# Lost my Wallet!

Lost my wallet, just before christmas! Gosh, how troublesome it can be!

Luckily, I just used up my cash inside the wallet for a gathering dinner, before we adjourned to Leicester Square, where I lost my wallet.

It's just troublesome to lose my ATM card, student card, NUS card, ULU card, etc...

Made a police report, and cancelled my bank card. Guessed what is left to do is to cancel n renew the rest of the cards...

A good lesson for me to be more careful at crowded place.


Police Report


This is where I lost my wallet... at Leicester Square Fun Fair.


At first we planned to have a go at the Merry-Go-Round. But due to majority vote, we decided to go for the Bumper Car Ride instead.


This is another ride that we forgo because of the possible havoc it may do to our full stomach after a 15 pounds meal at Four Season.


I took this picture because it somehow looks eerie with the bare tree branches, alongside with the cuddly soft toys at the fun fair. Reminds me of Chucky...

And....

Then I realized my wallet is GONE.



Lesson of the day:
"Beware of personal belongings in crowded area."
- quoted from London Metropolitan Police.

'tis the season....for pick pockets. There are twice as many thefts in busy places at this time of year.

How sad, Yd. I'm glad you are staying cheerful and not letting it spoil your holiday.

Got to be extra careful from now on ok? Take care n try to enjoy the seasons regardless!

Good thing that you didn't lose much money just the hassles of getting new cards.

What can I say? Keep your chin up dear! ;o)

ooops. Those M$"£"% F"£*& pick pocket must have picked yours in a crowded place.

Glad everything is in order and they did not take away your Christmas spirit.

Will ask Bodhi to give you his infamous hugs, with licks full of saliva to cheer you up.

Slurpppp

YD said...

awww bodhi... does he like his xmas present? my hugs to him, paragarte, metta, sutra n others...

this morning i found myself humming the tune of chinese new year song.. i wonder why. hehe

The Moody Minstrel said...

Wow! I've heard that dog spit can cure just about anything. I guess Robin (Bodhi, actually) is prepared to prove it.

@ロウ 。LOW@ said...

Oh, CNY!

I can almost smell it, YD! But i should be receiving or giving "hong pau"???

I guess - - unmarried = receiving, regardless your age! Yes! :p

But someone will miss the wonderful CNY at home, no? :P :P

YD said...

hehe low... in Malaysia, unmarried = receiving. But checking with my Taiwan friends made a surprising revelation:

In Taiwan, non-working = receiving.
Unmarried but working = giving.

So low you are in the latter group! wakakaka....

i have missed CNY in Msia for 2 times... celebrated with other home-sicked friends in China Town. LUCKILY CNY celebration in London is grand! the fireworks display is a very exciting event, better than when i was in msia. that cheered me up. :-)

.....

... but i still miss home.
