A friend of mine who has been reading my comments in this blog surprised me with her suggestion this morning. She said that my comments are very entertaining and provoke one to think in "a whole new dimension" on treasure hunts like never before. She suggested that I should pack my bags and relocate to KL where I should start a new career as a Treasure Hunt Critic! Very funny!
She said she is convinced that my comments and criticisms can force many Clerks-of-Course to be extra careful with their works. I find that a little strange, because she was the second person who said that to me.
When I gave my comments on treasure hunts in the past, I did not realise that they were entertaining. In fact, some people have said that my articles are boring because I have the peculiar habit of throwing in too much unnecessary details and technicalities. It is an irony, because when I set treasure hunt questions, I am usually very economical with the number of words in them, thus resulting in short clues.
However, after thinking about it for a while, I must say that it is a bit strange that no one has ever taken up the role of the Treasure Hunt Critic in KL. I am only about 2 years old in the treasure hunt sports, so obviously I am not qualified for the post. But there are many master hunters in KLsome no longer activewho are qualified for the job. Perhaps a couple of them should seriously consider starting a blog for such purpose. I am sure there will be many issues surrounding treasure hunts as a whole that deserve comments. If there is such a blog, I will most certainly be the number one fan!
Then again, most people don't want to be the ones making troubles. They would rather keep their mouth shut and suffer in silence. I guess some things will never change, huh?
