A fair warning to those who are seldom at home during daytimes. DO check and upgrade your locks, install CCTVs/IP CAMs. I've caught my neighbors stealing water, items and attempting burglary. Yes, that's how bad it is. I'm expecting more of these when recession kicks in. Be safe, not sorry.

I don't live JB but as a Singaporean I travel there alot to shop. Must be careful at all times of your belongings.

Personal experience, walk in groups and have your brother or father or husband at least someone to protect you. And hold on to your children tightly. I was once followed by a drug addict and he kept calling after me. I chased after my father and mother. I was glad he didn't follow me after we exited the small lane.
