Eighth Bookout

This week we had Basic Assault Course. Basically we were to run down a distance of 25 meters and kick or rifle butt various targets along the way. Oh, we had to yell agressively also.

With Games Day and other competitions coming up, we are busy with preparation. Personally, I’m taking part in the Drill Competition. We haven’t had much practice, and the competition day draws close. I’m a bit worried. I hope we don’t go home empty handed; lest our effort go to waste. I’m looking forward to getting a day off.

On Friday we went to visit the Singapore Discovery Center as part of National Education. Everybody was happy to be able to book out early on Friday noon. The guide some was retired Lieutenant-Colonel. He harped on the evils of regional politicians at that time. Meh.

Some of us went to Jurong Point for an early dinner. I don’t know how we ended up at Banquet, but it was terrible. I ordered a 6.40 Tempura Udon which was crappily done. Soup tasted like crap, noodles were too little, and the tempura batter sucked. I will never eat there again. (Damn you Kirk, you should have brought us upstairs to the other food court.)

In the evening I went out with my family to eat at Bishan. We also went to watch this movie called The Kingdom. The plot? Americans versus terrorists. Such a predictable theme for our times.

Two more weeks to POP!!

    Wow… never knew Singaporeans were trained to be so aggressive… =)

    According to one government minister, we Singaporeans are ‘kia si’ (afraid of death); ‘kia su’ (afraid of losing out); and ‘kia bor’ (afraid of wife). Heck, if we aren’t aggressive, we’re in trouble.

    Ha ha ha!
