I'VE BEEN ROBBED !!

It was a fine monday morning, I woke up at 5.45 like i always do. Took my shower. Woke my daughter up for her morning school.

I went downstairs to pack things up as it was already 6.30am. My wife and kids were all in the living room watching TV. As I get things prepared, I realized my wallet went missing. I remember puting my wallet inside my sling bag (yeah..I have one) and hung it on the wall hook. But it wasn't there.

Its was one hell of a search - under the sofa, under the tv, the car porch - my wallet was no where to be found. Suddenly, my daughter said,'eh mana laptop?' (where is the laptop?). All eyesthen focused on the coffee table where our nice toshiba laptop used to be. It's GONE!!

saya kena aniaya dgn bapak..

Before we get into a scary conclusion, I'm still searching for my wallet here and there. Finally, the truth revealed and I had to admit that my house had been broken into. The laptop, my wallet, daughter's handphone..etc..etc..were stolen.

We realized that a few things had been moved away from their original position. My wifequickly checked for  her purse, fuh, what a relieved! The purse was still there. She always bring her purse upstairs.

sayalah murid contoh..

Come to think about it, I've locked the fence, the grille and the sliding door (well..unsure about the grille though) but I normally did. Then I remembered putting my car keys (whole set with house key) on the dining table. The table is within reach from our UNLOCKed window panel.

The post mortem was : I put the car keys on the table, the bloody thief climbed up the fence, the car porch was well lit, he saw the keys, slide the window panel, took the key, opened the grille and sliding door, then helped himself with the valuables...

rileks-rileks

It was all due to my negligence. I took for granted what I practised - left the keys on the table and it can be viewed from quite a distance. Moreover, our window panel's curtain was nicely shaped - in the name of decoration.

tension sebab tak boleh masuk internet dah..ha, ha..

Immediately called 911..eh..bukan, 999 (too much Crime Scene & Investigation). The patrol car came, few word of wisdom from the 'yawning' policeman. Lodged a police report. Waited for the inspector general investigation officer to come and take photographs (who came at 3.30pm..ceh..!).

 ni masa serius tengok kat pc, tapi sekali dia senyum...mak ai..

Replaced the IC - done (free - due to robbery, snatch theft, natural disaster etc)
Replaced the licence - done (free - have to meet their officer, long wait but worth it - RM20 saved!)
Replaced the ATM Cards - Failed (they don't accept temporary IC..bluek!!)
- CIMB - bring your birth certificate and your licence to any branch, they can do it.
- MAYBANK - bring your IC and birth certificate tothe branch of origin i.e where you open up your account - if at Kelantan you have to go there la?
- PUBLIC BANK is the worst - No way jose'...! (until you get your original IC)
- the trick - transfer your amount to your spouse using internet - abis cita..
apa barang curi rumah orang..minum milo la best..


Moral of the story/ advice from the Police dude :

1) Don't put your keys which will be visible from outside (wek..malu..malu..). Hide it at a secret spot that only certain people will know
2) Distraction to the robber - use old wallet/purse as a dummy..at least put 'duit saidina' inside
3) The robber can easily lift up your glass sliding door to quash the 'lock-key' position. Put a stick at your glass door's railing to jam it, so it can't be slide from outside.
4) Additional inner key lock at the grill, they can't try to cut it with gigantic steel cutter from outside
5) Hide your valuables
6) Try to get a guardian dog, or a wolf even better..werewolf..(human and beast -2 in one)...marvellous!!
7) Don't block your ATM Card immediately...but soon. Transfer your money to your spouse's account (CIMB will block your ATM card WITH your CIMB clicks facility - beware)

I've learned my lesson. Glad that the robber(s) don't disturb our family upstairs. I still can hug them..yeay!!

  15. Syukur semua selamat. Itu yg penting...
    Beli padlock tambahan bro, pasang banyak2 kat grill rumah kau, bagi dorang letih tengok benda tu.. sure dorang pilih rumah lain punya..

  16. zaki : aku nak letak banyak2 sampai org naik mual dan muntah-muntah..ha, ha..

  17. Alhamdullilah, dia hanya curi barang-barang yg boleh diganti.. Ijam, kalau dah tambah padlock kat rumah tu.. kunci tu bawak ke bilik tidur atas.. lagi satu, tambah padlock nanti bertambahlah masa nak membuka.. so sarankan letak 2-3 set fire extinguisher kat rumah tu.. just in case of emergency.. sebab kalau ada apa-apa yg tak baik berlaku at least dapat diselamatkan..
