Spider

Sandman, was it a Dolomedes raptor?? These are common in Taiwan.

Here's one for Wolf. It is also common here. (anyway, it's in "A guide to Common Spiders of Taiwan" by Chen Shyh-Hwang

Almost certainly, although the ones I usually see around the house and yard are much greyer than the one in your pic and with a less plump abdomen.

Rascal,

Maybe you were mud-rolling with some midgets.

Rascal,

I've seen something similar to what you have described, and sometimes see it and then look around, sure enough a cockroach is running around.

ATTN: American Citizens living in Taiwan, please support American Citizens Abroad - ACA http://www.americansabroad.org/

Americans living in Taiwan CALL your senators and representatives and ask them to repeal FATCA and support residency based taxation (RBT) for Americans living abroad! Writing a letter is useless! FATCA has been implemented and banks will be collecting your information here. In addition renunciation fees are now $2350! Insane!

The future is something which everyone reaches at the rate of sixty minutes an hour, whatever he does, whoever he is.

We'll have to start calling you bugman. That's exactly the kind I usually see.

I guess I am moving out then. ;)

Thanks all, I will buy some WMD and get rid of whatever it is.

The Horror continues

Guess I need to go back and fill you in on a few details first: I found said droppings in my wardrobe, at the bottom of the compartment where I hang my jackets. As well I stored an empty toiletry bag (for travelling) and my video-camera bag there (with the camera and accessories inside).
Naturally I checked the inside of the bags but couldn't find anything inside of them. I took them out however and cleaned up the mess, also washed all the clothes in the wardrobe even though there was no indication that the 'monster' had been anyway else. Yet I couldn't stand the thought of something crawling around my shirts and towels.
Anyway, no further droppings where found in the wardrobe since then but when I walked into the living room this morning I notices two tiny grains beside the camera-bag which I 'quarantined' there in open space.
Hah, dead giveaway I thought and turned it upside down and found .... heart pondering ... a mean cockroach hidding in one of the small pockets.
It did give me this cute "I am harmless and innocent" look but I know no mercy when it comes to non-paying tenants, so I hit the bag a few times and the thing felt out. Wasn't really a big one, just ~1cm long but rather fat, and I stepped on it about 20 times - just to make sure.

Puh, what a relief - no pack of spiders luring at night and waiting for their opportunity, "just" a disguisting cockroach ... :D
