16th Dec 2008 (the journey begins)

Ho Ho Ho…Santa Claus is coming to Kuching. Minex Jewellery organizes Finder's Keepers treasure hunt from from 15th till 24th December. This year should be called meaningful to all of us in Kuching. It is the first and special activity that we have in Kuching. Thanks to Minex Jewellery. We participate in this treasure hunt start from 16th December. Actually the treasure hunt started on the 15th but I didn’t get to join because I have things to deal with.

On the 16th December, the riddle was like this:-
“Take the train to where the hungry gather, where 8 marks the spot.”

The first thing we thought was coffeeshop at Jalan Keretapi and table number “8”. But then Jalan Keretapi got many coffeeshop. We started to go and looked for it.

When we passed by 5 Loaves Café about 9.10am, we decided to go there for a looked because the café go the number of “5” instead of “8”. That looks a bit suspicious. Therefore, my bf go down there for a look (raining and we park the car aside). But awhile only, he got back to me saying that “No number on table la”. Since no number on table, then it shouldn’t be the place la.
Then we drive around there twice. We search for shoplot number 8 but we found it is a clinic.

We thought for awhile. Then we decided to go to The Spring Kluang Station. When we reach there, we straight find table number 8 and sit still over there confidently. We ordered one coffee and one cham. Drinking while searching. Table got hole inside. We hardly see through it. So I used my hp to take video through the hole. In the meantime, we saw 3 people out there staring at us. If not mistaken was two gals and a boy. They stared at us but don’t talking about what out there. I saw them playing with coin some more. Just like trying to throw the coin and decide doing something. But then we still continue to search. Checking under the table, under the chair. Nothing there.

When we tried to give up, here came another guy. He said “Are you bloggers?”
He (Edwin Lay) was one of the treasure hunters as well. He wanted to check as well. Later he asked the shop owner whether he knew anyone put the box there or not. The owner said “Not sure”. We tried to pull up the bench. Inside all are boxes of coffee. Sigh. Nothing there.

We went back to Jalan Keretapi again. Nothing found again. What a bad day.

Then we started singing over there

Cause you had a bad day, You're taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don't know, You tell me don't lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day, You've seen what you like
And how does it feel for one more time
You had a bad day
You had a bad day
The riddle was solved the next day with the answer at 5 Loaves Café table number 8.

I blurred. How come the table suddenly got numbers? Sigh. Maybe someone really mata juling. The box flew away lo. Wait for the next day again lo. What to do…sigh..
