I am fuming. First wedding party of the season and it turns out to be a friggin nightmare. Not the fault of the bride and groom of course, but Rumnea was the victim of a bag-snatch during the meal, which saw her lose her Galaxy smartphone, money, moto and house keys and several precious mementoes. It was a small handbag, which she lodged between her bottom and the back of the chair as we were eating. Next thing she knew it was gone and despite querying all the serving and drinks staff, it was nowhere to be seen. She was most likely targeted as I was the only johnny-foreigner at the wedding, and she was the only person to lose her handbag. Which she can ill-afford. We searched high and low once everyone had left the party and then had to get her moto into a tuk-tuk (no easy job, especially when the driver was pissed) to get Rumnea back home. A lesson for everyone - keep an eye on your valuables at all times.
