I was sitting on a motorbike while my boyfriend was driving. Two other motorbikes started following us and the other one drove next to us and pulled my bag, which had a strap over my shoulder and I was holding it tight with both hands between me and my boyfriend. We were on our way back to our room from shopping and dinner. I had my iPhone5, wallet(with little bit of cash, drivers license, three credit cards), some clothes and make-up in there.
