Great Moment - ORD

ORD Function was definitely one of those great moment. Thats the day we officially say goodbye to all those sucky food in the canteen which was catered by SFI (Singapore Food Industry), no more field camps, which also mean no more sleeping with Commando Mosquito and last but not least, welcome FREEDOM back to my life!!!!! The function was held in some country club which i can't remember exactly where, all i remember was, FREE FLOW of BEER!!!! That night was the night where almost all my platoon mate was drunk, including myself of course Haha.
We were so drunk until at the end of the function, we couldn't locate the toilet and we just pee right outside the country club. Imagine witnessing 8 guys standing side by side n pee right in front of the Country Club's sign where pedestrian had perfect vision of whats' kept beneath those Jeans that we're trying to hide all these years.... O.O Now thats what i call a Glamorous Sight *shame* *shame*

Worst Moment of My Life Part.2

2nd year of my NS time was the actual worst moment of my life so far. I miss fired a real 5.56mm round and it almost hit one of my platoon mate. Imagine if that round were to pierce thru his body, seriously i dun know what i gonna say to his parents... But luckily, that didn't happen. And for that incident, i had to serve 14 days SOL (Suspension Of Leave) which means i have to stay inside the camp for the whole 14 days not allowing to book out even on weekends. This was just the beginning... About a month later, a few days before my trip to India for a 2 weeks training, my buddy and i was caught slacking while doing Guard Duty. And for that, i had to serve 21 days SOL -___- As if 35 days of SOL were not enough, 2 months later i miss fired AGAIN at a FIBUA (Fighting In Build Up Area) training. And again, i served another 14 torturous days of SOL........ No words can justify how much stress i was experiencing at that point of time. Even till this day, I'm quite curious how on earth i managed to survived my 2nd year, maybe its the encouragement that i was showered with by my Platoon mates and commanders, especially my Platoon Sergent, 1st.SGT Raju.

Worst Moment of My Life Part.1

Well, its gotta be the 2 years in ARMY of course. 1st year was pretty smooth, with standard stuff like BMT, Training Course, lots of field camps and btw field camp is really no joke, imagine moving around the jungle from morning to night carrying more than 10kg of stuff with sucky food to answer the call of your stomach, a few mins of rest to ease the pain from your sored-feet and aching body. The best part... you have to do all these for a minimum of 3 days 2 nights WITHOUT showering or bathing, only allowed to powder yourself to stop the itch and covering the smell. And so, my 1st year passed by without any major incident...
