    Only 1 is given for use and stand by bed, by the way the one for standby can ... be used! The other depends on batch is a Gilette Mach 3 shaver, sometimes CQ can forget to indent. The latter shaver may come much later in BMT.

    Please no camera unless you want it confiscated. Rules says no camera.

    No more than 10 tablets of Panadol allowed.

    You only need 1 extra set of PT tee, singlet and shorts. Unless you don't intent to do any washing.

    Most important thing that is usually lost are gutters to fold in the bottom end of the camo trousers. Get 2 pairs from beach road or buy with your credit (given when you enter).

    If you are a smoker, stock up your cigarattes, but you will seldom get the chance to smoke.

    liquid kiwi for last minute touck up if you have no time to shine your boots. Please 1 or 2 pieces of rag for area cleaning, fans are always dirty ...

    photostated copies of qualifications (2 sets).

    bring deep heat ... 1 to 2 tubes ... tiger balm is the best!!!

    1 trash bag, 1 maglite if you can afford it ... batteries for your handphone ... no charging in there.

    Don't have to bring your own iron as it is provided.

    Bring girlfriend photo too so that you dun get to homesick.

    Day 1 and 2 is very hectic ... your commanders will sleep much later than you.

    Bring also a good alarm clock.

    Bring a few pens and pencil ... maybe your whole pencil box with black permanent markers too. 1 free pen on day 1 but somehow on day 2, 70% of recruits will lose their pen because it falls out of their shorts easily.

    Bring your own clothes peg (1 box of wooden pegs, so you can write your name) and hangers ... not provided. Bring 5 sets.

    Bring your own tower as SAF towel does a better job as a rain coat.

    Write your name on anything and everything, underwear included unless it is a Armani ...

    whah ... long list ... there is probably some other thing ... but that's all for now!

    Life is great in there, don't worry. You get to eat salmon and spring chicken or are they serving sashimi now??
    Enjoy your king koil bed too.

    ...

    I went in there for a visit..

    It looked like a resort in there, with the soft sea breeze, the sunny yellow buildings, the tennis court, the basketball court and the swimming pool with the smoothest surface in the world...
    They were playing music from the cook house..
    Some of the officers are cute....

    Then also got the nice sandbar at the pier. I thought it was pretty..

    But when I returned home, my brother told me it was all a show.
    It's like hell in there for him.

    Sorry.... Did I burst your bubble?

    Believe me it is no hell ... it is paradise ... those who join before 1999 can testify ... on the other hand I feel that they put up a show to make it look tough but it is actually alot easier than most people think ...

    I agree, that's why BMT is nothing compared with what's after.
