The hunt is on again. This is the 7th time DBKK held its annual treasure hunt. About 98 cars participate in the hunt and it is the second time my team joined. Yes, my team, Lelipan. Unlike last year where there are only a few physical challenges, this year it is totally different. It’s a bit like a mini Explore Race type challenge where we have to go sight seeing to get the answer, mostly historical. Thank god we got 3G. Do you know where KK Gallery is? It’s recently launch, and it is on the 7th floor, Centre Point. That’s just the first challenge of Leg 1.
Then Leg 2, challenge2, we have to find answer from clues provided by the organizer. We get a few, we lost a few. And it’s totally up to us which sector we want to do first. It’s a safer bet if we just follow the sequence. The sectors are Api-Api Centre, Sinsuran and Damai Plaza. Darn clue, we were so absorb in finding the answer that we totally forgotten about the time limit.
Then comes challenge 3 where we have to walk on stilts. I failed miserably. Hey, it has been like 20 years since I last play the bloody thing. We also have to identify which tribe from their traditional costume. I think we manage to get 3 out of 5.
After that it’s Leg 4. Now this is where we follow a set of tulips to get to the treasure area. What is tulip you ask? It’s a substitute to maps. Unlike map where you got a clearer picture where you are going, tulips just show you where to go and which area have the answer to sets of clue. Easier than Leg 2 because all answer are in sequence. We have physical challenge in Leg 4. You are required to get 5kg rice bag that they want on a given time. We missed 1 bag. We skipped a few answer because we don’t have much time left to find it.
We didn’t get a placing this year. We overshoot out time limit. We were given 7 hours instead we arrive after 8 hours so they have to deduct our marks. But overall, although we’re tired, we didn’t win anything, it is still fun. There’s another treasure hunt in April. You can bet we’ll be joining it.
