I Won Something 'Big' in January 2011...

On 15.01.2011 (Saturday), I participated in the Maxis Om Nom Nom Race organized by Maxis and Nuffnang. Me together with Daniel, Jeff and Nini formed a team named FOOD BRIGADE. We have well preparation including discussion on strategies to win, gadgets that we need and we even allocate our individual task during the race. Other than iPhone 4, the Finder301 application and Wireless Broadband provided by Maxis, we even brought extra three laptops, three cameras, iPad, additional broadband, portable charger and touch n go in order we won't trap in long queue for paying toll.

He is giving well explanation


How to play the game? First, you are given a GPS coordinate which is quite near to the restaurant that you need to go with a life saving envelope. When you reach the place, you need to get a clue from Maxis marshal. Then, solve the clue and you will find the name of the restaurant. By the time you reach the restaurant, you need to take photos from the restaurant, interior design and the food. Last but no least, you must blog about the restaurant then only you can leave the restaurant. We need to find FIVE restaurants and reach the starting point in 7 hours time. The restaurants were Strawberry Field Cafe, Tarbush Restaurant, Sate Kajang Hj. Samuri, Thai Base Restaurant and Dancing Fish. We were second place in the first two restaurants and then we were the first to arrive from the third restaurant.

Manage to take photo with Niki before we left


We managed to win the grand prize out of 15 teams. I think previous treasure hunt experience is quite useful for this race and also corporation between team members is very important for our success. I'm going to take photo with Mickey Mouse soon. Photobucket
