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!

These are just a few of my suggestions to help keep personal belongings safe when out and about. You’ve got to make sure that you do everything you can to keep your items safe and secure. 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.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
