No comment on your mother-But Croco Chan is a whole different kettle of fish.
NY has King Kong Honkers has Croco Chan........
It has 66 teeth and that is a very auspicious Feng Shui number... remarks a villager standing amidst the crowd at the banks of San Pui river or what is known as Yuen Long creek.
It has come to help our village in these difficult economic times states another.
It was a Saturday just like any other. Croco Chan , was enjoying the weekend as well.
As if enjoying at Repulse Bay, Croco Chan takes the time to swim around and even has hurried suntans on the banks of San Pui river.
Tell me you got Croco Chan, exclaims my wife pointing towards my Digital Cam.
I hit the rewind to check what I have and all I have are all the beautiful women at the scene in their Saturday best. No Croco Chan!
Doesn't he look like Chris Patton? Comes a casual remark from my eldest son. My daughter and younger son nod in agreement.
Who? Croco Chan?
No, John Lever.
Ah... yes a bit.
In a distant corner, Lever is being interviewed by reporters. I almost got him but I missed answers Lever, a calm and resolute man with a confident tone of someone who is enjoying the crocodile as much as the crocodile enjoys us.
I think I will try at four in the morning when it is dark because the lights reflecting from the surrounding buildings [mostly warehouses and factories] are too bright. Besides, we want the water level to go down so we can see it without torches. That is when I will get him... adds Lever with unwavering thoughtfulness.
Well, I don't think most of the beautiful women in the crowd would be hanging around at four in the morning and therefore, it is just going to be Lever, his assistants, sleepy reporters, administrative sods and me drinking beer and filming the capture [that is, if today is the lucky day].
One person who should have been here to increase his public ratings and popularity, has conveniently escaped to Europe as soon as Croco Chan sneaked into San Pui river.
You don't expect us to be with you until four in the morning, do you? asks my startled wife.
"No honey, let us take the kids to Tai Mo Shan mountain and country park. After that, I will send you all home and come here alone..." Saying which I leave the scene with my family.
If it is a female, we could sell Croco Omelettes or Croco eggs. I overhear the same two villagers discussing their future business plans.
We could call it San Pui Daan [where Daan means eggs in Cantonese] ideates another.
Well, I guess that is better than Croco Meat, Croco Bags, or Croco Shoes.
