First time hashing with Nusantara Hash

Category: Fun — kamaruddin @ 3:03 pm

It was 24th February 2008 round 12:00. Called by my brother-in-law asking whether we could join the run. It’s a special run since the House was celebrating its 700th run since founded in 1994.

Started leaving from Medan at 2.00 and arrive on site round 2.40. There were lots of people (~200) preparing and eating snacks (since it’s FREE food anyone!). Anyway, it was my first run and I’m amused with all the stuff offered. Free flow cold beer (YESSS!) and lemonade, variety chinese snacks, fries, miesop and barbecues. Is it a party or hash event? Who cares? Are we not entertained? (huahuaaa)
