Be alert....

My buddy Annie was supposed to meet me at a cafe on Monday night, with her hubby along. But we waited long enough and they didn't show up, not even a call/sms. Her sister called me in the end and informed me that she lost her purse at a petrol station!

We guessed they must be at the police station so we made our way there around 11pm and true, they were there. Annie said the snatcher must have followed them all the way from the bank (she was at one of the bank at town earlier on) to the petrol station and when the husband went down to pump petrol, the fella opened the door and grabbed her purse which she actually sat on!! Everything happened so fast she couldn't even manage to record the car plat number.

Sigh, what happened to the society these days? I'm asking all of you especially the ladies (and myself) to be extra careful with your hangbag/purse whenever you go. It doesn't matter if your partner is with you cause if those people want your money, they'll find a way to get it anyway.

The next day, a kind hearted lady found the purse somewhere in the town area and called up Annie. Well, she lost some money, but at least all her important documents are still there.

  1. ladies,we know that they are monkeys lurking but then again there are measures we can take,,,such as

    always walk again the traffic flow and with your sling back facing the side of the road.

    lock the door as soon as you get it, don't have to wait the auto one

    everytime when finish the bank errands make sure you are alert that no one keeps following you.

    many many more lah, just be careful ya

  5. This incident is terrifying, Luckily the snatch thief only grabbed her purse and left her untouched. Imagine if she were held at knife-point.

    Thanks for sharing. I'll share it with my family and to be more alert.

  12. Eugene, thanks for sharing the tips! I strongly agree with this one, lock the door immediately once we get in the car.

    Alice Law, Pete, Armstrong, Yan, you're welcome! Let's be alert all the time!

    Yvonne, Anggie, Mummy Gwen, yes she's consider lucky indeed.

    Shirlexia, no where is safe these days... =_=

    SK, agree. It's not that we like to curse people, but those people really left us no choice...

    mNhL, agree. Some even scarier!

  13. Yeah, it happened all the time! So, I seldom bring along my purse or bags when I go out unless I travel far. I stopped wearing gold bracelet or necklace since a couple years back after my 10 year old boy asked me to do so. He's now 14! It's better to be humble than showing off everything. Take care & have a lovely evening.

满点肌

Just a short post before the weekend arrives! =)

I've been drinking this collage drink for about a week already.....

It's from this brand, 满点肌, a product from Japan

10 bottles for the price of RM145

According to the SA, this collagen drinks will make your skin flawless after consuming for a period of time. And now after a week of consuming it, I did not see any significant improvement on my face. But one thing I realise is that my nose has become smoother and less blakcheads! Not sure is it the results of this drinks, but to me it's still a good news! =)


Anyway, my main purpose wasn't to buy this collagen drinks at first, I was looking for the eye mask actually, after reading the positive comments from Female magazine. 6 eye mask for the price of RM 155


The SA told me if I buy their collagen drinks, I'd entitled a 40% discount for the eye mask (yea, business tactics) So that's why I ended up buying the collagen drinks (which I never had before, cause I was worried…

Can't think of a title now...

Got to sleep soon, just wanna come in here to make my blog a bit alive, haha!

2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…
