“Guard your coconut!” Desmond Tan commands as he protectively cradles said coconut in an Instagram post he shared on March 5. However, it looks like his mobile phone was the one that needed guarding, because the very next day, the actor revealed that it had been stolen in what we have learned was actually a pretty terrifying robbery.
The 33-year-old actor recounted the events of that fateful day to 8days.sg in a phone interview last Thursday (March 12), and as it turns out, not only were things a lot more dramatic than that, it could actually have been much worse. Like, “I might not even be here talking to you now” worse.
According to Desmond, the incident happened on the second day of his holiday in Bali with friends. “Everything seemed normal before that,” he recalled. “I went out for lunch, I went to the beach to surf, I had a massage, then I had dinner before going back to the villa at around 8 or 9pm.”
