Some kind soul

I can't believe that there really are kind people in Singapore, but the ending to the story is that hubby got his phone back. There is no way to find out who the person is, but whoever he/she is, thank you so so much. We suspect it is someone working around the Pasir Panjang area as he most probably dropped it before he got on the bus to come home. That certain someone would have taken the mrt from Harbourfront station and made his/her way to the central police station which is actually quite a distance from Outram mrt. Please know that if you ever come across this posting, that we are ever-so-grateful to you.

It's not the first time that he has dropped this phone of his. When it was only a day old, we were going to catch the fireworks at the Esplanade area and it was so crowded with hardly any space to walk. Princess was younger (and lighter) then and he had carried her through the thick crowd to avoid her being trampled on. Not long after he had picked her up, he felt for his pouch and got a shock to find that it was no longer attached to his belt. Now, the problem with this pouch is that it doesn't go through the belt, but rather clips onto it. He had the shock of his life, and with a new mobile costing hundreds of $$, he was very sure that he'd never see it again. It's literally a needle in a haystack. When my dad realised what was happening, he said he had picked up a mobile phone a little distance back, and not knowing who it belonged to, had given it in at a restaurant along the way in case the owner came back for it. Who is to know that the owner was none other than his own son-in-law. And who would have thought that we'd see the phone again. That was really so so lucky, and now this. I told him that this phone is meant to be his and that he should take very good care of it. Even if he changes to a new one, he should keep it for sentimental reasons and not trade it in. :)

Very lucky indeed. I wish whoever had picked up my wallets (1 in singapore & the other in Perth) had returned them. And to think I had only $10 in each!
