The thieves will be cursed-to-death

So, I got robbed for the 2nd time in my life 

Thanks to me, the 2 buggers got to upgrade themselves from snatch thieves to robbers…  

When: July 28 (Saturday), around 6.30-6.45 am  

Where: at the doorstep of my company  

The indirect culprit: my boss! Who made me went to work that early. He needed me to prepare something for him to be presented to the bigger boss at 9am that morning.  

How: it’s a Saturday, it’s too early, I did not have the electronic access card (was just being transferred back to HQ, the card was not ready yet) and the guard was no where to be seen. I knocked on the glass panel, creating quite some noise but the guard’s still missing.  

Then, a motorbike came approaching my direction at high speed. Before I could think of anything, 1 out of the 2 fellas dismounted from the bike, walked towards me, armed with knife and instructed me to hand over my handbag and went off.  


I took 1 and a half day off on Saturday itself and on Monday. When I went back to work on Tuesday, I was like a celebrity, having so much fame in the HQ. Almost everyone greeted me this way:  

“Samantha, I heard about your story!”  

Trying to be a good sport, whenever someone asked, “Why didn’t you fight back?” I’d do this:-  

I gestured as if someone had just pierced my abdomen with a knife, I was in deep pain and bleeding, “I did…. I really did….”  

But deep down my heart, I was murmuring: as if you would fight back under the same circumstance… If I DID fight back, not for certain, but in all likelihood that instead of my blog, you’ll be reading my obituary. Choy! Touch wood!  

Because the incident took place right in front of my company’s main entrance, I was interrogated by Gamuda’s security company. The funniest question they asked about was:  

“Why did you act so calm after the incident? Why didn’t you scream?”  

Well, I wished I could do that, BUT what’s the point of me screaming when there’s not even 1 ghost around me that time?

The CCTVs are installed inside the building only, not on the outside…

Maybe the admin should consider putting up sign like this to hoax the thieves a bit?

Inside the glass bottle…

“I want to walk tall, believe in myself, have the courage to ask for what I want and need, and live a life that mattered. I want to wake up in the morning with a smile on my face and know that I am loved and that I belonged. I am desperate to feel worthy and I am hungry for the opportunity to live my fullest potential.” - modified from "The Dark Side of the Light Chasers" - Debbie Ford

Under the apple tree…

"If you are not spending all of your waking life in discontent, worry, anxiety, depression, despair, or consumed by other negative states; if you are able to enjoy simple things like listening to the sound of the rain or the wind; if you can see the beauty of clouds moving across the sky or be alone at times without feeling lonely or needing the mental stimulus of entertainment; if you find yourself treating a complete stranger with heartfelt kindness without wanting anything from him or her... it means that a space has opened up, no matter how briefly, in the otherwise incessant stream of thinking that is the human mind." - A New Earth, by Eckhart Tolle

Inspiring quotes!

If someone prays for patience, you think God gives them patience? Or does he give them the opportunity to be patient? If he prayed for courage, does God give him courage, or does he give him opportunities to be courageous? If someone prayed for the family to be closer, do you think God zaps them with warm fuzzy feelings, or does he give them opportunities to love each other? (God in "Evan Almighthy")
“To love another person is to see the face of God.” ― Victor Hugo, Les Misérables
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” -Mark Twain
Aggie: "But what about the people who hurt you? Don't you ever want to make them suffer?" Norman Babcock: "Well, yeah, but what good would that do? You think just because there's bad people that there's no good ones either? I thought the same thing for a while. But there's always someone out there for you. Somewhere." - Paranorman
“You're only here for a short visit. Don't hurry, don't worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.” by Walter Hagen
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, body totally worn out and screaming "WOOOHOOOO what a ride!" - by anonymous
When you travel, it’s not like you take a part of each place away with you; rather, it’s as if you leave a part of yourself there, like a part of you forever belongs to that place – the time, the people, and the things you saw; and over time, it gets burned deeper into your soul - by anonymous
