WW: Back to Pontianak, West Kalimantan

Welcome to Rasau Jaya, Pontianak, West Kalimantan

I was thrilled to go back to Pontianak, West Kalimantan, with the office for a field visit to one of the sustainable palm oil plantations in the area.
Have you visited a palm plantation before?

Kalimantan, or many know it as Borneo, is indeed the island of magic.
Its lush green sceneries and its reputation as the lungs of the world have captivated the attention of many and surely it's something that we need to continuously protect.

We visited PT Mitra Aneka Rezeki, one of the companies managed under PT. Pasifik Agro, whose core business is sustainable palm oil. We saw most of the facilities as well as good agricultural practices done by it. We visited the process of producing palm oil and as part of the conservation efforts, each and everyone of us planted the trees in the vacant area near their office. Such an experience indeed. 

We also visited some spots where workers were doing their routines. Many of them are strong women and we discussed a few things with them as well. 

Here are some photos I took during the visit.
Hope you enjoy all the green sceneries here and there.

And here is the view we could enjoy after climbing up the 18-meter fire tower.
We went up with some friends, took pictures and even vlogged.
It's not everyday you have to courage to climb up that high and enjoy the breathtaking scenery, at least for me.
It's so peaceful to see green lines of palm trees dotting the areas.
