dunno if the organisers are english savvy? should try to talk to them 1st ~ehe but for this kind of situation my modus operandi is usually just shoot n run lor. but the area should be usually in HDB estates or other built up areas? then got to plan escape route in advance ^_^ . but try talk to them 1st .

GO FIGURE,,,,, guess if you are in chinese opera, you couldnt be too bright
