He posted it using Instagram Stories, the Snapchat-ish new feature. It's not on his regular Instagram posts.  If you're using the Instagram app, it should be right on the top of the main feed.

I uploaded the 2 videos to YouTube: https://youtu.be/nr53pyp-pW8
Any lip readers out there? They could probably find out what he's saying in the first video lol

maybe it's too late but in his Instagram story about 4/5 days ago while they're in KL, Allan posted this.
I'm pretty sure this was the Pitstop, not the Armenian Street i've identified earlier.

Anyone see teams leave Philippine or in airport ?

So nervous !

None so far. So while waiting for sightings of them, i share you what i gathered from 2 fb users who have witnessed the race. Yes,  i had chats with them when they replied to my messages.

IN QUIAPO:

1. They were in Quiapo at around 3:30 - 4pm
2. One witness was at the Mercury Drugstore in Plaza Miranda in Quiapo when JK/Mike came in and were followed shortly by Maggie/Parul. They bought medicines from the durgstore. They were holding plastic bags and when I asked her if she saw what was inside the bags, she said RICE. (note: i showed her pictures of all teams to identify which one she saw)
3. Later on when she was walking outside the drugstore, she bumped with Yvonne/Chloe. They were rushing to the drugstore, holding plastic bags as well as white cartoon (the Grab cartoon). Anita of Thailand was folllowing them. She can't remember if Anita was with someone because she said she was focused to her, she was smitten with her beauty.
4. She did not see any teams in Quiapo market or Quinta but she overheard from people around the area that they were there buying stuffs (this is after the drugstore)

ON THEIR WAY TO VIGAN, INSIDE THE BUS:

1. The witness saw only 5 teams inside the bus. They were at Partas Bus Terminal in Pasay at around 7:30pm
2. They reached Vigan at 3am the following day (August 18) and alighted from the bus at Partas station in Vigan
3. Another witness saw them filming in Plaza Salcedo at 9am
4. He overheard some teams went to the Quirino Stadium (He's not sure about this one)

Allan's latest Instagram story, posted around 9pm Friday Pacific Time/12pm Saturday Philippine/Taiwan/Hong Kong Time:
<a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/amHCIjkeDXU" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://www.youtube.com/v/amHCIjkeDXU</a>

He's shirtless and excited to get a tan (lol) while waiting for teams at the next Pit Stop.
It looks like maybe a rooftop or something?  If the Leg is only finishing up now, then it is likely outside of the Philippines. But where?!

Is this JK & Mike? So they're in Singapore.
Maybe the absence of signs is a sign.

CONFIRMED!! TARJr is right. They are in Singapore now. I was able to talk to the owner of the picture.

Those were DJ and Mike in the picture. He saw them at Merlion Plaza near the Ruffles Station, near the bridge. He saw them at between 2:30 - 3pm today. With them are Yvonne/Chloe. They were just running and then Yvonne/Chloe went to the direction of the bridge. They went on different directions.

Not exactly a live sighting, but i found an IG post and apparently she's one of the medical team. She took a photo at Prambanan Temple and from her comment section, it implies that the filming also happened there today.

Found another photos from Vigan/Philippines leg on facebook. I'm just going to post two important things here: an HoO at Adventure Zone and a team (possibly Tom & Anita?) doing sausage detour.

Great find, Prama. I was keeping an eye to Sphere Travels, the source of these pictures, when I found out a week ago that this was the agency commissioned by the TARA to provide them transport service their crew from Manila to Vigan.

The first picture is in Banaoang/Quirino bridge in Bantay, Ilocos sur. They probably did wall climbing or ziplining there.

The second picture is in Plaza Burgos in Vigan City.

10 hours ago, Allan posted a pic on a plane with Tara Basro: https://www.instagram.com/p/BJbzNbzg2Xh/
He captioned it with: Let's Fly! Time to catch the second flight of three today to the next pit stop ✋

They need to take 3 flights to fly within Indonesia?!

if they need 3 flights to get out from Jogja then the most possible next destination is Banyuwangi. Banyuwangi has a small airport, and the only way to get there is via Surabaya. But i doubt that Garuda has a direct flight from Jogja to Surabaya. So they need to get to Jakarta first. The possible flight that Allan and crew took: Jogja to Jakarta, Jakarta to Surabaya then Surabaya to Banyuwangi.

I provide 3 possible flights that has a time match with Allan's instagram post (and his instagram stories too) below

I think that is the Kawah Ijen Volcano climb. Both the blue fence and the baskets used by the miners to carry out the sulfur match.

Nice article on the climb.
