Well! After sitting in traffic on Jalan Jerudong for nearly an hour I realised I was an ASS (assuming there’d be a sign on Jalan Jerudong) and made the call to Marg and Cath who sent me off to Jalan Tutong. At 6pm, just before Sleazy Gardens, I drove past Ryvita who looked pretty fresh still, offered her a lift which she declined and found a park.
Once she and Yvette (Hash Hound) were hosed down, they joined me at a table and told me about the run. ‘Very muddy, Maria (Satu Lagi) found the first check, Boel the second, 45 minutes for the front runners’, and Ryvita said that she’d overbalanced on a log and fallen into water up to her armpits. No wonder she looked clean. Satu Lagi observed that if it’d been she who’d fallen in, she would have disappeared from view.
Just before the shout up, Cath (Legally Blonde) passed out presents to everyone, fantastic 2 bottle coolie bags, thankyou Cath.
As it was the ANZAC run, the Kiwi and Aussie flags were proudly displayed, Jan (Possum) spoke of the ANZACs and why we remember them so respectfully and gratefully. Catherine read the dedication and we observed a minute’s silence before Jan read out a moving poem. To finish off the ANZAC remembrance, the Australians and Kiwis loudly and gustily sang their respective national anthems. It’s good how the words come back.
We welcomed two guests, one German and one British and a short time later, two more emerged from the jungle with Zuriana and Irene (Sarong). We welcomed them too, one Irish, one Australian.
Announcements were: Serunai Singers and the Red Dress run.
At the end, I asked who was responsible for the shout up starting before the last runners were out of the jungle. Bad idea. The hares will be on my tail now.. omg they are so going to get me.

Wear long sleeves, lots of repellent and studded shoes as it’s slippery, thorny and mozzy infested.
