Dear Tsuh Yang Chen,
>From my interest point of view, there is the wild form (according to A. Hay) 
of Cyrtosperma merkusii (used to be C. ferox), there is Podolasia stipitata, 
and Lasia spinosa, and, I`m sure other collectable aroids!  I hope to have 
short notes on two of the above up and published on the net before you leave.  
 If you`d like, let me know and I could mail you collecting localities for the 
plants I mentioned above. Good luck!
