I heard from many to buy the ambonese cookies (with Kenari or Bagea) at Petak Sembilan but at some point it is just bit too far from my hotel so I went instead to stalls in the gang to Mardika (next to Citra Supermarket). The tastes are horrible, there's a taste of kerosene in it. I got some cookies as gifts from my parent's friends and turn out to be way better than what I bought. They bought it at Petak Sembilan. So whatever you do take your time and go to Petak Sembilan. It taste better, it wrapped better, and it has no kerosene taste in it.

Luggage and bags: Make sure you don't travel between islands with big bags. Less is better. Smaller is better or even better if you use sort of mountainpack especially if you have to take ships.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Ambon can be seriously superbly warm...so wear something white t-shirt or something loose...Sunscreen seriously needed and don't forget to bring hat with you.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Surprising enough...even the worst hotel has a good sanitation when it comes to clean toilet. But be prepare with squat toilet. So bring your own tissues.
Make sure you buy enough anti Malaria tablet from home or if you forget then take Riboquin or nivaquin (anything with Choloroquin 150Mg in it). And just do it according your doc's suggestion. Really good if you already take the medicine 4 days in consecutively before to Ambon or other Lease Islands. I also bring along wet tissues for cleaning and refresh the face once in a while.
Miscellaneous: Mosquito reppelent is good to have! Buy Autan or just buy the electric repellent at local supermarket (baygon is good brand).

If you are in the city of Ambon, near the Rumpius Monument,
you will find the "Pustaka Rumpius" (library) near the great Catholic Cathedral.
If you are interested in the History of Amboina,
take the time and ask for to see the reprints of the historic
"Amboinisch Kruidboek - Beschrieyving van demeest bekende Boomen, Heesters, Kruiden, Land- en Waterplanten die Men in Amboina....."
of Georgius Everhardus Rumphius, here when we visitet that place at 2007. Here kindly hold and friendly explaint by Mr. M.S.C. De Sol.
Another picture shows a flower of Ambon maybe an orchid name Susana...
Around in the office is a table of G.E.Rumpius.
