Lost My Nokia In Ikea

Location : Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Lately, I have been wondering if I should upgrade my mobile phone to one equipped with Bluetooth because i want to be able to synchronise my collection of phone numbers with my computer. Then I current mobile phone is still in absolutely perfect working condition. I've even recently changed the way it looked with a transparent housing(cover) so it looks brand new. But having a Bluetooth enabled mobile phone would definitely come in handy if I ever lost my mobile phone because I'd be able to back up all my phone numbers on computer.

Today I lost my mobile phone. Again, yours truly has proven himself to be such an idiot. I went to Ikea today and when I entered the bedroom section, all the beds were laid out, looking so nice and comfy. So I started clowning around(what else?) and I lied down on every bed to pretend that I could afford at least one of them. Within a span of 5 minutes, I realised that my balls had more space to breathe because my pockets were quite empty now. I dashed back to the bedroom section, this time frantically looking for my collection of phone numbers from England, Indonesia, Germany, Singapore, Spain, Australia, Malaysia and New Zealand packed in my tiny Nokia 8210. Zilch. Next, I tried calling my own number and the phone was now off although I had a fully charged battery in it. Then it dawned on me I'd been f***ed in the ass. Some lucky twat must have picked it up and decided to give his girlfriend a present. I did everything else that I could do(leave my contact with Ikea), etc. and then I marched outside to find someone who would kick me in the gonads.

I think there is some kind of co-relation between you thinking about it happening and it actually happening in real life. I wonder if anyone has formulated some kinda method harmonising theories like that. Incase there is such a thing, for the next few days, I'm going to be thinking hard about :-

1. shagging Beyoncé Knowles
2. winning the lottery
3. meeting Eddie Vedder
4. finding someone who gives me a Bluetooth mobile phone
5. a lightning strike to fry my Nokia 8210 wherever it is
6. world peace (yeah right. I ain't no Miss Universe)
7. shagging Beyoncé Knowles again

So now, I'm gonna HAVE to upgrade my mobile phone. I'm trying to look on the bright side and think I'm lucky that it wasn't my notebook that I lost (or my blow-up doll). And at least there's a ground swell hitting the coast for the whole of next week so I'm going surrrffiiiiiinnnggg.....

Could friends of mine(from all countries) please do me a favour and send me your full contact number again?

By the way, I was kidding about the doll.

I love your layout! It's really soothing yet professional.

"Lost My Nokia In Ikea." It rhymes nicely. :)

i can top your story - i've left my mobile twice in a cab and once i FLUSHED it! i was on the phone, standing in my bathroom after taking a leak (i suspect this may be too mcuh information) and it slipped - and i didnt want to take it out with my hand so i just flushed it.


i think that tops your story.

and i think there's probably more of a co-relation between paranoi about something happening and it actually happening. so you need to be PARANOID about beyonce hunting you down to shag you.

you know if hk is good for surfing? i'll be on my way there again soon, just wondering if i'll be able to give it a go.

stacia : thanks for the compliments! hope to see u around here too...

sarah : i dropped my first mobile phone into an Asian toilet bowl AFTER taking a dump - yup, that hole in the ground. and worst of all, unlike you, I tried to retrieve it but it had to be a hole which had a funnel that drops down all the way. i thought of posting that story up but it's just too disgusting. yeah, it was a pretty shitty day for me...

jet : there's an official surfing association in hong kong so you might want to check that out on the Net. I believe there is a place called Big Wave Bay where they hold surfing competitions every year.

Well Edwin,

Remember when we were having breakfast at Sea Park and you wanted to take a dump, I decently reminded you not to drop your mobile phone into your shit. Well, I had a feeling or some sought that your mobile phone came into my mind. I believe I am quite gifted with a sixth sense that I could tell the future...or near future. So I just had to advise you to hold on to it carefullly as something might happen. And, at last it really did.... So, you ought to buy a chain and chain the phone to your body the next time. I know how it feels about losing a phone as it is dreadful not about losing the phone, but all the contact numbers inside it. It is like losing part of your whole life in past. Well, I do hope you remembered my contact number, if not here it is at 012-200 6599...

Take Care and See ya soon...
