To me, it looks like a ficus of some sort. Same as the kind I have, with the spots on the bark. I cant remember what type.
Im sure youll get a better answer during the day Wink

Need ID for This Tree

I don't believe it's a Ficus. It appears to have compound leaves. You say the flowers are something like cherry blossoms? It doesn't look like a member of the Rosaceae, either.

From this picture is sure looks like a member of the Sapindaceae family – here in the US we often call this the soapberry family but in Indonesia you would likely be more familiar with other members of the family such as litchi and rambutan. I’m certain that Iris is right that this is not a cherry or a close relative because of its compound leaves. Your description of the flowers as sakura-like though together with these leaves sure seems like something in the Sapindaceae. I wish I could give you a more precise identification, but this is such young material and there are many possibilities.
