Good morning everybody! It really is rare for me to upload a blog post, but I realized this is something worth sharing, so here you go.
It was around 2.40am in the morning on this day (15/5/2010), at that time, I was in my friend's flat , Ismail's flat to be exact, chatting with my friends. For your info, the flat is downstairs and the room door i was in with 2 of my friends were wide open. All of a sudden, we heard a very loud hissing noise outside the room. Then, we saw black gas pouring in into the corridor and right into our room. We were all shocked and surprised. My friend, Pravish, acted on instinct and immediately slammed the room door shut. That was very wise of him to do so. Because we would not know whether the black gas is poisonous or not. The hissing kept going on. Perhaps when my friend slammed the door, the hissing stopped. Pravish and I immediately bolted out of the room to the living room. We saw a fire extinguisher on the ground.
I didn't manage to take a photo of it, so I give you this Google-Imaged file that looks just like the one we saw. So that is what made the black gas and the hissing sound. That's strange, I don't recall my friends having a fire extinguisher in their flats.
We noticed that the sliding door was wide open. We ran out of the flat right to the parking lot outside the flat. We saw 2 guys carrying a set of fire extinguishers, pulling them out of a vehicle's boot and running away. We were able to catch them, beat them up and give them a piece of our minds for real. They will pay for this! We will hunt them down, spray the fire extinguisher all over their freaking faces and let them eat our poop!
Nah, you all know I'm not that evil.
We decided to let them go. There really is no point to cause harm to ourselves (and to our friends) by provoking them to come over. After everyone recovered from the shock, another friend of mine called security. We explained the incident as detailed as possible. Unfortunately, we don't remember which vehicle did they take out the set from. Otherwise we might be able to provide more details. While security was inspecting the vehicles, I actually checked and see for any sign or evidence that they had left.
Too much forensics for me. xD
We headed back to Ismail's flat, had a talk about it, and realized that we did not lock the sliding door. That explains why the pranksters were able to get in the flat and spray the fire extinguisher. You do realize that I mentioned 'pranksters'. Yes, it is very obvious that we were pranked. No one got hurt, no one was still under shock, nothing was lost, so let them go. They mean no harm, just trying to make a prank with us, I see no need to take revenge or kick their asses next time. Besides, it's our fault for not locking the sliding door.
Moral of the story?
Lock the god-damn door!
