For two nights already these little green insects swarmed my house. It is a yearly affair, happening around this time of the year. And those farking tiny green thing bites and it is damn itchy.
So, on the first night, I switched off my lights, turned on the aircond and closed the door and worked in darkness. But my son who was playing games in the living room had the lights on and the next morning….
My little boy was going out of our bedroom when we woke up.
“MOMMY!!!!! SO MANY MOSKITOOOOSSSSS!!!!!”
Mommy knows he is very sissy and afraid of any insects.
“Haiyar, insects only, nevermind go to the kitchen and get your cocopops.”
“MOMMY!!!!! I CANNOT WALK!!!!! SO MANY MOSKITOOOOOSSSSSSS!!!!!!”
“What cannot walk lah.” *thinking to self, sei lor, so pondan jor, I spoilt him too much*
“REAL WAN….YOU COME AND SEE!!!!”
“Wait first, mommy must wear eye (contact lenses) first.”
And fulamak!!! The floor, the sofa, the table, the unfolded laundry all covered with the darn insects. It took me several rounds of cleaning before I could sweep them up.
And last night, I warned my eldest son already. If he still leave the lights on all over the living room and attract the insects to come in, I am going to sweep them and cook rice for him to eat.
He said, “What? You want me to go blind playing in the dark?”
Me, “I don’t care wor, at least I don’t need to sweep those cilaka insects.”
And the solution was, we left one light at a corner on so they swarmed over there. I will wait for my housekeeper to kautim that corner.
So, Penangites, does your house get these insects? They only come after midnight. I wonder how many nights more before the whole colony is dead.
