JBHHH # 2202 (22-12-2010)
THE WINTER SOLSTICE RUN WITHOUT A PROPER END
The run-site was at the soggy compounds of a remote fane (福德宫) along the Pontian Road; for most of us, this is a new run-site and many missed the hidden ingress to the temple temenos even after the industrious Hares put up banners and signs way before the point; that goes to show hashers are bloody blind drivers that need re-tests!
Due to the Winter Solstice Festival (Dongzhi-冬至), the turnout was not expected to be large; but the reputation of the Hares, SOH ARSE (臀疮) and his fellow front-runner LAU-CHI (老妓) still attracted a sizable attendance. Some of the early-arrivals went straight to the altar to seek divine inspiration and mostly to beg for propitious numbers! Our Empat-ekor Towkay Handsome Law (寒酸佬) was doing a roaring business! This isolated fane now has a neighbouring Hindu Kovil and many like Dongfanghong(东方红 ) and Kimchi (金姬)were very wary and respectful not to park their jalopies in unsanctified positions lest they be accursed!
The run started innocuously behind the temple toilet; perhaps to indicate that it was going to be a shit of a run! The trail led us left into the rubber and after brief sojourn on the tapper’s track we came to the tarmac which is the road to the Orchid Valley. Paper then turned right onto the lallang-patch and veered diagonally at 11 o’clock. There were suppose to be three checks; but due to the confusion created by the many contingents of SCBs, the front-runners went helter-skelter at the Third Check; even with the chaperoning of the sweeping co-hare FLINTSTONE (火石)! Either he was doing a lousy job or the FROPs were very keh-khiang! The run really disintegrated into a snafu at this blighted third check and as the FROPs met with the many coteries of meddlesome SCBs, the co-hare persisted on leading the full-trailers back to the righteous path which some of them did; the rest just followed the sounds of Bulldozer’s (推土机) horn and negotiated a ravine and stroll home via the palm estate. A group wandered as far as the new prison and was thwarted by the high walls and the impenetrable jungles! What do you expect of the precinct of a prison? Even with the guidance of the co-hares the finishers came home well benighted; after all it was Winter Solstice, the day with the shortest daylight hours.
The hares bribed us with packets of nasi lemak and plenty of kuehs, including a big pot of Tangyuan soup to mark the festival and soon all the foibles and fumbles were sweetened in the dumpling consomme! The on-site speakers were blaring away with Christmas songs before the Circle; and after our ritual ablutions, our sweet GM-冰淇淋 called the circle to order with the warbling of Swing Low followed by a further (and more atrocious) warbling of hash hymns by LSB ( 老实碧客); the GM complained that he has lost his gusto after his long absence and put him on ice because of this frivolous reason! The WHIP again went AWOL and HANDSOME took over as the acting Whip; in fact he proved to be more hilarious and witty than the original! But Flintstone quite correctly penalised him for conducting the Circle like an MCA convention; once again LSB was singled out for public pillory for certain offences which were trumped up by his many ‘friends’! Though many departed the circle for their home festival, the small circle, as last week’s scribe poignantly noted, was more quality than quantity.
The On-On was at this wayside eatery in Kangkar Pulai called CHOO LIN (竹林)and the small place was totally dominated by our four tables; but the glare of the local hoods were indeed very intimidating! Luckily, the boss Mr. Chew-邹先生 is a kingpin in the kampong. This warong-style eatery though a bit down-market, was surprisingly able to churn up some delectable dishes! And to wash down the high cholesterol there were copious amounts of Carlsberg and also a bottle of Chivas to add on to the merriment and boost further inebriation! And all that was later generously declared FOC by the Hares! A BIG KAMSIAH; ZHU NI DONGZHI BUBU GAOSHENG; SHENGDAN PING AN; XING NIAN KUAI-LE!
