Google translation:

And a reply to this wall post is:

tadi saya kelam kabut pegi tuaran...skali ada kelisa manas keta dia kena over take...trus dia mo racing ma saya??!!!hahahahahahaha...paluiiiiii........malu kalah ma pmpn lah tue....wakakakakaka!!!

"I was rushing on my way to Tuaran.. suddenly a Kelisa (car) took over my car.. she wants to race with me??? hahaha &*^*.. hope SHE loses... haha"


bagitu la ba gaya bumiputera....eksiden nanti kena angkat ambulans juga...no komen....

"Tell them... that's local style.. if there's an accident, an ambulance will come... no comment"


That's loose translation from the local Sabahan dialect/lingo? So the McDonalds was in Kota Kinabalu International Airport after all?

AR4 ep. 8 went to Kota Kinabalu, Manukan Island for the blowpipe/arrow/spear ROADBLOCK.  Ep. 9 then went to Poring Hot Springs for navigation of rope bridges, the Orangutan FAST FORWARD, the infamous Chop or Haul DETOUR and finally a ROADBLOCK to climb the rope ladder at Gomantong Caves before finishing in Sepilok. This were some of the most exciting tasks for all of AR4.

The place shown in the picture is on Bencoolen Link at the corner with Waterloo St in downtown Singapore. Singapore (City/Country) is not far away from Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia.

Here is the street view:

TAR Latin America, which doesn't go to Asia, uses blue-black-blue flags.

30000 people asking questions is a disaster.

But this looks real, so thank you!!

We had an awesome picnic at marina barrage today! Even though we didnít get to rest our bums on the grass pasture at level 2 cos there is some event (we think it is amazing race asia, cos we saw some angmoh filming crew and two backpackers running here and there) and we had to wake up at 7-ish am; IT WAS WORTH IT! ((:

Not sure how far the barrage is from that ice cream place.

For those of you as puzzled as i was once about what an angmoh was/is.......literally translated means "red haired" but typically used  by people in singapore and malaysia to to describe Caucasian people........

Thanks ams06 !!  You found the confirmation that I was looking for!

This is the grassy area of the dam Marina Barrage




Panoramio of the city from Marina Barrage.  It shows the Singapore Flyer.


Here is the location on GE.  All this is too new for GE.  So it is not in the image.   :cmaslol

So this picnic happened about 15 to 18 hours ago.

Probably safe to call it 10 am to 1 pm local time that they saw the racers arrive at this (speculating here  :cmas11) Pit Stop.

Dear dear dear... the Marina Barrage will definitely be my selected place for Pitstop... IMO.

Is there anyway that this is the pitstop instead? Don't see any possible task happening there, except for a route marker.

Okay, so it's definitely TAR in Singapore? :cmas19 :cmas22 :cmas18

I don't know if this is relevant, but it was also posted around this time.

xxLoveLiNess @siproducer Why are Sylvia and Sezairi shooting on Singapore Flyer?? LOLxp

Don't know what this means, but just in case.

EDIT: Sylvia and Sezairi are Singapore Idol contestants. Probably not related. But I tried. :cmaslol

Do you think all of this is for TARA?  (and they brought in their own celebs like TAR USA did?)

Well those two wouldn't be racing right now (because they are competing in the finale on the 27th (?)), but I think TARA in Singapore right now is possible.

I had seen this post on FB earlier but i think i goes along with the race you guys are talking about:
