowers. When the flower set, the seeds mature and ...
and this is what you see.
This plant brought back memories of my childhood days. We used to collect the leaves of this plant for sale.  I can't remember how much we had to collect in order to get just 20 cents. The leaves were used to wrap meat, veggie or fish. We were so environmentally friendly at that time.

This is the famous Simpor - national flower of Brunei. It is on the Bru $1.00 note together with the Sultan of B.

Ibans call this plant Buan. It can grow very well - just stick one stem and soon leaves will sprout.
