Being followed

If you read March's edition of Cleo magazine, there's an article named Survival Cheat Sheet. It teached us what to do in the case of emergencies. There was one which caught my attention right away which is 'Tailed by a Stranger'. This reminds me of the stalker I met 2 years ago which I'd also blogged here.


However, this point focuses on walking home alone while in my case, I was being stalked by a motor cyclist while I was driving. But I guess the 'concept' is almost the same =_=

Here's the tips shared by Cleo on what to do if you're tailed by a stranger:
1. Ascertain if you're being followed or just being paranoid. Cross the road to check but even if they do not follow, exercise caution.

2. Walk briskly like you know where you're going.

3. Try not to look over with the corner of your eyes as this may make you look intimidated. If you must look, turn your entire head around, otherwise use car doors or shop-window reflections.

4. Dart into a shop, public place or well-lit area near a road with cars passing . If it doesnt work, tell the shop's manager or call the police.

If being followed while driving, the safest and quickest way is to drive to the nearest police station.

Will appreciate if you have any other suggestions or tips!
Be safe everybody!

  3. My hubby always tell me, if find someone is walking behind you, just stop and pretend do something, let him walk pass you. Always make sure no one is walking behind us.

  4. This is a scary situation, especially for a lady who is alone. I'm not so afraid of being tailed, but I'm afraid if the stalker/bad guy suddenly stopped my car and rob/kidnap/rape/kill me.

  5. My suggestion is to be alert whenever you are alone outside.

  6. Do not use shortcuts or walk in lonely places. I was stalked by a man once. That was like 18 years ago.

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...

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…
