Cioustomer Care : Tips
Learn Local Language
Learn at least a few words that are often used as greetings such as ‘selamat pagi’ , ‘apa kabar’ , dan ‘terima kasih’
Learn The Local Cultures
Knowing a little about local culture isn’t actually hard. You can learn about the people, try the local food, looking at the traditional crafts, see the ceremonial procession, and other customs you can find out in the street.
Uh-oh, you’re in the middle of a trip but your GPS is running out of battery? Take pocket-printed-map with you all the time! Cious magazine has a special little map inside to accompany you in your journey.
Backup Your Batteries!
Always remember to bring backup batteries for your camera, or your phone charger everywhere you go. Running out of batteries in the middle of the journey can be a very unpleasant experience!
Bring Enough Cash
Bring Your Own Medicine
Hotel Service Advantage
Bottle of Water, Sunglasess & Sunblock
Credit card is the best option for payment when you’re traveling. But in emergencies, bring small amounts of cash to buy food or snacks because not every store provides credit card payment.
Hotels usually have services for the guests such as transportation services, rental info, and travel information. Don’t be afraid to ask for their help if you need some information for your traveling experience.
Bring Printed Map
If you have certain health condition, bring your own medicine when traveling, especially for you who have a special prescription from a doctor.
Do not forget to bring those items, especially when you do adventures
Cioustomer Care : Trick Walk Away Pretend to walk away when you bargain for prices at traditional markets can be very helpful for getting a discount! The seller will probably call you back and give you the price you want!
I’m Lost! When you lost on a trip, it’s better to ask the local where you are and where to go. Balinese people are very kind to tourists and of course-if they can understand what you’re saying, they will help you. Remember to ask the young-adult because they have bigger chances to speak English!
Media Help Don’t forget to always bring your favorite printed media with you such as information brochures, magazine, pocket magazine-Cious of course!-to help you find any favorite destinations for your traveling pleasure.
Take Shortcuts If you’re stuck in traffic for hours, the best way you can do is to take shortcuts through smaller roads, or a lane-if you’re riding a motorcycle. Don’t forget to ask around!

arriage is the most sacred moment in our lives. Especially for Indonesian, with their hundred of ethnic groups and their different cultures for marriage ceremony. The traditional wedding ceremonies and customs will give you a unique opportunity to gain insight the culture. Bali is one of Indonesia provinces which it’s people still uphold their customs. They are three kinds of Balinese marriage styles; elopement (ngerorod), more respected (memadik), and when a man moves permanently to his wife’s home (nyentana). Elopement or ngerorod is the most common style for Balinese people, where the couple arrange to meet somewhere out of sight of the girl’s parents and
spend the night together with a rent room of at friend’s house. Meanwhile the girl resumes her life and her routine and not allowed to return to her parents. Memadik is a marriage style where the boy’s family members come to the house of the girl’s parents and respectfully ask for their daughter to marry the boy. This style usually cost the most for the processing and the offerings involved. Nyentana is marriage style where the boy leaves his family for the girl’s house and finally belongs to the girl’s family. This happens because the girl’s parents have no sons to look after their property - the man is effective assumed into the family to continue the male lineage. Long years ago, when Bali has kingdoms, the marriage system was really strict. Only couples from the same level were allowed to marry to maintain the purity of the level/caste system. For any couple who broke these marriage rules was banished from their village and sent out into the jungle for the rest of their days. These days, however, while still very much respected, the level/caste system is no longer hold such rules over the Balinese.

Bali has one of this kind of food too, but they usually use tuna for the satay. Mixed with some traditional local spices, sate lilit is one of the favorites in many restaurants you can find.
Do’s & Dont’s
The Only Thing Remains
ndonesia is famous for the diversion of cultures all over the country. Traditional customs is what will give a region an identity and dignity. From all the provinces, Bali has the most respectable customs than any other province in Indonesia. The dance, the people, the religion, the food, the sacred places, the government rules, and especially for this case, the architecture. Balinese architecture is the most sophisticated thing
on the face of the earth. This style of architecture isn’t just about shapes or materials, but it’s also about the story behind every inch of the brick, the shape or the craving in the wood or the stones. The architecture style isn’t just beautiful, it talks. But the modernity has brought people to something easier. To make, to get, to build, and to live in. They believe in mass product than self-made. There’s no money and the time, they said. Besides, the glass looks simpler and elegant than the traditional window. The black flat door is more way cool than the heavy craving wood door. No more statues, no more ornaments. Everything is so sharp and white and cold, just like what the modernity should be. But a lot of future leaders of tomorrow know this. They aware of what will happen if the traditional value somehow erased from the people. They will not have their identity and dignity. So they keep some of them safe and sound, enough for some other people who can appreciate to see and to preserve. And as the as the nation who can appreciate their own culture, it is our job to keep the only thing remains from our identity.

irport porters have been working to help tourists to carry their luggage for years. A porter will approach you and ask to help you carry your things. He will be very friendly, allowing you to think that he is doing it out in kindness of his heart. But, uh oh! This is a SCAM. Ciouserz must beware of porters who dressed as officials that ask you to one side and pick up your bag. It’s another
common scam which you will see as soon as you enter the airport when retrieving your luggage at the carousel. It’s very hard in Bali to tell the difference between who is really an official porter officer or not. However, as soon as you’re ready to go, he will demand money from you. Maybe it’s only a few dollars, but a few dollars is thousands in rupiahs. Beware of this tricky scammers guys!
How to NOT get scam?
Always take care of your luggage by yourself and never let the porters to carry them for you. If you’re traveling with your friends, divide the work so one of you can wait for the bags in carousel and the other one can go to find a trolley. If you’re traveling alone, make sure that you can handle the bag yourself, if you’re not able to carry it, then there’s no point to even bring it.
How if you get scam? If you are too late to realize that the porter already got you on his hook, all you can do is to let the porter carry the luggage. When they ask for payment, you can tell them that you haven’t changed any of your money to rupiahs or you can tell him-by agreement- that you only have half the amount of money he’s asking for.
How They Do it ?
ost travelers usually bring multiple currencies. They always bring their own currencies or US dollars, beside bringing the local currencies. So there is a time you need to change your money into local money.This is the time scammers are waiting for .Beware of the money changer shops in the street . Many tourist get scammed when they exchanged foreigner currencies to Indonesian currency at money changer street in Kuta,legian, area with the highest rate compared with other shops.
It’s really simple. you’ll realize how confusion is the best key, and if they are ever caught, they will claim the same confusion as yourself. 1. When you came to the money changer, scammers will ask you how much you want to exchange. 2. They will prepare, usually using Rp.50.000,-, so you will get more money to make it hard to count. 3. They will count in front of you, to make sure you believe the money is there. 4. after this part you must be checking again the money, if you found some missing you will complain and ask him to give you more. 5. At this time they will take the money from you add more money and count again, all money. to make you believe. 6. After they count all money, what you not realize is just before they give you the money, they have box under the table. they will drop the money as much as they can without making you suspicious. 7. So the point is even the scammer don’t know how much money they get from you (it’s FACT) 8. if you still complain that there is missing money, they will do the same. until you get angry and go away taking your money (so rare ) because 90% this trick is successfully. beside that trick, there always another people to make a distraction, ask you anything, so kind and full of smile.
How to Not get SCAM ? Always Count your money TWICE. and after you count the money, don’t let them took the money from you, just asking for additional money that missing. If they don’t want, find another money changer. DON’T change your money at street money changer. Better go find the official one.
How if you Get SCAM ? If you get scam a lot, better you go to the police station. But if the value is small, i doubt, it will help. we hope this article can help you, and don’t forget when you holiday in bali. you can get Our FREE magz at groceries, supermarket,public area and etc. We will guide you, to make sure your holiday is one of the part on your life. happy traveling & save trip.

January 12 th , The Whacko Beach Club Bali. here was something unusual that night. People stood in line. We looked at those smiling faces. Plenty of guards keep their eyes everywhere. Some people dance, but there was no music. They screamed, but again, there’s no music. What happened? Were they crazy? Yes, it’s a silent party! Everybody got their earphones on. You can only hear the music by wearing it so it took the craziness out of the water, just like when we’re listening the music with maximum volume by wearing earphones. The NOAH Silent Concert started with an old single, Cobalah Mengerti, as NOAH’s front man, Ariel drew us to his music. The stage act, the voice, it’s still very beautiful, just like the old Ariel we used to know. This wonderful concert was held in the edge of the Whacko Beach Club, so when the wave swept into us, the audience simultaneously seceded apart into a few groups, and got together again and continued to sing. Maybe that’s the best part of this concert, the heat mixed so well, what a wonderful performance by NOAH and the perfect setting of the concert makes the night unforgettable.

Balinese Caste System A
ccording to the Dictionary of American English, caste is a group resulting from the division of society based on class differences of wealth, rank, rights, profession, or job. More description found in Encyclopedia Americana Volume Five page 775, “Casta” in Portuguese, which means the class, racial descent, class. There is a caste system in Hinduism. This caste system can show someone where he/she comes from. We can find this caste system by looking into someone’s name. There are six sequences that show the name of caste in Balinese. The first one is Brahmana, the highest caste in Balinese people. These castes come from a preacher ancestry, and start its name
with Ida Bagus for men and Ida Ayu for women. The second caste is Ksatria, for those who come from the royal family and the ancestry of kings, or a crown prince. The names usually begin with Cokorda both for men and women. Anak Agung is for those Balinese who also come from the royal family, but not a crown prince. The fourth caste, also Ksatria, comes from the warrior ancestry. Their names begin with Dewa for men and Desak for women. The fifth caste or Vaisya caste, belong to those respected people, such as entrepreneurs, field owners, et cetera, but not a member of the royal family. This caste is usually begun with the name I Gusti for men and I Gusti Ayu for women. The last caste is Sudra. This caste comes from the labor or farmer ancestry. There’s no degree on the name, a few example of names will be Ni Luh, Ketut, Made, or Nyoman. In this modern world, the caste system doesn’t give a lot of affects for the youth social life. But for marriages and family lives, some rules are set to keep the tradition exists because after all, identities are important. It doesn’t matter where you’re from, as long as you can keep your dignity in front of people and careful with the attitude, people will always give you the respect you deserve.

Some people come here for holiday and the rest are coming for business. Cious will give you some information to help you work comfortably on your business trip.
Businessious tips and tricks
Accommodation for business travel usually already taken care of by your company. But, if you have to find the hotel yourself, you can stay in mid-class hotels around Kuta, especially the ones that located near the airport. If money isn’t a problem, Nusa Dua have plenty of luxury hotels which will be a perfect place for business occasions.
Tips Pack Things Right
Always remember to carry only the important stuff in your travel bag. Do not over pack because it will cause you trouble when you’re in a rush.
Transportation You can ask your hotel front desk to rent a car. They will give you some rental companies suggestions and you can choose one of them. Make sure to check the driver and the company before you make a deal.
Food – meeting while you’re having lunch? Why not? Ask your driver where is the best to have a peaceful and quiet restaurants for lunch and make sure that the restaurants have facilities for your business errands, like internet access and slide projectors-if you need one.

Tricks Print your boarding pass early before the flight. You’ll avoid lines at the airport and if there are any computer problems at the airport, you’ll already be set. Ask for the receptionist at the hotel for wake up call so you wont be late in the morning. Make an all-electronics case that has a charger for every electronic thing you travel with, including cell phone, tablet or video camera, and other can’t-live-without gadgets.
Stick To Priorities
Always keep your schedule on track and do not be tempted by other activities outside the schedule. You can try something new, but not at the expense of your priorities, if it is a waste of time.
It’s not funny when you’re sick and a very important meeting awaits you. Generally someone else or your company will be paying for your food, so you can have a controlled amount of good quality, healthy food. Good food is a great remedy for threatening stress.

Always make sure to check the rental company and the driver’s license first before you start dealing.
