A humongous black hairy scorpion suddenly crawled out of my E200K. The sound of me sweeping pieces of freshly cut grass and other debris from the new flooring of our garage probably had startled it.
I immediately called Syafiq who came running to catch the arachnid.
"I'm scared...it is so big!"
"There's nothing to be scared of. Just snip off its sting and you'll be all right."
He then did just that and soon the scorpion was in his terrarium.
Without its sting and poison gland, it was no more a risk to anyone. In fact it became a curio with Amalia's classmates who came during our Eid open house.
A pair of very friendly squirrels, like always played catch-me-if-you-can with one another over the fence.
They were so cuddly..oh how I wish they would allow us to hold and caress their velvetty fur.
Up a tall coconut tree three or more hornbills were busy playing. I was always amazed at how these once-deep-forest birds were able to adapt and adopt themselves to the sub-urban to urban environment.
I guess they were very happy to live in between us knowing very well that nobody here would go out and hunt them.
'Stocking', our cat was busy frolicking around with his newly found girlfriend, our neighbour's queen. We were glad that now Stocking was no more a pushover for that darn old tomcat that had been harassing him around.
Strangely, they became close pals now...I mean they did not fight as mush as before and Stocking sometimes would lie around just a few feet away from it under our cars.
