Last Sunday, we went to Jaya Jusco in Equine Park for dinner and to do some shopping (for me, mainly). I got myself a pair of Levi's jeans and another pair of sandals. Hubby bought a 20-inch trolley bag for his short business trips.
There was a shoe shop next to the luggage shop. After buying the luggage, I went next door with XY while hubby went to Jusco with CE to get the red packets. Kakak sat at the bench outside the luggage shop taking care of the things we've just bought. While I was trying on shoes, XY was walking around the shop, busy examining some shoes. Then suddenly she was nowhere in sight. I thought she was sitting on the floor where I can't see her. So I looked around the shop but didn't see her. I started to panic a little, especially with so many recent news of little girls gone missing. So I quickly ran out of the shop and saw her in the luggage shop, looking for me. I was so mad at her. I've specifically told her to stay in the shop to wait for me but she just couldn't sit still and went roaming about herself. I can't imagine what'll happen if she's really gone missing. The thought of it sends shudders down my spine. Thank god nothing happened.
I got a good lecture from hubby and obviously, I deserved it. After that incident, I'll definitely be more careful and keep her in sight at all times. It's better to hold her hand all the time. Not just for young girls, we should protect our boys just the same. We should never be careless, especially in such a situation.
