About Me

So, basically this blog was started by envy. Kulam Ikan Tetangga (the neighbor's fish pond) is a variation to the saying that goes "the neighbor's Grass is always greener". The Neighbor's Fish Pond will always have fatter and more fish (than your own fishpond). And so it is.

My baby girl develops this fascination on lizards since early on. House lizards. I think her first word was "Chak" for 'Cicak'. She has keen eyes for them too. She can immediately spot one on a wall or ceiling 10 meters away. I haven't figured out the reason behind this fascination. Perhaps because house lizards is something she often saw in her first months of life, when she hadn't learn to sit up straight.

I stumbled upon this article via socmed this afternoon, "Real Flying Dragon Discovered in Indonesia". It's actually a wild lizard, with membranes growing on the side of its body to help it glide from trees to trees. Like squirrels. The flying ones I mean.

Colorful little buggers.

I have nothing against lizards, except for their innate ability to get inside my half-drunk mug of coffee or chocolate. Or their tendency to jump and fall on you just when you unsuspectedly and innocently were just opening a door. The big fat ones love to do that. And they seem to love to give you a heart attack when they fall right on your face/neck. Or the fact that they tend to take a dump on your opened lap top, or phone, or books, or your hair...

Oh, I found one of the buggers dead in a box of chocolate powder I like to make into warm drink. I hope it died in ecstasy. The house also had, once, a mummified house lizard half sticking out the power fuse box. It looked so ... gothic like. The mummy stayed where it was for nearly a year. And then humidity won.

Back to this dragonette species. I think my baby girl would love them.
