LOTTERY SCAM here are a lot of scams that can be found on the streets today. If you are a traveler who likes to visit different countries, then you can definitely recognize some of them. Being careful is not enough, you also have to be alert at all times and always ready for an emergency. One of the most widely scam performed is fraud in money changer places. There are hundreds of
articles written carefully for the reader to recognize the signs. But do you know that there is another trick that can get you into trouble? This trick is so neatly done with so little known by others. Oh no! Donâ€™t worry, Ciouserz! We are going to dismantle one of the scams that are often carried out in Asian countries, especially in Bali.
What is the scam? If you walk around crowded areas such as Kuta or Seminyak, you can see some people approach you with pages of questionnaires in their hand. They will friendly ask you to take it and fill it up to win the prizes. Yup, lottery scam turned out to be the most effective fraud and commonly occur on the island! How do they do it? First, they will approach you with friendly faces and give you the questionnaires. They will explain how easy it is to win big prizes just by answering some questions and put your identities on the paper. Once you arrived at the hotel, you will receive a phone call from certain number who will tell you that you win the lottery. Keep the euphoria guys, this is the tricky part! The second part of the scam would be when they pick you up at the hotel. They will ask you so and tell you that you have to get the prizes in a certain place. You will get picked up by a fancy motorcycle or even a car, just as a cover for you to believe it. Once you arrived at the place, you will have yourself being robbed and abandoned after they take everything you own. How to get out of it? Be aware of the signs! It’s better to say ‘no thanks’ in the first trick to avoid any trouble. You can just ignore them and walk ahead. If they force you to take the questionnaires, take the paper politely, fill it up and put invalid number so they can’t reach you. Give them wrong names, wrong addresses and always remember to keep your identity to yourself. Also always keep emergency number on your speed dial in case something happen. www.ciousmagz.com 51

aving advance knowledge regarding where to find the right medical care is crucial when travelling. Don’t put yourself in a panic position in an emergency situation by going without appropriate care and the right doctor. Dr. Meike Magnasofa, M.Med (WH), Medical Director at BIMC Hospital Kuta, explains, “The most important ingredient of care is being comfortable with your doctor and vice versa.” Dr. Magnasofa stresses to the doctors under her direction that fulfilling their roll is not merely being adept in medical practices but having thorough compassion for people, being caring and genuinely concerned for their wellbeing. “We first responders are a patient’s initial line of care, and very frequently the patient’s friend and confidant on all matters related to their health.”
Dr. Magnasofa joined BIMC in March 2008 after graduating as a qualified physician in 1997 from the Medical Faculty at Padjadjaran University in Bandung, Indonesia along with a M.Med in Women’s Health from The University of Melbourne, Australia in 2007. Her work in Indonesia as well as Australia has given her a range of medical care experience and the ability to adapt to a variety of patients and conditions from various backgrounds and cultures although she calls “care” a human consideration that transcends all barriers. BIMC Kuta and BIMC Nusa Dua Hospitals are strategically located with 24-hour accident and emergency centers lauded for their quick response time and “Australian” standard medical assistance.

Between a mother who cared about her virgin daughter and her bad reputation on the village for all damaged farmersâ€™ crops and caused disease, Calonarang could never find someone who would want to be a husband for her girl. Everybody were too afraid of the mother, Calonarang was angry and she intended to take revenge by kidnapping a young girl. She brought the girl to a temple to be sacrificed to the goddess Durga. The next day, a great flood engulfed the village and many people died. Disease also appeared. King Airlangga, who had heard of this matter, then

asked for his advisor, Empu Baradah, to deal with this problem. Empu Baradah then sent his disciple, Empu Bahula, to be married to Ratna. Both were married with a huge feast that lasted seven days and seven nights, and the situation returned to normal. Calonarang had a book that contained magic incantations. One day, this book was found by Empu Bahula, who turned it over to Empu Baradah. As soon as Calonarang knew that the book had been stolen, she became angry and decided to fight Empu Baradah. Without the help of Durga, Calonarang was defeated. Since she was defeated, the village was safe from the threat of Calonarangâ€™s black magic. www.ciousmagz.com 69
