Glad our potluck session being mentions in national newspaper The Star! Happy Merdeka!
KUALA LUMPUR: People can join a Merdeka potluck gathering at 8.30am Saturday at the Bukit Aman car park.
The catch is, you have to run there to be invited.
Members of the Terence Poon Running Club (TPRC), who holds the gathering annually, are welcoming running enthusiasts to join them on their 6am morning run culminating in a breakfast gathering to celebrate Merdeka.
“We are a club that promotes multi-culturalism and unity. Anyone interested to join us for runs and subsequent gatherings are welcomed,” said TPRC member Wilfred Yeo.
He said their 16km route starts from the Bukit Aman carpark to Solaris Dutamas, Mont Kiara then back to Bukit Aman.
“We have weekly long slow distance runs on Saturdays and Sundays, where we travel long distances at a leisurely pace,” said Yeo, who was with his clubmates at Dataran Merdeka on Friday for the Merdeka celebrations.
Yeo said the team decided to make a detour while they were out on a run to check out the mood at the processions.
“It is nice to see many Malaysians out in droves to celebrate out nation's independence,” said Yeo.
