Marie Claire Anti-Snatch Theft Campaign

I do love my handbags. There's a reason why in the first place I bought them. They are pretty to me. But most importantly, they carry MY LIFE in it.


They say we can tell a woman's personality just by seeing what's inside her bag (or maybe even just look at the bag), right? So yup, my handbag is pretty much my life. I have most of the things I need, in it! And that is why my handbags are always heavy... But honestly, I hate to tot around in heels with my heavy handbag... I really wish I could just leave something out. But I really can't help it... I need, to stuff lotsa things in my handbag! Those are my essentials and necessity. I'd feel insecure without them!
(But sometimes, I do wonder.. why do I need to bring at least 3 mascaras around? Sigh....  The answer is, I reallllllyyyy don't know whyyyy....tsk)






I once read somewhere, that a woman without her handbag feels as lost as a wanderer in the desert. LOL. It's actually true! I really can't imagine having no handbag.. The handbag is our movable base of our supplies - a warehouse of our expected needs! haha. Right girls? And that is why it's such an important thing in our life...  SO. YOU. REALLY. CANNOT. TAKE. THEM. AWAY. FROM. US! >_<

But the sad and scary thing is, SO MANY people have been a victim to this! I'm talking about snatch thieves! Goshh... I hate them so much!!!! They're not only take your money, but they take away half of your life in it! Your ID, your license, your credit cards, your membership cards of some clubs/society, your house/car keys, your phones,  your pantiliners/pads...and everything!!! Eeeeee. I hate them!


I've always been scared of walking alone...or even driving alone these days. Our city is not safe anymore.. I'm sure, you girls have friends or family who have experienced having their bags snatched, even in a broad daylight, right? I do, one of it was Tammy. =( Luckily she did not injure herself that severely... But my dad's friend was once in ICU because of this stupid snatch thieves! Some have suffered bruises and injuries as a result of being dragged along the tar road...some even, died.

In the majority of cases, the snatch thieves are never apprehended, let along brought to justice for their cruel misdeeds. Like Tammy's case for example, she made a police report...and the police pay no attention to her case and just ignored it as she's "survived" from it! Goshh... I really don't understand why do these people just take this thing lightly??! >_<



Anyway.. I found a video on snatch theft on YouTube... It was in April 2011! They're not only looking for victims along the streets..but passengers in the car as well??! Goshh...now this is really scary!

Look, it only took them 1.5 seconds to stop, break, and take your belongings!! It all happened so fast!! So please, please pleaseeee...be careful girls, when you're outside walking or driving! (This is a reminder to myself too)

I really hope there will be a stricter laws to curb snatch thefts!




Anyway... When we carry our handbag, fear shouldn't have to be a worry. So Marie Claire is launching its awareness campaign ‘Reclaim Our Streets’ in an effort to take a stance against snatch thefts in Malaysia, as well as to highlight the issues surrounding violent snatch thefts that deliberately target women. The campaign will involve encouraging members of the public to sign Marie Claire’s anti-snatch theft petition from May 2011 until July 2011, after which Marie Claire
intends to submit the petition to the Home Ministry, complete with the signatures collected over those three months.

So when I heard about this, I did not think twice to attend the event and sign for this petition! And you should too! I really hope you are able to support this.. You could support this by clicking on to: marieclaire.com.my/petition. They are presenting a letter with points for change along with your signatures to the Ministry of Home Affairs by the end of the campaign!


Looking forward to seeing your name on the list!!!

I Got My Own SUV Now!!

Look!



Isn't this cool??! To have your name as your plate number! WAN 1! hahaha ;p
Hmmm...I wonder, how much does this cost.. Could be over 100k, eh? Oh well... I don't know. I don't know much about cars. Cuz usually, all the men in my life, would take charge of it! Heeee. Like how much does this cost..bla2..what color to buy... what type... where to get this and that.... when is it due to change the oil err..stuff, and yadda yadda yadda..... I never really know about these stuff.. =/

I just know how to drive (professionally. LOL - my brother was impressed with my driving skill! And I'm impressed when he said that too! hahaha ;p) Oh, and also... I know how to load my shopping stuff into the boot too! haha. The rest.....like the engine, ermm.... "tuning", tires, err...brake pad, brake disc what so ever stuff that I always hear they're saying (but dunno what the heck it is), I never really pay attention to them.. Erkk... What a useless car owner/driver! =P

Anyone... care to teach me what's this and that?? I've been driving about 5 years.. But I know nothing about cars! Hehee. Typical woman! ;p
So..when people asked me, "So if you don't know anything about car, then what are you going to do if something happen?"

I replied....   "I cry".

Then this fella ask another question, "So... Does crying going to help you with the problem, miss?". Pffft... Ok...Fine mister. You're right... I'll learn soon from someone kayyy.... But oh well mister, let me tell you somethinggggg... Apparently, yes crying DID solved my problems before this! Hahaha... ;p

I encountered a few probs with my car before...and not knowing what to do, but just cry and cry.. And felt so scared and imagined that my car is going to blow up and imagined that I had to walk home late night.. and tell my dad that I just burned the car that he gave me, and made it explode.... hahahah...
That's what I always do when I'm so scared. I'm starting to imagine weird things! LOL..

But anyway.. The conclusion of the story is..... In the end, yes, crying did solve my problemssss! Cuz I called someone to rescue me, and make my problem as theirs! hahahahaha ;p



XOXO,
S.
