The more I think of this, the more I get myself worried.. so, I shall just pen it down, and let it pass..
Last 2 week, after office hour, I was walking towards my car in the car park, and knowing that the recent cases involved in shopping mall, I decided to keep myself alert, and make as swift as for my action. Each time when I am in the car, I will first step on the brake to lock my doors even before I start my engine. I have heard so much of cases, that YES, I admit nowadays I have become more 'scary' cat than before. I remembered those days, when I drive, my friend will always remind me to 'lock' the door..
What happened last 2 week, was that when I am in the car, someone appeared out of no where!! When I locked the car, and about the start my engine, I saw this guy pretend 'turning' away from my car!! But from the action, I can guess that he was actually trying to 'chase' me BUT make a turn when I locked the car door.
I kept thinking on the bad side of what can happened if I am 'late' in locking the car! I was totally freak out, and each time now I walked at the car park, I become more and more 'careful'. Even at home, I will make sure all the grills are lock at all time, as I am really 'freak' out by reading all the news about robbed or hurt!
I can say, if I am not hurt, at any point, I don't mind losing those monetary stuff. Guess I am getting more paranoid as being a single parent, I really afraid the bad happened, and no one is there to care for Princess. I pray each day for my safety, and may Lord let me live till the day I see my Princess able to care for herself, then, I am more than happy to be back to his side.
When I listened to the radio this morning, mentioning on the 'award chart' for the security provision by shopping mall, it kept me thinking.. what had happened to me if I did not have the 'kiasi' attitude and locked my car door every time the minute I enter..
Thank GOD for keeping me safe, and letting me pick up the habit of locking the door.
