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.

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.

End of Day 1 JITH 2012
To be continued

Tuesday, June 19, 2012


Tanggal 16 June 2012, hari yang takkan kulupakan dalam diari hidupku… hari yang telah meragut sebahagian daripada kegembiraan dan kebahagianku… bunyi macam serius jerk kan tapi tulah hakikat nye yang berlaku kat aku, ambil masa 2 hari juga lah untuk aku lalu makan & 3 hari juga nak lupakan apa yang berlaku adalah kenyataan. Sekarang aku pasrah jelah nak wat camne kan, dah hilang, walaupun bukan 100% kelalaian aku tapi aku rase lately banyak sangat barang yang aku sayang hilang, Ya Allah, adakah ini dugaan yang kau nak tunjukkan kepada hamba mu yang lemah & leka ini. Sekarang aku cuma nak cari kat mana silap nye.

Kronology tragedy 16 June 2012, Saturday

6.45 a.m – Sampai & parking betul-betul kat depan kakigym. Kalau orang keluar masuk, confirm lah boleh nampak aku punye keter. Kedua-dua belah side aku memang takde keter. Yang ade  pun Cuma selang satu on my right side.

6.55 a.m – call Sya (member  kakigym) yang dah janji nak sampai 6.45 a.m tapi lambat juga. So, aku masih ingat lagi masa tu aku tengah cakap lagi dengan Sya. Dia org ckp nak dah nak sampai dah… tup tup by the time aku letak or end the conversation, keter Mariam pun sampai park betul2 kat sebelah keter aku. Dan seingat aku, lepas letak je phone dalam porch baldu hitam aku yang turut berisi I.C & cash RM50… aku pun amek beg gym aku and masuk keter Mariam... tanpa menyedari  atau lebih tepat lagi kedengaran benda jatuh dari aku. Masa tu xdelah rushing sangat pon. Aku masih tak menyedari apa yang berlaku. Dan ketika itu juga, sempat lagi aku lihat Habib, trainer kakigym baru nak buka pintu kakigym… dia pun perasan kami kat situ.

7.20 a.m – Sampai Stadium kajang parking lot before keluar keter… Opps aku perasan yang porch aku takde dengan aku. Dalam hati takkan lah aku ter tinggal dalam keter kot, rasa rasa macam dah masuk kan dalam beg gym aku. So, nak sedap kan hati, aku rase memang terdrop lah kot dalah keter. Tapi dalam hati still rasa tak senang lagi memikirkan kalu aku letak kt seat sebelah boleh jadi orang pecah keter… masa tu macam2 negative thinking yang datang. Aku akui memang pernah tertinggal pun (tapi jarang sangat). Tapi aku habis kan juga lah larian aku dengan hati yang berbelah bagi.

8.30 a.m – Larian tamat tapi macam biasa lah kena tunggu yang lain sampai dulu bau gerak balik.

9.00 a.m – Balik. Sempat suruh sya buat calling to my number, ade bunyi meaning adelah kat dalam keter tu (ayat nak sedap kan hati).

9.20 a.m – Singgah breakfast dulu. Pastu baru balik.

9.50 a.m – Sampai kat depan kakigym, tekan alarm… cari porch aku dulu. Sah memang takde dalam keter. Nak kata kena pecah tak  mungkin sebab takde tanda2 kena pecah or kalu x mesti benda lain hilang juga. Tak puas hati aku cari keliling area situ, bawah keter orang, dalam keter orang yang dekat2 pun aku jengah juga. Longkang, tong sampah & everywhere… memang takde.

10.00 am – aku balik umah cari backup phone nak search aku punye phone. Pastu aku gerak g umah Mariam, kot2 terdrop dalam keter makcik tu... walaupun dah cai pagi tadi. Takde juga. 
10.30 a.m – ke tempat kejadian semula, cari balik & minta staff kakiggym tolong carikan juga. Habib yang menjadi saksi kami pagi tu juga, tak perasan apa-apa pun. Masa tu aku dah macam nak putus harapan, rasa macam dunia ni gelap gelita je.

11.30 a.m – aku bergerak ke balai polis kajang with Mariam nak wat report sebab melibat kan IC & Hphone aku kan. Polis pun tak boleh buat apa2 masa tu, dia cakap tunjuk je kat celcom report polis pastu dapat simcard baru. Kawan aku cakap, polis boleh je nak tolong trace phone no. ko tu tapi tulah, kena lah kenal dgn orang dalam kalu nak buat macam tu (case2 mcm ni, priority utk kes jenayah je slalu).. and dikenakan bayaran juga tak salah aku.

12.15 p.m – Aku ke celcom service center kat Sg Chua, minta tolong block call out (kot2 dia org bleh pecah masuk lock code aku kan). Celcom pun tak boleh buat apa-apa yea. Walaupun aku beli kat Blue Cube, warranty hanya cover kalu rosak je yea. Minta tolong nak search kan Iphone aku pun susah… cakap tu semua  kena buat kat Apple service center. Errkkk… dia orang ni memang tak membantu lansung. So, kalu Hilang, pecah or kelalaian sendiri… sila tanggung sendiri OK.  Aku minta tukar simcard baru and suruh dia activate kan 6 jam selepas itu. Sebab aku still nak carik lagi phone aku tu.

12.50 p.m – Lepas hantar Mariam balik, aku pun balik dengan hati yang lara

1.00 p.m - Sampai rumah, terus masuk bilik, aku buka laptop sendiri dan try guna Seacrh My Iphone Apps @ Icloud. Boleh guna tapi tak dapat find plak (Aku assume Iphone aku telah di OFF kan). Kalu OFF memang tak dapat detectlah. Aku try juga tepon budak2 yang pakai I-phone sorang pun tak pick-up, nasib baik sangkut kat Kay, minta tolong dia juga search kan. Same thing also happened, cannot be found. Anyway , thanks Kay. So, I guest memang takde rezeki aku lah... redha jelah.

My mistake kat sini. Aku patut find My Iphone tu before aku keluar balik cari porch aku tu sebab time tu phone still ringing. So, that aku boleh trace lokasi dia in detail.Tapi tengah serabut kan, semua pon tak boleh nak fikir masa tu. Dan aku rase paling penting kat sini, patut nye at the first place, bila aku sedar porch aku takde dalam beg gym dan dalam keter Mariam, aku patut nye kena patah balik balik kat parking depan kaki gym.

Semalam aku dah buat I.C baru sebagai ganti yang hilang. Since report polis menyatakan aku tercicir, so, pegawai JPN kat  counter cakap kena bayar kompaun RM100. Mak aiii… banyak nyer. Kalau next time hilang lagi, double up lah kompaun nye… meaning RM200. Cekik darah betul. Luckily aku bawa duit cukup-cukup jer.

Hari ni aku cuti lagi, bukan cuti sebab aku berkabung kehilangan I-phone aku tapi cuti sebab aku tak sihat. Batuk yang makin melarat sampai bengkak tekak aku doctor cakap, selsema yang tak pernah kering, badan panas & ditambah kehilangan barang yang aku sayang… sob sob sob.

Sekarang ni aku reda jelah nak wat camne, dah hilang kan. Allah tu maha kaya, setiap yang berlaku pasti ade hikmah nye.

Esok aku masuk keje balik, Insyallah. Doakan yang terbaek & wish me luck for my appraisal tomorrow. Hopefully, semua nye berjalan lancar. Ameen
