11 Amazing race~located at sutera harbour res0rt Link Web

12a tadi ada shooting AMAZING RACE ASIA kat pasar malam filipino. damn. haha. all the contestants have to eat 200 meatballs for each team. Link
Translation: there had been shooting AMAZING RACE ASIA near the Filipino night market. damn. haha. all the contestants have to eat 200 meatballs for each team.

12b venue: filipino market, located in kota kinabalu, sabah, malaysia.
time: 12june, about 5pm until 4 am(next day)
actually i'm a worker in the market. i did saw 7 teams before i leave the market. the 7th team that managed to arrive is about 1.30am. their task is to eat 200 chicken meatballs.
i do not know where they are from before arrive at the market. and where are they were heading to after completing the task because i already leave the market at 2am.
Link

yup, most of them got sick. haha. they just like drunk. haha. meatballs drunk. Link

13a Am in the same hotel AND was on the same flight as the AMAZING RACE ASIA participants (*hush,hush*) Link

13b yups, in sutera harbour (email)

14 TARA is shooting in Kg Tanjung Aru Baru. I managed to take a picture. So this it is. It's really shoot infront of my house. Unfortunately, my house is not in this picture. No timestamp for image yet. Link

15 Wah! Amazing race shoot in sapi island..find the flag hurry....! yeah.. I believe its amazing race asia Link

16 Travel to the TAR Marine Park is easy as hourly speedboat rides can be caught at the Jesselton Point Ferry Terminal in the northern end of Kota Kinabalu, along Jalan Fuad Stephens. Prices are fixed: It costs RM17 per person for each island visited (return to Jesselton Point included). A compulsory Tariff Fee of RM6 pp must also be paid at the Jesselton Point Terminal before departing. A RM10 pp Environmental Conservation Fee is payable upon arrival to the first island of the day. Each additional island you want to visit will cost an extra RM17 pp. Boats depart every hour to the island of your choice, with earliest departure at 7:30am and last departure at 4:30pm. The last return boats are at 5:00pm. The trip takes 15-20 minutes depending on the island. For unscheduled trips, you can charter a boat starting at about RM200. Web

17 Sapi is like Manukan, but smaller and is the second most developed and popular island in the park. It has basic restaurant facilities, toilets, snorkelling equipment rental and a few representative stands for water sports agents. Shallow water snorkelling offers some excitement, especially as the fish react favourably to tourists who usually feed them bread. There is a sand bank to the north of the island, which, at low tide, makes it possible to cross over to the south western tip of Gaya island. Web

WARNING. This message will talk about my perception on the first eppy. Read it if you really are well informed about the spoilers. HOWEVER, please don't if you really really don't want to be spoiled. But I think it doesn't spoil anything, but still :tup:

-----------
As usual, I hated Allan Wu as the lame host. :res: The tasks are nice, though some are random. Product placement to the max (but I liked it!). Teams? I love the cast. There's the Indian Brothers whom I loved to be annoyed. There's Ivan and Hilda, who looks sooo cute (but annoying sometimes).

TARA4 Episode Recaps (enter at your own peril; it's all Spoilers)
on: Today at 02:14:47 PM
   Reply with quoteQuote Modify messageModify
TARA4 started with a bang in Kuala Lumpur, capital of Malaysia. Allan Wu, really confident and poised in his role as host announced that the 10 teams met at a site in KL that I did not quite catch. There would be 11 legs, 7 elimination pit stops and unstated but by subtraction 3 non-elimination legs. Teams are reminded (as if they didn't know) that the first team across the finish line of the final leg wins the $100,000 US prize. Allan's arm was raised and his GO sent the teams in motion to retrieve the clues now on top of their backpacks. The starting point is Tien-Ho Temple.

This episode will have great nostalgia for Amazing Race fans. The first clue is to Batu Caves, where a ROADBLOCK awaits and where AR11, ep.9 happened. The drive is a long distance across the huge land area of KL, and many teams got lost along the way. Some had to ask for help and others just got their on their own. Each arriving team must choose one person to do the task before proceeding. This one is the classic climb up all 272 steps to the top with a gift basket for the monk with the clues. Those competing have to contend with pesky monkeys all over their legs, presumably trying to steal parts of the gift. Some teams kept the correct count and many did not and have to do it over.  The pain of the do-over convinced those teams to count more accurately, so there did not seem to be any problems with the second tries. As best I could determine, the arrival at the monk was:

1. Ethan and Khairie
2. Alan and Wendy
3. Yani and Nadine - their vehicle went dead but they hijacked a local to guide them, leaving him stranded when they received their clue
4. Richard and Richard
5. Ivan and Hilda
6. Hussein and Natasha
7. Sunanina and dimple
8. Sahil and Manas
9. Lani and Jess
I could not figure out where Michelle and Claire finished this ROADBLOCK, but they will turn up later.

The next clue is to the Penang Pernakan Museum. This was featured in AR16, ep. 8 as the pit stop. Teams had to look for "Baldwin" (unspecified what that means) and sing a song. Teams did not have much trouble with associating Baldwin with a fine piano brand with a marked Baldwin label on one sitting in plain sight somewhere in the museum. Under the cover was scores of sheet music to a new variation on the American folk tune "Amazing Grace":

Amazing Grace on the the football field
How meaningful we'll see
Defend the goal against the super strikers
Or get a penalty.

Teams were directed to Futsal Field, an indoor soccer league venue. There they faced young , perhaps 11 year old, soccer players trying to rip the soccer ball down their throats from about the penalty kick area. Each team member had to take a specific number of turns defending their relatively narrow goal. Any goals scored on them out of 8 tires would penalize them 2 minutes each on release. All the teams incurred some penalty; it range form 2 minutes for Richard and Richard to 16 minutes for Jess and Lani.

The next clue sent team to Swettenham Pier, where a clue sends them aboard the Star Cruise ship Pisces. The DETOUR is Flags, collect 5 nautical flags with cryptic clues in nautical terms, or Rags, where one member must go down the side of the ship to wash a window while the other goes into the ship to find that room from the inside and take a picture of that. This is not difficult except for those having trouble following directions (do you hear me, Yani and Nadine?). Teams almost always finish in the order they arrived on the ship. The pit stop is a short distance away including up 2 decks.

The finish order of the teams was:
1. Ethan and Knairie
2. Richard and Richard
3. Michelle and Claire
4. Sunanina and Dimple
5. Wendy and Alan
6. Ivan and Hilda
7. Sahil and Manas
8. Jess and Lani
9. Hussein and Natashe (how did they get out of last place? they were running way behind for a long time but finally caught up to the next team ahead)
10. Yani and Naidine - Allan asked why a last-place finish? These two appeared to be humbled by that experience but the car trouble was a major factor beyond their control (do such breakdowns on new cars happen often; I don't think so)

Allan Wu told them they were fortunate that this first episode (historically, 3 of ARA's 4 seasons now have gone first leg non-elimination) was a designated non-elimination point. So they were  still alive in the race but would have to finish first or incur a 30 minute penalty at the end of the next leg. In the history of Marked for elimination, I only remember David and Mary succeeding in finishing first.

Most of the performance variation was due to bad navigation and the relative focus on driving segments between tasks. Many teams got lost between tasks. They will have to get their collective acts together or get crushed.

I have to comment that two relatively low-key Male/Male teams finished first and second this leg. The Female/Female teams finished 3rd, 4th, 8th and 10th.

Loved the clue asking them to find the Pit Stop from TAR16. Seeing a small, little crossover like that is always fun! Nice to see the Batu Caves again but the Detour seemed too...random? While I enjoy TARA's challenging tasks (something US TAR can learn from a little), they tend to have tasks that are not all that culturally significant sometimes (something TARA can learn from a little).

Genuinely surprised that the cast full of mactors weren't primping and playing it up for the cameras as much as I thought they would, so yay for that!  :tup: Was scared the Richards would be Rovilson & Marc 2.0, but thankfully they're nothing like them...or at least not yet...we'll see. Love Ivan and Hilda! Always gotta have a soft spot for the wacky teams!

Still a little annoyed with the editing though. Still a bit choppy and would like to know how certain teams are able to pass one another up from Point A to Point B, rather than the sudden cuts showing one team suddenly ahead of another. And is it so difficult to seat teams during confessionals matching their names on the screen? If Sunaina and Dimple are on, it's not difficult to seat them on camera as Sunaina and Dimple and not the other way around (US TAR usually gets this right). I know, it's a small thing, but it still bothers me! A little more development on getting to know the teams wouldn't hurt either.

Overall, definitely looking forward to the rest of the season! Go Ivan and Hilda!

this leg seems to be too easy. it was pretty boring until the end when the last two teams made huge mistakes.

oh, i'm also done with my customary recap for episode 1. :)

yes, I'd watched the 1st episode of TARA 4 via video stream from AXN Asia's website and I say the quality and speed are nice without interference.  I wish this should be done from other TAR versions like in the US, Latin America and Australia. :tup:

I wish TARA will have speed bumps instead of being 'Marked for Elimination' or giving up all your money. At least teams may have the chance to avoid being eliminated.

It's done so that people won't be angry over how Speed Bumps lame, however, this might stir controversy about the teams who will get penalties like this.

But for me, as long as they are pre-determined, it's fine :tup:
