Play Pokemon Go responsibly!!

Pokemon Go....the hot topic now, and the game non players loves to want to hate... and yes, they do have a reason... as it is not the game but the people that are crazy...

I admit I am one of them but I know where to draw the line and I am not extreme ok....
As to date I have caught over 160 pokemons without having going out at night, chasing pokemons around masjids, suraus, temple or even shrines. Whose stupid idea was it to make places of worship Pokestops or worse Gyms?!! Pokemon hunters, please oh please-lah, I beseech you, respect these places of worship!!!
I play my Pokemon Go only when I am at shopping malls or parks and I avoid going to weird places and so on....going in the middle of the highway or any such thing...and why the hell would anyone want to do that I do not even know...

Be careful playing it outside at parks and at the side of the road... remember Malaysia is a haven for snatch thefts and you are practically BEGGING and LURING those snatch thieves to take your smartphone when you are all engrossed with that game...

Friends have been telling me how people walk straight into walls, other people and even fall down drains, stairs etc just because they are so engrossed catching that bloody Digital monsters....It it really worth all these risks???
Play smart and just catch those monsters with the green scenery like I do... it is safer and so much easier to catch rather then to try detecting them in real mode....I hate trying to catch those freaking creatures in real mode and prefer the green scenery where they are easier to catch... and safer for all of us too....
...unless you want to take a picture of them , but make sure you are in a safe place before you do that.....your life and safety is more important then an imaginative digital pocket monster..
It is just a freaking game.. a fun one yes, and I admit I enjoy catching these pokemons especially new ones and rare ones... but I will not go all crazy looking all over for it...
Pokemon Go can be a good game that encourages family bonding when father and sons go hunt Pokemons together and also encourages us to exercise more-example do you know when you want to hatch those freaking eggs in the incubator you have to walk anywhere from 2 km to 10 km???!!!
So there peeps, go play your Pokemon Go if you want, but play within reason and don't be too crazy or you will lose your phone, hurt yourself or even lose your life...and for God's sake, don't Pokemon and drive!!! There is nothing to catch on the roads also... at least in my opinion when I tried it when my hubby was driving...

Go and sit down in KLCC or Mid Valley and so on for a few hours if you have to and catch all you want.... that is safer and wiser... LOL.. Yeah, there is soooooo many Pokestops and Gyms there, and you are safe...

  10. I LOVEEEEEE POKEMON! But for PokemonGO, I will still not go too wild & extreme.. People should've play it rationally, it's okay to hurt yourself to play while driving, but don't put other people in danger also ma..

  11. The game actually allows you to still be in the gym/pokestop without entering the masjid or temple.
    I don't think it is wrong hanging out at a place of worship. It helps understanding, and opens the mind for people to go there.
    How many of us will avoid the temple or masjid or church cos of something we harbour due lack of understanding. But the fact that people can walk around outside a temple regardless of religion and admire its beauty/architecture, a place they would probably usually avoid cos of religion, isn't that a great thing? Mixing and talking with other people about the game as people gather there.
    Safety is a problem in Malaysia, I suppose, but I think I use that excuse not to go out walking. Now I would ask my husband to teman me go walking cos of the game. It is good.
    Just don't go to deserted & dark places, waving around an expensive phone. Just walking around a row of shops seems ok to me.
