KLANG VALLEY 13 FEB 2011: During Chinese New Year, it is a goodwill tradition for the elderly to dish out angpows to the younger generation; so it is a befitting gesture for Uncle Chong (one of the veteran hunters around) to perform likewise this year.

‘As usual’, his red packet had ‘an unusual’ content, as those regular hunters who had celebrated the past New Year with him, had come to expect. Instead of getting packets of paper money, the recipients were presented with hunt papers, packed with ‘bunnies’!

One inevitably tends to associate this Year of Rabbit with gentleness, calmness and mercy; the traits commonly epitomized by this cute animal. However any innocent hunters who unwittingly presumed that such correlation may be extrapolated to the Uncle Chong's Rabbit Run - CNY Hunt on 13th Feb 2011, would either be as mad as a March hare, or have no inkling of the formidable reputation of Uncle Chong.

PETALING JAYA 12 FEB 2011: ‘A-ha’ may remind you of a famous band from Norway during the 1980’s, but it is also an exclamation to express the satisfaction or surprise in discovering something.

One of the greatest joys about treasure hunting is the A-ha opportunity it provides on the road; as well as during the answer presentation.

During such enlightening moments, it’s likely that either you will beam with pride for solving a toughie, or kick yourself for missing an obvious clue. Either way, you would have learned a valuable lesson and enriched yourself to become a better hunter.

Nowhere is this A-ha opportunity more vividly on display than in the recent Hunting for Meals on Wheels 2011. This is undoubtedly a hunt that showcases the qualities of a masterpiece.

PUTRAJAYA 15 JAN 2011: Back by popular demand after a hiatus of 3 years, Putrajaya Treasure Hunt 2011 - Amazing Race was definitely a not-to-be-missed event. This well-publicised hunt was aiming to pick up the excitement where it has left off in 2007; and to a great extent, it has succeeded.

The time has finally arrived that treasure hunt should be given due recognition.
The sport has come such a long way; with at least 20 years of history.

There have been attempts in the past to establish a society for treasure hunt; but none came to fruition. So the sceptics may question a recent effort on 16th Jan 2011, when more than 20 hunters gathered at Purple Antz office to discuss the formation of Treasure Hunt Society of Malaysia.

Why do we need a society for treasure hunting?” Why now?”
