Theft at Starbarks


Our dear kopi addict TZ who is also the Starbark's honorary ambassador would patronize all the outlets like his 2nd home. I wonder if he has ever seen any untoward shoplifting happening there? I hope TZ would chain his lappie, baby cam and tool bag to his pants as a safety measure. We don't wanna hear TZ crying over any loss!
I always have phobia for pick pockets and have this habit to put my hands over my wallet's pocket when I walked in crowded areas. I have witnessed cases of snatch thieves grabbing unsuspecting victims' handbags along the street. It happened so fast and numbed the witnesses from giving a chase or scream. Usually the victims were ladies and I wonder if men would someday become favourite targets too. 

Do take care of our mum, sisters and female colleagues when out on the streets. I tend to shield them or ask them to walk along the pavements instead and hug their bags real tight.

Cinderella has booked a holiday trip to a surprise destination and Twilight has packed his bags to leave soon! 

Have a good weekend guys!

  1. You'd better chain your wallet to your trousers and better yet, totally leash yourself to the table-leggie at Ol' Town Kopitiam.

    Both of you have a wonderful trip and safe return ya! ^_^

  6. Thing is, looking from the CCTV footage the victim just left her handbag behind the other person's chair. That made it even easier for the pickpocket (lol it's a lady) to do her stuff. Accidents don't happen by accident.

    If you're free I invite you to join in this giveaway of a Commonwealth Games badge at my blog in this post. It's quite simple, there're even hints given, have fun! ^^

  11. Why would you want to carry your LV bag when or if you think you are travelling to a place which could be unsafe? Carry a RM20 bucks pasar malam bag which is presentable is good enough already lah. ;)

    By the way, shouldnt the bag be on her lap all the time rather then being put behind her back? Unless her 3rd eye really can guard it so well. In this case, it failed misrably.

    TZ - What a snob who doesn't visit Starbarks! What's the difference between Starbucks and Starbarks? Both also taste like pricey Ugandan bath water lah.

    Paul J - Go buy an imitation LV bag and pretend it's real so that can be happy.

    Bengbeng - Gee! I am back! Thanks for your kind wishes!
