Yi we qi ji hui fa sheng

it's still fresh in my mind
the incident of getting robbed on the streets

those were the emotions running wild after it happened

i came bac from Songkla that evening
a place where everyone should go when ur visiting hatyai
or else it would be a waste
reached 'hotel'
took some rest
went out to search for a cyber cafe just to update my facebook status =.="

and headed of to the streets
roaming aimlessly
just wanted to explore the whole of hatyai
cause it wasn't easy to memorize all the street names
took me a while to recognize using the buildings

as i roamed farther from town...
i got lost
and it was quite hard to find a tut tut car
guessed i ventured a bit too far
it was starting to drizzle
so i tried my very best to search for an exit
but i was approached by 2 men
dark skin
both not too tall
definitely older than me
i thought they were just being frenly trying to talk to me
but instead
one men drew out his penknife
a small one. not too big
and pointed at me

at that point
(OH SHIT flashed my mind)
all i could do was trying to calm down
cause i dunno wtf shit they were talking in thai
then the other men searched for my WhiteBerry
and held to it 1st
of all things.. took my phone 1st.. FCK!!
i couldn't do anything but tremble in fear
next they wanted my wallet
and i had to take it out
i held on to some malaysian money
begging them to let me have it
i kept on saying
Malaysia Malaysia Malaysia
they showed some mercy and let me off
i quickly ran out from that place...
saw a tut tut
rushed bac to a cyber cafe
and took some time to calm down......

i was so scared i wanted to take a flight bac to msia that nite
but i calmed down
went on9 to look for yinyin
i was lucky they did not take my debit cards and passport
so i asked her to bank in some amount of money to my debit card
so i could withdraw more money (just in case)
to get a bus ticket bac next morning
it was hell
total loss 2.2k
2 weeks well planned trip = 2 days trip

an EXPENSIVE lesson learnt:::: i shall never travel alone anymore =___=" my minute size shows that i'm vulnerable to these things no matter how much precaution i took.
never the less, I thank God i was still alive. Amen
