This is not a beauty related post but an update of what happened to me on Monday 26 March 2012 at 7.10pm at my apartment carpark area.
I lived in an ungated property and I became the victim of a robbery when I came back from work on that day. It was still very bright and I was not alert of a motorbike with 2 guy that looked like Malay/Indonesian, one fat and one thin. I was walking towards my unit and the thin one ran towards me and pulled my handbag. I put up a fight and shouted but finally the evil man won and ran away with my bag and everything in it. I was bruised as I fell on the floor. My hair was pulled and I was beaten up by the heartless animal. The neighbours came out after the incident (which is nothing unusual)
The first thing I did was to report to the bank to block all my cards. (Fortunately my housemate was in). My house key and car key was gone. My handphone was gone too.
I asked a few friends to pray that my bag would be returned by a kind person. And God is really good, on the next day a fireman called my office and I got my beloved bag returned. The kind Malay man, Yusri found my bag at Taman Jaya park. He went for his morning exercise with his children. God bless you Yusri.
Although there is nothing much left, I was thankful that I got back the following items:
1. Driving licence
2. My shopping card
3. My medical card
4. My YSL lipstick
5. My house key (despite that I had my locks replaced)
The cleaner found my car key while sweeping the floor. So, I got back my car key too. God bless you too Mr Mani.
I could not sleep for almost a week. I was very disturbed and angry at the 2 animals. When my friend asked me what nationality they are, I simply say they are "xxxx xxx xxx*". (I do not like to use swear words but I was too angry). My body is still aching now but my heart is really hurt.The animals ruined my Radley handbag that was less than a year old and my phone that was equally new. My total loss is about RM1500.

|See my lovely Radley bag that cost RM600 - it's useless now|
Malaysia is a very dangerous place to live, I concluded. (This is my 2nd encounter with robbers)
The police even laughed at me when I showed him my wounds. Can u imagine?
I am still thinking how not to carry a handbag. Do you carry a handbag? How do you spread out your belongings so that you will not lost everything if this untoward incident happen?
Despite the incident that had happened, I still have to be brave and continue living as though nothing had happened. Please pray for me.
