    Same same!

    agentmonkey: There is no cure one as long as you are there you will get it. It's not the air thou. It's the water you drink there. Probably can bring chuan bei pi pa kau, it help ease abit when you go to bed.

    Ohh... and notice your sgt, pc and those perm staff there don't have this cough? Hehe... coz they drink from the water cooler which filter the water first. While you poor soul drank directly from the tap, if you fill up in a transparent bottle or glass, you will know why i said it's the water.

    its not the water.

    i stayed in tekong for 2.5 years. it's just the body's immune system. the body cannot take the tough activities day in day out after slacking for 18 years. it takes time to build up the immune system. just endure .. u will be fine.

    and pls la. perm staff also drink from tap water... water cooler also not exactly that clean.

    u dun see sispec trainees getting tekong cough.

    It's just a matter of getting used to friggin dirty conditions. It's part of the conditioning process.

    I encountered this when i am in BMT also. Most of us gotten it. Just keep a very close monitor on this (this is your respiratory system). Or go to MO get some medicine.

    It's seem like a common sign.

    I tink it is the excessive chlorine in the water in tekong. It irritates ur throat, causing the cough. Anyway, by the 8th or 9th wk ur throat shd get used to it, which explains y the perm staff n the sispec trainees dun get the cough. Doesnt matter whether u drink frm the cooler anot. Logical?

    It's subjective then. If you are perm staff there, you shall know where the water come from. Water from tekong don't mainly come from mainland singapore, so where it comes from? I agree is probably the adaptation to the dirty water or excessive chlorine level in the water that's why is gone after a period of time.

    Well, i don't know for you guys who is perm staff there. But this water thingy related to the cough was told by my PC, he was the idiot who fill up water from the tap in a clear mineral water bottle and show us how dirty it was. And one of the MO, ehh... only remember his surname as Yap, Dr Yap also mention is the water. It haunts the whole platoon for as long as we POP. l0l.

    Yeah! Go Gryphon! We is neighbour! I is Kilo! Go Kilo.

    lucky u... at least ur PC bothered to show u. when i was there, we were caught in no-man's land cos all the PCs and Sgts were going to ROD, so most of the time they were all clearing leave. still remembered i got reservist sgts and PCs standing in for them during training. also, b4 tekong became a holiday resort, all botaks had to gong-gong fill up our bottles at the water point. where got water coolers??

    ha! kilo is still on the top floor? gryphon was on the 2nd back then.
