And the Dragon Detour docks were under construction for the GE image.  But this is where they would be, goint by the buildings shown in the background.

And I have looked in Coloane for the those curvy pavement lines.  Nothing.  There is not much to the town.  I checked all of it and could not find any buildings to match the shots.

The old port at Coloane has the same pavement design; the fish market might be nearby (see here).
On a different topic, the mokes were provided by "agencia de viagens e tourismo vit macau," but when you track that down it turns out to be plain ol' Avis.  ;D

Anyone with good res theres a good shot of Erics watch if someone could grab it?
Well I watched my copy Puddin and I can see two lines can't tell hour or minute hand (or if he has a hand for seconds), but it looks like one is between the 9 and 10, and one is close to the 1.

So I guess either 15-10 til 1.  Which seems like not near enough time.

Or 15-to 10 til 2pm

So I but it is a guess, I want beablet o check better until I get it coverted to DVD where I can frame search.

I freeze-framed all the shots with Eric and there is too much glare on the watch face to be able to determine exactly what time he has on his watch.  In the process of looking at watches it is interesting to note that in the shots of Mirna at the wheel of the Avis Mini you can see her wristwatch up pretty close, BUT  and this is nasty, TPTB have had the face of the watch obliterated with a black glob which makes it impossible to read the watch face when it is facing toward you!  Obviously TPTB are now going out of their ways to keep vital information from the TAR detectives on this site.

Thanks Slowhatch.  From your pic at least I found were the pavement is by that pier.

^^ I think they blob them out too Gman   :meow:
I'm so looking forward to mswoods time-line..I've rewatched the last 30 minutes over and over and there is for sure some funky editing going on. I'm map handicapped..would the fish task have been before the Detour or after before the Pitstop?

I keep telling y'all--TPTB are on to Chateau!  

Special camera filters to block the sunlight, little balls of light, blobbed out watches--his fame has spread far and wide--just look at the effort they've had to go to to avoid his eagle eye!

Here's a map of the three islands--maybe that will help everybody picture it!

I heard the BQ's ask their taxi for the SNEF (?) building on the way to the noodles?

It is in part 2 at about 5:30...

Yup, peach is right, they say we are going to he S-N-E-F building.

The building that D/K and C/M go into to do the noodles task has English writing on top of the Chinese writing, and it says "edificio fabril veng kin", but I just saw that puddin seems to have found this already!

Singapore National Employers Federation (SNEF)

maybe the noodle shop is next to it or something--unless it is in the union headquarters!

I actually think puddin had it in Portuguese! (I feel Oswald's frustration!)

So how did you know which of the 13 it was--any relation to the SNEF building? Was that pic on the show?

nevermind--just saw Michael's edited post!

See--it "takes a village" around here! :lol:

I didn't know WHAT I had! ??? :lol:

The backpack you see is the BQ's going through the door. I had less luck with the dragon-head factory; the script was unreadable.

Thanks!

Do we know when the fishy task was?

All I can think of is before the noodles based on Mirna's wet hair...

I'll look around...
In the meantime, have racers ever been issued box lunches before?  :lol:

ETA: it's not after the mokes. You can see racers mouth the words Taipa, pitstop, etc.
