A goat horns gilded usually released into the jungle island Fireworks successful or if a request had been answered.
The first time you set foot on the island of flowers, be careful because the monkey's pretty aggressive pretty, secure the small stuff because the monkey likes nyamperin goods visitors. Now, let's not hijacked by the same monkeys that we should prepare snacks for them, such as beans, bananas, etc.. Unfortunately the local governments seem less attention and care for this island, it proved increasingly squalid Flower Island because a lot of junk stuck, let alone fit very wet rainy season. Many guides there are also wild, they like ngikutin we explore the island, they finally asked for money from us. But even then Island Kembang really fun to visit.
