    the last time that i was treated to a firefly spectacle was at Lim Chu Kang Hill about 6-7 yrs back during my reservist.

    lots of them back then and so pretty.

    Yes, Tekong. Was on a night mission, walking around until shacked like siao then saw those. Initial impression was that I am seeing stars after the day's activities. I thought "this time see stars, siao liao!"

    then i realised that they were fireflies.

    anyway, you can take a look up north. KL area or Kota Tinggi got firefly tours. they put you in a boat, go to some mangrove area and the place is filled with those buggers. i have personally never been on those tours. just read abt them.

    anyone been on those tours?
