In fact the virgin hares decided to set the run site at the Plentong Palm Oil Estate, where we able to park our cars beside the uneven earth road or grasses pipe line reserve area. Although they are junior but when Thunder and Lighting together with Raining visited the place while they having Bak Kut Teh, immediately they changed the run site to New Plentong Industrial Area a factory lot owned by a guest called Ah Pui (Benard Lim) .
A group of Sepak Takraw team member practice on the grass field beside the factory. Hares busy to carry out his duty and Torch light Run OC busy for the registration and collection.
Around 6.0 pm briefing was given by Siang Siang Mabok before the run start. After On On shouted all the members and guest ran toward the High Tension Pylon. A distance of 2km from the starting point we noticed that certain FCB unable to climbed up an earthwork slope , some of them returned back and follow people instead of follow hares’ paper to the right way. A lot of Cow’s shit along the trail . Suddenly we saw a Big and Black Cow ran the same direction with us , luckily it didn’t hurt any one of us, but short while it already disappeared in the palm oil threes.
With the assistant of senior co-hare Flintstone the trail was not too tough, approximately of 10km with three (3) tricky checks. About 7.30pm majority of members had returned back to the site bay. The hares had prepared the finger food like a small buffet to served those hungry runners.
Its time for circle, the night slightly quite without music played. After the song ‘Swing Low’ the hares and co-hares were invited on ice with a toast of beer. The offenders Guo Siong, Ice Cream and 555 were called on ice with the charged of littering the circle areas.
Congratulation to two members who had achieved their runs record . Our Grandmaster – Bulldog achieved 600 runs , Ash Soo achieved 50 Run.
On On at Restaurant Fong Sheng , served with seven (7) tables delicious food and free two bottles of beer for each table. Many thanks to hares and co-hares for good runs, good finger tips , good makan and good beer. All the BEST to our members and Guest ‘Happy LANTERN Festival’
It is with the deepest and most profound sadness that I have to pen this few lines for my dear departed friend Benny Lim whom we affectionately call Free Beer, who passed away on the morning of 20th August, 2009, after succumbing to a heart attack. I know Benny through the Hash. This short and congenial fellow, who is always accompanied by his faithful wife Christina, is a regular on our Wednesday runs; although he will come for a stroll he always enjoyed the good fellowship and the socialising in the Hash. Benny hailed from Segamat and has many friends there; he even brought a few of his old-town chums to be guests in our Hash on many occasions. He is a man of few words but when he spoke and interjected it was always with witticism and with a good sense of humour. Benny was a scion of an illustrious Hailam family from Segamat and I have always teasingly called him ‘Hailam-Kia’ which he will accept with a broad toothy grin. We will miss his low sultry baritone voice and the times when we ‘accused’ him and Christina for partaking of more they can chew at the post-run finger food fest. Every time I bellowed at him, in jest, about his gluttony, he will reply to me in Hokkien, ‘Nerng-teh Niar!’ (Two pieces only!), and we all ended up laughing at one another and no one was hurt. I seldom or in fact have never seen or heard him shouting any expletives to anyone in anger. If at all this quiet fellow ever was angry, he never displayed it nor ever showed any ugly behavior and no one ever tasted the wrong end of his wrath. On a personal note, I have, as a lawyer, represented him on some legal matters and I found him to be reasonable, honest and sincere in all his business dealings; he was never the fastidious or what our local parlance termed the ‘ngiow’ type. To Christina we offer our heartfelt condolence; as Benny will want you to, garner strength from you grief and life goes on, for ultimately all must pass this way one day; for life is given to none freehold, but it is a lease-hold for all.
FAREWELL MY BELOVED HAILAM-KIA! REST IN PEACE. TOW KIANG
JB HHH RUN No.2136 [ 16/9/09 ] Hare : Baba & Mama Chong Runsite : Ulu Tiram Water Tank
As usual we began our run at 6.00pm. Weather was cool and nice though run distance was a litter bit short, about 6km.All completed safely quite early.
Circle started at 7:50pm. Even though our Whip was not around, all the monkeys are well behaved. Many thanks to So Big and Flinstone for job well done.
One guess King Kong was call in to sit on ice for showing of his sissy body during the run. We learn that in his younger days, he competed in Mr.Universe contest. Pundak! What so great about it, all the monkeys here has the same or even better body figure…………viewing from bottom. Our Tham Sook happily ran to the center to show off his perfect ticks and six packs or rather eight packs to King Kong. Other monkeys than follows.
During the circle, we were given a special demonstration by So Big on the dos and don’ts of doing our duty knelling down and jerking on one leg. The other leg at 90 degree. Just like yellow dog shoot urine (as Cantonese use to say). For those who don’t follow the correct technique will end up so shown by the person who was sitting on ice known as One Night Stand. DIE DIE MUST TRY!!!!
Have our ON ON in Pelangi Indah.
WITH GOOD FRIENDS, TIME FLASHES BY SO QUICK.THANK YOU.

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!
