JBHHH RUN # 2250 (23-11-2011)- Scribe No : 1
MONGOL YAP has been dubbed MONGOSAMY in order to make him eligible for the unenviable job of being the OC for this Hindraf festivity. The run-site was at the TIRAM WATER-TOWER and due floods at Desa Cemerlang creating a massive traffic snarl only a small crowd managed to squeeze through; and so the run started with a very diluted pack with very diluted quality of runners and checkers! A large tent was put up in anticipation of the on-site kenduri. The run started rather ominously with a perilous descent at the back corner of the water-tower and as we plummeted to the palms the paper brought us to the edge of the Tiram Estate main road. The handful of FROPs led by ASSASSIN HENG, IRONMAN, SEE-PAY-SONG, ANTI-CLIMAX, ONE NIGHT STAND, FLINTSTONE and LAO-CHEE sped off after the manager’s mansion and were never seen or heard. The first check was broken rather fast. This stranded One Night Stand who was left standing at the check bewildered and not knowing where to go! He claimed that the FROPs didn’t hail the on-call and didn’t connect; and so this regular front-runner became the leader of the SCB-pack which included the GM and the GPS-wielding
Money Khoo. The FROPs diverged from the check and went beyond the estate-lines and paused at the Second Check near a three-prong junction. This was where the snafu occurred; all the checkers drew a blank and embarked on a free-for-all to grope their respective way back. The paucity of paper and the paucity of checkers aggravated the situation. LAO-CHEE later claimed
that he found the connecting trail and he was the only bloke to have completed the run, much to the skepticism of the other frontrunning bastards! All said and done the run was a classified fiasco!
Back at the run-site the festivities were in full swing; it was slightly more successful than the failed trail! The finger-licking fried chicken was a popular post-run bite; together with a tin of muruku it was sure to give us a proper sore-throat! The girls helped to dole out a pair of pants; but Handsome complained that the apparel was unable to be properly buckled and his little bird kept flying out! The post-run atmosphere was like a haphazard party with the crowd all lazing within the shade of the tent. When the GM convened the Circle these coffee-shop chatters slowly and reluctantly moved their asses to the open. The cool evening was in fact perfect for circle and soon after the sing-song the GM called the OC and his co-hares as well as the Hindraf community for a general on-down. Zoo’s friend (a human not an animal!) went for the handshake-round and rattled off five names in a breath and was declared too smart to join the Hash! Whip HANDSOME was in top form and he was very sharp to catch the
offenders; COCA COLA pilloried the newcomer for belittling Hash and she ranted on with a tirade in Mandarin which was vocal and articulate and to the point! Maybe we should make her the next whip! The GM extended the Circle to well over 2120hr. Poor girl Kimchi was again singled out for ice; this ‘Sar-Tar-Chieh’ seems to be a victim of her own folly every week! Give her break! The GM rounded proceedings with a few quick prosecutions of her own. The on-site buffet was very filling indeed; but sad to say the Festival of Lights turned out to be a dim affair when the lamps dangling on the tent were only for decorative purposes! We had to make do with FLINTSTONE’s emergency illumination which he only used for his nefarious pursuits!

The actual Deepavali festival has long past behind us and hashers were looking forward to the Christmas run. According to the hares, Mongol and Jockey, they have to dragged it until now was because of the Bandung’s Pan Asia. So in true JBHHH spirits, Deepavali was celebrated like it was its eve at the run site of Ulu Tiram Water Tank. Never mind the massive jam due to a not
so Thailand style great flood near Desa Cermerlang, many still made it there by road, by air or by sea not because they wanted desperately to celebrate with their Hindu’s hashers the festival but because they already paid the damage and will not want to lose it.
The traffic jam does have its effect as fewer than 30 made it to start the run on the rain soaked ground and cool fresh air. Trail was laid with limited JBBH papers like it was a ‘save the earth paperless day’. Replacing it were stripped circular papers and disfigured trail papers from other chapter. So to conserve paper, first check was nowhere to be broke until about 1.5km away
where on! on! shout could not be heard and leaving those behind either to wandered or turning back. At second check, it was like end of the world as continue papers trail just vanished in the thin air or got washed away by the earlier downpour. So even the fast runners have to find their way back until a continuing trail suddenly reappeared. All was over before dark in about 5 km of a supposedly 7 km run.
Canopies at run site were put up to prepare for a grand Deepavali reception where porridge and fried chicken were first served with Muluku as appetizer and Turle jelly! Or gui ling gao as dessert. Daylight started to turn dark, so do inside the canopies, and the festival of light is going to be celebrated without light, blaming the traffic jam again. Thanks Flintstone and friends who came to the rescue with their emergency spot lights.
Circle started later and among those put on ice were the hare that were censored for things such as the trail papers, the unlit canopies and the ‘non matching velcro’ on the shorts pocket. A big mouth guest was put on ice for saying something daring to the wrong person, Cola. Bull dog took the floor to ice the backside of those bastards returning from Bandung with many stories to tell except ‘lao sai’. Circle did not forget to wish Indomie, Maharajah, Kanasai, Pai ma and friends a very happy Deepavali. Circle ended and reception started with great Indian food buffet and satay. Delicious but too abundance, so ended up ‘ta pao’ home by Lao Cha Bo’s. Bo Chia Lan and his beer bastards also stay back to finish up the beer as unlike the food, beer can only
be ‘ta pao’ in their tummies. Depavali run ended and all left living behind the canopies, chair and tables and looking forward to the next great event, the JBHHH DND where the ‘Ugly’ Flintstone is the OC.
