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.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
