Bulag, pipi, bingi: The Mystery Manila Edition!

It was time for another opportunity to challenge our brains with a life-sized puzzle. Ate Mary, Ate Bing, Joys, and Krishna were with me... and we chose to take on Sinister Sensorium at Mystery Manila.

In this puzzle, we were stripped off of one sense each. We had to choose among the following: hearing, sight, and speech. This concept reminded me of the three wise monkeys: see no evil, hear no evil, and speak no evil. Anyway, the game master seated us by missing sensory capacity and then chained us to our seats. The blind (Ate Mary and Joys) had to figure out how to communicate with the dumb (Krishna), who then had to use hand gestures to tell me and Ate Bing what was going on (we're deaf).

It was a challenge, requiring a lot of teamwork and nonverbal communication techniques. But at the end of the one-hour challenge, we were able to get out and solve the mystery! We didn't reach the leader boards but we did gain bragging rights for this.

A good afternoon, indeed. It was so good that we decided to debrief over souffl├ęs. Great job team!
