JBHHH RUN 2184 (HANTU RUN)
It was the run devoted to those from the other world. Tons of offering of liquors, foods, joss or ‘gold’ papers and articles of the materialistic world made of paper either burned, eat or auctioned away, supposedly will ensure prosperity and smooth sailing for all members in the year to come.
Lansi’s newly built factory was an ideal location for such occasion. It was huge, covered and with proper toilet facilities and parking area. Many arrived early to help in preparing the offering and later indulged themselves with poker cards (Bulldog and gang).
After burning of offerings, group photo were taken before run starts at 5.50 pm. As expected, it was not going to be a long run, those who shortcut hardly sweats. First check came rather fast after about a KM. After that it was a short stroll along scenic grass cultivation farm and Malay kampong where no fences are needed for its houses unlike what we are already used to. It later leads to the Seelong main road with passing trucks roaring all along. Run continue off road for a few kilometers and the last runner who came out can still see daylight.
Circle, or rather bidding started at 7.45pm. First item, the Huat Kueh (Prosperity buns) was auctioned for RM528.00. Other items were successfully auctioned off with good price tags. Mongol and Bulldog gang bid most of the liquors and Mon Man Tai had to reverse in his car to load all those items he successfully bid. Not forgetting doing charity work, cheque was presented to a representative of Ulu Tiram Estate Tamil School in a brief ceremony. JB Southern College was also one of the beneficiaries.
Last few items were quickly auctioned off as many had left and bidding starts dwindling. It’s all over just a few minutes before midnight. GM Ice Cream was seen happily announcing softly that the auction was a success, meaning bountiful of cash to come next year.
