A mosquito just bit my foot. I always feel compelled to scratch them until they bleed. I am like a child in that regard.
The cockroaches here are huge--they put the ones in Hawaii to shame. There must be a direct correlation between the temperature and the size of the cockroaches.
In more bug news, the ants are out in full force. If you drop a piece of food from the table, come back in 30 minutes and it will be covered. In addition, the little ones bite. Hard. The big ones are grosser but they mainly stay outside.
We went to a pet store today and they had hamsters for sale for P80 (about $1.50). I suggested we buy one and feed it to the pet hawk. I was told I am now becoming a Filipino.
