After the banana corner, they found their way to the left section of our garden. That must have been some tapioca plants that they were after. I had picked them up from a friend's house some months ago. But they kept coming trimming down the stems and took away the shoots which are good to eat. I actually hid them in this bush but they found out somehow.
This young one seemed to be in a real swinging mood. The plant was bent down, but did not break. Its leaves are used to get the green color for our delicacies...Malay cakes as we call them.
Busy helping themselves to the tapioca stems and notice the body...elongated, trimmed and slim..That's how I recognized them from the "good guys" group which are fatter, fuller and gentler. They seemed polite and tame and would come up to the windows waiting for food from us.
Still busy harvesting. They also helped themselves to the red helliconias (I am not so sure of the spelling) hiding inside the big bush. They had another fiasco. I have posted "Thirteen Against One" much earlier. That was them.
Its probably thinking what else to trim and slash down...pruning perhaps?
