and to TS,what is the purpose of u lamenting your loss here then disappear?go tell that best friend or bff to pay up la.what do u expect the forumers to do?mourn for your loss? come on if your friend dares to borrow your stuffs for overseas trip,he better have some responsibility.he shld know your gears are not cheap and why din he bring his assuming he knows how to operate dslr,he shld have his own. So is his lost? This kind of thing if i lost,i will tell my friend and tell him i will replace it. If i am out of cash,i just ask for some grace period. If i want to not pay,then i am definitely a screw up bff.
