RLC Harriers Run 833, 30 September 2014 (revised)
Hares : Wendy & Lum Seng Yip
Runsite : Bukit Kiara Condo Complex
Weather : Dry most of the time altho' there was threat of rain

This run site at Bukit Kiara has been used by us over many years and
each year, we see further development until one day, there will be no
more jungle for us to run in; such is the rapacious appetite for a
space in the air. The place now resembles either Singapore or Hong
Kong and the only view the middle towers have is yet more towers.

Tommy Chin produced some excitement when he brought a box full of lime
and lemon from his farm. Thank you Tommy.

The hares live nearby so when we were asked to run into a dead end
(locked gate) we became apprehensive ... fortunately Uncle Yap managed
to open the gate and off we went through the undulating land across
the pylons.

Then we came a cropper ... a check but no way out. Fortunately, the
principal hare (Wendy Lum, who else?) came and showed us the way. This
must be the first time in Hash history that a hare has unchecked her
own check.

We ran up and up and up until no more; then down and we were at the
foot of something ... nothing to do but continue to run up. Then we
ran down a rather steep hill and we came to a point where there was a
sign "right for normal and left for short run"

Of course, I ran to the left with Boss hot on my heels. When I clocked
in at 52 minutes, Lum Kor told me "Sorry, Uncle Yap, you are not the
first. That honour belongs to Vivian Hoi & Hoi Chee Hoi"
(of course, they got on-downed later for denying me this rare chance
to be FROP)

We came down and awaited the other runners .. Mike Kuan was first in
at 7.10pm, followed by a string of runners. This idea of having two
runs should be practised more. Our chapter has too wide a range of
running abilities (Just compare Mike Kuan with Uncle Teh or Wendy Lum
with Irene Ng). Often we see the pro's come back unsatisfied; and they
do extra laps round the run-site. So for my next run, I will also
follow this good practice of two runs and I hope others will, too.

The circle that followed was a tad dicey with the rain threatening to
pour down any minute. In the event, it was just the weather god having
a pee. "Colonel" Kumar, our chairman was on-downed for fooling the
Malaysian Immigration Department into letting him get in and out of
Thailand (Who needs you, Prima, the custodian of passport?) Our Dr Yap
and Cecilia were on-downed for holding hands romantically during part
of the run and Mike Kuan for wearing a t-shirt that has our chapter's
name as RLC Hash ... officially, it is RLC Harriers and of course many
hashers with small bladders were punished for urinating in public (do
we call them conspicuous peers?)

Dinner was at Chez Steven, one of Bangsar's better eateries. Wine
and beer and whisky followed and we all had a good time ... 
now where were Dato Allen Tan, Woon and Jenny?
You missed out on an excellent run and a good meal.

now where in heaven were the following
