Stolen Bike's Engine & Trying to be Positive

*comfort food*

Last Saturday, our bike's engine being stolen by some "asshole" thief/thieves.

Ken and I went to Clarke Quay on the same night. He met up with his friend while I celebrated birthday with a few coworkers. My night was fun, we went to Buffet Town for dinner and Shuffle Bistro Bar for some beers. Ken had fun too catching up with his friend since they haven't meet since half year ago. Ken and I went home separate ways, I shared cab with coworkers and reached home around 2am.

After bath and did laundry, I received a message from Ken mentioning that he will be late and was with polices due to bike's engine being stolen. I was surprised to read those news..but too tired to care more that time. Fast forward, we slept in till 12.30pm that Sunday. Ken explained the whole incident to me and I cried hard. This was the most devastating news for me that day. Our bike's engine being stolen and no CCTV footage at the area where he parked his bike. Polices will do their best to investigate and told us we were not first case there..several cases happened before too. No evidences, no witness, hopeless! Life was hard for me as we're trying to save $$$ yet something always got us to spend extra $$. After that, we learn that bike's engines are quite expensive whereas those thief can re-sell them for a few hundred bucks.

Ken was positive all the times. He believes everything happens for a good reason. He even comforted me by bringing me to movie - Batman vs Superman Dawn of Justice. Meanwhile, our bike being towed to workshop and waiting for new engine to arrive which may take 2 weeks. Now, both of us travel via public transports whereas we need to wake up earlier than usual and spend more time in traveling.

This moments, I realized although bike may not be convenience during rainy day but it really save us more time and energy. And I will try to be as positive as Ken too :)

-Think positive, and positive things will happen-

Ugh. I'm so sorry to hear that this happened to you; just remember to stay positive and be glad that this is something that can be fixed, even though it does require a lot of money. Glad Ken is helping the two of you stay positive and sending my best your way! <3
