JB HHH RUN No. 2135 (090909)

A RUN TO APPEASE THE GOOD BROTHERS OF THE NETHERWORLD

Traditionally in the Lunar 7th month the Chinamen appease the ‘Good Brothers’ of the Netherworld so as to leave them alone and bring them good fortune! And for the fourth year in a row it is held at DONGFANGHONG’s PLENTONG LIEN HUAT FACTORY. The air of festivity was clouded by the air-pollution from the burning joss-sticks and the joss-papers; everyone was busy helping in one way or another, some were partaking of an early beer or two while the gluttons were all perched around the altar table chewing away the dukus. For once the takraw team has the luxury of an Indoor Stadium arena, but their game was in shambles due to the tight space.

While the Chinamen appeased the ghosts, the Bayee laid the run. Together with his henchman ANDY, DISCO SINGH has signed a long-term contract to lay the annual ghostly run. Expectedly the run was a walking stint of the unkempt palm plantation behind the Plentong Industrial Park. Initially we walked along the Taman with all the Rotan names; crossing the busy Masai Road, we passed the Catholic Majodi Centre and then strolled onto the pipe. An early contingent of SCBs made a bee-line for the posterior of the factories while the rest of us followed the paper across a sandy ravine. Whatever checks were all rendered redundant as the entire terrain is rather predictable; indeed the home trail hit back to the pipe and soon we found ourselves on the Majodi Road again.

After our ‘ghostly’ stroll, Coca Cola and Mian-See were hollering at the members to get their Pail of Auspicious Items and the t-shirt. Instead of the Hungry Ghosts, the Hungry Hashmen were all wolfing down the on-site buffet like as if there is no tomorrow! After satiating ourselves and washing up, the GM called proceedings to order; the normal Circle was cancelled and so after the OC TERKO LIANG’s short speech of appreciation, the much-awaited Auction of Auspicious Items started with a bang; the GM outbid everyone for the first three items and soon the bidding battles began! With the rising levels of intoxication, so rises the price of each item on offer! Disco, LSB, Handsome, Ajinomoto, One Night Stand, Lansi-Tan and the OC himself all helped to generate the heat while our bevy of beer-promoters went round to make sure that enough beer is drunk to make the bidders bolder! Two special items in aid of the Southern College were auctioned off for more thanRM7000 and the amount has to be paid in two weeks. The headmaster of the Tamil school which we donated to from last year’s proceeds, came to thank us personally. See, our good deeds have been recognised!

After the final tally by our annual ghostly book-keeper Botak Yeng, the amount raised was well over RM37000 which is about the same as last year’s. The proceedings finally came to an end at about 11 when the last item was quickly sold as by then the bidding crowd has dwindled to a handful!

So there goes another Hantu Festival ala JBHHH; A BIG HAND TO TERKO LIANG AND HIS HARD-WORKINGTEAM! MAY THE GOOD BROTHERS BLESS YOU ALL!
