Hello, fellow forumers. It's sad... It's a sad time for me. A very, very sad birthday & Chinese New Year for me.
Last Mon., my beloved ASUS P525 was unwillingly taken away from me. My P525... was stolen.

Last Sun. night, I was doing my assignments til' 3am, Mon. morning & went to sleep half an hour later. I'm sure y'all can imagine how tired I was. My P525 was placed on my study table being charged. My housemates slept a little earlier than me.
Later, I was surprisingly waken up by my housemates at 9am. 2 of them told me that their handphones & wallets were gone. Startled, I looked at my table to see if I'd lost anything & it dawned on me rather shockingly - My P525 was gone along with its charger! Even the wall power socket was still turned on.
I can't believe that we were so tired as to not realize the culprit(s) coming into our rooms. There were no signs of forced entry as the doors were intact. The culprit(s) must've had a duplicate key(s) / some means to open the doors, / climbed in through the windows as we were just staying on the 1st floor & our windows were opened.
Later, my housemates & I made a police report. My case was considered more minor than my housemates whom, besides their handphones, lost their wallets which held their MyKads, ATM cards, money & other personal belongings. Fortunately, my wallet & its contents weren't stolen. Even so, I lost my P525 worth RM 2599 & many, many years of priceless data in it! Furthermore, it happened 2 days after my birthday & 3 days before the Chinese New Year, & the culprit(s) dared to act even when we were in our rooms sleeping! F*CK!!!
This thread is created to inform my fellow forumers & readers out there to be on the lookout for my P525 & to educate y'all to take great care of your precious belongings. That includes backing-up your data often. If y'all happened to find / bought it, / find someone attempting to sell it, please inform the relevant authorities and/or return it to me. My P525 means a lot to me, materially & sentimentally.
