How I Always Manage to Keep My Personal Items Safe

Walking the streets even during the day can be a tense experience for a woman. There are quite a few fears and doubts that I often have when I’m out, particularly alone. One of the main ones is how to keep my personal items safe. We all carry things with us when we’re out, so coming up with ways to make sure these things are secure is very important.

I have come up with a number of techniques and ideas to help achieve this. And I’m going to share with you my list of suggestions. Hopefully, you will find these ideas helpful, and you’ll use them to keep your possessions safe and secure as often as you possibly can.

Be Vigilant

The most obvious point to make is that you need to be vigilant at all times. This means being aware of whatever might pose a risk to your stuff. This could be pickpockets, or people acting suspiciously. It might even be natural hazards like the wind, rain or construction equipment. You need to keep an eye on your surroundings as well as your stuff. If you keep your eyes peeled and remain vigilant, you will cut down on the risk of any theft or loss of your possessions while you’re out and about.

Carry a Handbag

I always make sure I carry a handbag with me when I leave the house. And I don’t mean a clutch bag; I’m talking a proper handbag here! Like the leather bags you can buy that are durable and spacious. The great thing about a handbag is it gives you somewhere to store all your important stuff for convenience and security. A handbag is an essential item in a woman’s personal life. So make sure you never go out without one. There are a lot of things you’ll need to carry with you, so you need to make sure you have the space for all of them.

Blend In

It’s a fact that people who look out of place are more likely to be targeted by thieves or pickpockets. That’s why it’s important to try to make sure you blend in as much as possible. Before visiting somewhere as a tourist, I try to familiarise myself with the area. Stopping in the middle of the street to get your map out and check where you’re going is a dead giveaway you don’t belong. Try to blend in with everyone else and you’re less likely to be targeted.

Techniques to Avoid Snatchers

Now, there is always the risk of purse snatchers, though they appear to be less common these days. But even still I think it’s important to come up with techniques to avoid them.  One way to avoid snatchers is to make sure you dress in a scruffy, unfashionable way. This will help to make you an unappealing target for criminals!

There are a lot of risks such as loss, theft and damage. So, by using these suggestions you should be able to make sure you keep everything as safe as possible.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
