Run 715 is the Dumpling Run in RLC

  • Run 715 is the Dumpling Run
  • June 26, 2012 Tuesday 6pm
  • In Run (RLC)
A word from the OC and hare, JM Jim Poh:

The significance of the Dumpling Run is no significance. Duan Wu Festival falls on the summer solstice This year it falls on June 23, we run on June 26. It falls  in remembrance of Qu Yuan a statesman who was exiled and  turned poet during the Warring States in 278 BCE.

He was a statesman with the Chu kingdom which formed and alliance with another warring party which he opposed and was exiled. ( Zhou dynasty) Out of despair he  committed suicide in a river and his supporters threw in rice triangles to feed him in his after life. They paddled boats out to the river to scare the fish away in hope of retrieving his body.One of the reasons for the Dragon boat Festival - also celebrated at this time.

And so is the story of the Dumpling Festival.

After a few beers,  imagine this building which was probably built at the same time of the original Hash House to be the one. Just put a few arches on the windows, stretch it a bit and you will get something like the twelve room lodging house for mak salehs!!!

Run 713 is in Gasing Playground

  • Run 713 hared by Uncle Yap and Alice
  • June 12, 2012 Tuesday 6pm
  • Gasing Playground, Section 5, PJ
On-on-on is at Restoran Fresh Fried Seafood
Jalan Riang, Taman Gembira (Happy Garden)
GPS : N 03 05.044 E 101 40.956

Chinese name is ChiewYehTianHaiSianFanThian
(or as PeterPan would say Nine moon sky sea food rice shop)
From the run-site, drive towards Jalan Gasing where you turn left at
the Chinese Temple. Drive for about one km to reach the roundabout.
Turn left towards Jalan Klang Lama (JKL) ... be careful when you reach
JKL after going up a ramp over the railway line below. There are three
forks; left and right will lead to toll-houses - the middle fork (free
of charge) will lead to JKL. Go along JKL for about 1.7km and turn off
at the OUG (Taman Overseas Union) junction and go for another one km
to a four-road traffic-lighted junction. Go straight on until the
first left-turn and you will see a green building (see picture) That
is the restaurant for the night. Park wherever convenient.
