I put lup on the front of the camera to make it more focus. Any comment and critique welcome.

I'm not sure what you set out to achieve but if it was to capture the water droppletts then you've certainly done that, although a little soft maybe. You can make the droppletts stand out a bit more by slightly increasing the cantrast but only a little and then add vibrance not saturation as it's more subtle. I've made these alterations in the mod.
I think leaves of all kinds make good photographic subjects, Muhamad, and you have the added bonus of some water droplets here, which you have captured with very nice highlights within them.
I don't understand "I put lup on the front of the camera to make it more focus", but you do have areas that are nice and sharp. However, your depth-of-field is quite shallow due to the f2.8 that you used. A smaller aperture would have got more in focus, but this may not have been your intention. It's perfectly acceptable to have shallow dof, but I prefer to see the nearest and/or the largest leaf within the frame in focus, otherwise, because of its nearness and size, it tends to pull the eye.
Also, I feel that if you could have isolated the leaves from those behind it, there would be more impact, and those behind it would have been nicely blurred. You just needed to lift it up carefully, getting some distance between it and the others. With all the other leaves behind your chosen ones, there isn't enough separation.
Alternatively, so that the droplets didn't get disturbed, you could have taken the shot from directly above the leaf, so that you gave yourself a more even plane of focus, with no out-of-focus leaves dominating your frame, but a simple falling off of focus around the ones you chose to focus upon.
Yet another alternative, when you have distractions in your background, is to go in even closer and to fill your frame with just a few leaves and droplets, perhaps using the centre stem to run diagonally from corner to corner.
@Martin: I tried as you said, and yes the water dropplets look more stand out. thank you...

What I mean, It's hard to focus with short distance with my camera phone. So I using lup (fine glasses) to make it focus and I've got the areas that are nice and sharp. I will upload that not using fine glasses.
I would love if I can change the aperture setting. But I can't. But I notes all of your suggestion for my reference in the future. Thank you
That's certainly an interesting method, Muhamad, and it works!
