I would have posted this on Monday, but knowing Streamyx is as reliable as Air Asia being on time, streamyx decided to die on me... FOR TWO DAYS

So what better way to spend the eve of an exam you might ask? It's none other than joining 1 Utama's Ultimate Race! Ultima--WHAT? It's actually just like Amazing Race, but only in 1 Utama's New Wing and with lots and lots of young high school girls in hot short shorts.

Since i am not the sort of person who ditches studies for something fun, i planned ahead. I revised earlier than usual, which is one week prior to exams instead of the normal few days before, so by the time sunday arrived, i was prepared both mentally and physically for my exams and the RACE!!

The race was help at 1 utama and there were 116 teams who came, where each team consists of two person. Jeng actually registered a week earlier and he told me that at that moment there were only 9 groups registered. They were giving 11 prizes so we figured we have a good chance of winning. Or so we though. pbfft. Did i mention the first prize was 10 000 ringgit?!?!?!?!

Just like the amazing race, we had to run around with our given clue and figure out where is where is what and in the mean time do some simple challenges such as rock climbing, futsal, drinking Diet Coke, take a picture wearing googles and flippers, count the number of fishes and the number of shops and what not. the challenges were fine, but the crappy part is that the organizers purposely made all the points opposite of each other so at the end, i think i've ran more than 10km all over 1 utama.

It was fun and all and i really really had a great time plus, finally i've learned how to get my way around 1 utama because no matter how many times before this, i always get myself lost there. every time.

3 hours later the game ended and we were just 4 clues short. Yea you guessed it right. We didn't win. But it's not because we suck or n00b or incompetend but really the rock climbing challenge killed everyone. WHY? well there were 116 teams, and it takes arounf 5 minutes for each person to prepare and finish the challenge so in the end, the first team to arrive and the last team will have more than an hour lead. An hour extra time of finishing the game. I waited 30 minutes or so.

Other than just the 10 000 ringgit prize, 10 consolation prizes were also given, which was 1000 ringgit and some goodie bag. A bunch of high school girls got that prize. I didn't. Must be my jeans. I ran with jeans. They ran with short shorts.

After sunday i had my exams on monday which turned out to be not as tough as i thought then tuesday had a one day boring class then came home i went WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

because ill be going down for practicals for three weeks which simply translates to 3 weeks of having nothing to study. yeah. any plans call me up!
