TIPS FROM MACKHOO HUNT
KALAU BOLEH JAWAB CUBALAH

Tulip is something like a map or a direction provider. Tulip will tell you where to go and also will tell you where to find the answers of the question given.
 
Tulips are directional maps, deriving its name from its car rally origins. Just as a good map is essential to finding your way around, accurate tulips are imperative towards guiding you along the correct treasure hunt route.

We believe that the mark of a good treasure hunt lies in the challenge posed by well-set questions and clues: and never in finding your way around from badly drawn and inaccurate tulips. As such, we spare no efforts in our recces in ensuring that the distances and tulips are indicated and drawn accurately. To further aid our participants, we also put in additional landmarks, as well as remarks, to assist them in ensuring that they are going along the correct route.

Below is a sample of tulips, taken off a page of an imaginary route. Invariably, you would want to trip (pressing the button on your speedometer) zero at the start of the hunt. Now, the 'Inter' column relates to the interval distance between one tulip and another, while the 'Cum' column relates to the cumulative distance that your car would have covered at that particular juncture of the tulips. It is good practice to trip at every tulip, by the way, as to do so will minimise your margin of error. On the other hand, if you take the cumulative readings solely, your margin of error increases as your cumulative readings increase. So, play it safe and trip at every tulip, okay! 

Additional landmarks are clarified in the 'Remarks' column, as are the questions indicated, the latter being so that you know where to be looking for the answers.
