Tonight’s episode concluded everything that we all have been waiting for ages. Having travelled for more than 38,000 kilometers, visited 8 countries and 25 cities, team Philippines was finally announced as the official winner of The Amazing Race Asia (TARA) season 4. They won USD100,000.00 which equivalent to Php 4,370,000 and few prizes during the race which included USD2,000 each and a vacation package and a dinner for two at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore (worth US$5,100). Congratulation to both Richard Hardin & Richard Herrera you guys were rock. Singaporean team (Claire & Michelle) came to second and Indonesian team (Hussein & Natasha) came to fourth place.

I was hoping for Singaporean team to win this edition but unfortunately Richard and Richard have more luck than the other two group. Anyway, I’m very proud of all teams for showing their great effort and enthusiasm during the entire race especially Hussein & Natasha. They simply proven that age is not the factor of determinants whether a team can go far or not. There were times that they nearly lost their hope but they never quit and which I guess we should adapt the same philosophy in our daily life. We might encounter trouble or difficulties in our life, but do not simply give up as there are still another route we can take to solve the problem.
