Club-drinking harriers with a serious running problem. Running 6pm Tuesdays.
Scribe report by Uncle Yap:RLC Harriers Run 817Hares : Michael Kuan & BossRunsite : Pantai Hill Park, Bangsar SelatanWeather : Gorgeous dry weather after the torrential rain in themorningWhen the hashers gathered rather early for the run, they were told anominous piece of information - two runs, one long and one short,set/mastermind by Mother Hashers. Others admired the new four-wheeledvehicle of Tambi Chai whose all-terrain wheels alone cost more than10K. The blue jungle basher stood handsomely new.The trail started off behind the fence on top of the hill and down wewent a steep slope, only to have to climb up another steep slope. Thisprocess was repeated three times and then we saw the sign pointinglong runners to yet another 3 or 4 hills while the short runners soonsaw, in the skyline, the condo building in progress and home to anearly shower. FROP 45 minutes by Tim Moey, followed by Uncle Yap twominutes later.In the meantime, the masochist hashers went off merrily through allthe seven hills of Romes, including the infamous Telekoms Tower andIndian Temple (remember some hashers like May Chang & Raymondliterally crawling up that slope some years ago and soon after, gaveup hashing altogether?) The front runners were toying with whom tomake the FROP, won finally by Playboy Choo in 80 minutes after somedevious manoeuvring by Arthur Hoi and Lilian Wee.The long runner trickled in one by one until Tommy Chin, the JM whostarted off the run was the only one missing. Many anxious minuteslater, he came back on a RM10 motor-bike ride. Apparently, he hadstrayed off into the wilds of Pantai Dalam.The Circle was another hilarious affair with charges andcounter-charges. Bala was called up for making a sexist remark "Jenny,your nuts are delicious" after being given some groundnuts by thatgenerous banana lady who also supplied nasi lemak to complement theroast duck by Wong Fook Loy and the usual fish cake and oink-oink ear.Dinner was at a Chinese restaurant in Padang Merbok ... that site nowcleared for development but still awaiting approval before anyconstruction. Hokkien mee with chee-yow-char and watt tan yinyongkway-teow beehoon fed the hungry multitude, followed by other disheswashed down with Glen Morangie, Guinness Stout, wine and other drinks.The four tables had a jolly good time and wished more could be here.
