Take no chances, do take extra precautions and really lock up if you are going away for holidays during this festive season. Even though, there is a better security in place now, it is never enough to deter a break in which had happened so frequently at Pearl Garden.
There has been alot of finger pointing to who is responsible to keep the security team in ship shape condition and many security companies had been replaced for the past years (I have stayed here for the past 10 years and I have my share of experiences with our security guards). The previous ones (a few years back) were caught having beer during working hours and I believed sacking them was the right decision. No mercy.
Yup, I was the one who told off the previous security supervisor (Jeffrey) that her men were having fun drinking beers and getting drunk when they were supposed to be working. Sure, some will say, what is a few beers? What harm can it do? Small matter what, a few beers only...so petty things..
You see, no one appreciates such things, until something really bad happened, for example to the extreme, these security guards got so drunk and they slept throughout the night and burglars ransacked your home, beat you up and "abused" your family. But when that happens, it is too late, there is no way to turn back the clock. But what the heck, petty things, right? As long as it does not happen to you or your family, it is ok...
Nevertheless, thanks to all of the residents' feed backs and support all this while, the current security team is on their toes, surprisingly some improvement can be seen (sometimes I pity them, when they see me, they see Satan or they try to look busy or something).
Anyway, that's beside the point, the most important thing is, they know that they are here to provide a sense of security to all who lived at Pearl Garden, whether they are owners or tenants, there are expectations. They know that we expect a certain commitment and quality from them. By the way, owners and tenants are paying their salary. Or do they protect the owners only and leave the tenants to fend for themselves?
You see, "residents" (owners and tenants = residents) should dictate the quality of service and I am not only talking about security, it can be cleanliness of the surrounding area or it could the manner the management team is handling certain issues. It could just be anything.
