This post is very timely since I just got a forwarded email from Tita Mavic about a hold-up/almost rape incident which happened in a parking lot in Katipunan Avenue.
So… I was talking to my officemate Miss Delia and she told me this scary robbery modus operandi she encountered yesterday.
Whether you are riding a taxi, an FX or your own car make sure to always LOCK YOUR DOORS. I know, I know… sometimes we tend to forget since we sometimes drive or get on a ride with so many things going on in our heads.
So Miss Delia got on a taxi yesterday and while sitting through traffic, she said that two teenagers opened the cab’s driver-side door. Luckily, the driver was able to close the door right away.
Apparently, may nangyayari na pala na ganun. These robbers just open car doors then get inside the vehicle and declare a hold up. I just can’t believe they’d do this kahit na kalagitnaan ng traffic. My gosh.
Sana lang the MMDA would be quick to spot crimes like this, the same way they are able to quickly spot that you swerved or made a wrong turn.
Just telling you all… lock your car doors!
And ladies… like I told you, always bring pepper spray! Better din kung may stun gun and of course, always be alert and HA-YAH!!!
Practice kicking, tumbling and jumping. Indira and JC laugh at me when I do stunts inside the elevator, pero I’m practicing my moves kasi. You know, feeling Michelle Yeoh in Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. HAYAAH!
And the stilettos… secret weapon yan. Thank you JANILYN SHOES, sponsor ko pala. Ahahahaha!!!
Oh, and I’m reposting what Tita Mavic sent me regarding the grocery store incident.
