I'm a Victim of Salisi Gang!
Sunday, December 09, 2007
This post is an overdue post. I wanna share this story even though you might have already heard a lot of stories like mine. But anyway, here it goes.

WARNING: Punum-puno ng emosyon ang kwentong ito so forgive me for the profane words I am going to use. Pasencia na rin po sa mis-spelled word and grammar. 2:30 am na kasi. mejo nabo-borlogs na atashi.

Last week, I was set to meet one of my entourage, Joy, to get the measurements of the alterations ng gown nya. We agreed na magmi-meet na lang kami sa Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf sa Gateway. I know kasi na mashadong matao sa Starbucks at mas madali kaming magkakitaan sa CBTL. So there, nagkita kami dun around 6-7 and because matagal kaming di nag-meet, more chika more fun ang drama ng mga bakla. We have a lot of things to catch up- so much stories to tell with so little time to spend with. Dahil maliit ang table sa CBTL at wala namang couch dun, we agreed na dun na lang kami sa non-smoking area kasi mas 'konti tao dun. While inside, we placed our two cups of coffee and Joy placed her bag dun sa table. Since wala ng space. I just placed my bag on the floor, dun side ng may glass. Kamapante ako kasi wala namang dumadaang ibang tao (dahil wall glass side nga eh, anuber?!) and wala namang nago-occupy sa likod ko. So there, chika-chika kami for 10 minutes after kong ilagay ang tape measure sa bag ko. After 10 mins (out of intuition siguro) I was about to check my cellphone for the time (baka kasi late na ko) and to my surprise, wala na ung bag ko, AS IN BUONG BAG! At first, akala ko joke lang yun or baka naman nadampot lang ng maintenance people. But hello, super reality check talaga ako, asking myself if this is happening. Sadly, misku sampalin ko man ang sarili ko ng mag-asawa, for REAL nga sya at wala na kong magagawa. I was speechless for a couple of minutes. I just went back to reality nung marealize ko na ang daming valuables dun sa bag ko, namely:

3 credit cards (ung isa dun kaka-increase langng credit limit to P89,000)
check woth P13,000
cash- P12,000 (pambayad sana partially sa photographer/videographer)
cosmetic make up set worth P3,000 (kakabili ko lang 'neto. sale na nga ang MAC at maybelline eh)
1 USB flash drive that contains all my necessary back up files ng wedding (eto ung nakakabwisit sa lahat)
my precious UP ID issued on 1999 (miski bulok na eh!)
SSS ID
Nokia Phone

...and some important items. I tried calling my number and as expected, ginamit nung nagnakaw ung phone ko. TANG INA! Joy and I immediately went to the Globe office located on the 3rd floor. Pina-block ko na ung phone ko. Nakiusap na rin ako sa Globe CSR kung pwedeng maki gamit ng landline because I really need to call Metrobank, Standard Chartered and Citibank (ah huh, kabisado ko lahat ng credit card number ko...bata pa ako kaya walang memory gap LOL). Sabi nung agent from Standard Chartered, nag try daw ung kumuha ng bag ko na mag cash advance. Good thing na mali ung PIN na nai-enter kung di, yari ako. Nalimutan ko lang itanong ung location ng ATM kung san nag try mag cash advance ung thief. Andun din ung PINCODE slip nung payroll atm kasi di ko pa napapalitan pincode during that time. Mabuti na nga lang kasi ung bagong ATM card (from our new payroll provider) eh nakasingit dun sa passport na naiwan ko sa bahay nina Russell sa Cavite.

I have so much things to say about this incident pero kelangan ng tag-isang post para mai-describe ko ng maayos ung hassle na naidulot ng mga bagay na nawala ko.

Up until this time, I don't know what went wrong, even si Joy. Actually, mas nahihiya sya kasi sya dapat ung nakakita kung sino ung nasa likod ko. Kung meron mang lumapit sa likod ko, dapat nakita nya. kaso wala talaga syang maalala. What I remember though is that, there was a beautiful girl sitting in my front who keeps on smiling at me. I can't help but stare because she too darn beautiful. Sabi ni Russell, umiral daw ang pagkatibo ko baka na-hipnotized daw ako... LMAO

It was a big dismay for me that CBTL doesn't have a security camera kaya di ko na malalaman who took my bag. I guess dapat maging requirement sa mga shops especially sa mga ATM centers ung pagkakaroon ng security camera just like sa US. Anyhoo, after calling all the credit card hotlines, I called Russell.My voice was calm but my spine was shivering and pinagpawisan ako ng malamig. I called Russell to inform him about what happened. Di na ako tumawag sa haws kasi baka mag alala pa sina erpat and ermat. Ayoko sila mag alala. Nagpasundo na lang ako kay bebeh and he drove all the way from Cavite to Cubao. Mejo natagalan pa nga kasi matraffic sa Baclaran Area. I really don't want to disturb him kaso ni singkong duling, wala ako sa bulsa. Sarili ko lang at jacket ang natira sa akin. We dropped off Joy muna sa haws nya sa Cubao and I reproted the incident dun sa pinakamalapit na police station. According to the police sa front desk, ang dami daw reported cases ng budol-budol, salisi and robbery talaga pag ganitong panahon. Two days before I came to them, may nawalan daw ng 100k sa isa ring restaurant sa Gateway. PAKSHET. HayyyY, buhay talaga! I had to file a police report kasi for my SSS and other pertinent documents. My only consolation though is that, di ko na na-experience ung trauma ng nahold-up o natutukan ng kutsilyo/baril.

Lesson learned: Be more vigilant in your surroundings and most importantly, SA PANAHON NG KAPASKUHAN, BAWAL ANG KATANGAHAN!

    ate thet, wag ka na lang po manghinayang sa mga bagay na un kxe may point ka. mas nakaktraumatize ung matutukan ng deadly items sa katawan mo.

    basta good thing ure safe. that's the most important part.

    God will find ways para pagsisihan nung mga gumawa non sayo ang lahat ng ginawa nila.

    Shyet cla.

    i feel for you sis... not only hassle talaga na nawawalan ka ng pera/materyal na bagay at identification cards... pero bad trip din yung sense of violation of your property, space and person...

    hi sis,

    nakakarelate ako sayo dahil sadly, I had the same experience at Gateway. sa Timezone naman ung sa kin. sobrang bilis din ng pangyayari. my bag was actually in front of us (1 meter away from me). my h2b and i were playing a video game. sa sobrang engrossed, we didn't notice that someone has already gotten my bag. buong bag din gaya mo with wallet, usb, IDs, etc. we reported this incident at their security office but they weren't able to retrieve anything. marami daw talagang salisi gangs sa gateway so ingat na lang tayong lahat sa lugar na yun.

    wag mo na lang isipin ung nawala sayo at least di ka nasaktan o ano.

    ingats!

    good thing nothing bad happened to you - physically. i mean, dito marami ring ganyan. kaya everytime i go out, my wallet's in my pocket and since lagi namang tight ang jeans ko eh madaling ma sense if someone's taking something from me. puro baby stuff lang nasa bag ko para if ever nawala eh i won't regret it.

     
  • At 12/10/2007 7:57 PM, Blogger Ana P. S. said…

    Hi Thet, grabe pala ang nangyari sa iyo. Na mismerized ka ng magandang babae, lucky talaga ng iba ang gaganda. Anyway, ang sa bag mo, naku! Buti nalang you can replace the things you lost, kaso nga lang ang hassle. Hay, kailangan talagang maging vigilant tayo pag dating sa ganong bagay, mawawala talaga. I would be lost kong ako eh, kasi no copy ako ng docs saka can't remember my card numbers. As for the roberry ha, talagang ma trauma ka if tinutokan ka ng baril...LOL. Siguro ma shock ka at can't help to give your bag nalang. Buti nalang peaceful ang nangyari sa iyo. Okay, I'll make sure na I can tell my people about what happened to you, ma aware din sila. Kind regards. Sorry to hear about what happened, sana you can get back up sa ganon, have everything back.

    tama ka, mabuti hindi holdap with tutok ng patalim o baril... isipin mo na lang na in a way may natulungan kang tao with those things na nawala sayo.
    ingat na lang lagi...
