JB HHH RUN No. 2170 (12th May, 2010)
CATHAY ANG AND EFF-U’S CARBON COPY RUN
It was the third consecutive week that we congregated at the BIG VALLEY RANCH in SERI ALAM; are we running out of terrains or are the hares nowadays simply too indifferent to scout and recce new areas? Despite the boring monotony, more than 80 turned up to give face to CATHAY ANG and his twin hare EFF-U. In the sultry weather the takraw-tribe was having a raucous time achieving records of sorts; their antics even caught the appreciative eye of Mian-see, who stood by, mesmerised by their deftness! Before the onslaught the Seri Alam management even sent a camera crew to take a group-shoot for publicity! Look out for it in the CNN!
Come 1800 hr the Hares flagged us of towards the lower end of the equestrian paddocks and off the motley crowd strolled, with few kiasu-bastards sprinting to the fore as if an Olympic gold-medal awaits! The run was for the most parts quite screwed-up due to the profusion of the previous weeks’ paper! Even the start, after we ventured into the sandy patch, was riddled with some confusion; the pack scattered like rats in all directions to forage for the elusive connection. In the event it was the SCBs who found the strips clinging on to some bushes and only then did the run begin in earnest. After a brief bash in the bush, paper descended onto the wide track (the Jalan Ah Fook of this estate!) and took to the right. Midway along this track the paper veered left towards the direction of the poultry farm and the durian plantation. The first two checks were easily ferreted out by our localised Yankee Moh Mun Thai; no problem indeed! According to this fleet-footed Kwailoh, after the second check the run simply was a carbon-copy of last week’s. The lazy hares unabashedly traced the same routes and brought us to the vast expanse of the dusty quarry and then followed the Seri Alam main thoroughfare to base! Most of the front steeds galloped home in a matter of 45 to 50 minutes! What an anti-climax it was! To the virile athletes upfront it was like a premature ejaculation! In any case the hares made amends by providing us with succulent watermelons and an array of kuehs to quell the hunger and thirst or perhaps to shut us up! Like all weekly runs, there are always mixed reactions, the strollers will swear it was an excellent run, the serious athletes will curse it for being just a tickle to their physical prowess; and so be it!
CIRCLE was punctuated with a load of commercials, so much so that many non-English speakers found it hard to follow the plethora of events that Itchy Kang was announcing! Perhaps next time we should insert them in the Sin Chew Jit Poh! In the absence of the Whip Jack-ass (which is becoming regular phenomenon), HANDSOME took centrestage; in fact this ex-Whip hasn’t lost his touch and he was hilarious to the core! His spontaneity in catching offenders kept the circle-proceedings rather fluid and continuous. Well done! The one-ring circus was over by 8.45 and we took a circuitous drive to FOO TOO in RINTING for the On-On. With the telecast of the Thomas Cup live, all tables were glued to the box cheering our Malaysian team against the Danes. (The final score: Malaysia won 3-2). Syabas! Ten per head was collected and there were copious amounts of the golden brew to imbibe until we become legless! Thanks for the beers but lay a better run next year! ON-ON
