This evening I was walking north on Jl Seminyak (on the foot path), when someone on a scooter hit me from behind. I fell over, and another guy tried to grab my handbag off me.
For whatever reason - instinct maybe - I held on to the bag as if my life depended on it! In hindsight, a very bad decision, I know that. But I wasn't thinking and everything happened so fast! A New Zealand guy came rushing out of a shop to see if I was ok, and this made the scooter driver and his friend take off!!
The strange thing is it was by no means late. It was about 7.30pm and Jl Seminyak was pretty busy. Makes me think that these guys saw an opportunity and went for it, rather having planned it.
Anyway, nothing happened. I got away with just a few scrapes and bruises and a little bit of a fright. I just thought I'd tell you all
