I just received a call from a heng dai [兄弟] of mine.
His home just got broken into. During day time around 4-7pm. He lives in Bandar Baru Ampang. Modus operandi = grill of the window in the kitchen was some how broken and the thieves just entered and took whatever they can get their fingers on.
Items lost include Chinese antique items, computers and dSLR camera.
– Nikon D80, serial no: 6044555
– Nikon 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6, serial no: 2316938
– A pair of antique Chinese dragons (I don’t know how it looks like, his description is lost to a banana like me).
– His Compaq laptop, 15in, Centrino, 2-3 years old. Not much detail on this one.
So, I have listed the serial numbers of the camera equipments. I hope whoever happens to chance upon them does a search on the internet to check the status of the camera before purchasing. Oh, if you are a member of any photography forums, please help me post a thread about these lost items too. I hope against hope that miracle happens — the thieves are caught before they manage to off-load their loot; and most if not all the items are retrieved.
I hope you, reading this blog of mine, do the same — pray and hope. Don’t just drop a 6-word-comment saying you’re sorry, send-your-condolences, you-feel-bad-for-him, etc… That is not enough – you might as well go m@sturbate and get on with your live. What I need is that you spend just a few moments visualising that the items are found & recovered; pray and hope as if you yourself lost these things. Maybe, just maybe, with enough ‘conviction’ and prayers… some miraculous sh!te will happen.
No I will not belanja minum of something. You’ve got to be sincere. And trust me, a bit of well-meaning thoughts will be paid back in abundance.
