When I lived in Brunei, I never gave our resident cicaks much thought. A cicak is a type of gecko. They live inside houses all over SE Asia, eating insects and walking on walls with their sticky feet. They also make a clicking sound, which is one of the most familiar sounds of my childhood.
You know you are homesick when you even miss the sounds of home.
Anyway, in my flat in London I also have a resident cicak.
Look, here he is, looking at my latest Amazon delivery.
