[004] Aftershocks 餘震

There are certainly less aftershocks recently but you know, the earth might rattle immediately after I post. Everything seems back to normal in Tokyo, no shortage of food, water or toilet papers. The only remnant of the disaster is the dimming of lights in supermarkets and shops. Water supply is also no longer contaminated by iodine131. However we all have to stay vigilant because experts say that a M8 aftershock might hit anywhere on east Japan this year.

On the other hand, my main concern now is insect invasion by 2 bugs:
1) Cockroaches from the opposite vacant room because the previous tenant had fed them too well, now they are seeking new playgrounds. I complained to the dorm manager and she gave me 3 traps to lure them. Currently they are working so-so as many of them were not stuck to the tape. Roaches are much easier to deal with than the one below:

2) Unknown bites caused by either bedbugs or fleas. Not sure which one is it but it seemed to have disappeared after I took my down feather jacket to dry clean and laundered some clothes on Thursday. Currently monitoring if there's any new bites, jumping black dots or crawling bugs on my white bed sheet. I'll be washing everything tomorrow with the sun and checking the mattress! Wish me luck that its not bedbugs! I had enough of that in San Francisco!!!

最近餘震卻是變少了。但不知道會不會我一發完文章後就立刻震! 現在的東京一切回覆正常,水和食物,甚至廁紙都不缺。唯一從地震遺留下來的是為了節電而把燈光調暗的超市和店鋪。水源方面也已經沒有碘131的污染了。可是因為專家警告東日本會在今年再度發生8級餘震,所以大家還是得繼續提高警惕。

除此之外,我目前比較關心的是2種蟲子的侵襲:
1)對面的住戶把她家的蟑螂養得太好了,所以自從她搬走以後,她家的蟑螂就到處尋找新樂園。真是嚇人。向宿舍的管理員投訴後,拿了3個蟑螂誘餌。可是...誘餌的膠帶似乎也沒太大的作用。有幾隻聰明的小強只是在裡面爬了一下就出來了。不過,要對付蟑螂比以下的害蟲容易多了。

2)最近不知被臭蟲還是跳蚤咬了幾次。自從星期四拿我的羽毛外套送去乾洗和洗完一些衣服後就似乎沒有了。目前留意有沒有跳來跳去的小黑點,新的被咬的痕跡,和床上有沒有蟲子。明天出太陽,所以打算洗床單和衣服,順便檢察床墊。希望不是我在舊金山遇見的臭蟲!!!

  2. 唉,遺憾的是...這隻蟲是我從新加坡帶來的...
    可能是在新加坡某地方被纏上,然後寄宿在我的羽毛外套?
    然後我把羽毛外套帶來日本...繼續被咬...
    不過所幸自從拿羽毛外套去外面洗之後就沒事了

    目前還是無法掉以輕心,因為只過了4天。
    檢察床墊也沒看到臭蟲,不過也有可能躲起來了。
    仍繼續緊密留意到底是臭蟲還是跳蚤,和到底會不會再出現
    之前我在舊金山的臭蟲經驗實在是太恐怖了,所以我得提高警惕。

  3. 用殺蟲劑悶房間看看
    利用上課時間悶房間 下課開窗戶 出去晃晃吃個飯等殺蟲劑散掉在回家
    應該可以驅蟲"一陣子" 小時候媽媽都用這招>.0

  4. 小卓:噗~這招只對跳蚤,蚊子和蟑螂有效。臭蟲的話就不行了。
    還好這6天都沒咬了。所以應該是我的羽絨外套長跳蚤出來咬我吧=_=
