Event: Cellphone stolen (pickpocket)
Venue: Kota Kinabalu Night Market
Time : 9:47pm
Weather : Gloomy
After a day trip at Kota Klias, watching Probosis Monkeys and fireflies, still half awake and drowsy, we decided to dropped by KK's infamous night market to buy some avocardo drink... well, i heard it was infamous for its variety of food, the crowd, but little did i know, it was also famous for the evil pick-pockets/snatch thieves who lurks the dark corner of the market...
The night market was bright, colourful. I snapped a few pictures, i wondered whether he must have spotted me that moment. We dropped by a few fruit stalls. Blended Avocardo, we insisted we wanted that, and persisted until we found a stall which sells them. The last avocardo, not very fresh. So, we decided to buy an avocardo from another stall, and bring it to the blended fruit drink stall for our blended avocardo. I know, we sound almost too persistent.
Could it be the auntie at the fruit stall? The little boy whom i waved to as he brought his little orange juice? The guy who sells cigarettes at the corner, with his evil hawk eyes? The man who brushed past? The lovely ladies at the fruit drink stalls? The many people whom passed us by? I really cannot tell...
and i wondered,
Should i have been more careful, perhaps things like this can be avoided... if i didn't want avocardo juice, if i would have just go home like a contented little kid, if i wasn't so distracted by the night market scene, if i wasn't watching the little boy at the orange juice stall, if i hadn't wander off to the corner of the market, if i hadn't put my phone in my pocket, if only the phone wasn't in a black velvet pouch with a string, it just made it too easy for him.... tempting in fact... too many ifsss....
i concluded that: When we go out to crowded places, EVERYONE is a pick-pocket until proven otherwise...
when i am less careful, it's my fault? am i to blame? or simply my bad luck?
then i wondered, why do people steal? Why do people take things that doesn't belong to them?
Perhaps, they were very poor people who had many mouths to feed, struggling to make ends met. NO. NO, this does not gives you the right to steal. Stealing, is unforgivable.
Would you steal if you had the chance? Would you take something which if not yours? What if you know that you would not get caught and would be punished? Is it the laws and regulations that hold you back? or simply the principal that thou shall not steal?
Tell a lie, that's stealing a person's right to the truth.
Kill a person, that's stealing a person's life, stealing a husband from a wife, stealing a father from his children.
Rape a women, that's stealing her rights, her dignity.
Stealing is indeed one of the worst sins on Earth.
Anyway, back to my story. Well, i can think positive, like i'm glad noone got hurt and my new camera wasn't stolen. Yet, losing this phone who had been with me through thick and thin, it's still depressing. i've got like 5 or more congratulations wishes, that i can have an excuse to get a new phone... but not now, not when i'm totally broke,... and my laptop dead... and i'm currently unemployed... life sucks, sometimes....
dear God, WHY ME?
