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).
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.
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)
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!
