That day I read Daily Express and saw the title “Sabah is the Safest State”. Seem like someone can’t wait to blow the trumpet, as if it is a big achievement. If you remember my blog last time, I wonder if the remote district police also asked the kampung people to take a plane to KK police HQ to report the crime.
To see how safe our place is, just wear shiny jewellery, take a big handbag and walk on the street. If anything happens to you, the insurance company will not pay you coz you intentionally exposed yourself to life-risking crises that generally all locals would avoid doing.
I am not going to have a long talk to prove if the statistics is valid. No matter it is correct or not, we need to learn to protect ourselves. I travel alone quite often so I always got a Hot Pepper Spray with me. I bought it last year and gee… no expiry date one. Not sure how long it can last. Otherwise I can use it to season my burger before it expires.
At home, I also got something to protect myself against those burglars that break into my house. See the picture below…
Aiyak, sorry lah, not this one… No, I don’t have this thing next to my bed. No, I don’t plan to nail it to the brain of the burglar so he will become retarded for the rest of his life. I also will not use it to nail the leg of burglar so he can’t escape. No… I will not use it though I know it is ten times more effective than baseball bat.
Ya, this is the one. I bought this baton at Karamunsing’s Parkson. Cost me only RM7… Later I will buy another one to put in my car, mainly for “self-defense”, for example, breaking someone’s car window, show it during a negotiation… Hockey stick is also cool. Haha… people would think that I am a sport lover if they see me buying baseball bat, hiking stick, spear and hockey stick.
Below are more recommended weapons to have. Get them if you can:
