I Lost My Wallet


And misfortunes happen on unexpected moments.

I was doing my final rounds of post-Christmas shopping yesterday for some of my godchildren in Caloocan when I noticed that my wallet was already stolen. The cash in it wasn’t a big issue for me but some of the things that won’t be replaced again:

  • The wallet that Da Jojo has given me
  • My college ID since freshman
  • The SG$ that I kept from my last trip in Singapore (the shiny plastic looking ones)

My mistake perhaps is that it is a bad practice to put all your cards in one wallet. As the saying goes “don’t put all your eggs in one next/basket”. Well aside from the items above, I also lost my ATM cards, credit card, 5 MRT cards worth < 5 pesos.

I lost not only material things but also memories. How I wish that the culprit is technologically capable of using Google to be curious on the name of his/her victim and find this blog and read that he/she can take the cash and just return the wallet and the cards inside to me. Good thing I already made the groceries and all the necessary expenses.

It hurts to lose the things worth remembering but I can’t linger just on this. Since my ATM card is lost, no money for the New Year until my card is ready again. 😦

  1. The crappy thing about these incidents are the phone calls you have to make… to the Credit Card companies, the bank and also with HR.

    Oh well, I hope this bad luck stays with 2007 and that you’ll have a great 2008.
