Tasik Cruise Chap Goh Meh Treasure Hunt

The results just in! We managed a creditable 7th placing. It wasn't the usual treasure hunt. Rather this one comprised of a drive hunt, a short walk hunt at Alamanda Putrajaya and a mandarin throwing competition at the main lake in Putrajaya.

The journey would take us from behind Sunway Summit to the jam-logged SS14 and 15 (in USJ), to the equally bad Bandar Puchong Jaya and finally to Putrajaya. The team recruited a new face, Wen Dee to be the 4th member and she acquitted herself well, helping Newton in qualifying for the mandarin throwing Grand Finals.

The main hunt saw the team stumble in the anagrams and some observation based questions but we rallied strongly back in the 2nd portion of the hunt and hauled ourselves back to 7th placing. This was thanks to the superb mandarin throwing and the walk hunt segments.

As this was a small hunt, only the top 3 teams in the hunt proper took home cash prizes, with the 4th and 5th placed teams winning hampers. For qualifying in the mandarin throwing Grand Finals, our team took home RM200. We went home really tired, the haze not helping at all. However our journey home was not before Newton being called up to demo some kungfu skills!
