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.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
