RLC Harriers Run 819
Hares : Buffalo Lee & C.K.Leong
Runsite : Bukit Beruntung
Weather : Oppressive dry weather but haze-free

Kuala Lumpur seemed to be engulfed in suffocating haze brought about
by the lack of rain for the last two weeks and so it was a pleasant
surprise as we neared the run-site in Bukit Beruntung to see clear
skies.

However, the abandoned shop lots appeared as eerie and empty as ever;
this time, even the mushroom nurseries were fenced off with black
plastic sheets. Anyone with 50K to spare for the next 20 years?
Apparently, each of the shop lots is going for that price.

Promptly at 6, GM Colonel Johan pressed the horn and the run started.
Off we went across the road into the mini-forest where we started a
gradual climb; thank goodness for gentle slopes. Soon we reached the
top and started the run down on to a stretch of road before going into
another patch of mini-jungle. 

Everywhere, we could see the ravages of forest fire, no doubt due to a
lack of rain. Even the porcine swimming pools (wet muddy holes where
wild boars wallow in) were drying up. Across the parched land, we ran
accompanied by intermitten sounds of roti horn pressed by Tommy Chin.

At last, the trial joined the familiar road and we could see the water
tanks and home. FROP was shared by Mike Kuan and Lilian Wee at exactly
an hour while the back-benchers struggled in half an hour later

A great relief as we rehydrated our thirsty bodies with Isomax,
chinchow and cold water before tucking into a good spread of munchies
and finger snacks. Thank you, those kind souls who brought them.

As usual, the circle was another fun event with ridiculous charges
like Lim Boon Hiong's first week anniversary of a good haircut. But
all were taken in good sporting and hashing spirit. People with IQ
below 40 seldom take offence.

Then it was a short ride across what looked like a ghost town to the
restaurant famed for its "poon choy" (a large composite dish full of
goodies). Two bottles of 12 year-old single malt appeared and we all
had a lovely time ... hic !
