Model Answer:
It was almost 3 years ago when I lost my smartphone on a day when I played basketball with my friends at a local playground.

The weather was just perfect in this evening and when I reached the playground to play basketball with my friends, I received a call from my mom on my Samsung smartphone. I can't recall anything about putting the phone somewhere after that. When the dark settled, I headed to my home but not even once did I remember to check if I still had my cell phone with me or not. I noticed it once I wanted to call one of my friends about our classes at around 8:00 pm. But my mobile phone was nowhere around!

As soon as I found that it was missing, I walked towards the field where we were played that evening. After having a good 15 minutes walk, when I finally arrived at the field, no one was there except the security personnel. I searched for my mobile phone for about 30 minutes in and out of the playground, but it was just a resultless effort. I went to the field the next morning in the daylight but still, there was no sign of it. Finally, I decided to give up the hope of getting it back.

Anyway, after losing that mobile phone, I felt a bit sad and dejected because I had to save money to purchase that cell phone. It also had many precious photos and data in it which were also lost forever. Anyway, it was because of that incident, I realized that I needed to be more responsible about my belongings especially those I take outside.
