JITH Day 1

Johor International Treasure Hunt 2012  
Saturday & Sunday, 9 & 10 June 2012
Dataran Bandaraya - Kg Parit Tengah - Tanjung Piai, Pontian

A day before…

KL-JB-Tune Hotel Danga Bay

Last week, I spend my 3 days exploring the Johor state. Not with the intention of jalan-jalan but we have more than that… hunting treasures. But this time is different from the previous hunting I joined because it was a 2D 1N hunting and it was an international event… hehehe… international lah sangat kan. Tak Nampak kat mana yang international nye… mostly Malaysian or more precisely most of the participants were malays. Maybe what they meant by international here is our neighbours… Singapore, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia & yang sewaktu dengan nye lah kot. That’s why I could not differentiate because most of the asean countries… the skin color, the looks are not much difference and the only obvious different maybe the language. So, I guest maybe adelah kot yang bawa kawan-kawan dia or maybe their maid to this event just to get the RM100 discount for the fees.
The first day, we headed at 3pm from KL to JB and it took us three hours. We stayed at Tune Hotel Danga Bay, JB. Luckily, the hotel is only 15 minutes to Dataran Bandaraya MBJB, so, takde lah rushing sangat nak ke briefing on that night. The hotel is very clean and so nice. Price also reasonable & the most important thing very comfortable even though only a small space but to me, enough just to stay one night. We paid RM58.30 (2 persons) with an add on 12 Hours Air Cond. + Towel & Free Essentials toiletries kit (RM16). To book this hotel… the procedure same like you book the flight. And if you want to get cheaper price, wait for the AA promo.
Pre-Hunt Briefing
The Pre-Hunt Briefing detail was held at Multipurpose Hall, Dataran Bandaraya MBJB, Johor Bahru between 8:00pm - 10:00pm. I didn’t go to the briefing because menemankan my OKUS friend, Cik Gojes. So, only Cik Huzz & Amy saja yang attend the briefing. So, while waiting for them, aku & Cik Gojes pun jalan-jalan pusing the nearest area finding food for tomorrow’s hunt. Yelah… Takut tak sempat nak singgah mana-mana kan nanti. So, early preparation is so important.
Around 10pm, return to Dataran Bandaraya MBJB, amek Huzz & Amy and back to our hotel. Oppss… singgah Danga bay kejap, sebab nak jumpa Kak Long Gojes dulu. Lepas pass ubat, quick chit chatting & then baru balik trus ke Hotel dengan satay yang tak dapat digambarkan kelazatan nyer. Thanks Kak Long, sampai hari ni I still remembered, that was the very delicious satay I ever tasted.

Dataran Bandaraya - Kg Parit Tengah
The next morning, we checked out at 7.30 a.m, since we need to be at Dataran JB around 8.00 a.m like that. Our car was the fourth car yang sampai. We’re provided with light breakfast & drinks. Then, ade photo session. We flagged off a bit late than we’re supposed to be… I think around 9.30 a.m juga lah… as usual waiting for the VIP to come. And sebab tunggu orang2 ni juga kami terpaksa berhujan… emmhhh. Anyway, aku rase kat mana2 event yang melibatkan orang-orang besar pun slalu macam ni, nak buat macam mana kan… you have to follow.

Seawal pagi kami dah sampai

Hanya sandwich & kuih lapis pelangi sebagai breakfast
