Mysterious black bra

My girlfriends are funny. My mailbox has been filled with emails discussing about the mystery bra.

You see, four of us went to Hanoi together and stayed at ML's serviced apartment. After we left, ML flew off to Hong Kong to celebrate Christmas with her family. When she returned to Hanoi, she was puzzled to find a black bra in her bedroom. That's when things got exciting.

Her imagination went wild. Maybe someone came in and 'used' her bed while she was gone? It's a serviced apartment afterall, the housekeepers come in to tidy up the place everyday.

Fearing that her security had been breached, she was on the verge of calling front office when she suddenly remembered our visit. Surely one of us must have left it behind.

When I received her email, I told her the La Senza bra isn't mine. I don't remember having one like that. Funny it doesn't belong to my friends too.

It was weird. Everyone had different theories about how it may have ended up in her room. Maybe it belongs to her other friend who came to visit after we left? Or perhaps someone really had a secret rendevous in her absence?

ML was quick to confirm that she had never seen any La Senza shop in Vietnam, so it is unlikely to belong to a local.

The more we discussed, the more mysterious it got. Finally I suggested that she take a photo before we make any more speculations.

When the photo arrived the next morning, I had to shamefully admit that it is indeed mine. I had forgotten all about that La Senza bra. No wonder I haven't seen it lately.

ML was so happy that the bra and owner will be reunited soon. We're meeting up early next year when she returns to Singapore. Of course, she's happier that the mystery is solved. Now she can sleep peacefully again knowing that nobody was bouncing on her bed while she was gone!

I don't really miss the bra but I'm just sorry for the panic caused.

Reminds of when I lost a brand new pair of black panties. One wear n they were gone. The mystery remained a mystery till one day I tossed a garment into the waste-bin sitting next to the dirty laundry tub in my bathroom. I realised my mistake just in time and bingo ! concluded tt must have been what happened with the panties -- except back then, I didn't notice!

Kaye - Indeed. It got everyone worried.

Fry - LOL

Amel - And I was the first to deny it was mine... until I saw the picture...

Aunt Lucia - Oh my! You have to move the laundry basket somewhere else before more panties disappear again.

Recently my little 2 year old niece tried to be helpful and offered to put her sister's pyjamas into the laundry basket.
When my brother asked where the pants went to, she said "In the oven." Only then they realised she tossed it down the rubbish chute!

Oh this is exciting :)

A friend of mine here was gone for a month, with her husband, but came home to find a pair of fine gloves in the bathroom. She went around checking with whoever that had visited her prior to their departure, nobody owns that pair of gloves.
It's still a mystery today.
