Safety on Deck: Things to Consider

It doesn’t matter whether you’re on a beach holiday in the Balearics or sailing on a cruise ship through the Caribbean Sea, your personal safety is always going to be of paramount importance.  While the crime rate may be lower than perusing the busy streets of a thriving capital city, you can never be too sure and, as always, it’s better to be safe than sorry. 
 
Your personal safety is always going to be one of the main things you should consider when booking your holiday. Whether you’re aboard the Adventure of the Seas or strolling through a Turkish bazaar, as long as you have a bit of common sense and keep your wits about you, you can’t really go far wrong. 

Use your Safe
Anything you don’t need during your trip – passports, tickets, wads of cash – pop it all into the safe in your cabin and leave it there. It’s far safer doing this, than carrying it about on your person. Imagine if you left your bag somewhere on board and it wasn’t handed in? You could lose it all. 

Don’t Take Valuables
Do you really need that expensive watch or that platinum necklace during your cruise holiday? They may be pretty and something to flaunt, but they’re best kept at home without the risk of loss.

Be Careful
While the crime rate may be low, it’s always possible to be a victim of pickpocketing, especially when you’re off the ship and exploring the ports of call. Keep your belongings close when walking around town and avoid veering away from the recommended routes. 

Report Suspect Behaviour
If anything disagreements should occur in your vicinity, mention it to a member of staff. Don’t try and diffuse situations yourself – it’s just not worth getting involved. 

With plenty of amazing bargain cruise deals available nowadays, you can bag an incredible cruise holiday within a fantastic budget. Stay safe and enjoy a superb sojourn on the ocean.

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
