Anyone who has ever lost a prized possession in public will know how frustrating it can be.
Missing laptop at Bugis Junction
According to her, she had found the laptop on a ledge that she was sitting on.
Chan waited for "quite awhile at the same spot" for the owner of the laptop to come back, but to no avail.
She then decided to take matters into her own hand - quite literally - by taking the laptop with her and safekeeping it until she found the owner.
Named laptop "Bella" and offered to foster her
Knowing that "losing a precious item like a laptop is extremely distressing", Chan said that she would "foster" the laptop until the owner contacted her.
She even named it "Bella".
Chan added, rather humorously, that with the coronavirus going around, it is "not safe" for Bella to "sit there exposed by herself, especially without a mask suitable for her size."
Along with her plea for help, Chan attached several photos of her adventures with Bella.
In her first photo, Chan specified that the laptop was found outside the ATM and money changer at Bugis Junction.
She also said that she believes the owner is a Malay girl — though she did not explain why.
Offered food to Bella
Chan apparently offered Bella food in the form of Calbee baked pea crisps, Pokka milk tea, and black summer truffle potato chips.
However, she claimed that Bella had "no appetite" as she was suffering from anxiety after being left alone:
Later on, Chan offered Bella Japanese seaweed chicken because she thought she "didn't like junk food," but -- of course -- Bella refused to eat that as well:
In her final photo, Chan can be seen hugging Bella and assuring her that she will find her owner soon.
In the meantime, she promised to quarantine her:
Sanitised, quarantined, and let Bella rest
Chan then attached three videos of her sanitising Bella, letting Bella rest in bed, and even letting her watch a kids show on an iPad.
According to Chan, she has tried to contact Bella's owner via Facebook messenger, but suspects that the owner either does not have the app on her phone, or that she might have messaged the wrong person.
