As soon as I got back home from out of town I heard this constant screaming day and night from the neighbor's Siamang. It's a type of gibbon. I feel like living near the jungle or something. I have no idea which neighbor has it, but it's only since a couple of days ago. My hunch is the one with a huge plot of land near by, as it sounds from that area.

If I am not mistaken, siamang is an endangered species, so probably it is illegally obtained. Then again, it's Indonesia, where every thing goes. We are also guilty of having a kakaktua that someone gave us a while back. Mom and I are talking about giving it to one of the zoo, while joking that as soon as the kakaktua entered that zoo's cage, he is going to gnaw its cage toward freedom just as he neatly did several times at our place.
With the sound of siamang, kakaktua, rooster and chicks around all day, it doesnt feel like I am living in the middle of metropolitan city, which is kinda great in a way. But no, I still think we should give our kakaktua away.
