Prominent businessman, proponent of Chinese education and regular Hasher, Foo Wan Thot recently celebrated his 75th birthday. The date was also his 45th year with HHH or Hash House Harriers Ipoh Chapter and hence it was a double celebration.
Joining him in his double celebration were 1800 runners from 51 HHH chapters throughout Malaysia and some from Thailand and Indonesia.
Among the guests present were Dato’ Seri Ahmad Husni Hanadziah, the MP for Hulu Kinta and Tambun State Assemblywoman Dato’ Rosnah Kassim.
The birthday bash which was held at the car park of the Lost World of Tambun saw the guests participate in a birthday run through the hills behind the Lost World. Wan Thot too participated though being the host his was a stroll.
The party started before 4pm for registration of the runners and carried on till late evening. The events included Dinner, Showtime, fireworks and Supper before the night was done. In true HHH tradition the beer wagon was well stocked with 100 barrels of beer and 30 barrels of Guiness draft.
Wan Thot’s family joined him on stage to cut his birthday cake after which the various HHH Chapters presented him with souvenirs.
Regular Hashers say that hashing is a very effective method of relieving stress and Foo Wan Thot at his age is testimony to that theory. On On!
