and the bag belongs to...

I guess I wasn’t the only person eager to know the fate of Mr. K’s bag, eh? Well, sorry I took so long to continue. Have been super duper busy lately.

So what happened when Mr. K reached Subang Perdana police station?

He saw the bag and it definitely looked like his!

Ooops, don’t get excited yet. It looked like his. It might not be his. American Tourister surely produced more than one bag with the same design. The bag could belong to anyone.

It wasn’t easy to convince the police that he was the rightful owner. They asked him to describe the things he put inside the bag. So he did, fortunately he remembered what they are because he did the packing (and repacking of his wife’s stuffs). Satisfied with his description, the police opened the bag. Bingo, the stuffs matched his description perfectly!

So how did the bag travel all the way from KLIA to Subang Perdana?

Apparently a guy saw the bag being left behind and took it with him, with the intention of returning it. But without any info of the owner, how could he? He lived in Subang Perdana, so he took the bag to the nearest police station. He told them that he found the bag at KLIA and he wanted to return it. He intended to open the bag to find some info about the owner, but he wanted the police to be his witness.

The police took the guy’s details and told him to leave the bag there. They called KLIA police station and asked if there was any report of a missing bag. True enough, the bag matched the description of Mr. K’s bag. Thus they called Mr. K and asked him to come over to Subang Perdana police station to check it out.

Mr. K was so happy that he found his brand new bag with all the brand new goods he bought throughout the trip. His wife would get back her SK II and other things too. His son would get back his favourite casual bag. Mr. K himself bought a lot of nice chocolates in Jakarta that he put in the bag - he gave them all to the police as a token of appreciation. Thus no chocolates for us the officemates :-p

Well, forget about chocolates, we were just happy to know that he found his bag. The incident had a lot of significance to Mr. K and everyone around him – about what to do when you lose your thing, about regaining confidence in the police force, about honest people still exist in this country, about having faith etc.

It took just one simple incident to make us learn a lot.

Life is indeed amazing!

P.S.: Mr. K did contact the good samaritan who returned his bag, but the guy (the good samaritan) was too busy to meet him (Mr.K). All said and done, may God bless his kind soul.

It is an excellence story by story teller talent. I do hv different kind of small experience. It's related to the issues of saying 'thank you' as per u mention that Mr K so busy to contact the '?' person whom sincerely collected the bag from the tarmac.

About 4 yrs ago, it happened at Melawati Maybank ATM. Busy day. Myself, from the car park walked slowly to the ATM machine and there are guy seem mad towards the ATM machine. He knock and kick the machine a couple of time and walk off. Then, I arr at the front of the ATM Machine. Suddenly, the machine had produced so much cash. It come out just like, I win the jackpot. I did scanned around, no body care or realized it. I collect the cash and u know how much is it? RM 30,000.00. The God really tested me bcoz at that particular of time, I really required cash for certain reasons. But, it is not my money. And nobody moneys? So guest what happen to the RM 30,000.00

ooops.. my mistake, the last few lines are a bit vague. actually it was the other way round - the good samaritan was too busy to meet mr. k. hopefully they'll get to see each other soon.

wow, that certainly sounded like las vegas jackpot! knowing you, you would never go against your military principles. so i guess you brought the money inside the bank and return it?

JaJa'Z said...

uik..30 ribannn???

PENA CELORENG said...

Emmmm. m just get one guess.

As i mention earlier, i really req the cash (at that time) and nobody around and realized it). So I tick off one of the my shirt button and slump the money into the left and right of my belly under my shirt, then button it back. Walked slowly while eying around and reach the car. Get in the car and drove to the the empty car park near the Pasar malam. Slowly, count the money. Yess, it is RM 30,000.00. But I only required for RM 18, 360.00. In my mind, why not i used it for the while (mcm pinjam kajp gitu). If there are claimers later, I will return the money. If not, i do not have plan for that yet. Will decide later. cont...

dieya said...

RM 30,000 is indeed a great temptation. tapi kalau pinjam tanpa pengetahuan tuannya, doesn't sound right. if the owner asks for it immediately, ooops, someone's in trouble.
next episode...

Part III (LAST): As i mention earlier, duit tu tak ada tuan kan?. Kan? Kan? (cakap laju 2 x Kan); so nak minta kebenaran dgn sapa ekks?. After waited for 3 weeks (3 x friday passed), and 3 X announcement at the nearest mosq (Masjid Melawati), on top of that, I had put a A4 notice size at the ATM machine Wall, yet no body has come over to claim the money. As stated by the MR Founder Regulation and Policy, anything that you found and no body claim it after 3 x friday, so it is yours. Yahooooooooo. Joliiiiiiii











How ever, the money I do not use it to pay the RM 18,..... Accidently at the same time, Idris Jala ada major finance problem at MAS sehingga nak kena jual bangunan MAS at Jln Tun Ismail dan suruh staf berhenti. So the money RM 30,000.00, I dermakan kepada MAS untuk selamatkan MAS supaya staf-staf MAS (termasuk Dieya) terus dapat gaji setiap bulan dan dapat jalan-jalan cari makan. Bcoz of that RM 30,000.00; MAS still survived till now. If not, only God knows.If not, no for Scotland and yr Umrah.

*** THE END***

pena celoreng @ LT KOL Mohd Radzi dan mereka2 yang terima 'sedekah' berkenaan

Niat baik. Tapi...............
WAJARKAH wang yang bukan milik sendiri diberikan pada seseorang dengan niat derma???? apatah lagi dah terang2 wang tersebut keluar dari mesin ATM bank berkenaan???? kenapa tak pulangkan pd pihak pengurusan bank dan bukannya dgn notis yang ditampal hebahkan yang mungkin dibuang saje oleh yg tahu akibatnya mengaku yang bukan hak. Tidak jujur sebenarnya tindakan walaupun dengan derma yang dibagi pada MAS.

Agaknya patutlah MAS pun asyik tak sudah2 dengan isu kewangan. Terima wang yang bukan sah sbg derma! lambat laun lenyap jugak MAS ni !!!???!!!Dah banyak sangat permasalahan dalamannya sendiri, dari dulu lagi.

Freethinker flyer - you are damn right with your comments. idris jala and MAS @ pena celoreng patut pulangkan wang berkenaan pada bank terbabit. Itu hak penyimpan2nya. xde istilah pemurah spt yg dikatakan di sini.
