Safety tips for Girls (and Guys who carry Handbags)

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

This post is for people who carry handbags.
This post is not about telling people NOT to carry handbags.

Good intentions, is this aimed at adults?
Never trust a man who when left alone with a tea cosey, doesn't try it on.

Any safety tips for men with man-buns? I witnessed robbers grabbing a man's man-bun with large vice-grip pliers, disabling him that way and robbing him. I shit you not! Painful to watch, but creative and clever.

Nope, they are on their own.

Especially handbag-wearing men with man-buns

Men who carry handbags deserve to be robbed.

Some of you might remember the time a French woman was dragged off the back of her motodop and fell under a following van in an attempt to steal her bag or backpack. Both the motodop and van kept going, and she was killed. This was about 13 years ago, and I have never worn a backpack while riding on a motodop since. I put the backpack between me and the driver. If you want it, take it, but I'm not going with it. I've know other woman receiving injuries from being dragged off their motobikes for their handbags. Women should put their hand bags under the motorbike seat. There are too many methheads looking for a few dollars and have no regard for you.

^^ Good reminder that bag-snatching is an agression against a person, and that occasionally people have been badly injured or even killed. The snatchings off motorbikes or from tuktuks are the most dangerous, so take care out there.
