Public watching the challenge from outside the barrier

Since i was there, i went to take part in the public challenge and got myself a bear, which means i have to stand there and place my palm in the car for 2 hours.


  1. Can sleep or not, hand on the car?

  2. Palms on the car for 2 hours, ok or not? If not under the sun I think ok kua, but if under the sun maybe I pengsan already.. *swt*

  3. oh, an interesting event that is.. and you also took part and won yourself a very cute teddy bear!! :)

  4. Suituapui

  10. If not mistaken we did have it once in Malaysia many years ago. Display in Sungei Wang, KL. Heard about it through radio.

    Last time while I were working as an A&P, we organised a longest staying contestant in a car one year. Very interesting but high endurance competition.

  11. Wow, 2hours, that's quite long, plus is under hot sun, can imagine the surface of the car is even hotter than the usual!!!

  12. LOL! so you just wasted two hours of your life standing in front of a car ?!

  13. Rose

    If i am not wrong, they will have a challenge at the country, then choose 10 to come to Singapore for the challenge...


    Mine is nothing compare to those in the challenge, as not only the sun, but the rain...


    haha... lol...
