Nori "S.A.M. D.I.M." Norita

Passed away on 15 June 2009 at hospital in her home country of Indonesia.

SAM DIM (Slap A Macau D*ck In Me) did not like her earlier name, Slappa, or the replacement, Slappa D*ck In Me, but after an away trip to Macau the extended version was somehow acceptable, but maybe just because SAM DIM also sounds like 3 o'clock in Cantonese.

SAM DIM began hashing with WH3 in 2004 and has 186 runs and 14 harings recorded in the few years she was with us. She was Nurse in 2005-06, Flash in 2006-07, Stash in 2007-08 and Cash in 2008-09.

C.P. "Humpty Dumpty" Lam

Passed away in November 2007.

Humpty Dumpty was Hong Kong Chinese and an ex-mariner who lost much of his hearing while working in the boiler rooms. As a single man and with no relatives WH3 became his family. He joined the hash in the early years and was a regular from then on with 327 runs recorded. Unfortunately he lost a leg in a car accident during a business trip to China but that did not stop him coming along on Sundays with armfulls of pictures (mainly of the harriettes) to hand out and camera in hand to do it all again. The annual hash magazines would also have been rather plain without his photos to help fill the pages and bring back the memories.
