Run No 2214 Tong Fang Hong and Johnny Walker
Such is the stress these days identifying a run site wot hasn¡¯t been persistently oversubscribed it is taking its toll on the senior members. This week it put Johnny¡¯s partner in hospital, I know all about this it happened to me at the same time last year, our best wishes to Tong Fang Hong ¨C get well soon.
The traffic lights were out at Plentong T junction but all the usual suspects arrived on time
greeted by Johnny in his best pants and shoes. The Takraw mob was already trying to put the ball on the factory roof or destroy the air cons in the process. Other entertainment was provided by the truck drivers entering the adjacent factory with added difficulty provided by our member¡¯s illegal parking and locking of car keys inside the new car, I didn¡¯t get the name of this ¡®person¡¯ (read prick) but I¡¯m sure his name will be revealed in due course.
So on to the run, I¡¯m really pleased to say that the emergency hares Flintstone and Jimmy did a splendid job and doubly delighted because they will be setting my run next week. Johnny set us off up the mud bank then down through the thorns and onto the road, I began to tire already but like an exocet missile I got locked on to a cute pair of buns in black shorts running just ahead. Then alas like all the other women in my life she ran off and left me, out of sight before we got into the plantation and there must have been more than twenty Chinamen in front of me by this time, the plan wasn¡¯t working. Anyway I huffed and puffed up the hill to the first check, the front runners had already found it and were off again, now down the other side of the hill to the second check, the fit bastards had found it again and were off to the races.
Charging further downhill I managed to catch up to the mystery buns at the third check by the sungai which was still being sorted, I guessed correctly and when the on-on was called I was just behind the front runners but in the middle of the short cutters. Up another hill to the fourth check, too easy then round the corner and the factories were in sight, all downhill from here, onto the road for a 1km run in with plenty of spectators. Some nice munchies, toh foo and poppiah provided to keep the fat bastards going until the onon grub.
Circle, what circle must have been the squarest circle I¡¯ve ever seen, should have put the whole committee on ice for that. Songs lead by Moh Mun Tai, Hares and Co Hares on ice, then acting whip Handsome took over to penalize the unsuspecting for their dithering around trying to park or for having shitty shoes, Choo Choo got it for Shoo Shooing her Skudai guest away. Then some Mandarin story saw Soh Ass, Safety Boot and Johnny Walker set records for longest time on ice. One poor couple and Moh Mun Tai got it for some obscure reason followed by Rotiman and Johnny just for being there. I stopped recording by this time but distinctly remember the GM admitting to having followed three men around off paper, she¡¯s some gal our GM. I don¡¯t know how many did the run but I counted 59 in the circle plus Ironman at the wagon makes an even sixty (60).
Circle closed and the members like the start of an old Le Mans race sprinted to their cars for Whacky Races on down to Taman Molek at another new found eatery, well it was new to me.
The grub was delicious and complimented by two free bottles of beer per table, somehow we got three so I said to hell with the cholesterol and high sugar and a good night was had by all.
