MANILA—You'd hate to lose an iPhone 11 right around this time, considering how new it is and its price.
But that's exactly what actress Patricia Javier managed to unfortunately do Thursday night, saying she is regretting the lost photos of her children more than the smartphone itself.
Javier, who is the mother of two, recounted to Pep the last time she knew she had her new iPhone with her, saying she left the device inside a taxi cab she took on her way to her car.
The reigning Mrs. Universe Philippines said she was on her way home from Tim Yap's Halloween party in Makati when she was forced to take another ride to where she parked because it was raining hard.
She said her phone was a gift from her husband, Rob Walcher, a doctor, and contains precious photos of their kids, as well as some important contacts.
"Kung sino man ang nakakuha, please, pakibalik na lang," Javier pleaded, promising a cash reward in return.
It remains unclear what the specs of Javier's phone are, but the cheapest one can be bought at P47,990. The iPhone 11 models were released just last week.
Javier said that she remembers the body name of the taxi she rode to be "Lazy Taxi."
She did not leave a way to reach her via the Pep article, although she did share that her husband does have a clinic in San Lorenzo Village, Makati.
