RUN NO. 2548 MCFARM 20 JUN 2017

Date: 20 June 2017
Site: Agro Park
Hares: Sarah B, Sarah C, Sharon and In Too Deep
Front Horn: Lykke    Back Horn: Never Wrong

We all arrived to see the tent had been delivered, but wasn’t standing!
Luckily, Trailblazer stayed back to supervise and it was up when we got back.

The horn sounded and we were off, with the front runners in the distance. We could turn back after first check for the short run (5.5km), or just keep on going for the long (6.5km). Speedy Gonzales found the first check and Footloose the second. The front runners did an extra
loop of the lollipop before Hash Hound realised and relaid an arrow for the rest of us to find our way out before backtracking too far.  It was a good run with everyone out safely. 

The Onon was pretty quiet, with a few away on holidays and some just not there. Hash Hound got hashit for signing in and out before she even did the run… she’s quick, but not that quick! 



We celebrated June birthdays, welcomed new member Liz (from Canada, teacher at JIS), and enjoyed a great spread.

RUN NO. 2547 MATA-MATA 13JUN2017

RUN NO. 2547
DATE: 13 JUN 2017 (MID YEAR RUN)
SITE:  Bukit Silat (Mata Mata)
HARES: Footloose, Lykke, Sarah B
FRONT HORN: In Too Deep  BACK HORN: Duchess of Cambridge




A successful Mid year committee run was enjoyed by all hashers this week. After a few problems occurred with the previous hash site, a very good decision was made to change the site and with little time and notice the hares managed to pick a new location and do another recce.
 Safe to say everyone felt a bit relieved, thankfully there was no razor grass or bees nests, just pretty views and a very well laid run.




The run was a distance of 4.5km with a variety of jungle, some never ending hills as always and a nice trail to finish. I led the way in as front horn but struggled to keep up with Yogi Beer and Artful Dodger who had beaten me to the finish line [although hash is not a competition, ladies, let’s not forget….] Duchess of Cambridge had back horn.

There was one check which was well spotted by Yogi Beer, while Artful Dodger continued downhill and crossed the bridge to find the remaining trail.

Back at the On -On we were greeted with our mid year hash gifts, the best umbrellas on the market!! All thanks to the committee.

There was a first time guest, an ISB teacher called Hannah, brought by Tracy.

Hash shit was well taken by Duchess of Cambridge, Footloose and Ripper. Duchess of Cambridge had basically asked for hash shit!(very brave of her). She had missed an application deadline for the euro hash in Vienna and so pleaded that if she could still enter she would take hash shit here in Brunei. Footloose had to take one for guest Tanya as she left her water bottle behind last week. And lastly Ripper got it for leaving her shoes and socks behind.

onon - In Too Deep

RUN NO. 2546
DATE: 6 JUN 2017
SITE: SPG 420 JLN MUARA, KG SG TILONG - GAWAI RUN
HARES: HORNBILL/TRAILBLAZER/GOODNIGHT KIWI/YOGI BEER
FRONT HORN: CHLOE    BACK HORN: SIAW YAN

With only distant rumblings of thunder, many more hens gathered this week for the Gawai run than had braved the beautiful but very soggy RR the week before. That, or like me, they were ever hopeful that Hornbill would cook her famous rendang!
Lemang to go with the Rendang


Chloe was our lovely front hor,n, while Siaw Yan brought up the rear. After a bit of confusion at the very start—are we up the hill, or down the hill, or was it up or was it down, we finally ran down the hill, along the road, and into the jungle. Now this is where I don’t have much more to report I’m afraid as I was not taking mental notes as at that point I didn’t know I was going to be doing the run report! So the run went something like this: Up—down—round a corner—up—down—round a corner (or similar, repeat).

Itchy Feet found the first check and Wonder Woman the second. I do remember getting to 3.8km on my watch and heading back into deep canopy and thinking “3.5km my arse!”. I made it 5.2km, and very enjoyable it was too! I was very pleased to be handed some rice wine after making it back up the hill from hell to Hornbill’s.

As ever, it was lovely to see her and James dressed in traditional costumes, and to savour the highlight of the hashing year for me….the rendang!

To be fair, it was very well accompanied by some very tasty chicken burgers [see recipe], rice ‘wheels’ and extremely moreish crunchy beige sticks, whose name escapes me! Next week’s run is the Mid Year run organized by the committee. There is some razor grass so it is recommended that you cover up well, and also bring mossie spray as there are lots of the little sods about!

Rain check Hashit for PeeWee & Patsy for forgetting the plates and cutlery when we were at Rapier range

RUN NO. 2545
DATE: 30 MAY 2017
SITE: RAPIER RANGE
HARES: WONDER WOMAN/TIGER MONTH/WHERES WALLY/OVER THIS/TRAILBLAZER

A small group of eager hens gathered at rapier range with the clouds looking ominous.
I have memories of running in the rain at this site before. We set off down the road and through vegetable plantations still in fine weather.

It was a interesting trail by the beach and through a tricky path then back onto a clearer path when the heavens opened.

Led astray, Jeanette and I plodded along gradually getting wetter and wetter till we were back at the vegetable plots then,thankfully found the blue out trail and were back on the road.
When we arrived back at site, Jeanette in her white t shirt could have easily won a wet t shirt competition and I was glad hash flash was not around to take my photo but I appreciated the cocktail supplied by the hares.
An even smaller number of hens braved the mud and rain for the shout up. 

The hares proudly showed off the new range of brightly coloured hash t shirts and hash shop did good business.

No first time guests this week but led astray, pedigree pup,icy bitch,where's Wally, trailblazer and tiger moth celebrated a grand total of 1050 runs between them 
There were no calls for the hash shit as we were wet enough but plates were missing.so watch out patsy and peewee. 
Thank you hares for the delicious salad and wraps
On on
Never wrong (volunteer) - Thanks!

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 LUCKY GARDENS 9 MAY 2017

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.

SITE: DIPLO
HARES: Alison, Black Beauty, Miss Goody Two Shoes

….. 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!!)

HARES: Pee Wee/Bunnygirl/Wonderwoman/Hotlips

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
