Monitor lizard attacks baby girl in Malaysia

News Bandit

Recommended Posts

This is a dreadful thing to have happened.


Many years ago I spend most of my two years National Service, in the army, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The usual habit was to walk around with just a towel draped around one's waist in the basha (hut), because of the heat and humidity. On day I opened my personal locker, which had a shelf at eye level, and the biggest lizard I had ever seen leapt straight out onto my bare shoulder. I don't know what the then world record was for a standing high jump but, although never very athletic, even in my youth, I must have been close to it. It rapidly scurried away and escaped via the wall and ceiling, obviously very scared! Not as frightened as me however!!  Ever after that, I always made sure I had closed the locker carefully and also opened it at arms length. The other three lads in the billet thought it was a scream.


Happy days. I had quite s few pints of the local  beer later in the evening. Just to settle my nerves of course!

I was with a barfine in Balikpapan in Indonesian Borneo a few years back and we walked to the bar at the hotel. A water lizard about 7 foot long ran across a pond and the owners dogs starting barking. The girl froze and then went hysterical. After I calmed her down and took her back to our room I found out it was the dogs she was scared of.

As much as I love all things Australian, I got to get me action of the asian persuasian.

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
