Milo Peng Panas

What is in this paradox name? Hehe... This is, or should I say, was, our team's name which entered the Amazing Race Swinburne organized by the (i don't know which) club... It was fun as it was the very first adventure race kind of thing for me as I have never done anything like it before..

It started as any other day with the weather just right, not to hot and just some cool breeze... We gathered at the Civic Center car park and waited to be transported to the rugby field behind some shop houses in Padungan.. Can't really tell the place name as I do not like to misspell stuff.. Hehe..
The first checkpoint was at the infamous cat statue near the fire station.. We were the eighth team to arrived as we made a mistake thinking about the other cat statue which was near McDonald's... That was our first mistake, well, second if counting that we took another team's first clue.. Well, what to do? The game must go on!!! Hahaha... Next, we headed to Topspot or Taman Kereta (why don't they just call the place as Car Park rather than this) and try to find a black Perodua car with the number 6112 or 2119.. But it was so obvious that the car was parked terribly awkward in the parking space and we found it easily...
The next one was quite challenging as we had to cross the river to get to Fort Margaretha.. Actually, we need to go across using the sampan or as the locals called it, penambang..
Rode the penambang, arrived at the other side, sang "You are my sunshine", arrived at the fort, blow ping pong ball, get to the top of the tower, receive the next clue to the next checkpoint, went back to the penambang again and went to the next checkpoint which was only the 'station master', as they called it, sitting there eating lunch, and read the clue which asks about what movie will be playing during 4 to 5 pm at Star Cineplex and then tell the President of the (oh shit! I forgot the name) club at Riverside Cineplex.. We went to the nearest 7-Eleven and 'borrowed' their newspaper to search for the movie.. Another team member was searching for a new pair of shoes during this process as his shoe, the tapak cabut already, wahahahaha... So he bought a new pair of shoes during the race.. Fuiyo!!! Respect sama lu... So after all that has been settled, we went to the archery place in Medan Pelita.. Waited for the place to open at 11.. By then, we were the second last team to arrived out of a total of ten teams.. So what position were we in? Hehe.. Sempat polah IQ test.. Hahaha...

While the other teams were buzy trying their aims and shots with penalized time because of missing the target, we caught up and got fourth place.. Very fortunate of us.. Went for lunch at Medan Pelita, after that, went to Reservoir Park to play some stupid blindfold game.. And after that, Panggung Udara to search some ping pong balls...

Final task was to count how many letters had smiley faces on them and that's it.. Not that interesting as you can see on TV that is..

We arrived fourth and was penalized 10 minutes of waiting time because of the wrong pick of the first clue.. oh well, luck was just not on our side...

Congratulations to the other teams who won..

But the best part is...
Jalan kaki pun dapat potong teksi!!!
