Sa wakas ....

... nahuli din ng asawa ko ang ahas na ilang buwan na akong tini-terrorize dito sa bahay namin! Twice, gumapang sa screen sa may dirty kitchen namin (nung second time, nakita ko sya 2:30am, karipas ako ng takbo sa kwarto para gisingin si hubby at nag-hyperventilate to the max ako!) at nakapasok pa ang kalahati ng katawan nya in between ng bubong at dingding! Twice, naitaboy ng asawa ko at ang matapang kong 12 year old using a lighted candle at Raid mala-blow torch. Nag-retreat ang kumag pero after a few months, bumalik na naman!

That third time, napansin na lang ni hubby na naka-coil dun sa may ledge sa may kisame almost tapat na tapat ng ulo nya habang nandun sya sa may sink! Ni-try nilang hulihin with a kind of tong na mahaba pero dumulas at nakalabas ulit.

Finally, kahapon ng madaling araw, around 3:30 am, nagkahulan ang mga aso sa garahe. Pag silip ni hubby, andun ang ahas naka-coil sa floor at may yakap-yakap na daga. Nyaaah!

Na-trap nya using the front part na grill ng industrial fan namin tapos pinatungan ng kiddie stool at mabigat na bakal. Nung medyo maliwanag na, nag-McGyver etong asawa ko ng pang-silo using an old antenna pole at mahabang steel wire. (Notice blurred ang photo kasi nanginginig kamay ko hahaha)



Ay basta, na-catch nya yung ulo through the grills tapos saka tinanggal yung takip then inabot pa ng ilang minutes bago naisilid sa isang empty 5 gallon bottle ng mineral water. Pramis, nginig ang kamay ko (with matching sigaw-sigaw lalo na nung nag-uncoil at nakita kong lampas 1 meter ang haba nya!!!!) habang vini-video yung panghuhuli.



Nung dumating ang kids from school, pinakita namin yung footage at hagalpakan sila ng tawa sa mga comments ko habang nagvi-video. Alaskado na naman ako :p Gusto i-upload ng mga mokong sa youtube kaso saka na pag naka-dsl na kami kasi baka abutin ng 24 oras pag-upload pa lang.

Ang tanong, saan kaya pwede ibigay yung ahas na yun???? Andun pa rin sya sa bote ng mineral water sa likod bahay at natatakot akong makawala!

Hello, Ruth! It's been a couple nights since I read both of your recent blogs about this snake that your hubby caught...it's really a hair raising experience for you, huh! Anyways, just thinking about it gives me a goosebumps!!! Eversince I read the blogs, it was giving me nightmares...well, it's not your fault! I found it rather fascinating! I hate snakes as much as you do! Lately, I've been dreaming about it all the time! People said, if you dream about snakes, someone will stab you behind your back or in other words, betray you! That's why, you have to tell your dream so it won't happen...anyways, good blog! Keep it going! Btw, I went to school with your husband at PCU, tell him I said "hello!". Ingat!

Hi Sharae,

Iiiks, sorry you got scared enough to have nightmares about it. But we really had bad experiences with snakes here in our current home.

The worst one was last year. You can read about it (if you want lang) in the Jan or Feb ata 2007 archive. Mas kaloka yun!

Thanks for visiting my blog. Noy sends his regards :)
