June 2007 Riddling Riddle 1 & Riddle 2

May 28, 2007

June Riddles – Themes: Food Court Hunt.

 

The answers are signs found in a typical food court. Example; nasi lemak (9 letters), mixed rice (9 letters), fresh orange juice (16 letters). To be fair general signs like lelaki (6 letters), dilarang merokok (15 letters) are not the answers. For answers that have 5 letters or less, we will not put the actual letter count but just simply (5 letters or less).

More info in Riddlist column here.

For Q&A correspondence, please mail to riddleQA@gmail.com

 

1. Normal Riddle – Representative of Peninsular school leaning about badly. (10 letters)

RIDDLE CLOSED

Answer: Nasi Kandar 

Firstly let us say ‘Thank you very much’ for all who have responded and tried the first riddle.

We must admit that the riddle is not perfect as some of you have commented but at the same time we’re encouraged by you all giving the time to try to solve and give suggestions to improve the riddle.

For the solution to the riddle, you may refer to the first comment posted by ce5nt. His ‘tembak’ hit the bull.Congratulations to you ce5nt!!!.

On the points, we still will reward ce5nt the points, although she/he didn’t send thru the mail below. Nevertheless, we would strongly encourage that for future riddles, please try not to put the possible answer/s in the comment but post the answer/s to riddleQA@gmail.com

You may comment on the blog and ask us to view your answer in the gmail.e.g. ‘I think this is the answer. Please check the mail.’

By doing this, we will know you manage to break the clue yet it will allow those that still want to attempt it, to proceed.

By all means continue to criticize the questions, suggest improvements, anything constructive. We will all certainly learn from each other’s commentsand hopefully from all these, help you and us in the actual treasure hunts.

Once again, Congratulations to ce5nt!!!

Get ready for the Killer Riddle!Cheers.

2. Killer Riddle – With empty sheets third note will break the sheet. (5 letters or less) 

RIDDLE CLOSED

Answer: Rojak 

Ok, I’m sure most of you are eagerly waiting to see what the hell answer for this killer riddle is going to be.

For those of you who are courageous enough to try, Congratulations! You managed to hit the board but not the bull.

Let us start first by stating that initially the question was set like below:
 With empty sheets third note will break this kind of sheet. (5 letters or less).
 
 
But we decide we will make it slightly difficult by not hinting kind of sheet, as this is a killer question. So, we changed it to:
 With empty sheets third note will break the sheet. (5 letters or less)
 

Let us break the sentence and look at the word/s as follows:
With = inclusion indicator
Empty sheets = SS
Third = C (Third letter in alphabets)
Note = C (Music note range from A-G)
Will Break = not anagram indicator, but literally means will solve
Sheet = Sail

The riddle can be represented by the equation below:
SS + C + C + Answer = Sail

If you can reach this stage, you are more or less there.

With a little bit(ok, a lot) of general knowledge or looking up a good encyclopedia with sails diagram or do a little research in the internet, looking at all the possible sail names.
You’ll eventually come across a sail by the name of ‘Crossjack’.
 
Now, can you spot the local delicacy in that name?

The equation above can be rewritten as

Answer
= Sail – SS – C – C.
= Crossjack – SS – C – C
= Rojak
 
Crossjack is a kind of sail found in the mizzenmast of a ship. Further reference on the kind of sails/sheets are found in:
http://www.answers.com/topic/sail-canvas-canvass-sheet    
 
 
As this is the maiden killer question and the month  when Pirates of the Carribean 3 is still hot, we’ve tried to instill some general knowledge elements relating to sails. It is hoped that you’ve picked up some new and valuable knowledge/word/lesson from this riddle.

3. Normal Riddle – Clue 3. ( letters)

Riddle opens from 15 Jun, Fri 7.00 pm to 21 Jun, Thu 7.00 pm.

Answer:

4. Normal Riddle – Clue 4. ( letters)

Our team managed to grab the 12th placing, which is considered okay, looking at the top 10s were dominated by the masters and regulars.

One of the major issues we faced was a pretty unsightful one – we found out that the road safety question sheet was missing. Panicked for a moment there and ended up calling Zahrol. He agreed to give us another sheet of the road safety question. Thanks a lot, else we’ll still be in panic-mode.

                  

More updates to come… stay tuned.

Riddle Raiders results and highlights

We took the 8th placing this time, not too good, not too bad. Got ourselves a mini hamper, but it ended up Joshua was taking everything back home, cause no one were interested in the hamper. Was that hamper that bad? But the girls were lucky this time, as there were complimentary Johnson & Johnson items for them.

One of the members would be killing us, but this is worth a mention- either for lesson learnt, or for laughters. We were attempting Q28, which is around 3 kms from Q23 and the team member suddenly asked “Anyone still remember the answer for Q23? I jot down wrongly“. We ended up doing a big u-turn, but heck, that was an easy 3 pointer. If we don’t go back for it, it’s 3 points loss for the team. (Note: The criminal person mentioned above who’s reading this, please don’t kill me for this. Let’s laugh at our mistake and never commit it again 🙂 )
