where did you park? inside the parking lot building or outside?
i also go to sm sta mesa for some errands but i never leave my bike for more than half an hour and i use a masterlock to lock it. and i use my beater bike for that purpose. and if its dark, i park inside the parking lot building where the bike rack is lit. but if its daytime, there's a bike rack outside, dun ko na lang pina park.
it safer parking and locking your bike outside coz lots of people can see it, parking it inside the carpark is riskier coz the thief could be driving a car, they can easily cut the lock and put it inside the car without anyone noticing it!
i myself have a beater bike, i dont even have a bling bike right now , i feel safer with my beater bike, so even if my bike was stolen , it would not be that hard on the wallet!
@ batutabs, thanks for the pic @ mountguitars, i parked it at the space outside before the entrance of the pay parking, i also used a master cable lock, the guard just told me that how can it happen if i really locked my bike and i told him that im not stupid that i will leave my bike unlocked
