I came home Sunday discovering that my house has been broken into. The damages were my Sony Vaio Laptop, some cash and jewelry.

Irreplaceable are the gazillion of photos stored in my laptop as well as my almost finished MBA application essays. Also lost was my sense of security in my apartment — what would’ve happened if I was in the apartment if the man tried to steal themselves in?

The police said it’s because of Chinese New Year season. What’s scary is that the burgler knew I was not at home when he attacked, as if he was tracing my action.

Regardless, it’s a mighty scary feeling. Even after the police report, I doubt if they can ever recover my laptop and my precious memories.

Here’s the guy replacing the locks on my apartment. Scary but necessary. Pls be careful so you don’t end up like me.


About Tina

I'm a forgetful person. But I think a lot. Every day, a lot of thoughts enter my head. That's why this blog came to be: first, to keep my memories alive through the years, and two, to actually see how I and my thoughts have changed. Please note that I seldom draft or edit my posts. Sometimes, if I'm not careful, I offend some of you, my readers. And while I apologize for making you feel uncomfortable, I am not sorry for being honest or for making well-intentioned mistakes. I will however be the first to admit if I change my mind. Hence, do read and proceed with caution. My life is as colorful and as boring as you make it. I complain many days, but offer some encouragement in others. Life is fluid, it changes. So keep the positives and throw away the negatives, and I do hope that at the end of the day, you will enjoy reading the blog and leaving comments here and there if my posts touches you. Happy reading!

    Holy shit! This is really unsettling, particularly because it’s a flat in Hong Kong for which I would say that you’re absolutely safe in. Now that’s shattered….

    None of the neighbors heard anything? Was the door broken or the lock picked? Did your laptop have a password or fingerprint protections?

    This really sucks 🙁
