JBHHH RUN No. 2123 (17-06-09): Hares: Cilipadi and David See
HOT LIKE CILI-PADI, BUT DAVID CANNOT SEE
The weather was indeed searing, but David See cannot see. No he isn’t blind, it’s just that in Hokkien it means David cannot die! In fact despite the scorching heat, he, together with Fuel Pump, Maochong and G-String, laid a commendable trail stretching from the SERI AUSTIN run-site to the edge of Adda Heights, Bandar Dato Onn, the posterior of Starhill Golf Club and right up to the pylons in the interior of Ladang Tebrau. It was a long and circuitous trail that was forcibly bisected by the river which has only two bridges spanning it; miss these and we have to get wet!
The run started with a stroll down the Bangla enclave where the bemused inhabitants were preparing dinner in their respective hovels with music blaring away. Upon the slippery descent to the shades of the palms paper turned left towards the edge of the housing estate and swung back to the main track, heading east until we were within sight of Adda Heights and Bandar Dato Onn. Thereafter the trail followed a riparian route following the meanders of the river; but where were we going to suffer the inevitable wade? About a quarter down the trail it happened; but the Hares were thoughtful enough to chop down a fallen tree to serve as a bridge. Balancing across however was a precarious affair, especially for some faint-hearted damsels! After this circus-act, the trail veered left into the nether regions of this vast estate and paused for another two checks, both of which were easily ferreted out by the galloping steeds upfront with consummate ease, leaving the chasing pack panting and puffing far behind .The trail finally wound its way up to the tarmac near the oxidation-pond and our cars were only a few hundred yards after the road-bridge. It was a run of above-average distance and, in the humid atmosphere, very energy-sapping. Fortunately the Hares provided us with bulging packets of tomyam mee-siam and a huge pot of bean-soup to replenish our lost carbs.
CIRCLE occupied the road-bend and was constantly interrupted by passing motorists; future hares please take note of the inappropriateness of this run-site; and to aggravate matters we have to conduct our circle under the gawking stares of the Bangla mob! They must have found us very silly! In any case the show must go on. The Whip was again up in his elements; but due a bout of gout, he limped about instead of doing his usual bouncy roly-poly rumble. The champion team of the Quad Run boat-race was honoured and the trophy was passed around to be fondled by everyone; cheers and well done JB! When the Whip adjourned court, there were no floor-takers, so much so the GM had to exercise his royal decree to force some members to take centrestage. Perhaps next time, the Whip or the GM can appoint some mystery whips in advance so that they can load their ammo and are not caught tongue-tied. The Circle Circus was over by 9 and we took a short drive to nearby Hillxuan Restaurant for the On-On which was something different from the regular fare. Excellent grub! Worth a re-visit! Thanks Cili Padi and David ‘Buay’ See for the good run and the delectable On-On
