Having to move to a new neighborhood allows one to hear strange noises at night.
The first night we moved in, the night was full of cricket sound. Although it was not a strange noise, hearing cricket in a well developed housing area was however rare. We welcomed the sound though – it reminded on the sound we used to listen when we visit some of our relatives in a kampong in Tanjung Malim. The night seems more relaxed and serene.
Then some of my neighbors started to move in as well. The cricket sound was still there but now added with dog barking sound. Thankfully the neighbor that has the noisy dogs is a good 10 houses away from my house so the barking is heard in the “distance”. I felt pity for their immediate neighbors though, having to put up with the constant barking day and night.
Once in a while, I would hear baby cries but having my son shouting and crying made us almost immune to the baby crying sound.
But this morning, I heard the strangest sound I have ever heard after moving in here – the sound of a rooster crowing. First I dismissed it as noises coming from my sleepy head but after several times listening to it, it was confirmed that it was a sound of rooster crowing and it was coming from the outside.
Don’t tell that some of the neighbors are rearing chickens as well. Damn!
