THE SENIOR CITIZENS¡¯ EVENING WALK
The haring duo MAHARAJAH and SCREWDRIVER are the two senior-most members of
our Hash with a combined age of more than 130! Coupled with the co-hares, our imported
senior Aussie YOGI BEAR and the ¡®now-back-in-service¡¯ AJINOMOTO, it was indeed a
geriatric affair! The run-site at the arse-end of PELANGI INDAH is a familiar ground and
not much was expected from this oft-trodden terrain. BABA JAMES @ SCREWDRIVER
was there very early to do his duty taking the roll-call and broadcasting (don¡¯t forget, he
used to work in the BBC!) his oldies; that¡¯s about all he did, I suppose!
The run started with a stroll towards the pipeline and onto the foothills of the lofty peaks in
the background; Mongol led his tribe on a canter on the lower route to the posterior of
Puteri Park and teased the paper-adherents as they came down on the craggy path near the
quarry. At the wide gravel road paper took an abrupt left turn heading due south. Halfway
along this pebbled path the trail veered right into the thicket; this was the substance of the
run. All three checks within I was told was ferreted out by IRONMAN with the young Phua
Chu Kang (not from Singapore, but from Kulai) giving him a run for his money! In fact this
sturdy young athlete was the first to romp home in just under the hour. The home-trail
predictably came back via the new houses of JP PERDANA and then on to the silvery pipe.
The FROPs thought it was a stroll, the MROPs surmised it was just about sufficient to work
up a good thirst for the beer while the SCBs thought? Well, these bastards have no right to
venture an opinion!
Back at the beer-wagon, Screwdriver brought a pot of cereal broth courtesy of his wife
Lena, who was once our very active and vociferous ex-Harriet!; there was also a box of
mee-siam to make sure that we fill our tummies so that we eat less at the On-On!
The Circle started of course with the boring rendition (and vulgar gesticulation) of the
Swing Low and was followed by LSB belting out two hash hymns which the bemused
crowd wasn¡¯t very amused and didn¡¯t comprehend! After the Hare and the co-hares¡¯
mandatory ice-sittings and some brief commercials, the WHIP rolled into action and he
was, as in every week, the prima donna of the evening! This stand-up comic should be in
Hollywood! His antics and his hilarious impromptu translation (for the sake of Hokkiens
like Moh Mun Thai) were too bombastic for the plebeian crowd! PANG JEO took the floor
and iced a few of the naughty men who tried to get fresh with her! The scorn of a woman!
KIM-CHI proved to be a popular choice for the block and the poor gal sat until the deep
freeze almost infibulated her two-piece treasure trove!
The On-On at SAN-LOW in Taman Gaya was very well-attended and we monopolised the
whole eatery! This very hash-friendly restaurant was able to churn up some good grub and
is definitely worth our patronising; 10 per head were collected and there were more grub
and booze than the greediest glutton can consume or imbibe! KAMSIAH BABA! NANDI
