Not tadpoles? 7 January 2010

Friday afternoon.
We went to dpc park after hearing aunty J spotted some frogspawn. Unfortunately, we couldn't locate any. I used a tiffin to scoop some tadpoles (which I thought was tadpoles) and some algae with water snail on it. Happily, I thought we could observe the life cycle of frog again.  

En trying to fish with her self made rod.
I found a shady place, sat down and went into deep thoughts while En&Hui played by the brook. En came over and asked what I was doing. I told her I was thinking about life. She said, " me too". Naturally, the next question from me would be, "What is on your mind? " En added ' I can't tell you, I think of it everyday and you will know it when I grow up'. !!!!!  

Hui cooked with the stinky water from the brook. Just like what I did when I was a child.

When dad came home at night, he said that those are  fishes and not tadpoles !! 
The next morning, I told En about it. She replied 'Yeah tadpole's head is big and black'. My jaw dropped, I asked 'Why didn' t you tell me yesterday ?' Oh man! This is embarassing. ;p

Water level has to be low to see the toad spawn. Try check out in the morning when the water flow to the brook is shut.
