MORE FLIGHT INFO

In order to assure that the info in my aboev post is correct, I decided to run through all the major connecting points in ASIA to make sure none could land a flight into KUL earlier than 0605 on Sunday Dec. 10. Here is what I found out:

Singapore - much later
Bangkok - much later
Istanbul - much later
Bangalore - no flight arriving early on Sunday
Delhi - MH191 departing 2300 lands KUL 0655, but can't connect from KRK in time due to multiple connections needed
Mumbai - MH195 departing 2215 lands KUL 0545, but can't connect from KRK due to multiple connections needed
Chennai - MH 181 departing 2215 lands KUL 0440, but can't connect from KRK due to multiple connections needed; misses via Frankfurt by less than 1 hour

hakushu - Just wondering on those cookies. What's it called? The local name's okay.

From Romeo's picture, it seems like they're similar to the ones that's found in puddin's link (the Chinese or Malay varieties - the Malay ones are referred to as Kuih Raya).

Quote
georgiapeach -if there was a Yield--do you think you and your guys would have been able to see it? So they did steal the batik thing from TARAsia?

I think we would've seen it. I don't think any of us saw it (but we could always be wrong). The batik thing from TARAsia was of the decorative kind (where you draw the designs).. the batik thing from puddin's link are of the sarong kind (where the patterns are printed). Not exactly sure which one they did for TARAS, maybe Romeo knows.

Quote
duchess - how far ahead was the BQ, when C/M finished the task, and how did C/M finish ahead of the rest of the teams when they switched tasks?

Between the time the BQs finished the roadblock and the time C/M finished theirs.. I believe the time was over an hour. I can't tell what happened after the roadblock (possible taxi problems, traffic etc)

Quote
neobie - Newspaper collection? Oh, and public transport from KLIA to the city is tough enough (if you want to save money and skip the express rail service). From the city to Batu Caves using public transport? Close to impossible..! (Being the cheapskate backpacker I was, I tried searching and failed miserably...)

Wow.. good job on the newspaper collection thingy. And nice catch, by the way, Colby! It will be something similar to that. And OMG you are so right about using the public transport to Batu Caves.. I'm a local and I wouldn't do it if you paid me a million dollars. (okay I might - but it really is a pain in the ass).

puddin - good find on the batik and festive cookies! btw, the Pudding Johor in your avatar? Yum. Basically that's just pudding with good old English custard and fruit cocktails.

slowhatch - very nice work on the Google Earth points! And yes, Batu Caves IS under the clouds LOL

I hope I didn't miss anyone! I'm so impressed by all your spoilings!  :jam:

So many wasted cookies... er, maybe not a lot since only Charla/Mirna seemed to have done this one. Thanks for that picture, Romeo. :happy:

Mirna does the Roadblock for this one, as well as that unaired Roadblock on Episode 7. Which means Mirna = 5, Charla = 3. Charla would have to do three of the last four Roadblocks, because of the 6 Roadblock per team member rule. I'm thinking if the Roadblocks aren't that physical, there is always a possibility that Charla would do well on those Roadblocks, and possibly help them to always place first (or second). However if the Roadblocks require lots of physical capability, this would be a good reason why they ultimately  place 3rd in the final leg, especially if Charla performs the final, physically demanding Roadblock. :groan:

So now I wonder, was there a bike in the Roadblock that would've allowed Charla to do it? If not, then this would be like that Detour option in Mto Wa Mbu from TAR 5, wherein they had to go to a honey harvesting farm by bikes, and unfortunately (I think), Charla couldn't ride the bikes provided.
just dance

I don't understand the question, and I won't respond to it.

I just hope this wasn't a TBC leg, because that wouldn't really count as a first place!

haha, yeah, so far i've seen Phil in the brown shirt that he does the "phil's preview" in, and that one!

I wonder if she knows that Izad ( :jam: ) already told the entire internet who is the winner & the loser!

I had trouble loading the large pictures when I clicked on them. But I did find a cookie stall at the Chow Kit market (source page).

I found these cookies at chow kit in Kuala Lumpur. It has a daily market at chow kit and you can see colorful cloths, passion fruits. I bought these cookies because 3boxes are just 10RM(=about 300yen)! It's reasonable.

There were problems with photos in her other albums as well. When I tried to jimmy the URL I was redirected to the membership login.

Peter and Ryan are probably sound guys. Veronica Mikaelian is a field producer.

Looking at the windows, KL International?



I mean, duh, stating the obvious. :lol:

But we can probably tell the time from our pictures, right? :kuss:
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

In the 2 pictures with Kamarul there are charts hanging in back of him and stuff to their left (your right) on a table.  Can anyone make out any of the writing or stuff on the table to determine if TAR stuff?

That looks like a nice airport.

I can't wait to see D/K come first this Sunday. I wonder when the first yeild is going to show up.

Peter and Ryan are probably sound guys. Veronica Mikaelian is a field producer.

Veronica is not a Field Producer.  She is a Field Production Manager.  There is a big difference.  A producer is more concerned with program content, how things are coordinated, how the race is run.  A production manager is more concerned with technical details, assignment of crews, money matters, etc.  I know, I was a Field Production Manager with CBS-TV for two years.

Your full of surprises Gman!! So given the dates we can conclude this episode is not a TBC since Izad has given us the pitstop and nischan has confirmed with her ...
Not gonna tell who is the winner & the loser.... and we lose Dec 11th in the timeline, extended pitstop, Malaysia Dec 10th & Hong Kong Dec 12th yadda yadda.
