I was eating mala with my sister on this rainy evening and just as we we were about to go home I dropped my phone and walked for about 15 minutes before even noticing.
Looked around for it in vain
I panicked, my sister panicked, A LOT. We tried retracing our steps, asking the shopkeepers nearby and calling my phone but nothing seemed to help me get closer to finding my phone.
I thought I genuinely needed to file a police report until we got a call from my number and when we answered, no one was speaking on the other end – all we could hear was the sound of the crowd and the rain.
After a minute or so of saying hello they finally responded and told me where they found it and where they were and luckily it was nearby where my sister and I were.
Couple who found it stayed behind in hopes that the owner of the phone will contact them
We met up with them and they were the most pleasant people! They said they were about to actually head home until they found my phone on the floor so they decided to stay around the area and grab a meal in hopes that I’ll come to find them and thank God I did.
We thanked them numerous times and left… but before going home we decided to buy them chocolate waffles from a nearby bakery and luckily the waffles were done before they left the food court.
First time in a long time I personally lost something in public and I couldn’t be any more grateful that I came across such wonderful people at the end of it all 🙂
Here are what netizens think
- can’t tell if the mala was so good, or so bad, OP didn’t notice he’d dropped his phone. both possible
- very surprised you don’t have some pin or password set on your screen lock.
- This is such a uniquely Singaporean wholesome experience. Wish we had more posts like this!
- Please be more careful next time. So glad that you were saved by kind souls tonight
