Yeah indeed, like your table probably had about 5 facial-recognition CCTV cameras, and directional microphones aimed at it, hence no one was dumb enough to touch your wallet :lol:

Good for you though, what a relief.


an aussie guy with a surfboard was about to sit there and he yelled you having a lucky day there mate! good on ya!
but yeah, the place was well monitored. :D
To get there early is on time and showing up on time is late

Slightly off topic but quite a crazy 'loss'. When I was last in Tel Aviv airport and went for a pee I found a passport and boarding pass balanced on top of a urinal. I took it to the gate the guy was boarding from and asked the desk staff to make an announcement.

It can be worse in winter where you have more pockets to check or wearing gloves makes you less likely to feel anything slipping out of your pockets. Heck, I was about to enter a subway station once and I was fumbling around trying to look for my (return) ticket. Weirdly though, I ended up losing my coin purse but just the purse; I still had all my coins.

While in Singapore it is a good piece of advice in any pickpocketing populated area it is a very bad piece of advice.

Well, it would definitely be unwise to do that in public view. I normally do that in cabs, hotel rooms or in elevators (any safe closed space) before I step out.
