(the sun shines no matter what. . .)

Currently experiencing a storm? Worry not because the sun still shines bright no matter how hard the wind howls and the rain pours.



LAUGH so hard that even sorrow smiles at you. . .




FIGHT so strong that even fate accepts defeat. . .




LOVE so true that even hatred walks out of the way. . .



and LIVE life so well that even death loves to see you exist!
--unknown

We should always have the courage to fight for our dreams and continuously move forward!

がんばりますよ!


(better to be paranoid than DEAD!)


Found these on Serdang Story's facebook page. . . Take time to read girls because it's better to be paranoid than DEAD! 


SAFETY SERIES : Prevention of Rape

"THROUGH A RAPIST'S EYES" (PLS TAKE TIME TO READ THIS. it may save a life.) Click Share Button To share it on your Wall. It seems that a lot of attackers use some tactic to get away with violence. Not many people know how to take care of themselves when faced with such a situation. Everyone should read this especially each n every girl in this world.

THOUGHT THIS WAS GOOD INFO TO PASS ALONG...
FYI - Through a rapist's eyes! A group of rapists and date rapists in prison were interviewed on what they look for in a potential victim and here are some interesting facts:

1] The first thing men look for in a potential victim is hairstyle.

They are most likely to go after a woman with a ponytail, bun!, braid or other hairstyle that can easily be grabbed. They are also likely to go after a woman with long hair. Women with short hair are not common targets.

2] The second thing men look for is clothing.

They will look for women who's clothing is easy to remove quickly. Many of them carry scissors around to cut clothing.

3] They also look for women using their cell phone, searching through their purse or doing other activities

Those that are least paying attention to the surrounding while walking would become the most likely victim because they are off guard and can be easily overpowered.

4] The number one place women are abducted from / attacked at is grocery store parking lots.

5] Number two is office parking lots/garages.

6] Number three is public restrooms.

7] Removing the victim from the Primary Location

The thing about these men is that they are looking to grab a woman and quickly move her to a second l ocation where they don't have to worry about getting caught.

8] Put up a Fight or Resistance

If you put up any kind of a fight at all, they get discouraged because it only takes a minute or two for them to realize that going after you isn't worth it because it will be time-consuming.

9] Those carrying “weapons” would be the least likely to be a victim

These men said they would not pick on women who have umbrellas, or other similar objects that can be used from a distance, in their hands.

10] A key in your hand is better than none

Keys are not a deterrent because you have to get really close to the attacker to use them as a weapon. So, the idea is to convince these guys you're not worth it.

POINTS THAT WE SHOULD REMEMBER:

1] If someone is following behind you on a street or in a garage go with you in an elevator or stairwell, look
them in the face and ask them a question, like what time is it, or make general small talk: can't believe it
is so cold out here, we're in for a bad winter. Now that you've seen their faces and could identify them in a line- up, you lose appeal as a target.

2] If someone is coming toward you, hold out your hands in front of you and yell Stop or Stay back! Most of
the rapists this man talked to said they'd leave a woman alone if she yelled or showed that she would not be afraid to fight back.Again, they are looking for an EASY target.

3] If you carry pepper spray (this instructor was a huge advocate of it and carries it with him wherever he
goes,) yelling I HAVE PEPPER SPRAY and holding it out will be a deterrent.

4] If someone grabs you, you can't beat them with strength but you can do it by outsmarting them. If you
are grabbed around the waist from behind, pinch the attacker either under the arm between the elbow
and armpit or in the upper inner thigh - HARD. One woman in a class this guy taught told him she used
the underarm pinch on a guy who was trying to date rape her and was so upset she broke through the skin and tore out muscle strands the guy needed stitches. Try pinching yourself in those places as hard as you can stand it; it really hurts.

5] After the initial hit, always go for the groin. I know from a particularly unfortunate experience that if you
slap a guy's parts itis extremely painful. You might think that you'll anger the guy and
make him want to hurt you more, but the thing these rapists told our instructor is that they want a woman who will not cause him a lot of trouble. Start causing trouble, and he's out of there.

6] When the guy puts his hands up to you, grab his first two fingers and bend them back as far as possible
with as much pressure pushing down on them as possible. The instructor did it to me without using much pressure, and I ended up on my knees and both knuckles cracked audibly.

7] Of course the things we always hear still apply. Always be aware of your surroundings, take someone
with you if you can and if you see any odd behavior, don't dismiss it, go with your instincts. You may feel little silly at the time, but you'd feel much worse if the guy really was trouble.

FINALLY, PLEASE REMEMBER THESE AS WELL ....

I know you are smart enough to know these pointers but there will be some, where you will go "hmm I must remember that" After reading, forward it to someone you care about, never hurts to be careful in this crazy world we live in.

1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do:
The elbow is the strongest point on your body. If you are close enough to use it, do it.

2. Learned this from a tourist guide to New Orleans :
if a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM. Toss it away from you.... chances are that he is more interested in your wallet and/or purse than you and he will go for the wallet/purse. RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER DIRECTION!

3. If you are ever get thrown into the trunk of a car:
Kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy.
The driver won't see you but everybody else will. This has saved lives.

4. Stay Alert & Move into your car or vehicle immediately.
Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping,eating, working, etc., and just sit (doing their checkbook, or making a list, etc. DON'T DO THIS! The predator will be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger side,put a gun to your head, and tell you where to go. AS SOON AS YOU CLOSE the DOORS , LEAVE.

5. A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot, or parking garage:

a. Be aware: look around your car as someone may be hiding at the passenger side , peek into your car, inside the passenger side floor, and in the back seat. (DO THIS TOO BEFORE RIDING A TAXI CAB) .

b. If you! u are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door. Most serial killers attack their victims by pulling them into their vans while the women are attempting to get into their cars.

c. Look at the car parked on the driver's side of your vehicle, and the passenger side. If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back into the mall, or work, and get a guard/policeman to walk you back out. IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better paranoid than dead.)

6. ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs.
Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot

7. If the assailant is armed with weapon
If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control, ALWAYS RUN! The predator will only hit you
(a running target) 4 in 100 times; And even then, it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ.
RUN!

8. As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic: STOP IT!
It may get you raped, or killed. Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a
good-looking, well educated man, who ALWAYS played on the sympathies of unsuspecting women. He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often asked "for help" into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when he abducted his next victim.

We ALWAYS HAVE A CHOICE!
We have two choices every time we wake up; continue to dream while still asleep or continue to dream wide awake and make it happen.
The choice is ours. . .

(my hunch. . .)

We don't need to be sorry when we decide to act upon the things we want. Don't feel guilty if we hurt other's feelings in the process because when all things have been said and done, it is still OUR LIFE that is at stake and not theirs. Say sorry, mean it, explain why you did it and that's it. End of story. . .

It may be my impulsiveness and lack of patience but I really had the feeling of pursuing another work option so I left without doing the mock lesson. I am really sorry if ever I have wasted your time and effort but I rather follow my hunch than thinking what could have happened. . . I knew what I really wanted in the first place but I also considered other options if ever my initial plan will not turn out good. What frustrates me is that I still haven't got the chance to pursue MY OWN CHOICE until now.

I must do this now to avoid the feeling of regret. I just need support. . .

(today I learned. . .)

皆さんこんにちは! お元気ですか。

Living a life with positive attitude takes A LOT of effort and discipline. . .We should always find out the good side of everyone that affects us and everything that's happening to our lives so as not to waste precious moments to pessimism.

Every single day I am doing whatever it takes to live a life with optimism and today, I am starting with my self. . .

Today I will Count as long as I can when I feel like bursting out with anger.

Anger is a negative emotion and should be avoided since it would do us no good. . .
