Friendly Neighbourhood

By: Garrick Liw and Lee Lin Hui

Our home away from home has always had a special relationship with Mother Nature. The abundance of trees and plants here not only add to the scenery, but also nest many terrifying (as many squeamish residents would readily testify) creatures which are not afraid of playing Peek-a-boo. I am sure we are all well-acquainted with some of them:

Watch where you are stepping!

no salt please!

 The next time you leave your room, pay more attention to the walls along the corridor: you will realise our neighbours are closer than you think. These areas hold a special attraction for those wild bugs of the forest, and it can be unpleasant when they decide to make a spectacular appearance that never fails to make our hearts skip a beat or two.

sorry you are?

sorry you are?

you hear my call everyday... :P

 However, the real drama only unfolds when swarms of insects, in the spirit of neighbourliness, pay us a visit. Unfortunately, we are usually not as hospitable as they had hoped for. Screams and exclamations of “OH MY” and “WHAT THE” fill the air in manner of greeting to our uninvited, non-human guests. Soon enough, fatal fumes erupting from Baygon and Shieldtox cans end the ill-fated visit in tragedy as our friends fall to the ground writhing in the throes of death. All because we pressed the button and went on a killing spree.

Be gone! Death to all!!

Be gone! Death to all!!

Sometimes, our lives are put in danger and we are forced to respond. For example, what would you do if you see this:


Scream for help (and then faint)? Use the nearest Baygon spray? Grab the broom? (Just in case you are wondering, the spider pictured here is REAL and was found in a room in KE7.)

Dear ladies and gentlemen of KE7, enjoy your stay here and embrace these creatures near you. Remember, live and let live! Where possible…

    I saw one in CD block before once. But it’s really harmless. Just brush it away with a broom or something.
