Hi, below are some important info:-
Date : 11 Dec 2015
Place : Singapore (Yishun estate)

Bug found : on a wall in my house
Notes: presses it with my finger several times and it still alive and crawling.

Dear Ken,
Though you have attached three images, there is not enough detail in any of them to make an identification, so we are unable to answer your many questions.

    I assume , this must be a species of hard-bodied ticks. It is very difficult to crush them by finger. It has 8 legs, the 9th one in the middle (as in the image pointing straight) must be the claws.
    Ticks are ectoparasites(external parasites), they live by sucking blood from animals (like dog). I am not sure of any human connection.
    Hope this information helps.
