Further to my previous blog on Snatch Thieves, I am still on the constant lookout for a bag of sorts that I will feel safe carrying.
I was out at lunch with a friend just now when I came across a little stall along the walkway which sold bags, purses and wallets. I asked the lady if there was anything that I could carry whereby I will feel safe from potential snatch thieves. The woman comment was that if one is already a target of the snatch thief, it would not matter what he or she is carrying, it will be snatched away. However, we should not make it too easy a target.
Hence, she recommended a waist pouch. I said "But I don't want to look like the auntie at the pasar malam wor!!". Opps.. did I un-knowingly insulted a lot of people... plus this particular sales lady...as she was also wearing a waist pouch :P.
I suppose it depends on the type of the waist pouch that one selects lor. If I chose the canvas or plastic kinds, then perhaps I would look like the pasar malam auntie.. especially in shorts, t-shirt, slippers and no makeup hahaha. The saleslady recommended this particular one to me.
The asking price was RM89. Told me that it was leather and it is very hardy and the strap is anti-slash. Mmm.. worth considering if it will afford me some little assurance that snatch thieves hardly target pouch bags carriers. Anyway, after a bit of haggling, I got the bag for RM62.
Mmm.. wonder if I will look okay in my work clothes and the pouch bag?
