RLC Harriers Run 834, 7 October 2014 
Hares : Vivian Thong & May Chang
Runsite : Vicinity of RLC
Weather : Dry 

It has been raining most evenings during this period of The Nine
Emperor Gods Festival (Cantonese: Kow Wong Yeh); so it was a great
pleasant surprise that the weather stayed dry and clear. Then we all
saw Alice Yap, all dressed up to run. No wonder it didn't rain.

Approximately at 6.00pm (apparently the RM5 IKEA clock has developed a
fault and was not put up) GM Col Johan pressed the roti horn and
passed to JM Tommy Chin and we all ran out. The trail immediately
turned left up to the break along the fence into Jalan Parliament and
we ran towards Parliament House. Then it was right towards the
junction where there was a check.

It took some time for the check to be broken as we had to cross the
road and run towards the 'jungle' behind all the government buildings.
The route then came out to the road leading to the Selangor Sultan's
KL palace and down into another 'jungle'. Then we emerged to another
road and past the Arabic School and right across the JKR Headquarters
and then through the Padang and into Jalan Parliament and home.

Pretty easy run with the FROP Lillian Wee (Mike Kuan, Wendy Lum?)
clocking in at 6.42. Thereafter, most hashers came in while the day
was still bright.

The Circle turned serious for a while when it was disclosed that the
section is running a current loss. There was much heated discussion
(see Note 1) but doused when all the proponents were hauled up for a
free beer.

Among the charges were Cecilia being hauled up for being the most
loving spouse, ministering attentively to Dr Yap with all the
prerequisites while he dressed for a run; Jennifer Kuan for spreading
rumours that the 14th China Nash Hash (see Note 2) was free and a
whole bunch of OUG members for queuing up to buy petrol last Wednesday
just before the 20 sen increase.

The hares had provided sweet pears, biscuits and other finger food
plus a good dinner at Bunga Raya, along with wine. Alas, no barley
water ... so Burns, thirsty as ever from not running, contributed a
bottle of Dewar's White Label and we all lived happily ever after.

Note 1
Many hashers like Uncle Yap are still very incensed when Lum Seng Yip
said at the last AGM that the Mismanagement has consider the RM15K
reserve built up over the years as "too high" and deliberately
overspent by 5K. Ex-GM Veloo, during whose tenure at office produced
some 5K surplus, reminded hashers that it was due primarily to Uncle
Yap buying cheap beers especially during the CNY offers. He had to
personally carry all the cases of beer from shops to Club and financed
the stock since the Club could only reimburse a limited sum each
month. To have such hard-earned surplus being frivolously frittered
away will always remain a pain.

Note 2
The 14th China Nash Hash is from 22 to 24 May 2015 in Hangzhou.
