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

  2. Sorry for your friend and thanks for the alert!:)

  3. Have to be extra careful nowadays. Crime rate is getting worse! Heard so many cases liao!

  4. Damn those snatchers! Hope they will fall down a stairs or something... :D At least Annie got her purse back with all the important documents inside...

  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.

  6. Yah, nowsday people just so ... "crazy" .. really need to be alert all the time especially we r out from the bank , That y i hardly go ATM/bank...
    But glad she found her purse back, at least she still had her IC, CC and so on ... & most important, ur fren was un-hurt . take k

  7. I heard a lot of these stories from my mum and I'm always worry about their safety in Taiping...
    'Taiping' is supposed to be safe! Sigh...

  8. Thanks for sharing this story of your friend and thanks for the reminder. Yes, we have to be alert all the time.

  9. This is really an eye opener. I will make sure to be more alert next time. This is scary.

    Luckily your friend recovered all her important docs.

  10. i really hate those snatch thieves!!! the next thing i really want to happen on them is that they are run over by cars while trying to escape!! that's their karma..

  11. All they want is only money. Some even harm you. That's terrible.

  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.

好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~


BFF trip to Bangkok 2013: The food post

Bangkok is not only a heaven for the men shopping but also food! I've actually Google and blog hopping beforehand to see what's worth to eat at Bangkok, can only chose the most popular ones as we were there for only 4 days 3 nights, a very rush trip.
I've filtered out those food we ate during the trip which I think worth mentioning.
@ Food court, Platinum Mall Green curry chicken rice
Beef noodles
Fruit crepe
The food court is so big here in Platinum Mall, hundreds of tables are provided but almost all are occupied.

Dessert @ Swensen, Platinum Mall

(pale looking face, first day after touching down) Swensen is not in my itinerary, we decided to go here instead of Mr Jones Orphanage at Siam Center cause of the location. Siam Center is further away from where we stay, but Platinum Mall is just about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. End up, no regrets! Much cheaper and yummier compared to Malaysia.

T&K seafood, Chinatown  (It's easier to get here by metered cab)

By far…

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…
