I think this may be in penang's tropical spice gardens( The site mentions a giant swing but haven't found a picture to post)

Buses are the much speedier option, with journey times approximating 8.5h. These leave frequently between 8.00am and 10.30am, then again from 8.30pm to 11.00pm.


I assume that Neobie has never been to Malaysia or Singapore. DON'T TAKE THE BUS DOWN. Reason: The Causeway. Causeway jams are horrible. Joab might know what I'm talking about.

:lol3: (My reply in the Singapore thread!)

Anyway... Note how the Chingay option is much closer to the Pit Stop than the Incense option. If I were TPTB and planning for things to be somewhat fair, the Roadblock would come after the Detour.

Adding this one, appears that the Cowboys run past the Yogi in the swing...

Wow, thank you so much Neobie for all the help!! And thank your friends for us!!

Okay, so what do we have??

Snake Temple (Neobie: snake temple is the famous Temple of the Azure Cloud (清雲巖) at Bayan Lepas.) : get a clue??

Tropical spice gardens and Yogi (?) in a swing (Caper: Penang's tropical spice gardens http://www.malaysiasite.nl/spices.htm )>> could this be the Speedbump??

Detour: Chingay (flag carrying on the head/face) in the Padang Kota Lama! Translates into "Field of the Old Fort," just outside Fort Cornwallis (Neobie) in front of the Penang Town Hall.
 VS incense carrying at Thnee Kong Thua (天公壇), or Altar of the Jade Emperor (Neobie)

RB: coconut smashing (location??)

Pitstop: Peranakan Mansion


Wow, as Boingo would say, it is only Tuesday and our work is done. :lol:

Caper's link mentions the spice garden as being near the Mutiara resort, a beach place with similar balcony/windows (I'd like more pictures before calling it, though) (source).

I looked at the caps on either side, and I don't think so... Whatever it is , it has a long string on it.

Also, isn't that the Detour location for the flag task, in front of the Town Hall?? Why would she be hanging around there?

Looks like Steve and Allie doing the Flag Detour.......so she is probably trying to get a taxi. Did you get a screencap just before this one, without the Sun blending in?

Jet/Cord are looking for a taxi outside the Snake Temple, I think. That means they're behind at the start then?

The tour bus, passer-by in a cowboy hat, and the store hawking "鐘金泉" (brand name of an ingredient for rojak, popular as a souvenir, especially for Chinese tourists) suggest this is a tourist destination. I was looking around in the historic district, but not much luck with the stripes (which are clearly visible on Google Earth) and the row of trees. Think the Snake Temple fits the bill!

Note the staircase, ramp and railings in the first pair of photos.

If Steve/Allie switch Detours that can't be good.

I meant...why would they be there if they were doing the FF??

Where do we see Steve and allie doing the Incense?? ??

I'll go check those caps, but I think there were only 3 blurred ones....

No...it goes right to a big sun...this is the only one... But IS this Steve?? Looks right but I thought his shorts were darker...

Hmm, I assumed that they were looking for the incense temple when they end up at Kek Lok Si, but you're right - it's just an assumption!

Hmm...on the green thing...

It could be a FF clue that she just hasn't put away yet. But right now I'm more inclined to think of it as the clue they get after the Detour. Maybe it's a green piece of a flag instead of the usual paper clue?
