Yep, imo you're pretty naive. IT WAS STOLEN, not lost.. as much as we'd like to comfort you over your loss, it's pretty un-productive the way you're trying to get it back.

jesgirl is really a girl...
thank you for those who have responded in this thread, positive or negative, people who speak up for me, whoever it is. appreciate your opinions and suggestions. i hope this thread is to spread the word for my camera, not a place for argument. i do not know any of u, no point creating a racket here.
i do admit i am naive hoping to get my camera back. but at least i tried to do something about it rather than just sitting here doing nothing. u will understand my feelings if u have ever encountered such things. u will be merely desperate and will try all possible ways that may help to get it back.
i lost my fujifilm 40i last year during a holiday trip (jiuzhaigou, china). it happened in a busy eating house. sometimes i feel the heartache not just becoz losing a camera, but the many pictures i have taken in the 128mb card. so it's not just "forget about it" and "get a new one". it's all your valued photos.
i'm sure many of u have heard of the recent accident in jiuzhaigou. while feeling sad for those people, it kinda reminded me of my lost camera. and alas! i lost another camera again... think i'm going to develop a "camera phobia"...
if u have noticed, i have not used word like "thief" or something. i do learn a lesson and i just take it as someone has just picked it up. i do not even blame that person. whoever he is, if he happens to see this thread, just hope he will return to me. maybe people will start telling me to wake up again, but can't i just let out some "gas" here? there's already nothing much i can do. i will definitely have to get over it... though it will take time...
thanks again for reading this thread.

Sorry to hear about your situation.

Again.. I am sorry for your lost.. making a police report is the best thing to do.
It is also my believe that Jamesong meant well with his postings, and was saying that we should be careful that it does not imply that cs members are thieving people. As far as my contact with cs people.. they have all been honest, friendly and nice people to be around with.
So guys and girls ligthen up. The theft is serious.. the comments were serious too.. but lets take it in good nature, and culture, and be mature about things.
Many occasions in life we say and write things at the spur of the moment.. as is both jesgirls and jamesongs postings are. nothing should be held against either. Some it will sting.. sometimes it will humour.. so again.. lighten up guy and girls. I have learn thru bitter experience.. that before you say anything or do anything.. you should take a step back and ask yourself what are the consequences of writing that or saying that.. or doing that.. as manager said.. he was writing in a heat of anger.. not a good thing.. take a deep breath next time.. and see how you will write differently.. it helps.
I am not flaming anyone.. and not stabbing anyone.. just saying my peace.

I think its time to put this thread to rest - commiserations to Jesgirl for losing something which she probably holds dear, but realistically speaking, the chances of the person who took it being a ClubSNAP member is very very very slim (% of members vs population of Singapore), and the chances of them being a ClubSNAP member and feeling guilty enough to return the camera even with amnesty is even slimmer.
To stop this thread from degenerating, I will now lock it.
