What's That Sound?

Last night or should I say, early dawn.. not sure of time but I heard some "scraping sound"... it jerked me up from my sleep... I ignored it, trying to get back to sleep but I couldn't... the "Sound" kept coming back and plucking up my courage, I looked out from my window to the balcony....

Nothing.... then I went to toilet and made the flushing sound, hoping to scare "whatever" is out there... but the sound came back again once I laid myself down on the bed... Feeling dissatisfied, I got downstairs and looked for Labbie, hoping that she was the one who made the sounds of "digging" and "scraping."  But she was sleeping peacefully....

Well, until this morning, I could not find out what the sound is... I don't see anything wrong anywhere..

Oh...oh.... don't tell me that the TERMITES were doing all the "Sounds" that I heard?  ahhhhhh.....

  5. Don't tell me the termites are back to take revenge. Anyway, don't scare yourself. Could be tikus or cat making the scratching sound.

  7. My ex-landlady's house in Johor was infested with termites. She failed to get rid of them no matter how many times those termites busters were called to her house. The most affected room was the room which I stayed for 2 years. Living with termites wasn't scary but listening to the digging and scraping sound every night was a real torture. I always wondered if the ceilling or beam would one day fall onto me and smash me to spine. Not trying to scare you but you must take it seriously and solve the problem before it causes further irreparable damage to your house..
