A couple of weeks ago we went to have a short weekend vacation in Sihanoukville, Cambodia. Me, hubby and Chinks went and since it was just for the weekend, we just locked the house and brought over our dog, Mai-Mai to my mother-in-law's house. The weekend was a great one, we got some time to relax, unwind and be away from the hustle and bustle of Phnom Penh.

When we got back, we were quite alarmed coz all our neighbors dogs were dead, our dog was just lucky coz she was not at home at that time. The reason all these dogs died: poisoning. The police said there has been cases of robberies near our area where dogs are poisoned beforehand so these robbers can move about more freely.

It's alarming for us especially since most houses here don't have any home security system except for the regular bolts and locks.

We're now thinking of having a security system with a good technology like the ADT so at least we could have some peace of mind and feel safer. I feel all the more worried coz during daytime, my daughter goes off to school, hubby is busy at work so I'm usually left at working at home. Our neighbor's house too is empty during daytime and geez!

I'm really scared to be all alone in case robbers come. And the neighborhood is pretty quiet to top all that. Who would hear if I scream? If I could scream...Am I getting paranoid? Maybe. Maybe not. The thing is home security is really something we should not take for granted..
