Sorry, Can't Resist The Laughter

A Seberang Takir, Kuala Terengganu woman was forbidden to look at herself in the mirror for a month by a medium.

She followed the rule thinking that was supposedly to avoid the magic in the treatment formula from being dispelled - She is on the highway to become the sexiest lady in town through traditional treatment. The 33-year-old's hope for a magical transformation into a pretty maiden. But she realised the magic did not work when the big day came.
After 31 days, her appearance was still the same chubby woman with blackheads, pimples and all.
She had parted with RM2,250 (S$980), at least RM250 (S$110) for each treatment session. The victim then confronted the medium at his house to get a refund.

She lodged a police report the same day, at the end of January 2010. Police arrested a 34-year-old man to facilitate investigations.

A retired couple lost their life savings of RM750,000 (S$326,000) when they were cheated into handing it over to a bomoh, a traditional medicine man, who claimed he could cure the husband’s illness.

The husband could be cured if they gave him RM750,000 to be placed in a coffin. The medicine man convinced them to buy the coffin and have it kept in a temple in Kuching, Sarawak, and he would place the money in it on their behalf.
The husband would be cured provided the money was not touched for 3 years.

The incident happened in the middle of 2009 but the couple only lodged a police report on the second week of January 2010 after suspecting that they had been cheated.
Police arrested the bomoh, 35, and his accomplice, 47, at separate locations.

Police also seized the coffin, which was empty, and a vehicle which the bomoh was believed to have purchased with the money.

Superstition can turn really bad. I am just glad the old couple got their money back.
As for the woman, I wonder what she was thinking.
