RUN NO. 2543
DATE: 16 MAY 2017 (BLUE RUN)
SITE: AGRO PARK
HARES: SAM I AM/SUPER TROUPER
FRONT HORN: YOGI BEER       BACK HORN: ?

We pretty much knew what was in store for us tonight. Fire trail followed by jungle. 8.5km of it. Well at least we all knew how long it was so were able to make a decision on how far we wanted to go. 

Sadly for some strange reason I thought I'd do the full run, and although I was more than happy with it, my ankles begged to differ by the end of it. 

So we began on the fire trails, a few small inclines as it snaked around to the jungle. What absolutely lovely jungle it is. Lovely clear running trails, a bit of water to cross, ferny banks, sandy and grassy trails. And no big hills! Always a bonus on a longer run. I checked my google maps to see how far we had to go at one point, and although it looked like a long way it in fact wasn't. We completed the loop coming back on the road. Everyone was out by 7 I believe. Hurrah!

Our usual shout up followed, a new member - always good! Welcome to Brittany (spelling?). And a Royal hashit for our ditsy JM who had left the plates at Glamour's house last week. We had a lovely dinner of chilli and rice, as we were all definitely ready to eat by then. 

Then came the bake off judging. We had been asked to make a sweet snack with just 20g of carbs in it. A snack suitable for a person with type 1 diabetes. This is not an easy task, there's so much to take into consideration. Although my cookies were low on carbs, they had too much sugar which would cause a spike. Gin Trap's cake also followed the brief, but you would have had to have eaten a third of the cake to get the correct intake of carbs. The winning entry was Wonder Woman's muesli bar snack. I guess there's a reason she has that name!  It was another reminder of the difficulties all type 1 diabetic sufferers and their families go through each day. A simple snack is an absolute minefield. As a result of this, more money was made for the fund Jane has organised. After the run, dinner and bake off excitement, everyone was pretty much done for. Another lovely h3 evening in the tropics! And hopefully another this week. 

Without a word of a lie we can promise you hills this week. Big hills. But the views are most definitely worth it! On on

RUN NO. 2542
DATE: 9 MAY 2017
SITE: LUCKY GARDENS (BIRTHDAY RUN) ONON AT GLAMOURS
HARES: Glamour, Psycho, Readymix, LMG

The sun blazed down as the hens gathered for Glamour’s Birthday run (and of course Psycho’s). Twinkle toes gave us a clue as to the run and with that HH blew the front horn, Sam I Am the back horn and off we trekked. Gentle hills, a few scary water crossings (I do not like) and of course a huge hill which had us glowing more than usual (do hens sweat or glow?!)

A short but sweet run for most but the diehard front runners did a swift about turn on reaching the signing in board. Some went in for round two forwards and some did a reverse route run. All arrived safely out of the jungle and we moved onto to Glamour’s for the On On.

Thanks were given to the hares Glamour, Psycho, Readymix and LMG for a great run. A firsttime guest bravely downed something green in fine fashion under the watchful eye of Mum (Tracy). Olivia will hopefully join us again next week. There was a new member - Sarah Grimshaw, who’s first run was memorable due to In Too Deep’s driving into ditches drama at Serasa. Talking of whom, In Too Deep’s absence recently was explained due to her nuptials in Bali. “Love and marriage” were also in the air for Rush Hour who married Makin Bacon (the puns I shall leave to you as they are tooooo easy!) We toasted their health.

Wonder Woman asked for donations for the tombola next week, held to raise money for Type 1 diabetes and asked if they could be wrapped to increase the element of surprise. Sam I Am (that would be me) attempted to explain the “bake a cake with 20g of carbs per portion” competition. Thankfully Alison stepped in and gave much clearer instructions and Sarah pointed out that Google is helpful. (How did we manage pre-google?!) And then onto the stars of the night, Glamour and Psycho. A delicious looking cake was produced and a rousing Happy Birthday sang by one and all.

The JMs congratulated Duchess of Cambridge, Super Trooper, Edna, Hash Hound, Sam I Am and the Recruiter for taking part in the BIM races in KK at the weekend and hash shit went to Sian Yew for a phone ringing incident during the shout out. We were then invited for scrummy food with a delicious dessert of banoffee pie. Glamour held her birthday raffle and each member was called to collect a fabulous prize. A group birthday photo with us showing our lovely gifts and singing Happy Birthday to Glamour rounded off a great birthday run. Next week’s run is at Agro farm. Looking forward to the cake competition. Please bring a chair and some $$ for the tombola and cakes.

….. Big clouds threatening to release their load on us from the start. At 5:15pm, front horn Hash Hound blew the horn to set the hens off. A slight confusion before entering the jungle with extra paper leading a different way but thankfully with information given in advance by the hares that entrance to the jungle was in front of the Laos embassy helped clear everything up.

Into the jungle with new trails and views in sight as we’re brought through rarely used trails on H3. The new campsite came into view with first check being called. Itchy feet found the on on paper in little to no time and off we went up crazy hill 1! Not a diplo run if there ain’t crazy hills! Up, up, up and a little down then more up up up up again to second check which was trickier but found by Yogibeer (or so I think based on the voice of On On On Paper!)

We were gifted with not just the minimum of 2 BUT 3 checks! Footloose found the on on paper for th 3rd check and not long after, we were out of the jungle, finding ourselves at the bottom of the hill of the main road. Follow the tarmac back to site with all hens out before dark! Winds started to pick up as the dark clouds rolled in. JMs started shout out and through shout out the rains poured in hard. Down down for the hares and an award for hare Alison with her 1200 runs mark. (She started hashing in 1987!) with stories of her a similar run; rain, floods and cars submerged in water..

Also an announcement by the I’ve done ‘1200 runs’ hen in prep for the upcoming run by Sam I Am ## taken from Sam I Am’s post Hello there all you baking fans. There's a cake bake off at the 16th May hash following the huge success and deliciousness of the last bake competition. Same rules apply ($5 to enter and a cash prize for the winner) BUT with one difference.... each slice can only have 20g of carbs. Alison is a master of all things carb like and is happy to help. It is a challenge. But given the quality of bakers at H3 I'm looking forward to tasting. * It's 20g of carbs because that's the amount calculated for a snack for those with type 1 diabetes. Size of the actual slice is not important. It's the yum factor! ##

Next week’s run is at Lucky Gardens and on on at Glamour’s so bring a chair as we celebrate the birthdays of Glamour and Psycho! (actual day peeps!!)

What to write about the run when one doesn't walk it? One goes in the day after to see what the complains of hills was like. I personally always love mentiri for its hills we have a hatelove relationship and believe me it was much more love when I was still pulled up by my four legged friend than on my own energy. So in my imagination, and its large I could hear some moan and groan from the day before, some slip and slides here and there and loads of On-On called. I unlike yourselves had the pleasure of running though all the checks without checking or laying paper through....the perks of work cutting into your hash plans but not the morning after. Oh but was told to say LMG found all the checks, so here goes!

Than the actual run, last Tuesday wasn't it. Very British all those flags and the tea cups, being Dutch we don't do tea that's for those on the other side of the NorthSea we rather drink coffee. However that said these cups of "tea" were rather pleasantly liked by all hens including myself. What was less pleasant or may I say eyeball rolling experience was the pool dip. Sorry ladies can't help but notice some of us clearly haven't been educated well by our mums. Sports underwear helps us to protect our feminine rounding and keep them into place...some "hash knickers" just need a sporty change up and let's not recall the talk about the color or what dirt stains look like when one chooses the wrong ones......food for thought perhaps.

May I say I seriously enjoyed the Bond HashBond entertainment done by our British Comedians subgroup, splendid ladies! And as always a shoutout to our very Hash own Diplomatic British Hash House with pool....not to mention the bathing suits that perhaps were a bit too "posh" for the occasion....thank you Rachel for lending us your fabulous establishment! Next weeks run is from the other side of the NothSea as we can't stay too far away from our neighbors, Dutch Kings Day run. Orange is the Dutch Royalty color and therefore we ask you to wear it with pride. If you really don't want to go our and shop for anything orange than perhaps the countries flag colors which are not that different from last weeks, just don't cross them over! It will be a medium long run at diplo so of course a hill and what else you may expect of diplo. See you all there. On-On HH & IB

SITE: LUCKEN GARDENS - TAMIL NEW YEAR
HARES: Led Astray, Pedigree Pup, Rush Hour, Siaw Yan

It was hot and sticky as lots of hens gathered at lucky gardens and that was before we even set off into the jungle. With so many front runners injured there was a moment where it looked like there would be no front horn until Footloose stepped up to the job. With Alice in Wonderland ready as back horn we were off.

We started off up through the quarry and that way into the jungle which was a nice change. The first check proved tricky but was eventually found by Sambuca. There was an optional (that maybe wasn’t supposed to be optional) loop to increase the distance by a good 1.5-2km with two further checks and well done to all who did that.

Back at Pedigree Pup’s pad a delicious punch awaited us to bring in Tamil New Year and some very beautiful saris started appearing as well as a bindi for everyone which Survivor aptly applied to all our foreheads.

We welcomed a new member, Lei, who has been in Brunei for a long time and is now ready to hash! Welcome Lei. A delicious array of curries with rice, Chappatis and papadums then followed. A truly delicious treat.

Next week is the annual British run! The run is at Mentiri waterfalls and the shout up and celebrations will be at Rachel Fielding’s house.

There’s so much to celebrate; St. George’s day, HRH the Queen’s birthday and her Sapphire Jubilee! Queen Elizabeth II is the first ever British Monarch to reach 65 years on the throne. She overtook Queen Victoria’s (her great great grandmother) record reign of nearly 64 years back in 2015 and on 6th February completed her 65th year as a reigning monarch. Remarkable! We’ll have a delicious well known British aperitif for everyone to enjoy followed by a delectable High Tea and some of the high quality, well-rehearsed entertainment you have come to expect from the Ladies Hash :-D Please wear anything Union Jack themed you may have, or blue, white and red for the OnOn.

Bring swimmers if you fancy a dip and do bring a chair. There will be an exciting photo opportunity with a VVVIP too, so make sure you set your hair and wear your pearls. It’s not one to miss! Tally-ho!

RUN NO. 2537
DATE: 4 APR 2017
SITE: DIPLO (RED DRESS RUN)
HARES: MISMANAGEMENT

The run started at exactly 5.15pm at Diplo hills. Several Men have joined this run as it is for a good cause. Leading the run at front horn was Ready Mix with a new and powerful horn followed by Never Wrong who assisted at back horn. The trail had lots of small routes and oh boy, the first check was so tricky that front runners did not manage to find it. DOC explored the hilly slopes away from the misleading check paper where she found the trail that connected the run. Paper was laid through. During the run, were lots of tricky sharp turns which runners would miss if they weren't paying attention.

There was mud, water crossings as well as steep hills making it a well rounded hash run. Upon exit, the committee JMs welcomed us with an after run "concoction" where all of us had one or two. Runners ( both men and women) went to change into glamorous red dresses to celebrate at the On-On where there were lots lucky draw prizes and food plus music.

Our dear Hasher Geri Reid was also named during this event - from hereon, she will be known as "Under the Radar". Additionally the winners of the red dress run were OverThis in third place , Sticky Fingers in second and Stingy Brothel in first -many thanks to his magnificently skanky wig! Lol! other hashers such as Sarah, Wonder Woman got a mention for their attires and received some sponsorship gifts from yellow pages.

Next week's run will be the Tamil New year run at Lucky Gardens. Hashers are *more than welcome* to come in their Indian attire for he On-on. Don't forget your chairs and learning to say " Puthandu Vazthukal" won't harm you either. Led Astray, Pedigree Pup, Rush Hour, Siaw Yan

A larger than expected crowd for the school holidays! Psycho called the hens to order with a sweet message from the hares, Short run.. SO short that there was no check! Groans and whines from a few *cough* Mean Machine *cough* (Welcome back!).

Then it was into the jungle through relay hill and coming quickly into sight of the party ground. Following the river, turning back round to be greeted by butterfly tree, Bill’s ridge and out! In and out of the jungle by 6 for most despite a number of hens going back in for round 2.

Under the tent with rain threatening to pour We thanked the hens for the run and the homemade Laksa speciality of Sweet F.A. We welcomed 2 first time guests. Auntie Lesley who is in Brunei for the nuptials of Rush Hour & Making Bacon. Alexis who is a trumpugee and is in Brunei as a teacher. We welcomed back Mean Machine as a returning hasher. Here for a holiday. Missing the jungle. Buttwhat celebrated 50runs with a potty. March babies celebrated with a cake to share. Next week run is red dress run. Wear red. Wear a dress.

HARES: NEVER WRONG/SARAH C/DOC

Checking with my co-hare before the run,  so as not to be burdened with the run report as I always seem to be the one writing up, was disappointed with the reply - sorry not coming to run as have work...DADAP CANT DO TODAY..LAST MINUTE I HAVE A DRY RUN WITH PECHAKUCHA AT 7PM AND VISITORS AT 5PM - TODAY I HAVE 2 PRESENTATION, 2 UBD VISITS, 1 CHECK IN N 1 DRY RUN"   la la la......  

A small group of hens had gathered and we were told it would be a short run at 2km and front runners could go round again if they so wished - at least two did.

Good old Dadap did not disappoint and certainly a new site for many hares.  For the oldies its been a while since we were there so it was good to have the shout up on site rather than driving off to Never Wrongs or Sarah's.

The start off to the right up the hill into the jungle was a good warm up to keep the heart pumping.  Front horn Ryvita was no where to be seen and Rachael took on the back horn.  A few river crossings kept our heels cool and a few waterfalls kept the scenery  interesting.  A bit soft underfoot with the overnight rains we have been having but we soon popped out of the lollipop in around 35 minutes.

Shout up was done and wrapped up before the sun was down. No hashit was given and the hares gave us chicken with a selection of salads with bread rolls to be filled. Thank you Duke OC for the yummy stuffing!

So another evening continued for a bit but the mosquitoes won and we were out of Dadap by 8 p.m. I was glad to be on the way home with my little carriage filled with the sign-in board, and all the signs (4 to be exact) which was required for showing the hens to site without getting lost.  Got a message from my co-hare to "HELP HER PICK UP THE SIGN" at 20.26 hours.  By then I was well on my way home........ So goes another evening in the abode on a Tuesday.  C. U. N. T.

Run will be at Diplo.

Front horn .Lara
Back horn. Neverwrong 

It was good to set off from a new site into unknown jungle.
First we set off through a path then into the jungle where we continued on through
a mixed trail of bracken and jungle for a couple of kilometres until we arrived at the edge of a cemetery and down steps where we were given the option of a long or short run.
The long run went back up the road and the walkie talkies met up with the front runners already returning.

We then disappeared back into the jungle through a lovely trail till we came out again and followed paper until we came back out onto Jalan Muara.

Two first time guests were introduced,Brittany from Chicago and Emma from Malaysia.
Hot Lips celebrated her 450th Run well Done

Sarah  received the hashit for not wearing a hash T shirt which was well taken
The hares then supplied us with delicious chilli con carne.
Thank you Hares for an enjoyable evening.
There now seems to be a new guard of stayers at the on.on

In nice and gently through the grass, then a lovely long down trail which made this hare believe that she was in fact a front runner and could keep up. Pa ha ha! Duly arrived at the very wet, very splashy first check and then found the hares had laid a back check, found by Wonder Woman. Then I realised the error of my ways as I hit a bloody great hill and nearly died! Argh! Bit of confusion about where the second check actually was [more of that later], finally found to be an even more devious double back on yourself super sneaky check later on, found by Itchy Feet.

Thank goodness for the 'pissy pants' drink that greeted us at the good old jungle bar. Best not to down it and plough on up the hideous 'relay hill' to the end unless you want to feel slightly sick is what I learnt....it was delicious though, but should be savoured more is the conclusion!

Sarah C was front horn, Never Wrong was back horn.

There was much merriment at the shout up with Psycho armed with her water gun, and both her and Ripper donning their executioner outfits to name Merrill. From now onwards she will be know as ‘Sambuca’

Several announcements were made [see announcements], among which is a call for secondary people for the roles of ‘hash flash’ and ‘hash softie’. Please see JMs if interested.

The shout up ended with the hares receiving hashit for dropping a load of paper while laying, which caused the confusion about where second check actually was.

Yummy laksa rounded off the evening nicely!

Next week’s run will have 2 options, a short (about 2.5km) and long (about 4.5km). The longer loop will be laid in orange. About 1-1.5km in the run will pass through a cemetery. If you are uncomfortable with passing through there (it is the easier and safer route), there is a steep path about 50m before it on the left hand side (or on the right if you have double backed once you get to the cemetery).

Slippy and scratchy in places, so appropriate footwear and long sleeves, trousers, socks recommended
