Eulogy to my E51 (MIA)

Thank you for being so lovely.
I am sure I touched and pressed you more times than any other objects daily.

Always giving me the information that I need.
And somethings details that I rather not have.
Information to make big decisions,
Other stuff, just for the heck of it, you gave.

To convey my emotions and intentions
And to receive love, care and... instructions.

You are blessed with every function a man can wish for!
Except for the gadget his job prohibit.
Nevertheless you gave your due.
And revenge I will seek, to my last bit.

Rest in Peace my dear friend.

To cut the long story short, I absent-mindedly left my handphone on a rack and left the shop. 5-10mins later, I discovered the lost and immediately went searching for it.  Mrs Pancakes called through the phone but no one answered.  Hoping some good soul who find the phone will answer it and return it to me. She kept calling while I went around searching.  After a couple of minutes, the phone was switched off. *Liaoz....* So I immediately suspended my SIM card. Crap.

And for those who thought that I was joking.


As I was waiting there for the nice officer to complete my report. This man came in and said that he had been blackmailed.  Being the kay-poh me, I immediately tuned my attention to the conversation.  Apparently a Chinese national called this man and said his daughter is kidnapped and demanded $30,000 in ransom.  Being the typical father, this man immediately rushed down from his place of work and while trying to contact his daughter went to withdraw the money.  Lucky for him, he found his daughter safe and sound before the drop-off.  It was one of those scam.

Initially I felt super tiny at that point of time.  What is a lost handphone compared to this man's case?  I was a bit embarrassed actually.  But as I sat there waiting, hey, if we don't stop minor/trivial cases like a lost handphone, it might just encourage the f***er to go on to bigger things like this scam. Immediately I felt better. Seriously.

As I mourn for the lost of my phone and the data that went with it, I hope my friends' details are safe.
And yes, I take this as a message from above..... so I pre-ordered my iPhone. :)
