when things go missing

So my team wins the race! (Pictures to be posted soon!)

After having raised the benchmark-- I'll probably watch the Sepang race in the comfort of my living room the next time around. With the exception of Asia's anticipated (and controversial)Bernie-OBS's project in our southern neighbouring country, one will probably think twice of beating the jam for F1 - after being at the Monaco Circuit.

St Tropez is a beautiful town...I must come back with my family the next time around. Of course, a more comprehensive report on my trip here -- but my only sadness is losing euro500 during my stay here. We were in a rush to go out for dinner, so while changing from my good ole Coach knapsack to my dainty gold clutch, I grabbed just enough cash for cab and tips and popped my Visa in my dinner bag for a night of fine dining and disco dancing at what's claimed to be St Tropez's hippest club.

To my dismay, the next day, I found my money missing (from my wallet that I had kept in my knapsack that was stuffed in the cupboard). I searched everywhere. Tracing back, I was VERY certain I had left that note in my wallet. But knowing deep inside that I should have locked that particular note with the rest of the money in the safe-- I didn't want to make a big fuss. (Un)fortunately, I shared this piece of disturbing news with Mui who (practically) forced me to report the incident to the hotel management.

Mui: Pon, you HAVE to report it...the last time something like this happened to me in Perth, I reported it...and the Aussie's were very happy that I did what I did...cause its important for them to know their staff's credibility...

Pon: Takpe la Mui...its my fault for not putting it inside the safe

Mui: It's the principle of things Pon! If you don't do it, I'm going to do it..!!!!

Pon: Really lah...its okay mui...takpe la..let it be...I wrote a note and left it near the place where i kept my bag..

Mui: You wrote a note? (*you moron)

Pon: Yea...you know...karma hits you at the weirdest times...nanti si pencuri tu sedar la...

Mui: You wrote a note? (* are you not listening to me moron?)

Pon: Yea..I wrote..." KINDLY RETURN MY EURO500 BACK PLEASE. TQ"

Mui: And you left it near the safe area?(* OMG! My friend IS a moron!)

Pon: Yup! If he or she doesn't return it...takpe lah..bukan rezeki I.

*Mui then drags me to the reception to complain*

Of course, I never saw the note again. But its okay. At least they left me an extra cookie.

And guess who just turned 12weeks?
