Om Nom Nom!! I seriously miss this race! It is fun and crazy ;D Courtesy to Nuffnang and Maxis, Team Naan of Mai Business manage participated this race and won 1st runner up! Woops! We are awesome rite? Not to forget thanks to our God of Naan! teehee ;P



* Suefei, me, Ken & Jieyi *

The race take starting point at Modesto's Capsquare. Yupz, this gonna b our ending point as well. We required to run into 5 places by the hint given and complete the task within 7 hours in total.

Emcee of the race was Niki Cheong. This gonna be my first time seeing him to speak on stage. Next is the game master from maxis, YC brief us about the race, rules and point system.

Basically, we need to find a marshal by the first clue given using GPS Coordinate. Once we found the marshal, we'll b given a riddle to solved it and the Restaurant name will appear after that. In addition, we were given a template that contain answer for the Marshal and the restaurant location. However by using the template, point will be deducted. We earn point by getting reach the destination, blogging, twitter and facebook. Pretty fair rite?


* A pic b4 we move! *

Each team was provided with a laptop and iPhone for our hunt. Sad to say the laptop and iphone given to us is pretty badly screw up. The laptop was hang like mad. We type few words hang, we click a folder or file hand, not to mention open a browser make the laptop even worst..sigh :( The iphone provided by us cant setup the finder301 apps, no data plan inside and causing us cant use GPS (thanks to God of Naan, Ken iPhone4 never failed us that day).


* iPhone 3Gs *

* Everyone setting up the Finder301 *

So by using a 1st GPS Coordinate given by us, we found the marshal at HSBC bank PJ and the restaurant was Strawberry Fields. We are the 4th group reach d location. Pretty good rite? :)

Forth place was abit tricky and hard to find. It was located at Sri Damansara, a place i dun familiar at all. Not to mentioned the riddle given by us is totally kill our eyes. D restaurant name was scale until "mother also kenot recorgnize" - chinese idiom. But i guess i quite genius on that day, i manage to figure out the first 3 words is "THA" and we assuming it is THAI restaurant. Suefei manage to solved it all base on my guidelines and come to the conclusion it is ThaiBase Restaurant. Yay! We're 4th group to reach there since alot group dying solving the riddle ;P
