Robi Domingo Moves On From Car Robbery IncidentRobi Domingo said there is no use in getting angry because of the incident that happened on October 8 when his backpack was taken from inside his Toyota Fortuner.
That backpack contains a lot of personal things such as his iPad, mobile phone, cash and even his schedule. It happened as he was attending the birthday party of his Star Magic handler Luz Bagalacsa at 55 Events Place in Tomas Morato, Quezon City.
Robi parked his car along Scout Rallos and left his backpack there. When he returned, his backpack was already gone. The TV host, a former housemate of "Pinoy Big Brother," said the suspect was a professional since he was able to remove the glass wholly and even returned it inside his car.
The situation, Robi said, was taken advantage of since the place was dark and it was raining hard that night.
Although he is still annoyed at what happened, the TV host chose to look at the brighter side of things--at least, no one got hurt. He also added he must be able to move on and take a step forward because there's no use dwelling on such things.
For now, Robi is busy taping for the second season of "I Dare You," the reality show he co-hosts with John Prats, Melai Cantiveros and Denniesse Joaquin.
Meanwhile, Robi admitted his girlfriend, former volleyball player of the Ateneo de Manila University Gretchen Ho, is a big influence in many aspects of his life.
Gretchen is Robi's "life coach," the TV host added. She is a very supportive girlfriend, and very simple in every way.
Even before they became official together, Robi considered Gretchen as a mentor. She has the best understanding of every situation, the TV host said, adding that it was Gretchen who helped him get over what happened.
His initial reaction when he learned what happened was to be violent about it because all his files, contracts and other important things were there in that backpack. But his girlfriend told him to see it as a "blessing in disguise" because he didn't get hurt. She also told him to think that the person needed that amount of money.
