There is a new online modus operandi going around wherein an email or text message that claims to be from Alfamart is giving away gift cards worth up to PhP 7,000. To get a chance to “win” the said prize, all the victim must do is answer a survey and register.Read more
Travel bags are a dime a dozen… There are so many of them, trying to outdo the competion by creating sleeker looking designs with bigger capacities.
But that doesn’t mean that when you see one, you’ve seen them all.
While some of these bags and cases may come in really cool designs and carry a ton of your stuff around easily, their primary function is to keep your things safe at all costs… and that’s where quite a number of these products fail miserably.
Whether you’re traveling by air or sea or simply walking around at the mall or on the sidewalk, safety should always come first – not just your own safety, but also the safefty AND security of your valuables.
That’s where TRAVELON products stand out and easily blows the competition out of the water.
Why spend so much on a cellphone or an expensive wallet yet keep it tucked inside a bag that can easily be opened up, slashed or compromised?
I recently attended the Travelon LOCKED AND LOADED launch at the classy and very posh Solaire Resort & Casino.
During this event, I was introduced to the entire line of amazing Travelon products that are guaranteed to keep your things protected from theft of all sorts… yes, even from digital/virtual theft.
Wanna know how incompetent most entrance security guards are at the mall? I say most because there are a rare few that actually still do their job… but “few” just won’t cut it, especially when people’s safety and lives are at stake.
Note that I shot the (very short) video below on my wife’s re-entry at one of the entrances of Greenbelt 4. During the first entry seconds earlier, my wife actually took longer in front of the guard prodding and gesturing for him to check her bag. That’s when I noticed that this damn guard wasn’t just lax. He actually wasn’t doing his effin job!
So after our first pass-thru, I told my wife to turn around, exit the establishment and re-enter… but this time, with me behind her – documenting the entire thing on video. Watch.
As you can see, the guard glanced but wasn’t even bothered that the pass-thru detector alarmed when my wife walked through it.
Are these guards even trained properly? Or are they just whiling the hours on the job doing nothing, waiting for their next paycheck? Though they may be polite to customers and smile every now and then when talking to passersby, none of that feels comforting at all when you know that possible terrorists and robbers can walk freely in and out of these highly congested malls carrying explosives and firearms.
Keep in mind that this kind of thing happens not just at Greenbelt. It happens practically in every mall all around Metro Manila (and most likely across the Philippines as well).
Disappointing and very alarming.
