Sunday morning 6:15am, while everyone is still sleeping — I am already awake for challenges ahead.
I mean, real challenges.
I joined KK Treasure Hunt. An annual event held by Sabah Tourism Board, joined by other 150 teams around Malaysia.
.. but 99% are locals lah. Hahahaha.
My team mate: Elena, me, Delonia and Adrian.
The event prizes are huge — RM8,000 for Champion, RM5,000 for second prize and RM3,000 for 3rd prize if not mistaken.
This is our first time joining this event.
“Aiya, no chance to win this game de lah. I join for fun and experience only k?” I told Delonia before accepting her invitation to join treasure hunt.

I grew up at KK and I never knew this event existed. You can tell how huge is this event by judging on prize money and sponsorships.
“Must be marketing is too lousy bah”, referring to Sabah Tourism Board.
They need Ah Bing, the ultimate internet god to do promotion for them. — my conclusion. hehehe
Ohhhhh I felt so sakit hati to see these stickers on my car. After having a good car wash not long ago.
I worried if the stickers will leave any marks. Luckily they gave RM100 coupon for car wash and polish.
“Okay lah stick all you want!! I don’t have to wash the car myself, muahahhaha”

What’s KK Treasure Hunt anyway?
The game is similar to Amazing Race, we need to accomplish tasks and mission in order to proceed to next challenge — Whoever scored the most in shortest time will win the game.
- Drive from Point A -> B -> C -> D -> E -> F -> G in shortest time (you decide the route)
- Answer quiz. Clues are around KK. For e.g. Where is Tok Guru in Api-api center?
- Game challenges.
- Complete different tasks in shortest time. e.g. get a plant in XX, go tanam at YY, pick up 2kg rubbish at ZZ, then send back to AA.
“Niama… I just clean my car ahhh!!! why heavy rain!?” I shouted.
“Ui drive faster eh, we’re in a competition” Delonia commanded.
“Chiu!! You thought I’m driving sport car ahh? 70km/h is the fastest my car can go. Drive any faster my steering start to shake like Shakira”
=___= old car.
This is one of the mission: Plant some new plants at garden, pick up 2kg of rubbish at Tanjung Lipat.
The truck is filled with lots of rubbish, bukan main main. We can easily gather 2-3 more trucks of rubbish if we wanted.
WHY IS OUR BEACH SO DIRTY AHHHH? fuck you illegal immigrants.
Elena, Delonia and Adrian need to shoot down metal cans with paper and rubber band. The team will get 1 point for each can shoot down.
Total points: 1 point.
In this game, we need to throw slippers to the card decks and get as many card out of the circle. 1 point per card.
I took this challenge.
Total points: 22 points.
Pfft. Too easy la this game. *show off mode ON*
Our team moral immediately sky rocketed after realising we’re the top scorers in the game.
“We have chance to win RM8,000 ohhhhh!!!!”
… but when it comes to solving quizzes..
“Do you know answer for Question 1?”
“Question 2, anyone?”
“Question 3 leh?”
“Okay let’s just fill in the empty space, BU DIAO LIAO!!!! nyiahahahahhahha!!!”
I drove 7 hours straight.
Before the race begin, I told them I did not sleep previous night. Pretty much stayed awake whole night working on my project.
Nolah I’m not so hardworking
Actually I was suffering insomnia past few days. And I only get to sleep after 7am.
This treasure hunt started at 6am so I didn’t plan to sleep. at. all.. and had to stay awake through out the day.
I am so glad I finished the race without any hiccups.
I immediately fall asleep though.. battery has reached critical low level.
Best sleep ever.
PS: we didn’t win any prize, not even top 30.
