RUN NO. 2513 TUNGKU 355 18 OCT 2016

RUN NO. 2513
DATE: 18 OCT 2016


It was a wet and dismal day. The days grew shorter and the dark comes sooner. Hens flocked to the hash site ready to attack the jungle. Wearing longs they braced themselves for Edward scissors hands or razor grass that grows in abundance in this part of the world. Up and down they walked looking for checks and the trail of paper that marks the way. Lest someone gets Led Astray.

Somewhere off the beaten path, two silhouettes were working hard. Digging. Digging. Digging. They were digging another hole. Nearby a mound of earth shows someone is buried there already. And they were digging another. There's always time for a Satu Lagi.
Good checks keeping both front and back together

Hens walked check after check....until they hit a third. Was it coincidence? Was it meant to be tricky?

Huddled off the beaten path... the two waited. Waiting for one to come near to check where the trail may go. But what is this? Or who is this? An old friend... could it be... Mad Marg... Perhaps there is time for a reunion of the mad, the psycho and the ripper.
Mad Marg on a flying visit.

Slowly hens move at the sound of on on paper...

They still wait... there will be one that is behind... always one

It gets dark in the jungle quite quickly.. lights get turned on to show the way.

Their patience wavering... their madness spiraling... parangs ready and thirsty for blood. Sure enough a lonely light flickering in the shadows.  hello little lady... all on your own...

Somewhere off the beaten path, two silhouettes were working hard. Digging. Digging. Digging. They were covering another hole.

Against a log, parangs dripping with blood.

In the hole, a terrified face looks on, barely breating, unable to scream, bleeding out slowly, bones cracked and broken so she could be fitted into the hole.

Watching in hysterical fear as she is being buried alive.

The two silhouettes smile.
Run report will be updated once received.
Next mismagement....

Yummy curries

The ghoul appeared to announce next weeks run.

Please bring chairs if you have one, and park sensibly...

RUN NO. 2512
DATE: 11 OCT 2016

The day all the hens were excitedly looking forward to had arrived. A nice jungle walk and "refreshments" is usually a good enough incentive but when you throw cake in the mix there is a surge in the usual attendance! All proceeds go to the Macmillan charity which the hens were more than happy to contribute to. As Kat and I approached the site, I saw a few hens making their way down the road already as I was running a little late. Few minutes were added on as we signed in and registered our cakes and gasped at the number of entries!

Knowing that the run was laid by veteran hashers to Diplo we knew we were in for a nice one. I was spurred ahead by Kat as we were already late but the slippy ground made me hesitant to go too fast. We bumped into Alison who told us to take a right at the sign if we wanted to do the whole trail as it was a lollipop so we did and saw the sign to take a short cut out but chose to do the whole trail as thought it would be short. We caught up with Rachel F, Tiger Moth and Where's Wally when they were across the stream at first check and there was a small confusion about the paper as one bit looked like an arrow but managed to go ahead.  Lots of mud, stream crossings, hills, obstacles of fallen trees, some scary cliff like paths, trippy roots, triangles/pink dipped paper (good idea) later, we passed second check and then third as darkness descended (its that time of the year!). I am informed that back horn found on on paper before front horn at the second check but not sure who else found the others. Heard they were sneaky though! We all got out safe and sound in the end. Thank you to front horn Yogi Beer and back horn Trailblazer.

Hens got changed and settled, gathering excitedly for the shout up (to be over) and dessert! They also got a chance to play and win (I won 6 prizes!!!) at the tombola and guess the number of spots on the cake. We welcomed 3 first time guests brought by Tracy, Rush Hour and Sarah/Sally/Sue/Samantha/Susan, welcomed back Downward Dog and celebrated Rachael Tan's 50 runs! Psycho announced upcoming Halloween run in 2 weeks at her crib, someone left their hash shoes at Survivor Run last Sunday (great turn out by H3), Lickity Quick needs some help for a project she's doing which requires her to write a report about a business and includes financial records (which can be changed). Ladies were reminded that Founders Day is coming up next month and 50 years of hashing the Saturday night following. As H3 is currently at about 75 members, it is encouraged that members who wish to bring guests do book their spots early as they are limited. Forms will be released next week. You have until then to check if your husbands, boyfriends, scandals, girlfriends, etc are available and children (if any) are taken care of for the night!

The winner of the "guess the number of spots on the cake" went to Squeak with a consolation prize for Sarah/Sally/Sue/Samantha/Susan (we need to give her a proper hash name soon). Then cake winners were announced starting from 2nd runner up Rachael Tan, 1st runner up Readymix and the winner Yogi Beer! Special mention needs to be given to Smurf's "sponge cake" with the hard sell reviews attached. Priority to buying cake went to those who had brought a cake as they got a free slice...I forgot about the special coffee but someone kindly gave me theirs. A cake feast indeed as we staggered home with happy bellies. Most of us  left by 8:30pm leaving the hard cores to their usual fun.

Next week's run is a site we haven't been to for a while, Spg 355-86 off Jalan Tungku. For those who have been before, you need to go through a funny triangle roundabout (ironic) to get in. Look out for the signs at the "roundabout" and the simpang to lead you to the site. Word Bird assures me she has the right map! On on

And here is the tiramisu recipe....(don't say its from me)

Separate 2 eggs and beat egg whites until stiff. Add 4 tablespoons of caster sugar to the egg yolks and beat until thick and fluffy. Add 250g of marscarpone to egg yolk mixture and beat until smooth. Fold egg whites into the yolk mixture until well incorporated.

Prepare coffee of choice (I wing it with my nespresso and just keep making black coffee and using it. Add alcohol if you wish) and dip sponge fingers into the coffee before arranging them in container of choice. Top with some of the custard mix then put on another layer of sponge fingers. Do 2 or 3 layers to your preference or container height making sure the custard mix is on top. Sprinkle with cocoa powder and leave to set in fridge for at least 3 hours.

RUN NO. 2511
DATE: 4 OCT 2016

Well, it started in the usual fashion with a punctual "meep, meep" at 5:15pm from the front horn, Lara. Off we went, with gusto because the inviting pool keenly awaited our return!

Up the hill, over the hill, down the other side and the usual left turn in off the main road. Mrs Pingu, Yogi Beer and Lara leading the way. Then, the usual right turn up the hill, but, today, only a little way up before we had to turn right in towards the jungle. Sadly, faaaaar too many walkie-talkies missed this and carried on up the hill! Definitely the biggest fail I have ever seen on the hash by hens not following paper!

Anyway, on we went on the usual trail, but in reverse, a lovely trail which led us to a waterfall. A good check kept the few front runners busy looking for sometime, but eventually, Mrs Pingu's roar could be heard.

Up we went the steep hill which carried on forever, until we met the troop heading the wrong way at about 3km in. Front runners discussed the confusion for sometime as they ran, but we were 100% confident we had led the pack the correct way.

Eventually, we popped out onto the fire trail after a good 45mins trek in the jungle. A long, beautiful run, as the sun set, to take us back home, with a very clear OUT spelt in paper and an arrow pointing down the hill to show us the way.  A great lollipop run for all (no matter which direction you did it in) and a whopping 6,7km by my tracker.

Alison and Smurf led the shout up. Where was Pee Wee? She had miraculously disappeared. We had two guests from the army, we had Rosie sworn in as a new member with her unforgettable mobile phone down her leggings, vibrating scenario! No prizes for guessing her hash handles in a few months time!

We had a hashit for not signing out (idiot!) and, followed by Siaw Yen's tasty birthday cake. In fact, it was a busy birthday week as Rush Hour and Lara were celebrating too!
That was it for another week! Until next time. On on.
So, being the delightful ladies that we are, we sang them a happy birthday!

 best if all, we had gold dresses, wigs and a dance routine from the hostesses with the mostest. Food was truly scrumptious and disappeared quickly,

RUN NO. 2510
DATE: 27 SEP 2016

So at the usual hour, the hens gathered at the sign in at the Mentiri Waterfalls. 5.15 and the horn sounded. We followed the paper in, which didn't go the usual way. It snaked around to the left and it wasn't long before we met our first hill (you'll note I'm saying FIRST hill) which was a jolly decent one at that. We kept going until we hit the ridge, which is often a relief, but not this ridge. It goes up and down all the way along and in this direction, there seemed to be many more ups than downs. Is this possible? My legs would say yes for sure. We finally came along to the swathe of jungle that has been mercilessly cut out, we crossed the track and carried on up. You see, up again! This is where the run became interesting as we ventured where haven't before. The tracks were quite uneven and we could see that the hares had spent quite a while cutting in order to open the trail up. We managed to cross a tricky little bridge before climbing up again. After a few minutes we could hear the traffic and finally we had down trail out. Just a short trot back to the sign in boards. Although a shorter distance than some runs, it more than made up for it in intensity. We all made our way back to Rachel's house (palace?) for the on on. A few hens availed themselves of the swimming facilities before the shout up commenced. No new members this week, or FTGs if I remember correctly. Horns were passed on, hares thanked, the usual. It was good to see some friendly faces back, Super Trooper, Itchy Feet, Speedy Gonzalez, we've missed you! No hashit meant we went straight to the food. Which was superb. Salad and lasagne, thank you hares! We wiled away the next couple of hours, drinks in hand, under the dark Borneo sky, a very lovely evening indeed. This week ladies, prepare yourselves for the RB Dreamgirls run. The run is at Sleazy Gardens, the full run is decent hike, almost 6km, in and out on the fire trails. Pretty decent hills but clear, wide running trails. If you don't fancy that, when you get to the waterfall, turn around and head back - this will give you 4km and misses out the last punishing hill. The choice is yours, enjoy! On on

RUN NO. 2509
DATE:  20 SEP 2016

I wasn’t strictly there myself so I am relying on the goodwill and good information provided by the lovely Hash Hound and Ryvita! They tell me the air was cool and the jungle was fresh from the rain that had just fallen. There was lots of running trail to be had which kept our front runner girlies happy!
The lovely Hash Hound herself was front horn and I believe new member Chloe was back horn.
Ryvita herself was very busy finding 3 out of the 4 checks, with the winning combo of Yogi Beer and Lara finding the second.
There was a first time guest, Ally from the U.K. [hurray—ed.] whose husband worked for CFBT, and she was brought by the Duchess of Cambridge.
Lara became a new member after hanging out with us for a few months and
deciding to join the motley crew, and Foot Loose (previously known as Tongs (renamed Footloose)  I believe) is a returning member after her year in China—welcome, welcome, welcome (back!)
Twinkletoes got hash shit for not signing in and out of the jungle, gleefully given by Rachael T who then received a lovely wet hug afterwards…
Yogi Beer had a joke, both JMs injured, a reminder about Psycho’s distinguished gentleman ride for Prostate Cancer, plus 11 Oct is Macmillan charity night, bring cakes for the cake off. Cheryl singing 14-15 October in FreshCo, see her for tickets to her last ever Brunei performance :-( and finally good wishes go to Goodnight Kiwi who has chipped her shoulder bone and will be out of the running for a while.

This week’s run is at Mentiri Waterfalls. Not too long but potentially a bit slippy in places.
On on at Rachel F’s house - Park in the main simpang
Bring swimming things and a chair if you have one
On on

RUN NO. 2508 SUBOK 309 13SEP16

RUN NO. 2508
DATE: 13 SEP 2016

JM Pee Wee in action without Smurf

A day of lateness for myself, and I have to blame it on the day itself being the first working day of the week.  Not that we are not thankful of a day off the previous day, but it does mess up the rest of the week. 
Got to site late... just as Pee Wee was trundling across the way with the refreshment esky from her pad.  Today’s run was from Psycho’s at the corner and so the entry up to the ridge was on the road rather than through some muddy patch, but I soon recognised the huge mansion complete with a dome that we used to walk by before getting to the fish pond.  Did anyone notice the solar lamps along the way to the top?
So, the climb starts, as I got to the pondok two locals enquired whether I was the last one, I replied yes, and they smiled and said to take my time, only another 20 minutes and you will be up the top, make sure you go right and not left or you will have a very long run!  I was glad to be at the top as a lovely breeze greeted me.  Quick admiration of the scenery and seems the trails are quite worn out since the last time I was there.
Took a few photos and was soon on my way again.  Kept going and being on my own thought of where checks could have been.  I was given to understand that Hash hound found first and third check with Peachi Keen find the 2nd. Subok is always a good workout and I was soon out in 54 minutes., seems a few who were also late was just a few minutes ahead of me.

It was an early shout up way before 7 p.m. and we welcomed two new members, Chloe and Kathryn.
A long queue of reminders and announcements then ensued starting with the JM regarding the Nash Hash on 2nd October in Kuala Lurah, Survivor Run organised by the Boys Hash the following Sunday, and Kids Hash on Sunday.  Cheryl invited hashers to a rock on concert  on the 14th and 15th of October at Freshco (her last performance with the Seranai Singers).
Alison spoke about an upcoming  McMillan Cake and Coffee run on 11th October and explained that it was a charity event held worldwide for the McMillan nurses who cared for cancer patients since 1975.  A cake off will be held with prizes for winners.  Ladies will be able to purchase the cakes baked., and to bring $$$ so that donations can be made. Should be fun evening at the Diplo.

Soon the entertainment started with two hashits. One to Tracey for forgetting she was the “back horn” two weeks in a row.  Rachael was dying for a hashit so she could give it to some one else, so she was duly given one for her sister who was on the phone last week during the shout up.  Beware not to be Rachael’s target as I am sure she will be vicious and mean.  Both hashits was well taken.
Next week’s run at Lucky Gardens will not have as harsh a hill as Subok, and run will start from Pedigree Pup’s house.  Please bring your own chairs (if you own one) and park on the main simpang.

Please bring a chair (if you own one) and park on the main Simpang.

RUN NO. 2507
DATE: 6 SEP 2016
More than we expected gathered at one of our favourite, although seldom used, sites - Rapier Range. Tracy Lee was almost in trouble from the start fearing she had forgotten the horn, however this was not to be the case and said horn appeared. Front horn was Peachi, so she tooted at 5.15 and off we sprinted. Across the road and up the ridge line we followed paper and it wasn't long before we got our beautiful views. The slowly setting sun descending into the sea, quite a sight to behold.

Anyway, it wasn't long before first check. I would like to say it was a sneaky check as it took us ages to find the on paper. However it wasn't. It was a well laid, sensible, good old-fashioned back check. The hens checking the right way just didn't check far enough and Mrs Pingu came to the rescue going the further mile (well maybe about 20m) to find the paper. So on we went heading towards the beach. Through some gardens/orchards etc until the paper split -yellow leading out for a short run, white continuing on. This lead us through lots of burnt out forest ground, until we reached the beach. The sun was truly setting now and it was quite stunning. Thanks hares for the treat! We were led back through more gardens and orchards, and eventually came out on the road back up to the on site. 

Then did the sky decided to cry. We huddled under the tent drinking lovely cranberry and pomegranate juice made by Black Beauty with yummy snacks passed around thanks to Where’s Wally. Half the tent were in darkness, I’d say you cant even see your own finger, but god said let there be light, and we could see everyone the whole length of the tent. Unfortunately no hashshit was given (somebody left shoes *cough* and socks *cough* as well as 2 umbrellas made its way into the lost and found box (if nobody claims them Im taking them, I don’t have enough umbrellas). There were 2 FTG, a Rose visiting from England  and (God help me I spell this correctly) Seamen Sucker who has sailed in and parked her boat at the RBYC. We have two new members hurrayyyyyy …. Sorry I wasn’t paying attention on names.

Hares with their hounds during reccee

Jokes and announcements, it was food time ….. did anyone else notice the huddled form behind the Jm’s and looking at her phone? Ehehehehehehe I smell hashshit.
So announcement ;
Nash Hash – See Pedigree Pup
Labuan Cocktoberfest – See God Knows Who
Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride for prostate cancer awareness – See Psycho
Next Weeks run is at Subok 309 at Psycho’s new den. Bring a chair just in case I don’t have enough chairs. I have a cats infestation. If you are allergic do not enter my house.
