Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
And after a month, i’m finally sharing with you my Maze Challenge experience in Malaysia! It has been officially given the title of The Largest Maze by the Malaysia Book of Records. This adventurous and adrenaline packed event was held on the 29th & 30th November 2014 at Sepang International Circuit. We went through different kinds of obstacles and had to find our way out the 2.5m maze walls. There were about 3,200 participants over two days, vying for the grand prize worth up to RM5,000 ($1450/Php64,000). The winners of the race were judged separately for the two days, 29th November and 30th November, due to a bad storm that ruined part of the maze on late Saturday afternoon. Luckily, I was part of day 2 so we didn’t suffer as much. Haha! It was such a honour to represent Philippines and got an opportunity to be part of this big event. Thank you so much MAZE ASIA for having me! :)
After hearing good news about the storm passing during the first day, i really got excited to experience it myself! Gratefully, the weather was cooperating with us well :)
As you can see it was getting competitive..
So Laureen, Kryz and I decided to stretch and prepare ourselves too :P (To tell you the truth only one of us was, can you guess who? :P Hi Kryz! Hahaha!)
As the signal rang, our adrenaline ran as well. Hahaha!
To start of the race, our first challenge involved crawling under water sprinkles!
As I saw the second challenge, my heart raced up! To tell you the truth, i’m a litttttle tiny bit terrified with heights, i wanted to exit the emergency door already. HAHAHA! But thankfully, the crew were very accommodating so i got through it :) keep in mind: don’t look down, don’t look down
After the mini obstacles, here goes the most challenging part.. for me atleast. Hahaha! have you seen the movie, Harry Potter and Goblet of Fire? Wingardium leviosa! I definitely needed a helping spell to get out there. I was stuck for almost 30 minutes finding my way out :| HAHA!
After the strenuous maze, i encountered 2 more obstacles before I saw the finish line. It felt like a saw the light of life! Hahaha!
Ta-da! My medal for getting out alive? Hahaha! It was such an exhausting adventure but i would love to do it again and again. It’s nice to get out of your comfort zone once in awhile! :) Thank you MAZE ASIA for making this happen! See you in 2015? Who wants to join? :)
