I lost you

I know I have been posting emo write-ups lately and I was planning to post a cheery food review this week. 人算不如天算. God knows I have to do it again.
*Sigh*
I lost my wallet, with everything inside.
The best thing is that it happened after I withdrew my savings for the month. After few rounds of ransacking and paying my first visit to Balai Polis Singapura, the best thing to do to cure my sadness is of course ..... to eat.
When the kind soul offers a free treat to drown my sorrow, I couldn't be more grateful.
'Eat all you can. Treat it like an ala carte buffet.'
I had the Fruity Tiramisu that neither look nor taste like tiramisu...but I couldn't care less. All I need is sugar, sugar and sugar.
Together with my cash, cards and my shopping vouchers (darn!), I lost my dearie wallet, packed with my good old memories inside.
'Perhaps this is a good start for you. Start afresh from scratch. Ain’t this the reason you move down south?'
I couldn't agree more.
I lost you, at times I still miss you, but it is time for me to get a new one ............. maybe a new Coach wallet I saw the other day that comes with pink lining.
Oh, and why are you not going home? Did you loss your wallet too?
To the kind soul,
Thanks for always being there when I need food to drown my sorrow.

Locations: Coffee Club @ Clarke Quay

i believe posts are best written at one's highest level of emo...and you have just proven that...fantastic!..with nice pics too...the sleeping mat salleh and the question was interesting...

cokeworld citizen:

BBO:
gosh, dat was nasty. Hope u weren't hurt in the incident. Yeah, he did hand me food (the best medicine) to cure my sadness.

joe:
Lol...i hope so. I was terribly down dat nite but was tempted by wat he said 'eat all u can'. Wat can I say, food is the best medicine.

crunchasarus rex:
yeah, i was totally lost when i found out dat i lost my wallet. Felt like an illegal immigrant.

citygal:
haha...dat is very encouraging. time to get a new wallet :D

mel:
Darn, u really wan me to compare ah? Wat can i say, the police officer in SG was laughing when i asked 'do i need to pay for lodging this police report ah?'
Guess wat i got when i lodge report in kajang police station, 'resit sudah habis, datang hari isnin'.

President LL:
yeah, it was terribly painful but move on lor. Time to shop for new wallet.

nic:
Y u compliment ur own photo shooting skill ah. But good pics have to pair up with good write ups lor *ahem*. I could have condemned their food harshly but i have to admit that ur kind gesture did lighten up my mood. Thx and yes, pls waive from ur 555 book.

daphne:
Like wat joe said, hopefully there are more kind souls around who bother to return my wallet :I

Losing wallet is tragic! I can relate on the lost memories (tho for me, quite a lot is accummulated rubbish).

But-hor, your post very funny with the passed-out guy & your quip.
