LOCK Your Car Doors At ALL TIMES

Always LOCK your car doors if you are waiting inside a stationary vehicle with the engine running.

When we were in Penang, Darling parked our car at a petrol station and proceeded to get inside the store to buy bottled drinking water. Ethan was seated at the front passenger seat while I was nursing Ayden at the back. Luckily it is our habit to lock the doors each time the Daddy gets out of the car because out of no where a man approached our car, knock on the window and asked where the driver is. Before I managed to answer him, he tried to open our car door. My heart dropped that very instant fearing the worst but luckily Darling saw him and quickly run out of the store and started shouting. The man fled. It was 2.30pm. Broad daylight yet this happened.

We were shaken, still are actually each time we think about it. But today I decided to post this to create awareness because after sharing with our friends, we discovered that many still do not lock their cars when they leave it temporarily.

LOCK YOUR CAR DOORS AT ALL TIMES especially if your wife and kids are in it.

    How scary. Yes, must lock cars at all times even though you are the only one in the car. Once you get in, quickly lock the car.
