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.

*sniff sniff*

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.
