Hi, welcome to Permies!  Do you know if it came from a tree or a shrub?  What part of the world do you live in?  That could help narrow it down.

Heya Mike! Thank you for replying. Appreciate it alot! Iam from Singapore. I found this laying on the roadside though most probably from a tree thats around.

Could this be from Terminalia catappa? (indian almond tree)

No problem!  Hopefully the folks that know those plants will see this shortly, I have no idea since I live a bit farther north.

T. catappa looks right (they change color like that), but I can think of other leaves that look similar (jackfruit, for example, which I imagine would also grow in Singapore).
