@kheal03 waaaa! grabe! sa may Valero St. pa man din ako ngayon hanggang Friday dahil sa training. :( maglalakad na lang ako papuntang MRT kesa maholdap. :(
akala ko medyo safe pa yung biyaheng Buendia-Washington, dahil puro empleyado ang makakasakay mo, pati pala kawatan sumasabay na..
kahit rush hour na rin sa Buendia, parang wala rin akong nakikitang pulis man lang dyan
next time na sasakay ako ng jeep dun, dun ako malapit sa labasan, para pag may biglang sumabit, papara ako agad para bumaba..
kung sino may twitter dito (wala e, hindi ako marunong mag-tweet, haha), siguro tweet niyo na lang sa Makati Traffic na papwestuhan sa Buendia, kahit hindi pa rush hour
Gadgets at ibang alahas lang ang kinuha? Di pinag-interesan ang pera?
We need death penalty back IMMEDIATELY, another rape victim.

Gadgets at ibang alahas lang ang kinuha? Di pinag-interesan ang pera?
Walang kinuha na kahit anu na walet, basta mga iphone at mamaling smartphone ang kinuha. take note mga pasahero na naglabas nung phone yung kinuhaan lang nila pero smartphone lahat yun nakulimbat.
ako kasi may smartphone din ako pero thank god na hindi ako naglabas ng phone nung araw na yun or kahit na magtext ako hindi ko ginawa..
ito lang napansin ko sa mga holdaper.
1. tingnan nyo yung pasahero na nasa likod ng driver at yung nasa estribo, kung napansin nyo na may kahina hinala sa kanila wag magatubili na bumaba. kanina sumakay ulit ako ng buendi to washington na jeep pero ngaun lahat ng pasahero tinitingnan ko na. dati sa bus ko lang ginawa ito pero ng mangyari sa akin ito, prang praning na ako tuwing sasakay ako ng PUV.
buti pala ang mga nakakasabay ako dyan, majority mga babae tsaka bakla, kaya medyo kampante ako
pero delikado rin kung may holdaper nga kaming kasabay, walang papalag sa kanila niyan
paps, baril ba yung na-brandish nilang pangholdap? nakakatakot.
May share din ako na mejo nakakatawa na experience ko kanina lang:
Papunta ako NCMH sa Mandaluyong kaninang mga 1130AM. May kelangan ko mag-ayos ng papeles, isipin niyo na lang na ang mindset ko medyo bothered na kasi ospital pupuntahan ko. Sumakay akong tricycle sa may terminal sa kanto baba lang nung Shaw Boulevard Station. Hindi pa nakakalayo may sumakay sa likod nung driver na lalaki na nakagreen na polo-barong, tipikal na pormahan ng mga SG sa mga building.
Nung una wala lang naman, iniisip ko lang yung problema ko at kung maabutan ko ba yung doktor na may appointment ako ng before 12nn. Dahil mejo malakas mag-usap yung driver at yung nakasabit na lalaki, at maingay sa labas, may mga konting berso lang ng kanilang usapan naririnig ko. Nasa passenger cab ako nung tricycle kaya diko alam kung sinu talaga nagsasalita sa kanilang dalawa. Pero ito narinig ko:
boses 1: "Nakikita mo to pare? Alam mo naman siguro kung anung kaya netong gawin at kung hanggang san ito aabot diba??
boses 2: "..Kakabyahe ko lang pare, wag naman ngayon, bibisita pa sa mental tong pasahero ko"
boses 1: "Akala ko ba naiintindihan mo ko?"
habang naririnig ko yan, tinitignan ko na posisyon nung lalaking naka-green, naka-akbay siya dun sa driver tapos yung driver naman, parang ang kilos ay reluctant niya binubuksan yung beltbag niya. So inakala kong hinoholdap na yung driver na, iniisip ko baka binabargain niya na wag kami holdapin. Bale hinintay ko na lang magmenor yung tricycle kasi may upcoming traffic naman dun sa kalsada. Pagka menor niya, tumalon na ako galing dun sa side car niya. mabagal na yung takbo niya kaya napahakbang lang ako ng 3 beses dahil sa momentum.
Nung ginawa ko yun, huminto yung tryk at sumigaw yung manong driver sakin
driver: "oi pare bakit ka tumalon bigla?!"
ako: *tinuturo yung nasa likod niya* "Sinu yan pare, yung sumabit?"
driver: *narealize niya yung akusasyon sa kilos ko* "haha! tang*na hindi yan holdaper pare, ayos ng ayos ng porma, pagkakamalan mo"
nung nakita kong wala ngang dala nakatutok dun sa driver at nagtatawanan silang dalawa, sumakay na ako ulet.
Yun pala, yung pinag-uusapan nila, yung Phallic Keychain na pasalubong nung isa nilang kakilala dun sa driver. singhaba rin kasi ng bolpen. Wow!Mali moment ako dun.
Pero kahit na ginawa akong paranoid kakabasa dito sa thread na ito, naging listo naman ako sa surroundings. Siguro hanggang ngayon pinagtatawanan ako nung driver at nung kumpare niya pero ok lang sakin kasi at least hindi ako tatanga-tanga lang.

paps, baril ba yung na-brandish nilang pangholdap? nakakatakot.
Wala ako nakita na kahit anu patalim or baril pero ang napansin ko dun sa lalaki na nasa estribo may nakasukpit na bagay sa kanya pero hindi nilibas.
Naisip ko na kaya nila ginawa un ay para hindi din magpanic yung mga pasahero pag may nakita na patalim at lalo na yung baril.
at dahil sa lagi ako sa thread na ito, inisip ko yung sinasabi nila na payo nila dito na wag na lumaban kasi lagi may dala mga yan. may tattoo pala yung holdaper sa braso pareho sila. at parang galing din ng kulungan na yung dalawa nasa itsura palang.
tanong ko lang...
kung sakaling maholdup ba yung sinasakyan mong jeep/fx e ayos ba na magkunwari na inaatake ka sa puso?
o bad idea yun?
iniisip ko kasi baka mataranta sila at magbabaan nalang...
^ handa silang pumatay ng tao sir kaya walang paki mga yan, mataranta man sila ay kung magkagulo bigla sa jeep/fx at maaring makatawag ng attention ng iba dahil sa heart attack drama.
Call Center Job Interview Modus Operandi of 'Grace' in Sykes Shaw Boulevard
<click here for link>
My wife went to Shaw Blvd to apply for a job at around 2:30pm at Sykes Recruitment Center. She was approached by one of the dizers there and asked if she was applying for a job, they went inside and my wife sat beside two other female applicants. Another dizer approached her and asked for her name and resume and told her to sign the logbook. She then noticed this woman, seated on the other row near the door, smiling at her. Thinking that it was just another applicant she smiled back and waited for her turn. She gets called and proceeds with the interview; my wife wanted a day-shift non-voice/back office job and unfortunately there weren’t any available. She then shook hands with the recruiter, turned around and decided to sit and rest for a few minutes before leaving.
The woman who kept on smiling at her approached her and introduced herself as “Grace” [Obviously not her real name] and asked: “Oh kumusta? tanggap ba?” [How did it go? Were you hired?] My wife replied: “Hindi eh, wala daw silang non-voice ngayon.” [No, they dodn’t have any non-voice account at the moment.]
My wife then decided to leave Sykes recruitment office and head home, Grace then followed her outside and asked: “San ka pupunta?” [Where are you going?"] My wife replied: “Kakain lang nagugutom ako eh” [I’ll get something to eat, I’m hungry.] She then suggests: “Tara kain tayo nagugutom din ako eh.” [Let’s eat together, I’m hungry as well.] She also added: “Tiga Isabela ka diba? Tiga Cabagan ako” [You’re from Isabela right, I’m from Cabagan.] [An information that she might have collected while inside the recruitment office.]
My wife thinking that this “Grace” was just being friendly since they are both Ilocana agreed to eat with her. She then told my wife that she had to go to the ladies’ washroom first. [Possibly dodging the obvious CCTV camera infront of Starbucks at the main entrance of Worldwide Corporate Center.] Then they went to the foodcourt, where the CR is located, and my wife suggested eating at McDonald’s instead since it’s just beside the exit. Grace then replied that she didn’t like the burgers at McDonald’s and wanted to eat at Star Mall food court.
They left Worldwide Corporate Center from the exit beside McDo and headed towards Star Mall. At around 3:15pm they were inside Star Mall, my wife bought Zagu and this “Grace” is now asking her a lot of questions [her age, where she’s from, where she’s living in the city]. She was fishing for more information that she could use to win my wife’s complete trust. She even took advantage of the fact that they are both Ilocana and was conversing with my wife in their local tongue. At 3:35pm Grace decides to eat at Jollibee and they are both seen entering the store. Inside, Grace picks a spot to sit and asks for my wife’s number claiming that she is an employee of Convergys for 5 years and that they can look for a job together. Trusting that this is the case, my wife gave her number. She then decides to order and even asked my wife if she wanted anything but she declined. She went to the counter to order her food and after a few minutes went back and left her bag on their table and hurried back to the counter to get what she ordered, my wife then noticed that she received a message from a recruiter from Sykes named Grace [there’s really a recruiter with this name] telling her to return at 4:30pm for a non-voice job interview and that she should be wearing casual clothes and no jewelries was allowed.
This “Grace” got back and my wife even showed the message to her. Grace then said that she also has a final interview which was at 5:00pm. My wife noticing that it’s unusual for a recruiter to require you to change clothes for an interview voiced out her suspicion [She even sent me a message which I replied “Give me the number and I’ll call that recruiter"] but this Grace insisted that sometimes they do if the client is strict. A 2nd text then came in telling her that she should be wearing a white blouse, a skirt, and a pair of stockings. This time Grace was more persuasive and encouraged her to just buy from the stores inside the mall and that she will accompany her. My wife was half-hearted into doing this but this Grace was pushy and really wanted her to go to the interview. Grace was finally able to lure my wife into buying the required dress code.
They went to a store called “Zhienelle’s” where she tried out a few blouses. The fitting room was small and cramped up, she had to put her bag outside the fitting room on a chair just inches away from her. She was mindful of her bag while trying on the clothes and did not close the curtain completely. The saleslady then handed her a new blouse to try on along with the skirt and stockings. The saleslady shut the curtain completely and this “Grace” took the opportunity to grab my wife’s bag and quickly leave the store. My wife noticed that her bag is missing and this “Grace” is nowhere to be seen. She now felt a sense of emergency and quickly asked the saleslady where she went, the saleslady said that she left and told her that she’d go and buy some shoes. At this point the suspect exited the mall and hurriedly went to the MRT according to witnesses.
We lost her wedding ring, engagement ring [It’s only a couple of months since we got married], earrings, watch, phone, cash. Her important documents are also in the bag [Birth Certificate, Passport, Diploma, Certifications, Curriculum Vitae]. We fear that she might fall victim to identity theft and they might use these on her/their next victim/s.
WHAT HAPPENED NEXT:
My wife alerted the local mall security but there was no sense of urgency from them, she was escorted to a nearby police station where she was asked for the details of the incident. She had it blottered and was assisted by a couple of police officers back to Sykes. They were also generous enough to lend my wife their phones so that she can contact me. Sykes verified that the suspect is disguising herself as one of the applicants and tries to befriend her victims [possibly providing fake resumes].
The text that the job seekers receive does not come from them and that they do not require a certain dress code for any interview. They also said that this is happening for a while now and that there are other victims as well. [In fact, they said there was another victim that same day – Daisy, also pointing out to the same name “Grace” using the same M.O.] The 2 police officers escorted my wife to the Mandaluyong City Police Department to file a Police Report.
At around 6:00pm I arrived at the Mandaluyong City Police Station, the same time that they arrived. We filed for a police report and had a request for CCTV footage made. Right now we are still collecting information and evidence regarding this incident. We did our own digging and backtracking hoping to find some answers and apprehend the culprit. We do not know if this “Grace” is working just by herself or if she’s with a group. Unfortunately, though we already filed a police complaint and have with us a request for CCTV footage, the security division of Star Mall would not cooperate.
CCTV footage has also been requested from Worldwide Corporate Center’s security division and they promised us that they will contact us again once this is approved by their legal department. Sykes did not have any CCTV. Luckily, with the help of Jollibee Starmall Branch Manager Ma’am Janette and Mr. DK who eagerly helped us and provided us with the much needed stills and CCTV footage of the suspect, we extend our sincerest gratitude. We would also like to extend our gratitude to Sykes Director Ma’am Mary Yu for working with us along with Mr. Tristan and Ms. Grace from Sykes Recruitment Center.
It is imperative that we really work together in solving these crimes not just for our own safety but for the safety of our own family. You may not be the victim today, but think about all the hard-working people that strive to make a living through decent means. WE NEED TO PUT A STOP TO THIS.

Laking tulong talaga ng cctv but i hope maging malawakan ang implementation nyan. Dito sa singapore, establishments are required to have cctvs, either small or big business. Everywhere, we are flooded with cctvs sa mall, mrt, bus lahat ng entrance ng toilets kaya ang mga nagtagangkang gumawa ng kalokohan ang bilis mahuli. I hope marealize ito jan para mas maprotektahan ang mga tao.
dito naman sa pinas, patay na yung biktima bago ireview yung CCTV.
Minsan need pa ng special request bago i-review. Kawawa talaga mga biktima.
ligaya - notorious talaga ang lugar na to. actually mula dito hanggang sa manggahan floodway. ilang beses na din ako nakakita ng krimen na naganap dito, at least 3x - puro shooting incidents.
talaga?! kakalipat lang namin malapit dyan. dyan na rin ako lagi sumasakay at bumababa ng dyip (sa may Jollibee). anong mga krimen na ang nangyari sa lugar na to?
^snatcher madami diyan. kapag nandiyan ka tago mo cellphone mo.
Un lang. Dito tamang hinala kadalasan. Siguro part na rin yun ng pagiging vigilant at alert nila. One time tumayo lang ako sa tabi ng atm kasi inaantay ko ang wife ko. After 1 minute, may guard na pumosisyon malapit sa akin. Akala siguro nya tinitignan ko yung mga nagwiwithdraw ng pera.
Ang ok lang dito is mataas ang assurance (although not always 100 percent) na mahuhuli ang suspect. Pag may krimen sa isang lugar, expect na madalas ang police visibility at minsan nilalagyan pa nila ng additional cctv.
With that, aware ang suspects na madaming "mata" ang nakasubabay sa kanila. Just imagine kung mapupunta sa ganitong bagay ang mga kinukuha ng mga senador, mas magiging safe place sana ang pinas.
parang yung storya lang nung galing airport a few pages ago...
just go to show that don't trust a stranger that is very *friendly*.
ewan ko ba sa atin bakit kailangan pa ng napakatagal na"approval" para lang ma-view yan. to think na public naman yung kinukunan nila. pag ako nanonood ng mga korean movies or series, pag may krimen, dun mismo sa scene pag may cctv eh nirereview na agad (not sure kung sa tunay na buhay sa Korea eh ganun)
dagdag ko lang dun sa strangers na bigla na lang nakikipag usap.
Pag kinutuban kayo at nahalata kayong kabado nung mga kawatan, sasabihin nila usually yung linya "Wag kayo matakot, di naman ako/kami masamang tao", lalo na kayong maghinala.
Sa ngayon talaga, maging masungit ka na lang kesa magtiwala ka agad agad sa ibang tao.
that's what i always tell my wife and son. wag makikipag usap sa ibang tao at kapag may tumawag sa phone wag sila magbibigay ng personal information kasi baka magamit lang sa masamang paraan..
