Wah lau !!! did not know that this was a celebrity cat, the media glare
worst off that Jack Neo's .... :ko: :ko: :ko:

Anyways I am not sure that I can find it again, unlike the Malayan Eggfly, this fellow is
a single individual. Also the Malayan Eggfly lays eggs on a single leaf, and the plant gets covered
with cats, however I have noticed that the next day all the cats were gone ... :ko: :ko: :ko:

Er..any chance of going this Sunday morning instead ?
Wonder if you have more pictures of the foodplant, was it a creeper something like this, but belonging to a more local sp (Parsonsia helicandra) : ... nea600.jpg

Sunday I will not be around, up in Panti forest...

It is a creeper, but not the same as the one in your link, will check it out some time next week ...
:D :D :D
