Week 21/38

Pretty average week, but the discipline of the wing going downhill due to the persistence of certain individuals wanting to talk in a file. Hopefully after the scolding and "corrective training", they will wake up (but then again, I highly doubt so...)

Day 1
Still chilling. Don't remember anything important being done today.

Day 2
SOC test. Hur hur, finally the end of SOC. Finishing it seems so simple yet induces such breathlessness. Apparently, the breathlessness stems from all the height drops which kicks out all the air and since you are continuing ahead without stoppage, the breath just cannot come back until the end of SOC. Hmm, guess that does not matter anymore because NO MORE SOC!!

Day 3
Heliborne voice procedure test and practical. Quite fun; brings back memories of when I was back in the RSAF (Royal Singapore Air Force), although I must admit, I ain't that good at it anymore :( practical was muddy... hmm then more admin and packing for Brunei.

Day 4
Brunei briefing and pre-Brunei unhappy hour! Had buffet at Kushinbo, not my cup of tea... but I learnt how to choose the best crab meat :) you just gotta kick the ones that has the highest density, healthiest/ strongest shell aka the fresh ones with succulent meat. #perksofdiningwithfishermen

Week 20/38

Short but crazy week, probably because of CSB 32km...

Day 1
Nothing much, they had to give us mandatory rest before our 32km route march hmm.
Route march start: 2130

Day 2
Counted day 2 when it hit 0000. People starting to get tired, and as a result, very angsty... I do not understand why some people just cannot control their emotions and act professionally. Is professionalism not part of the SAF core values which you obviously live by in NS? I may not be perfect but at the very least I try my best to control my emotions. Speaking of which, 32km was NOT FUN; I was the rear scout, aka the last man who walks alone without friends and have to cheer myself up. Must have sang to myself at least 30 songs LOL, for motivation. Everything felt alright until we crossed the water obstacle... HOLY SHIT SIA, every abrasion I never felt before erupted painfully. Nonetheless, we completed it and the 100m shoot. CSB badge woohoo~

Day 3
Post-CSB rest day, had swimming confidence test which I half passed D: but it's alright. Had lessons, more rest.

Day 4
SOC test cancelled by our wing comd! I swear he is the best we can ever wish for. Anyway, we had another swim/ waterpolo competition in replacement of SOC, plus canteen break after the swim. What a day~ Family engagement day followed after at 1745, but since I did not want to trouble my parents to come here, I went to pack my JCC stuff instead hehe. The brunei feels is setting in.
