this morning at home, i spent a great deal of time chasing this fly that had magically appeared, and was leisurely cruising low and resting once in a while on the floor. it wasn't the 'aggressive' type...wasn't technically bothering me or anything. but in my past life, i may have been a professional insect exterminator who dearly loved and took pride in my work.

i gave my chasing a rest when i was already drying my hair...but then the fly probably had a death wish for it kept intruding my personal space. nooooo don't know me, mister (or miss). it is my mission to kill things like you. i have mastered the skill of hand- clench-catching a mosquito and would risk my own life inhaling poison by following a cockroach with sprays of insecticide.

i...vina...*grabs my slipper*annihilate things like you with passion.
*smaaaaack!* there goes my slipper on the floor.

just like that, the fly met its bloody end. it died an instant death and did not feel any pain (it's a different story for roaches...i prefer that they suffer).

and to set me apart from other so-called professional insect exterminators, i lovingly cleaned up the mess - with tissue and all-purpose cleaner/disinfectant.

now, if only i can do the same thing to the wonderful, adorable, loveable drivers and pedestrians of manila.

Hahaha that's a very typical story. Poor 'bangaw', and so if given another life, I would not like to become a fly.

Baka galing sa CR nyo yan. Jokes. As for croaches, I LIKE TO SEE THEM DIE UNDER MY SLIPPERS!

I hate insects! That's one reason I like winter since you can never find insects roaming around or they will freeze!

I am curious. Last year, a Singaporean blogger told how she had killed a lizard in her house. Do you get lizards in the Philippines?
