Klang Valley Food Hunt 2009

My old pal Siang Jin at, who had been at the forefront of organising the Penang Food Hunt in 2007 and 2008, is now venturing further afield by introducing the first-ever Klang Valley Food Hunt 2009. This first-of-a-kind food hunt in the Klang Valley -- goodness knows where the hunt would take the participants -- will be organised on 3 Oct 2009 while I also hear from him that the third Penang Food Hunt will take place on 13-14 Nov 2009.

I'm taking the opportunity to give his venture some air on my blog because I know that there are treasure hunt/food hunt enthusiasts visiting here. It'll be a grand occasion and I know that the turn-out will be fantastic. But in the meantime, do excuse me while I copy over some extracts from the promotional blurbs of his electronic announcement:

WHAT could be a more exciting way to enjoy Klang Valley’s multi-ethnic food heritage than a hunt that combines culinary delights with a series of thrilling activities? Klang Valley Food Hunt 2009, to be held on 3 Oct 2009, promises to tickle your gastronomic senses and pump up your adrenaline.

This year, we will have a host of new challenges to extend the food-hunting experience. Our theme “Going by Mobile” is supported by a new SMS-based location finder directory service by Maxis. Other attractions include:

  • RM20,000 worth of prizes including cash to the top 20 teams
  • Special discount of RM20 for all Maxis users, who will pay RM70 instead of RM90 as the entry fee
  • Attractive goodie bags for every participant

Registration: 6.30am
Flag off: 8.30am
Date: 3 Oct 2009 (Saturday)
Venue: National Science Centre, Bukit Kiara, Kuala Lumpur

* Limited to 120 teams
** Closing date for registration: 28 Sep 2009

Prize-giving will be held later in the evening. For ENTRY FORMS and more information, please log on to: or or call 03 5621 4818.

Thanks for the post!
Hope you'll be joining in the hunt?
It'll be aided by FInder301, a new location-based service that gives you info based on where you are.

Have a great weekend,
