offtopic, but if you are wondering why i'm typing like this, it's because i'm using my phone to surf the net and it's darn hard to type. i'm persistent to dig out all the singapore spoilers!

Great job Joab! Hope you get lucky!
I think TAR is too scared to go to the famous places, because they want few sightings!

This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

Joab!

Great job. Caught up with the folder. You're a TAR Detective and just in time for the holidays!  :cmas16 :cmas16

Can't think of a better Christmas present for a big TAR fan.  :yess: :yess: :yess: :cmas51 :cmas51 :cmas51 :cmas51

You guys might have already said this, but you think that the crew filming that ice cream stand scene might be a crew that would only film that kind of thing? All teams have their own crew. So maybe there's a crew that goes to the locations of tasks before all of the teams do and shoot a scene like this prior to all of the teams showing up?
Could be. Vendors have to do the same sort of standups Phil does; after viewers see the task/location, there's usually a shot of a local handing over the clue. There might be a task, though; box ice cream and the ice cream sandwich (literally--ice cream between two pieces of bread) are well-known there.

So you'll be going there to talk with the employees this weekend? :flirt:

I went to the Singapore Flyer today to enquire about what happened on Wednesday morning. Nope, everyone was tight lipped and they gave the no idea, not sure reply to me. :groan:

Entire view of the Singapore Flyer from The Esplanade (not far away) taken with my camera phone (night time) -



And nope, no leftover clues, flags or anything. :meow:

Possible locations for TAR related tasks in Singapore? (All pictures taken on the Esplanade Rooftop to show you guys how close exactly these locations are to each other) Sorry it was taken at night....


Top of Esplanade Roof top, good for TAR pitstop. Usually very isolated on a weekday morning.


Another view of Esplanade Roof top


Interior of the Esplanade.

NOTE: The Esplanade is considered as an arts theatre and if there should be a task placed there, i think the theatres, auditoriums, halls there will be used and it will be musically related. The Esplanade also has many wine bars and there could be some task related as well.. but don't think it is highly likely.


One Fullerton Hotel and the Merlion (very small, at the bottom of the picture). Somehow, i believe that finding the Merlion could be a Route Marker. Just my gut feeling. Imagine, they have to take the Singapore Flyer and spot their next cluebox at the Merlion? (Just across the river) But will very likely be spotted by people if they had such a task? No?


Our integrated resort still in construction. Does it reminds you of a TAR 16 Dubai-tallest building in the world task? No idea how a task could be held there, but highly unlikely.

And since teams were only spotted in Bugis and the Singapore Flyer which wouldn't go quiet without anyone noticing and no other sightings were spotted in Singapore.. it is highly likely that they visited some neighbourhood and less populated places to do some tasks like i've stated before.

Not the Botanical Gardens or Zoological Garden because they have went there before already. Not Chinatown because teams definitely would have been spotted. Maybe Little India or Clark Quay could be good locations for tasks held as well because they are all very near each other.

Maybe like cleaning a car at a Caltex Station in Singapore. :cmaslol :groan: :mas25

well... if locations are what you're looking for, this place on Clark Quay would make a fine pitstop.  :cmaslol

A pit stop at Hooters.  I like that idea.  Or they could have another beer serving Roadblock. :cmas5
