Late night visitor last week.

She sauntered off when she saw us, but not before chomping off several bluepea vines and leaving little molehills of poop behind.

Found this huge snake skin in the garden couple of weeks ago. More scary than seeing the actual snake. My imagination is working overtime, turning the hypothetical snake into a 2-headed hydra that spits radioactive venom.

Barber Boon gives the best haircuts. 

He came to Port Dickson with faithful doggy companion, Not-A (named for his house-call/home salon service ‘Not A Salon’). We went to a super secret deserted beach, and Not-A saw the sea for the first time. 

Vulcan salute! Now I just need a pair of pointy ears. 

After more than a month in KL trying (and failing) to change the ruling regime, we are finally back in Port Dickson. We found: 

1. Animals had made themselves at home behind the art. 

2. Someone had magically cleared up that massive fallen nangka tree!!! (Turns out it was our dear gardener who dropped by while we were away)

3. The mint has flourished beyond my wildest hopes. 

4. Faded propaganda lying on our front porch. 

Snails having sex on our front porch last night. Fucking exhibitionists. 
Cue lots of googling about #snailsex. Surprising number of snail and slug porn videos on YouTube. 
Not as surprising as the number of comments from people turned on by snail sex: ‘I have an erection’, ‘I came at 4.03’, ‘Anyone else get horny watching this?’
My favorite title: ‘Snails having sex. IN REAL TIME’. 
Here’s Isabella Rossellini to teach you more about the sex lives of snails:

On today’s Tanjung Tuan trek, we were so gung-ho we went up to the lighthouse twice. The second time round I almost stepped on a scorpion. We’d just seen some monkeys walking in procession on the electric wires. I got excited and was yapping away to Zedeck when I happened to look down and there he was at my feet, right in the middle of the road. He was so shiny and deep blue-green that I thought he was a piece of plastic.

He was not a piece of plastic.

And then on the steps to the lighthouse, again, uncomfortably close to my soft human feet, I spotted the dark brown snake. She was curled up and enjoying a dose of morning sunshine. The light made her look like a bronze sculpture. 

All of the faunas! It made me happy. But by that time I was ready to get off the hill.

In case you’re wondering, yes, I screamed like a ninny: ‘Ahhhhh! What the fuck!!’ - BOTH TIMES.

The Mysterious Musang King Part Deux

Because of the overly-fecund nangka, we’ve been getting a lot of visits from our friendly neighbourhood musang. You can just about see him there, crouching over and tugging at a half-rotten fruit.

There was a smaller musang tagging along — perhaps an anak musang. Nice to see that the jackfruit tree is letting our wildlife raise families.

When I approached they ran up the tree. Here is anak musang, staring into the camera flash:

And here’s Pingu, oblivious to my excitement, licking up the last bits of his wet tuna dinner:

Pingu murders snakes and gives no fux.

Hark! A snake

Encounters with fauna continue at Lot 1699.

Couple of weeks ago, we found the cats ganging up on a snake in the shed. Damn murderers were lucky it was a harmless tree snake. Nanti bagi lu black cobra baru tau!

I’m not big on snakes (in fact I’ve been dreading finding one in the house), but look! It is very pretty.

It had this amazing subtle metallic gold-green sheen, like eyeshadow. (I’m on a make-up kick at the moment)

Glad we rescued her in time. So long and slim she is.

Just stay out of the house, snake! It’s all I ask.
