I don't think Macs are cauliflorous, and I don't believe they would do well in the humidity of Thailand.

But I am curious as to the nut identity, so here's a bump.

My first guess was Hicksbeachia sp ( bopple nut)because of the cauliflory, but those live in Australia so i edited the.coment and write just macadamia.Its clearely from that family,probably even a type of Gevuina.               
EDIT- its a Helicia sp. ,one of the 7 species that grows in Thailand.

Macs do ok with humidity and rain, there are tons of them growing on Hawaii, including right in the Hilo area.

I thought they just grew on the dry side, good to know they can weather the weather.

I never knew the genus was so large, that's a diverse family of plants (proteaceae).

I never made the connection between Banksia and Mac nuts.

Impressive what you can learn on this site.
