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.

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
