The hunt for Old Klang Road.

On friday, received encrypted message as follows. Operation dubbed "Operation OLD KLANG ROAD. Objective was to rendezvous with operatives, Kim and Mel. Operatives Kim provided the following encrypted transmission:

---start message---

danau idaman


desaturn in 2 old

klang rd from

federal hway, at

1st traffic lights

turn left, go

straight 2 2nd

tlights left. It’s on the left.

---end mesage---

At about 2000 hours, we left in the *MCV Tin Can for our first waypoint, designated Waypoint Federal Highway... Skies were clear and it seemed to be a simple milk run of a mission. Few hassles along transit but nothing otherwise out ofordinary.

2030 Hours, we arrived at the first waypoint. Decrypting the transmission again, we figured to now proceed to Waypoint Old Klang Road. We followed the guided path to Old Klang road but unfortunately failed to acquire sight of the next waypoint. Had we missed a turn somewhere? We looked at the transmission again but it was clear that we are to head to Old Klang Road after waypoint Federal highway.

Past 2100 hours and we still were looking for the way to Waypoint 3: 1st traffic lights. While there are plenty of traffic lights abound we cannot find the first one which enabled a left turn. Having wasted so much time, we stopped and broke radio silence after having failed to ascertain the location of the true Old Klang Road; we actually ended up somewhere which looked more like the "New Klang Highway" instead of Old Klang Road.. Direct call made to operative Kim, whom later clarified, that we needed to past Location: Midvalley before seeking the waypoint old klang road.

Strangely, we failed to see any notes of "Midvalley" in the message. More deciphering required perhaps.

Proceeding as ordered we found our way easily enough and further communicatiosn with operative Kim revealed yet a hogher level of decryptings withing the message. As it turns out, the line which goes "...condotmn desaturn...." is decrypted as follows "... condo, tmn. desa. Turn...". such level of coding is astounding, because had the Germans used this in WW2 instead of the ENIGMA code, then no way could the Allies have deciphered the German Naval code. It simply defies all logic.

'Captain Myth' of the MCV Tin Can then predicted smooth sailing from now on as we al thought the biggest part of the message has been deciphered. Unfortunately some time near 2200 hours we failed to reach final objective: Danau Idaman.

As it turned out, we made yet another mistake in deciphering the super code. "go to 1st traffic light turn left, go straight 2 2nd tlight left" did not mean go to the first traffic light turn left and also a left at the second traffic light. It is meant to be translated as follows. "Go to the first traffic light and turn left. From there, you will see one traffic light, which you go straight pass it and another one after that, which you will make left. In short, there are 3 traffic lights in question. Yet, perhaps due to our old tech decoding system, we somehow figured it to be only 2 traffic lights, and thus was looking for danau idaman condo on the wrong road. Fortunately we were corrected again by Operative Kim. So finally we found the operative's location and proceeded next to acquire Operative Mel.

Amazingly......... there were no complications in getting to Operative Mel's location. By 2230 hours, which would've sufficed a trip to Ipoh in fact, we secured the two operatives and proceeded to the meeting point.

The only other interesting thing to note afterwards was when some weirdo came over to join us, shaking hands and all. One thought him to be a pirate (VCD seller) while I figured him to be a nut.

It turns out to be Kim's boyfriend.
