Stupid snatch thief!

I know it's only the first month of the new year but i can't help the apprehensiveness from seeping in. i m sure lots of people have lots of positive and happy things to be grateful and thankful for and i m sure i have them too. so, why is it eluding me?

on being a snatch thief victim I can't help feeling miffed about the snatch thief incident. i think it's not fair whereby one was a victim but still needs to pay for charges ie. re-doing driving license, ATM replacement card and even Genting card! the "smart" guy at Genting who serviced me said that lost and stolen is the same. How is that so??!!! If i had lost my handbag and everything in it, it's due to my own negligence, hence, my fault. However, i was robbed!! how can that be my fault?? i mean, it's bad enough being a victim, whatmore, one has to go through lots of hassle of cancelling cards and then reapplying for them not even mentioning the trauma or the loss of the material possessions and if that's not bad enough, one has to pay charges for the replacement of cards??!! as if i asked to be robbed!!! absurdity of it all!

on life well, unfortunately, nothing has changed except the fact of promotion and increment. of course, finally, one thing to be thankful for. the $$$! it's not what i had expected but then again, what was there to expect? i m more demotivated than ever. Not that you can really tell that to your boss, right? they'll be more than happy to say adieu! i ve been here for 3 years and what do i have to account for? i see colleagues who deserve what they're due and i have no complains about that. i wish i am just as capable. unfortunately, this goldfish memory of mine is rather selective and has decided to forget ALL knowledge that i ve learnt in uni and training. how sad is that? i want to improve but am kinda at a lost. i m even trying to figure out how can i feel as if i know nothing of consequence?

one more thing to be thankful for was that despite the peak, managed to spend time with the bf. our relationship has had it's share of ups and downs and even after weathering 2 years of LDR (which was and still isn't easy) the bf is more loving and caring than ever. he even wakes up most mornings to fetch me to client's place and also most evenings back! however, the bf will be leaving in less than a month and our future itself is filled with uncertainties and what the next step should be. i don't even know if i'll be able to make it for a visit this year. hence, can't help the heavy heart feeling of when will we meet again.

i don't feel satisfied where i m rite at this point in my life but i don't want to sit idle and let time just pass by without me doing something about it. some ppl say that if you were born in the year of the rat and if that year was the rat year, then it won't be a good year for the rat! so, if that's anything to go by, since it's the ox year now, it should be my year. ok. don't really believe this superstition. however, i really want this year to be my year! and besides, i m not getting any younger.

i want to change so many things but dare not make resolutions for fear that it'll be just that once again. however, perhaps, when i do accomplish something or have changeg any aspects of my life may it be physical or mentally, i'll mention it. there's so much to do but i guess nothing in life comes easy. well, for most of us that is.

things to look forward to
1) bkk trip mid year. hope i have a blast!
2) hopefully an OZ trip
3) new horizons??? hehe.. pray hard for me!!! wishing hard!!

a bad beginning

You see... my first week of 2009 didn't start with a big BANG and neither did it proceeded with promises of a great year ahead or a worry and stress free year.

On the very first week, my family fell ill ie flu, sprained leg, sore throat and diarrhoea. Besides that, i was robbed!! My handbag was snatched to be more precise. 6 colleagues and i were happily chatting as we walked to the tmn jaya lrt station where our cars were parked about 7 ish pm whilst carrying our heavy laptop bags and the goodies we bought from our client. Out of nowhere and in slow motion (well, at least it felt so to me at that time) my right arm was tugged forward. And slow realisation sunked in that my handbag was being snatched! As i reached my left hand towards my right side to grab on to my bag, the bag strap broke and the idiot sped off with it.

Initially, i was rather calm, cool and collected. In fact, my colleagues didn't realised what had happened until it was too late. They thought that it was i who yelled when it was the colleague who was walking in front of me who screamed. I asked my colleagues to walk towards the car park area and not linger by the road.

As i frantically called my bf to convey the news, i felt numb and then shaky. i mean, u always hear this kind of news involving other people and i have always say it's God's blessings that i've never been part of statistics as i used to walked to school and back and even to uni taking the lrt and bus. I guess those lucky days are over. Maybe i've lost God's blessings for now.

The worst part is, before the incident happened, my instincts were telling me to move my handbag from my right shoulder to my left as the road was by my right side. However, the weight of my laptop bag was killing me and so were the large plastic bags of goodies that i was carrying that i told myself to just hang on as we were reaching the parking lot soon when the tragedy occurred.

So, lesson learnt and warning to everyone out there:
1) always be aware and alert of your surroundings!! never take things forgranted even in the safety of a group.

2) always hold your handbag on the opposite shoulder facing the road.

3) keep your hp/cards in your pockets if possible.

more "worse moments"...
1) after completing my police report that nite itself, the policewomen asked me to pay RM2. "uh.. hello???!! I was just ROBBED??!! where got money la!!" i had to ask my bf for the miserable RM2. Imagined if i had lodged the police report alone.

2) to remake my driving license, i have to pay at least RM20!!! silly silly. and it seems that i became more scatterbrained that i forgot to bring a driving license pic!! so, i queued up in vain! pffft!!!!

3) to replace my ATM card, i will be charged by the bank! Like HELLO??!!! victim here!! still have to pay all this stupid fees!! mahfan enough have to reapply everything what more i have to pay???

4) Alliancebank was super efficient and fast in sending me my credit cards but guessed wat?? They charged me RM50 each for the replacement of visa and master card without informing me!! what atrocity is this?? I am going to ask for waiver, if not i am soooo cancelling my credit cards!

5) As for Ambank, i have to go to the bank to collect the card and my mum can't collect on my behalf even with written approval. Like HELLO once again??!!!! How to go when i am working??? especially peak period?? sheesh..

and seriously, the inconveniences have yet to stop. sigh.

you would think that i'll be traumatised to go out etc. but i am not. i am just plain pissed at the jerk! Go find your own job and buy things with your own freaking money la! Not to say i am miss rich! my new hp bought by my mum is gone and so is the camera my bf gave me! Don't thinking i even want to get a new hp ever. *sigh*

Seriously, what is our government doing to curb the crime rate? Apparently, snatch thieves are common along the Persiaran Barat road where Nestle, PJ Hilton and Singgahsana is situated. If it is so prevalent, why aren't the policemen patrolling the area? Doing sth at least. The guardman of Nestle told me that one woman was punched last year near Singgahsana and her handbag was taken! Even my bf's friend's mum who works near that area was a snatch thieve victim. Talk about PJ area, on fri, my friend who lives in SS2 facing the ldp told me that her neighbour handbag was snatched right outside her house.

once again.
WHAT THE *TOOT* are THE POLICEMEN or even the GOVERNMENT DOING ABOUT ALL THIS??!!! Aren't the policemen supposed to ensure our safety? Why are all the tamans around ie Tmn Megah, Tmn Sea, Dsara Jaya to name a few are hiring private security guards to patrol the neighbourhood when taxpayers like me are paying tax whereby some of the money definitely goes to the policemen's wages but they don't seem to be doing their job??? Why pay an employee when they're not doing what they're paid to do? What more to say that they're policemen, it's their duty... their obligation to society to protect society's safety!!

I want to do sth about this.. i don't want to just sit idle and be just another victim. If anyone out there knows how i can contribute or what i can start or do to help lessen such victims out there, please, i urge you to let me know.

Are we not safe at all not even a sec, not even in our own homes? My aunt who works as a promoter in 1u mentioned that on Fri night, one of the younger promoters about late 20s took a cab back to section 17. Instead of going home to have a good shower n rest, she was taken to sg buloh and raped for 7hours. When i was lodging my police report, a man came in saying that his bike was stolen and the dudes beside me had their house broken into with laptops etc taken.

Tell me once again... what is
Barisan National or even PKR doing to prevent such atrocities or curb crime rate? Instead of being stupid and childish constantly bickering over God knows what, please, do something about assholes robbers and thieves. I bet you it was probably a stupid malay junkie that robbed me. Sounds racist rite? Well, what are you going to do? Arrest me under ISA?

POLITICIANS and all you super-free-people-with-nothing-better-to-do, instead of protesting against Gaza attacks and all, focus back on your own home country and your own people! To being with, Israel was being attacked by the Hamas. So, they're only defending their own people which is more than can be said for the Malaysian Government who only knowns how to PLAY politics day and night and point fingers.

I am getting so riled up as i blog this that my thoughts are getting so incoherent. How many more people need to lose their money, their belongings, get slashed and hurt by this stupid jerk criminals? Send them back to their countries where they belong! Inprison them! I mean, since Malaysian Goverment is so rich to imprison Raja Petra and Theresa when they've not hurt a single person, why not do something with these brainless people that are prauling about, hurting people and stealing their money?

WAKE UP lah Malaysia Ministers and politicians. Ask yourselves why Malaysians who go overseas don't want to come back! What benefit is there to come back Msia? What is there to be proud of?? Our canggihness in piracy? Our pirated latest movies, pirated goodies like Gucci bags? Our cops who takes bribe? Our ministers who argue in the parliament sessions like a bunch of babies and monkeys?

The sane people here in Malaysia are suffering at the inadequate and inefficient ruling of the Government who is by right, supposed to be representatives for the people. How many of you have friends or relatives or acquaintances that were victims?
Somethings needs to be done...

To go at 11pm/12am or to go tmr 3-5am???

That's the argument my sis n bro were having earlier whilst deciding when to depart for Cameron Highlands- my dad's hometown. In between the
hoo haas, my mum kept calling each of us to bug us to pack up and bring half the house with us. God only knows for what reasons and what exactly is going through that mind of hers.

You see, my mum wants us to bring...
1) her sewing machine and box kit
2) 2 ovellettes just incase she wants to do baking
3) and of course with that, we need to bring her rice flours, plain flours, pineapple jams etc
4) wants us to bring curtains and clothes and what nots

and seriously... the list goes on!!

We have to keep reminding her that we're only going up in a car and not the van that we used to drive about!!! hehe.. such is the insane scenario that is constant in my life evolving around my family!

All i plan to do this CNY is to sleep, sleep and sleep! or perhaps catch up on my movies and series!! hehe. read my novels. basically, just take a break! and i just realise i don't have my trusted camera anymore to take pics, thanks to that idiot machan who snatched my handbag!

ok ok, so it's not definite if it was a machan snatch thief or whatever not... but i can bet with you that 99% of the chance that it is one of
them! ok ok i sound so freaking racist but i can't help it! =p look at our govt and how they handle themselves is just a testament of their intelligence!! maybe not the whole race, but the many that i ve met!

anyways, since it's CNY coming, one of the tradition is to speak of good thingsthat means...
"SEE no evil, HEAR no evil and SPEAK no evil!!! "

Hence, HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR to all you gorgeous people out there and happy collecting ang pows!!! don't forget to collect one for me too!

Sadly, goodbye rat year and hello ox year. perhaps, this year will be the year for the rats.. or at least one of them! *wink*
