"a caterpillar doesn't just grow into a butterfly. a caterpillar must undergo metamorphosis, and a cocoon is where a caterpillar risks it all: enters total chaos, undergoes total rebuilding, and is born to a new way of living. only in taking the risk of entering that inert cocoon can the caterpillar go from dormancy to potency, from ugliness to beauty."

do you think this is a water hose?

august 4, 2007 | saturday
some snake shed off about 1.5 meters of skin and left it behind in a corner of our yard.

current whereabouts of the said snake: unknown! we reckon it just passed by our territory; the skin's orientation seem to suggest that the snake eventually went out of our gate. needless to say, of this, we couldn't be sure.

we didn't see the snake. we only saw what it left behind -- the skin it shed off.

ho-hum. i should say kiber... but... but... ah wah, i don't like snakes.

note: click here for more photos.


  1. at least sa gawas sa inyong balay.

    ang akong dormmate jud, nakakita ug snake skin sa ilalum sa iyang bed!


    very true but they did not know the whereabouts of the snake too! as in wla silay kalibutan, roomie di ay nila ang bitin…hadlok.

  2. it couldn't have gotten inside the house... and there's nothing under any of the beds except the floor. :)

  3. It surely look like a water hose. But looks could be deceiving.

    I don’t like snakes of all. Aside from being dangerous, its slithery nature is just too eeky for me.
