24th jan 2009

Haha been a long time since i last posted

just finished my Field Camp!
6 days of no bathing(just powder bathing)
running,crawling,kneeling on all sorts of ground surfaces
sleeping in holes in the ground
shitting in holes in the ground(i didnt shit for 6 days..)
peeing amongst the grass
getting all sorts of weird rashes
eating combat rations
no talking,just whispering and signalling
having to wear back the same uniform for 2~3days after all the sweat from training

wearing a vest and helmet and a 4~5kg rifle all the time
(that includes peeing,shitting,sleeping)

having to guard your own weapon 24hours around the clock
worst of all was to find your stuff in the dark with a torch that is tacticalized to a point that it defeats its purpose of a torchlight...
haha it was damn crappy

but,i felt we were very lucky
there was no rain for the whole camp (which means less trouble)
my section commander is super nice
the place we had to dig our shell scrape was soft as previous groups had dug before
we had KFC in the middle of the jungle due to Chinese New Year celebrations

all in all,
it was tiring,but i enjoyed it :)

lost damn alot of weight,around 6kg haha

yesterday went to laselle to meet my friends
we went over to orchard cineleisure
on our way there,bumped into john tung,yongwen and dickson
went to collage
bought a pair of skinny jeans(my first pair)
and a shirt

haha but i like it alot :)
my friend helped me with the choosing
then we went to catch Inkheart at 11:30pm
age friendly movie i would say

im looking forward to a damn awesome dinner on CNY
i still think army is fun
