I knocked at each of their door

I left home at 6:45 am as usual. I left home, and I went knocking at others' door.


"Knock, knock, knock. Is anybody home?"


The owner of this first one was not around, but had hung a message telling that "Go shopping at nearby supermarket. Will be back soon". I could not calibrate its "soon" with my "soon", so I just moved on.

"Knock, knock, knock. Is anybody home?"

The second one seemed to be an empty home with the signboard telling "to let/for rent".

My journey continued and I met the third one. The owner must have some knowledge on Chinese "Feng Shui". It has its home to enjoy the sunrise and lake view everyday. Somehow, it never left any message on its whereabouts.

I met this last one while following the chirping sounds to locate some birds atop a tree. The spider seemed to have an early nap after a heavy break first. I did not knock at the door. It was not locked.

I moved away quietly in order not to disturb him.

So I left Cerok Tokun and went home. I did not knock at my door. I just pressed the doorbell button.

"Ding Dong."

My wife opened the door. My family was at home, waiting for me to come back, and same to my little pet dog.

Seeing family is much better than seeing spiders, but spiders are fun to watch. It must have been a good adventure to go visit each of those spider houses.

Hi, "Knock, Knock, are you there grandma? This is Little Red Riding Hood!" Luckily you didn't encounter any wolf during your trip to the woods. It is always nice when you reach the doorway and family members welcome you home with a smile.

It was very nice of you to stop by your neighbor's while on your hike. I'm sorry most of them were not home, but I like your pictures. I am glad your family let you in when you returned home.
