The 5th Humanistik Charity Run-27/07/2008

Petaling Jaya

The 5th Humanistik Charity Run was officiated by Datuk Ong Tee Keat,our Transport Minister this morning.The run was jointly organised by Yayasan Humanistik,Dharma Buddhist Uni and Nanyang Siang Pau.

The aim of this 6.5km charity run is to collect funds for the needy students so that they will be provided with better educational opportunity.

There were 7 categories in this run.There were not many serious runners probably because the participants need to collect at least rm100.00 donation to enable he/she taking part in this run.Besides that there was no medals and cash rewards offered as all contributions proceed to the charity.But the turn out was good,the attendance hit hundreds.Many elderly,students and young children turn up to support the run.

The run was flagged off at 8.00 am sharp.Luckily the weather was nice and the men open category went off first followed by the rest.Except for some minor hiccups especially short of road marshals at certain junctions,the overall run was beautifully organised.

There was a light vegetarian breakfast for everyone after the run before the prize giving ceremony.Datuk Ong gave away the 'trophies' to the winners.

Car break-ins in Taman Rakyat,Taman Sri Andalas

A spate of car break-ins happened in Taman Rakyat lately.The most recent one was last Tuesday (22/07/2008),a Proton Saga was broken into and a handset and some cash were stolen.
Prior to this incident,l was told that a suspect was caught and handed over to the authority on the previous Saturday (19/07/2008).This made me believe that the culprits work in groups of two or three.

Despite of numerous warning and reminder,some visitors still leave their valuable in their cars, thinking nobody knows where and when they hide them.

It was sighted that some suspicious men, dress smartly,parked their heavily tinted car among the unsuspecting victims.They are believed to observe their victims movement and once the owner leave,one will act as lookout while another breaks in.They are professional at work and it only take them several minutes to grab whatever valuable,and mind you,they know where to look for.

Here are some tips, hopefully they can help to prevent the break-ins.

1. Do not change your clothes in your car or nearby washroom-they are watching where you're hiding your belongings.

2. Do not leave your lap top inside your car, even in the rear boot.I was told that by using a special device,one can detect the present of lap tops.

3. If you are going there for a walk,carry along your handset.

4. Always activate your car's alarm system,do not lock your car manually i.e using key

5. Tell your friends if you see anybody looks suspicious,at least more will realize their present and able to nap the culprits if they break into cars.

6. Do not leave anything visible especially handbags or suitcases in both front or rear seats.

We welcome any suggestions to prevent crime in our only green lung in the Klang vicinity.

Insurance & Takaful Walk 2008-20/07/2008

Image Hosted by

Dataran Merdeka,Kuala Lumpur.
Only 5 KPAC members took part in this walking event which was organised by the Malaysian Insurance Institute with the assistance of FTAAA.

There wasn't any difference compared to running races,the walking racing attracted many participants.But based on my observation,regular and hardcore runners were missing from the scene.l'm not in the position to tell the differences between running and fast walking,maybe somebody out there is willing to explain.What l know is,without proper fast walking techniques,both my legs got stiff and fast tiring.And at the end of the race my legs wobbled.

The participants were treated to a vigorous warm up session by 3 fitness instructors just before the race was gunned off.The first to go was the 7 km walk for the open category for both members of MII and public at 7.30 am, followed by 5 km for the veterans 10 minutes later.

The same undulating route seems to be further than usual and many were caught running and were cautioned and warned by race officials.It was a different scenario as everybody was swinging their hips and briskly walk like ducks back from its' evening walk.

Larian Kemanusiaan Bencana Taufan NARGIS Dan Gempabumi SICHUAN-13/07/2008

It was a disappointed sight for me as a member of KPAC at this morning Nargis-Sichuan Charity Run at Taman Rakyat,Taman Sri Andalas,Klang.Besides our president,SP Wong and committee member Chua Chin Huee, only a handful of our members turned up and the rest l guess they're not interested or supportive at all.Some travel hundreds km away to take part in races but a charity run right in our own neighbourhood is neglected.What a shame!

Anyway the response to this donation drive for both disasters were very encouraging.Regulars to the park and curious visitors donated willingly for the victims.Many were caught unaware of the activity,probably lack of publicity by the organizers.Mr and Mrs Wong of Klang's Pacesetters group voluntarily help in the registration booth while our president took over the mike to convey the message in Mandarin.

The run was gunned off at 8.00am.It was announced that the distance was about 3.2km but it ended up more than 4 km.Surprisingly there was no police traffic but an ambulance instead help to man the traffic.Volunteers too were stationed at traffic lights to make sure the run was free from incidence.No trophies or medals to the winners but were treated to free drinks sponsored by 100plus,Milo and Mc'Donalds.

Later after the run,there was a simple speech by an MPK representative to thank all the donors and to those who took part.And finally, the much awaited moment, the lucky draw contest.Well the crowd was certainly eager and started to gather around the canopies area.Hampers,shoe bags and backpacks were among the lucky draw prizes.At the end l was told more than Rm1,000 was raised.

Siemens Run 2008-06/07/2008

Dataran Merdeka,Kuala Lumpur.
What really worry a slow runner like me is the allocation of medals.It is quite fair to have 150 medals up for offer in the men open category but only 100 medals in the veteran category that combined both junior and senior veteran runners!There were so many participants in this morning event even though it coincided with the Ipoh International Marathon in Perak.Maybe the recent petrol price hike prevent some runners from participating outstation races.

It took me several minutes in queue to pass the reporting card to the FTAAA officials in exchange of a ribbon.The enclosure was packed with runners and soon the race was gunned off at 7.30 am sharp.As for this year's run,it was a new route.The first half of the race was the usual undulating course and the second half was much easier,descending the Jalan Parlimen,left turning to Sogo Shopping Center and Pertama Complex and back to Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman before the finishing line at Dataran.

There were at least four water stations for runners to hydrate themselves,no complain about that for a short run.The best part of the race was the cheer leading groups comprise of youth in the Halloween costumes,the drummers,the brass band performance and cheers from public all the way to the finishing.

With my usual border line finishing,l had to keep my finger cross to win a medal.l noticed that there were so many green numbers(same category as me) in front,l decided to make a dash to the finishing line overtaking one by one in hope of winning one.As l line up to know my fate,an officer was busy giving out cards indicating the position of the runners,Albert Goh of Klang's Pacesetters group who was behind me, asked eagerly if we make it or not.Guess what,l was placed 97th-phew......

The actual distance of the race l believed was approximately 9 km only,judging from regular runners personal timing.
