Just a few moments ago, my friend, Kai Chin came to my house to collect some stuff. When he came in I didn't realize he had a bike. He left it out in like what.... 5 minutes?
Most of the locals here are nice. In an event where someone dropped something (ie a wallet or something valuable), most will return it. Even by mail or dropping by your house even if they don't know you. That was my experience when I lost my bus pass.
BUT, this time wow... no words to say... total shock.... just like that a £40 bike is gone. Pity Kai Chin. That a-hole who stole his bike probably had no money to get back to their little tiny hut in Timbaktu.
