    For all to be recruits, please enjoy your BMT , cause it might be the only enjoyment period of your NS life ... of course nothing beats your off and leave ....

    least chance of getting duty, no big responsibility, just look after your butt and your section and you will most probably have your weekend out of the camp though now it's tekong...abit troublesome for those who stay in the west esp

    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.
    r u a BMT inztructor ..... ?? ....

    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?
    a better word will be Wayang .....

    extra hairs stuck to shaver
    They don't check these now of these days ... stand by bed is a big joke now of these days ... instructors get more extras then recruits during stand by.

    Commander>>smashed into 2.
    Gunner>>snapped his neck.
    Driver>>snapped the neck but didn't die. died because tank flipped into water. >> drowned.
