Christmas 2005 has just brought me lessons too expensive to bear. I was victimized by what appeared to be a female Salisi Gang member who took all my valuables while I was taking a shower inside my house on the morning of the 25th. Her stash included money, all my jewelry and my gadgets (including an expensive one I was reviewing for MB). The only survivor of the incident was my iPod which wasn’t discovered by the Evil Bitch as it was in one of my old bags.
It shudders me to think how I could have welcomed this woman who applied as a nanny just because she was a Cebuano-talking kababayan. I am still thankful that she has not taken an interest in running away with my kids and that we are all right after this incident. I never thought this would happen to me but it has. This has made me realize that we are much in danger in our own houses as we are outside in this big stinking city.
I am still in a daze but determined to catch the culprit at all cost, with the police’s help. Luckily, this criminal left some traces and I have tracked down some of her victims who also opened their houses to her and lost their cellphones in the process. Would you believe????
To all my friends who greeted me last Christmas, sorry if I asn’t able to reply… now you know what happened. MSS (My Special Someone) has once again replaced his present with a Samsung and indeed, I have no more doubts as to the goodness of his heart. In the meantime, life goes on. Of course I am depressed and the New Year is a swell excuse to start all over again.
