Allan posted a few hours ago on Instagram that he's on a plane and has eliminated a team (presumably on the last Leg I assume)  :)

Philippines possibly?
Allan posted on Instagram Stories of being in a rainy city then a video of his lunch:

which immediately made me think of a budol/boodle meal in the Philippines where all the food and your "plate" is basically on the banana leaves.

Then Allan just posted this video of a horse and cobblestone street on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/BJMyyBGA9M9/
And like the person also commented, I also immediately thought of Intramuros in Manila.  It's been raining in Manila last couple of days (complete with tornado!) so maybe?

Also, Allan mentions it's the 11th day of the Race. If that helps.

Confirmed! TARA5 is in Manila!

A nice guy named Oliver posted photos on Facebook of the teams racing through Quiapo in Manila.

Looks like the task has them fulfilling orders buying stuff in the market and putting them into big Grab boxes. Probably going to deliver them using GrabExpress or something like that.

Teams in the photos:
Louisa & Treasuri
Eric & Rona
Parul & Maggie

And since Philippines is confirmed.  Allan's IG post suggests at least a Route Marker in Intramuros. Pit Stop is possible, but it seems early for him to be there if he just finished lunch lol

Hello RFF! I thought I would always be a lurker and had no intention of signing up but just to regularly come here and peep. But I was wrong. Since I am not seeing posts/updates about this race which is happening at the moment in the Philippines, I decided to register.

dryedmangoez posted pictures of the teams in Quiapo, the next place they went to was in Pasay in a Bureau of Fire/Rescue Office. (I saved this from a facebook account but I forgot to save the name of the person. am trying to find it but I can no longer see it.)

And at the moment, they have boarded a bus going to Ilocos (Ilocos Sur probably because the niece is going to Vigan). A niece of my friend just mentioned that she is with the team in a bus which is now on its way to the northern part of the country. If they are going to Vigan or Laoag, they will arrive in the morning anytime from 6am-9am

Hey constitution! I found the FB page of the with those Pasay pics: https://www.facebook.com/eruprc/
It's for the national HQ of the Emergency Response Unit of the Philippine Red Cross.

They probably delivered the stuff they bought in Quiapo here.

Thanks dryedmangoez..

Here is a U-turn marker in Vigan City the capital of Ilocos Sur province. This is in Plaza Salcedo just in front of St. Paul Cathedral.

It looks like they were given a checklist (Maggie looks like holding one) or were told to buy random things from different stalls in Quiapo market and deliver it to the national headquarter of the emergency response unit of the Philippine Red Cross using a Grab taxi. Once there, they were given their next clue and that is probably to travel to Vigan City for the U-turn

With the permission of the owner, I am posting pictures of the teams when they were spotted in NAIA TERMINAL 2 at around 1:30pm yesterday (August 17). The spotter/owner of these pictures saw 6 teams (in one of the pictures below, you can see them there)

@janicago

Here is a picture of Allan  with the Bell Tower as the backdrop. They are standing infront of St. Caridad Church, the cathedral of Bantay, Ilocos Sur, a town before Vigan.

Could this be the PITSTOP?

Found another IG post from someone in Vigan.
In English: "A picture before continuing to prepare for The Amazing Race Asia tomorrow."
One of the hashtags is #ChickenLongganisa.

Safe bet that one of the tasks will involve longganisa (sausages). Vigan specifically has their own longganisa specialty.  The Detour in TARPH1's Vigan Leg was between making or eating longganisa.  So definitely could be either one of those as a task.

Allan's latest Instagram story posts:

From yesterday, likely after the Pit Stop, maybe late afternoon

Maybe already on the way back to Manila?

This one was posted 13 hours ago, which would put it around 4am/Friday Philippine Time:

It's a video, but there was no sound.  Could it be an airport?

This latest one was posted 4 hours ago, which would put it around 1pm/Friday Philippine (and Taiwan hehe) Time

It's a video and he says they're filming in caves.
