The answer to this is the cut proof, lockable LogTote bag. Live more, worry less.

The answer is silly Singaporean should not assume everywhere is as safe as Singapore. Be street smart

What surprises me is that the waiter in the black shirt misses it.

He is looking right at the guy as he pulls the purse from the chair.

He practically has to push him out of the way to get to the table.

The young waiter/busboy looked right at him, watched him leave and sat everything down and followed him...

Sleeze bag. . Catch, 6 months in Thai Prison Deport for lifetime!!

6 Months after a thorough lashing and extended "WAI" including hand used to steal properly having finger nails removed using rusty pliers is needed to fill your comment between the lines which I agree with!

Looking at his big paunch, must be a regular on some bar stool.

You really are a fascist aren't you? How do you not know that today he maybe gender neutral or even a female, he may even be pregnant. Don't just assume things, he might be transgender lesbian gay baby carrying man woman neuter?

Bloody he.., It's really surprising that a "senior backpacker" who should know better in exchange of a few minutes of excitement destroys the "young backpacker's" world wide outstanding reputation built-up stone by stone throughout centuries ...;)

So many times i have seen Thais in the buffet restaurants, they leave bags and valuables at an unsupervised table while all of them wandering around at the same time getting food.  

I always make a point to stop and watch in case someone lift the stuff but i never seen it happen.

Agree it happens a lot and it does happen everywhere.

 

Years back I lost an expensive almost new camera from a compartment in a locked filing cabinet in my apartment in Bangkok and the key to the cabinet also missing.

 

I couldn't understand at all how it had happens until months later I bumped into a farang I thought was my best buddy from work with his Thai gf, he had been to my apartment many times.

 

We sat down to have a snack and his gf pulled an expensive camera out of her bag, my camera which I could prove because of a small scuff mark. Questions to the lady indicated it was a gift from bf and also indicated she knew nothing about it's origins.  

 

The lady went walking around and I accused the farang of stealing my camera and he admitted it, his excuse was that he wanted to make his gf happy.

 

He insisted he would reimburse me in several payments over the next few months. Never got one payment, end of friendship. And I became much more vigilant about my property.

 

 

Yep I knew a couple like that, but they today are still getting away with it today. It helps when your family are police and the attorney at a BK Court is your best friend.

Its a bit sad but I daresay the singaporeans might be complicit in this crime.

 

you see, singapore is so safe that you can actually leave your bag at an outdoor cafe table with your mobile on the table and go for a dump…and when you return there it will be.

 

Creates a false sense of security which they find hard to deactivate once they go overseas.

There was a similar time also in Thailand, but way back....You can still experience it in Thailand, but very seldom in touristic spots...

My point that people either are to trusting, dont take due care, or just spend most of their time in la-la land. Especially Thais when theres the distraction of food.

 

And then this is what happens as the smart thiefs know when to strike

 

And it happen to every nationality just chance and opportunity this case was with farangs.

 

I do admit tho, i do take A LOT more care than when i am at the tourist area or the place with many farang.

 

Never have worry to much when in country or suburbia Thailand but still keep on guard.

I can t understand how anyone anywhere anytime is silly enough to do that.

Why laying any temptation in front of any would be thief?  

 

 off topic also but your comment remind me of an ex many years ago..

She was to get work done on her car, so im taking the small change out of the console and anything else i see before she goes.

 

She saw me doing that and blew me up saying 'you think all Thais are thiefs' and ranted on very angrly about farangs think all Thais bad.

 

Then some time later she is looking everywhere for an MP3 player (at those times was quite expensive)

when finally she realise she left it in the glove box of the car.

Mechanic say they never saw it and she never found it again.lol
