I was truly looking forward to this race organized by KKM Perak which was supposed to be held tentatively on the 2nd of July in Taiping. I told my Matron to hand me the entry form the moment she gets her hands on it.
Tunggu punya tunggu , dah nak masuk mid June pun sepatah haram pun tak dapat lagi.
So last Friday, at a management meeting, dengan muka tak malunya I asked. What happened to Larian Kesihatan?
It's postponed to another date due to unavoidable circumstances.
Such as? I pressed.
Shrugs all around.
Then on Saturday, while reading a newspaper, I found out.
Nak buat acara Larian 1Murid 1Sukan 1Malaysia rupanya ( berrrapa banyak 1 daa)
A one mile dash involving school kids around the country. Peringkat kebangsaan will be held right here in Taiping. On the same date. Same location.
Some big shot politician will come clad in a sponsored windbreaker,trackbottom and sneakers and will shuffle/pretend to run-walk also lah.
And konon an attempt for a record apakebendantah will be made.
Ooo, padanla race kami ditolak ketepi kedebuk cam tu je.
But it got me realizing for the 2nd time. Banyak pulak race in Taiping ni ek this year.
Taiping International Marathon la.(hmmm...)
Taiping Heritage Run la.( Yay!)
Larian 1Murid 1Sukan 1Malaysia la.(ha..)
Then my Larian Kesihatan la.(bila?)
Hui. Banyak betui. For a small town.
Kinda make me proud to be a so-called runner from Taiping.
So people, come September, do come and race here ya.
It's nice, and cool in the mornings. The scenery is beautiful. The food is still cheap ( comparatively la)
And best of all, we're here!
But seriously now, jokes aside,the question is:
Can I pass as a student this 2nd July?
