It, being the GM's run the heavens was merciful. The weather was fine, hot and humid.
Not a drop of rain.
I started out quite early, not wanting to be caught in any traffic snarl and not wanting to
inadvertently take the wrong turnings when I reached the Iskandar area with its maze
of highways. Besides, I am not quite familiar with the location of the run-site. Well,
blame it on the GM lah!
Stopping over at Taman Perling for a drink of of teh tarik at a mamak restaurant. After
paying the toll fee I decided to drive at a leisurely pace, keeping a keen eye on the
road signs and any hash signs lest I end up in Tuas or Timbuktu. You got the drift?
Thankfully there wasn't any hitch and I managed to turn into an old road leading to the
run-site and the Primary school. Time: 4.20pm. Not a hash soul within sight. I drove
to the security post further on and made some enquries. A stern-looking guard eyed
me with suspicion. My conversation with the guy went something like this :-
"Hello," I greeted him. "Sini ada orang masuk buat jogging tak?"
The guard answered, "Jogging yah!"
I repeated,"You tahu jogging."
He shot back, "Jogging yoh!"
I decided to change tack, "Ada orang masuk buat lari tak?" At the same time gesturing
with both hands the motion of a runner.
The guy seems to be a nut and he replied, "Oh lali. Sini mana mana boleh lali."
Finally I resigned to the fact that he must be an alien and asked one last question.
"Ada banyak kereta masuk dalam?"
"Oh kereta, yah yah banyak kereta masuk dalam!"
He waved me on. Two hundred meters into the vast area I found out he was right literally.
"Banyak kereta dalam." Myriads of kereta or in English lorries laden with earth were
plying the landscape. Turning around I parked in front of the school and contacted GM
by phone. She replied and informed that she was still on top of the mountain and trying
to negotiate her way down with her co-hares and that the run-site was in front of the
By 5-45pm there was quite a large turn-out - members, guests and members from other
chapters. And when GM finally emerged from the leech infested jungle with her co-hares
Flintstone and Pang Leo in tow the run was about to begin. The run started along the
periphery of the mountain for as far as the eye could see and then I would presume led
upwards. What happened next and at the circle or at the on-on I plead ignorance. Not
there lah!
Plenty of finger foods and others at the beer wagon.There's sponsors galore. Long Cock
and wife came with their nasi lemak speciality, Seng Bock and wife sponsored many
different kinds of delicious nyonya kueh. And then there were yong tau foo and someone
brought in a huge container of curry puffs. Someone mentioned that each one need to tar
pau something home and the foods were good enough for both dinner and supper.
Thanks to GM and her co-hares for the mountaineering experience and for the beer and
food at the on on. Thanks also to the generous sponsors of food. By the way, how come
my run no one sponsors huh? On On!
