The One With What Goes Around, Comes Around 

Huaghhh. such a sleepy morning.. we slept after 2am last night, watching 2 hours Amazing Race 5 Finale.. weren't a big fan of reality TV shows, just followed since the last 5 teams.. furthermore, when u're in your third trimester of pregnancy, ur there are tendency for you to become like a bat/owl.. sleepy during the day, and fully awaken during the night.. ehehhe...

In the end it was Chip & Kim, a married parent of 3 edged pass the other two teams, Colin & Christie and Brandon & Nicole, (both dating couples), first to arrive at the final Pit Stop at Trammell Crow Park, Dallas, stepped onto the mat and won the million dollar jackpot..

What interest me the most was.. Chip, 46, an IT company owner and Kim, 44, a recruiting company owner from California are somehow not dying that much for the money (since they have a lot, I supposed) compared with the other two finalists.. Chip enjoyed tipping throughout the competition, they gladly paid 120 when others paid 100.. Up to one point at Dubai, he ran short of 10 bucks to pay for the cab fare.. luckily the driver just 'cincai kira' it.. Chip & Kim, 2 decades older than the other two teams, also displayed themselves as an icon slash role model.. they never quarrel against each other, *(although it was only the husband who got to do all except one of the roadblock tasks).. hehe.. I guess their maturity was the key factor..

As for Colin & Christie, I guessed many would dislike this couple.. Although being extremely competetive, won 1st place in 6 out of the 12 races, they (esp : the guy) were hot-headed, arrogant, mean and penny-pinching.. they nearly got jailed in Tanzania coz he refused to pay 100 dollars to their cab driver.. He insisted to pay only half of the amount. Reason : the driver drove the car without a spare type resulted them to lose their lead.. Moreover, despite deeply in love, they often argue and blame each other.. (so did Brandon & Nicole..)

Colin & Chiristie, narrowly escaped the elimination in the Philipines after being YIELDed before by Chip & Kim, did catch-up and lead in Canada, almost hours in front of their rivals.. however, major break for Chip & Kim, being the last to arrive at the airport and informed flight straight from Calgary to Dallas which booked by previous two couples were delayed for two hours.. Secretly, they booked other flight, via Denver.. Sneaky! .. (they did bump with other two couples with a devilish face.. haha..)

Well.. I wasn't sure whether their kindness or cruelty made them win.. One thing for sure they reminded me to Klaus Meine & Rudolf Schenker of the Scorpions, who put these words in their song, "What you give, you get back".. In short, it was an amazing end to the amazing team of the amazing show..

Chip remarked, "Running THE AMAZING RACE taught me that no matter what, you can't quit." Kim added, "It was our dream and our destiny and we made it." About her partner, Kim said, "I love him even more. I didn't think I could love him as much as I love him now." As a final thought, Chip added, "She cried tears of joy. That's my happiest time when she does that. It makes us even stronger to know that nothing is impossible."
ps : Additional facts, Chip finished college at the age of 38; Amazing Race 4 winners were Chip & Reichen, also a married couple.. only they are gay..
