a few good men

Last night, I accidentally left my hp at the Arc Trainer in my company's gym room. I didn't realise it until a few hours later. But when I returned to the gym room after the guard opened the door for me, the hp was no longer there. My heart sank. I blamed it on myself for being careless. and now i gotta spend a few hundreds ringgit to buy a new phone. Ughhhhh..  My plan to wait for the release of the next generation of iPHONE was spoiled.

I still didn't really give up on the search and we went back to car  to look for the pink hp again while dear trying to call my hp number. Strange that the person who took the hp didn't turn it off as we could still get through my hp number. While we were still in the car, checking out every corner, tried calling one of my colleagues who was there with me in the gym to see whether he saw my hp or not, texting to my phone to beg the person to sell the phone back to me (dear sms-ed in BM somemore XD: tolong pulangkan hp saya dan saya akan belinya dari anda and bla bla bla... ) then suddenly, someone returned the call, using my phone.

My hp was found by a colleague !!! He told dear his name. Oh! I know that name and I know that he's a frequent gym user as I always see him in the gym. We did chat a few words before in the gym previously. He said that due to his is not available during the weekends to return the phone to me, he will do so on Monday!!! I was so happy that moment that I wiped out the tears around my eyes and started smilling with hope. Thank God that my hp is in safe hands!!!! Thank God for this nice guy who even assured dear that he will keep the hp safe with him.

Dear said he will buy him a tube of JJ Swiss Roll from Ipoh to thank him on Monday when we return to work. Thank you John for helping me to keep my hp! and sorry for the trouble of explaining to my mom when she called on my hp, without realising that my hp is with someone else.>.< I hope there won't be anymore calls to my hp during the weekends... >.<

This was not the 1st time I encounter such incident. There was once I dropped my purse in a cafeteria in a private college. (We went to a private college nearby our office for lunch, haha.. funny right.. ) I realised it when we were back to office and got down from our car. We returned to the cafeteria and we saw a group of young boys sitting next to our table where we had our lunch 20 minutes ago. I went up to them and asked about my purse. and there was this one boy who had my wallet in his hand, took out my IC and started looking at it and at me and said, "Oh, so this is you?". I then said yes and he handed the purse to me without asking further. I thanked him and drove back to office, thinking to myself that I was lucky to meet such a group of honest young men!! That time I had about  RM150  and credit cards in my purse and he did not take anything from the purse!

I have to say a big thank you to some of the few good men here in Penang that I bumped into. I thank God for these people as they were honest and kind to me. Thank God for His protection too.

I was even more convinced that there are a lot of good and honest people around the world when i read in The Star paper this morning on this news with the title of "Housebuyer finds and returns RM 135,000" in WORLD section. Go check it out! (you can read the online article by abcnews here too)

MAY GOD BLESS YOU FOLKS as you continue to do good and be honest to the people around you!

p/s: Now you know why I was nicknamed "Dai Tao Har" by my grandma la. blek. keke
