Tropical Fruits

Rambutan (Nephelium lappaceum)

According to popular belief and the origin of its name, rambutan is native to Indonesia and Malaysia. The earliest record of rambutan trees show that they were cultivated by the Malayan jungle tribes around their temporary settlements, a practice followed to date. Rambutan trees grow naturally in Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines, and elsewhere in Southeast Asia, although its precise natural distribution is unknown. It is closely related to several other edible tropical fruits including the lychee, longan, and mamoncillo. It is native to the Indonesian Archipelago, from where it spread westwards to Thailand, Burma, Sri Lanka and India; northwards to Vietnam, and the Philippines.

Ancient crater in West Java

Kamojang Crater; 

Kamojang, popularly known as Kawah Kamojang or (the Kamojang crater), is a geothermal field and tourist spot in West Java, Indonesia. The crater is located in sub-district (kecamatan) Ibun in the Bandung Regency, approximately 45 km to the southeast of Bandung through the towns of Majalaya and Ibun. The crater can also be reached from the opposite direction through the town of Garut, in Garut Regency (the distance by road from Garut to the northwest through the township of Samarang is around 25 km).

The volcano that the crater is located on is Mount Guntur but the crater itself is listed as an active volcano of Indonesia because of its geothermal activities.

Indonesia is the largest archipelago in the world comprising 13,487 islands, therefore it is also called the archipelago. According to the United Nations correction in 2008, Indonesia is the fourth longest coastal area country in the world after the United States (U.S.), Canada and Russia. Long coastline of Indonesia stood at 95 181 km. So do not be surprised if Indonesia has a number of beautiful beaches. Here is an example of coastal areas, shown on this page, and will be added at any time, if I got a photo-recent photos on other beautiful beaches.

Dendrobium Hybrid

Plumeria (flower inside the water drops)



A dragonfly is an insect belonging to the order Odonata, the suborder Epiprocta or, in the strict sense, the infraorder Anisoptera (from Greek ανισος anisos, "uneven" + πτερος pteros, "wings", because the hindwing is broader than the forewing). It is characterized by large multifaceted eyes, two pairs of strong transparent wings, and an elongated body. Dragonflies can sometimes be mistaken for damselflies, which are morphologically similar; however, adults can be differentiated by the fact that the wings of most dragonflies are held away from, and perpendicular to, the body when at rest. Dragonflies possess six legs (like any other insect), but most of them cannot walk well. Dragonflies are among the fastest flying insects in the world. (source: Wikipedia)
