JBHHH RUN No.2121 (03-06-09)
CAPTAIN & SUSAN PUNYA NAMA, MONGOL & AJINOMOTO PUNYA SUSU
The run-site was at the Plentong Industrial Estate, at TP hashman Ah Pooi’s Central Label factory to be exact. There was a carnival atmosphere from the very outset as many guests, by special invitation from Madam Kapitan, turned up to add to the pre-run cacophony. Meanwhile the takraw tribe was having a wretched time trying to find a level spot to balance their balls; they ended up playing on the concrete driveway, risking the pain of breaking a few panes! The array of guests included some heavy-weight personages from other chapters, notably the GMs of TP, JCSC Hash, City Hash and the Grand Hazard of JB Hazards; some ancient members of JBHHH from days of yore also put a rare appearance and were bewildered by the size of the maddening crowd which is a far cry from those days.
Come 1800 hr we started the run with a stroll along the factory fencing and squeezed through a small gap onto the soggy pipe-line lawn. After leaping across a narrow stream, we found ourselves on the tarmac to the radar station; paper turned right for a short sojourn in the palms before re-crossing the selfsame tarmac to sweep into the hinterland of Ladang Plentong Kecil. The substance of the entire run was over this part. There were supposed to be three checks but the Third was abandoned after some futile forage by the checkers. The First was cracked by TP’s Speedy Sikh JAG and the Second was connected by Hazards’ Hotfoot Hakka LOW HIGH; apparently our local mob was totally outclassed! The Third check, within the unkempt palm plantation, proved to be too elusive. According to the co-hares it was only less than 100 metres away, but due the confusion of the checkers short-circuiting to the in-trail, all of them aborted the run thereafter, each blaming the other of the fiasco. At the Circle the general consensus was that Lao Chee was the culprit who caused the snafu and so he was publicly pilloried.
Back at the factory premises, the Hares have already set up a lavish Satay buffet which the famish flock wolfed down like (?), a pack of wolves of course! A flagon of toddy was on hand to wash down the cholesterol. Circle beer was selling at 3 for 10 bucks with subsidy from Captain’s Bank. In the absence of the pedigreed GM Bulldog, our vanilla-flavoured JM Icecream conducted proceedings with her mellifluous voice. For starters the Swing Low was swung by all the guests and the real action started in earnest when the acting Whip FLINTSTONE ignited his flame against the offenders, which included the visiting GMs and the fumbling co-hares. The June babies were invited to do their blow-job and in the midst of the hoo-hah, four members were ‘mugged’ for chalking up run milestones, Big Bum (400th), Kanasai (300th), Lao Chee (200th) and Curly C (100th); congrats! Circle-time spilled over until 9.25 pm when we broke up to reassemble at Fong Shen Restaurant in Molek for the grand banquet; a keg of Guinness Draft was provided for an alternative taste and in less than 20 minutes the tap ran dry; 10 per head were collected and the total was directed by Captain to be donated to charity. Thanks and God Bless! It was indeed a great party. ON-ON!
