I asked my GF about this, she’s spent most of her life farming at the family place on Mt Batur
Chilli, Beans, corn etc. but they have a heap of coconut trees which she still climbs.
The answer was “It’s the beetle or lightening “
The beetle being rhinoceros beetle.

Bintang, Anker and the occasional Guinness – All good and happy to have the...
