    my understanding is that if one is driving, jurong camp has parking facilities. one uses public transport, boon lay interchange is better.

    I went to the AOH today, Saturday. Yes, if you're driving, you've to park your car at Jurong Camp.

    There're not many people at the AOH maybe because of the COMEX.

    If you're going for the live firing, you need to get the ticket early. The SAR21 live firing is also very popular.

    Minister for Defence Dr Ng Eng Hen unveiled the leopard tank at around 0900 hrs.

    Unfortunately, this event was not for the public to witness as the first public transport to reach Pasir Laba camp was around 0945 as the bus was going round 3 DIV, OCS and then Pasir Laba camp. I was in the first bus that reached Pasir Laba camp.

    We were greeted with smoke from smoke grenade when we first reach there, there were many official photographers taking the photo of unveiling the license plate and the Minister for Defence Dr Ng Eng Hen was gone after that.

    Ex Chief of Defence Winston Choo was also there with his family. He was in the second tonner during the live firing.

    think of it this way..if it's that sensitive,what's the point of having a AOH right?

    it's blanks. cos i'm sorta involved in that as you know -.- the rain is a major issue. some of the passengers got wet due to the vehicles not being able to reach the alighting point in time hahaha.

    I Love You :)
