RUN NO. 2257
After the excitement and jollity of Founders day last week a quieter bunch of hashers turned up at Diplo for a lovely run. All the usual, a bit of water, a small hill or two, lovely trails and scenic views as is to be expected in Diplo, our favourite hashing spot, and Sarong did us proud as she showed her virgin hares the ropes and got them trained up for laying future runs.
We had 8 guests, 4 of them first timers. Pat from Canada introduced herself to a great whoop of delight from Kim our lone Canadian. A South African and someone from the UK rounded out our cosmopolitan bunch.
The front runners started off in good form only to be seen milling in confusion as Sarong led them in at a different path, over the drain and off to the right, struggling to spot the very skinny paper. They soon got the scent and headed off toward the stream. Various methods of crossing were tried as some dainty girls tried not to get their feet wet. Some of us, we are nameless, managed to trip over our own feet not once but twice. Checks were called, yours truly not among the lucky ones to discover the on paper and set the hens in the right direction. With all the wending and weaving we only covered one small area of the pristine hashing still available to us in Diplo.
It was a nice tight hash with the hens all coming out more or less together. No one got lost no one was late out. Perfect. With all signed out the first hash of the New Year commenced.
JM’s Magic and Cheryl tizzied (not dizzied) around getting the hens in order. The hares were thanked and accepted their due rewards- water or ‘ads’. Guests were introduced, entertainment, announcements, then our ‘Survivor’ Judy was presented with a memento of her hashing years in Brunei as she will be heading off to Penang to settle in the near future. Those of us who have known Survivor Judy for the many years she has been with the ladies Hash wish her well and we will miss her tenaciousness, her pluck and fighting spirit as we have seen her take her first tentative steps after returning to Brunei after many months of fighting to survive. Her laugh, her jokes at her own expense as she struggled to do her own hash steps, Diplo being a favourite area with its paved road. The book was a marvel. Thank you Mad Margz for the compilation. Judy has extended an open invitation to anyone wishing to visit her in Penang. Possum being first on the list.
Hashits were mooted but the all important chicken being AWOL it was put off being awarded until it returns to the hashing fold. But, we JMs have long memories!
On On Magic

RUN NO. 2254
Our site last week was Lugu which I am told is the most remote location for the ladies hash.
The path was rough at times and fair to say off the beaten track, many times weaving through the roughage, and grappling up the slopes, the ground was slightly wet, but not sodden thankfully. I caught up with Hana, another fellow novice hasher and she was shocked to see a huge prick embedded in her hand!!!
A couple of cheeky water ways to venture over and through. At second check I caught up with front horn Satu Lagi (which doesn't happen very often!!) and she was less than horny with a disappointing honk!!
Both checks were found by Ryvita and her guest Anna, well done ladies!
Hardly any feet left the jungle mud free or dry, and if they did the downpour after was sure to catch up with them!!
Bound together with mud, the small group of hens huddled under the tent for the shout-up. Some of the more adventurous even managed to dress up for halloween with bin bags and all! Well done ladies – it was a challenge for some of us just to take our boots off!
Trailblazer and Pee Wee were thanked for the great run. Two first timers were introduced, welcome Anna and Wendy. There were a couple of jokes and a phone did go off but without the hashshit bucket she got away with it! And also a Happy Birthday to Trailblazer!
Thanks to the hares for the delicious tuna and chicken baguette combo, went down a treat!
