Bvlgary....? Burglary..... burglarrrriiii... BURRRGLAAARY!!!! ...... its not funny!

My first experience being burglared was during teen.... I rented a small 180 sq ft hostel room during undergraduate study at the University of Buckingham for STR230 a month paid with a STR291 MARA scholarship a month. I entered my room after a good clubbing night out to discover all the new assets that I still owe my credit card were all missing... HiFi stereo, notebook, alarm clock (the reason why I missed so many lectures since), watches, rings, even my brand new socks.....

16 years later... todate, I have been burglared and robbed (even with parangs) more than 20 times. All the burglaries except for that teenage student life, was within the last 2 years at Fasfik outlets at various locations in Petaling Jaya except today. Today, Fasfik Corporate Office and my office at Damansara Perdana was burglared.... a clean sweep sort of speak, the 49" plasma TVs that connects and displayed all realtime cctv videos of all my businesses, about a dozen Computers and other items including various foreign currencies that I safe-kept at office for travelling.

The day before my office was hit, the Mamak store below my office was robbed by a few Indians with Parangs. A few months ago, my dad's law firm Pahamin & Pahamin (Advocate & Solicitor) was burglared.. also at Damansara Perdana.

Barely 3 weeks ago, on the 27th July 2009, Home Ministry via its website started a poll to gauge the public's view on the Country's level of safety and the government's performance in safe guarding the people's safety and security. According to the poll, 97% of the total respondence felt unsafe due to the current high crime rate and 95% respondent felt the government had not done their best to ensure the best safety to the public (see: the Star).

I consider myself part of the 95% statistics that felt more could be done to combat crime and part of the 97% statistic that do not feel safe.

But bitching alone would not reduce the crime rate... thinking outloud and brainstorming on counter measures ... I like the recommendation from my Fasfik Head of Manpower Development, Kamarul Arifin Zainal's suggestion to enrol 100 of fasfik crew as part of People's Volunteer Corporation (RELA)... in fact, I might volunteer to be one too.

Looking for a reliable car workshop is not an easy feat in Malaysia. Many car workshops are known for overcharging and providing poor quality parts.
Image via Auto World Remember the last time you were overcharged for a repair? Yeah, me too.
The good news is you don't have to fret anymore! Car Bengkel, a local app set up in collaboration with the Malaysia Automotive Institute (MAI), aims to help motorists survive this ultimate road challenge.
