    Don't think you are know you are ...

    Best of luck ... if you ever need counseling call the SAF counselling hotline ...

    Oh ... bring a phonecard and some coins ... your handphone might get a bad reception.

    Please remember to bring a small key lock too ... with at least 3 spare keys ...

    In their 'goodie' sling bag, they will provide you with a $2 phonecard.

    And bring lots of coins (provided that you are allowed to drink the drinks from the vending machine on every level... )

    keylock quite useless.. if got ppl in bunk during field camp, the lock sure kena break.

    buy selley's magnetic lock.

    washing machine best if share with section mates who wanna wash also. that thing can take in a lot of clothes.

    Depend on company, some have 1 week to 3 weeks no washing machine rule .... to teach you to wash your own clothes.

    True true..
    Compared with you guys, NS is much easier..
    With decent cookhouse food (compared to you guys), more welfare training and stuff..

    For for our generation, we are too well pampered to be able to withstand any small hardships, so some people still find BMT tough.

    Well, I'm not generalising, but when I was in BMT, there were sooo much 'mama boys' that their mommas had to literally carry their book in bags on the first day of enlistment.... Straightaway kerna marked by sgts.

    the same saying that applies anywhere, anytime:

    When it's time to work, work hard,
    When it's time to play, play hard!

    And get to know ur buddies and mates well there.
    At least 10 weeks will be with them

    Never try to "hide" the locker key under the bed or pillow...etc when you go for PT lessons (no hard objects allowed).

    The last time, when some of the guys did it, their officer, got a SGT to go back to search and "keep" the keys to the lockers.

    They all got extra duties, cause the rifles are in the lockers and if someone stole your locker keys, he will have access to your rifle.

    So a good strong NON-numerical lock is neccessary.

    And try to avoid dropping your rifle. It never fails to get you some form of punishment for it.

    The part I missed most about BMT was the Hand Grenade Throwing.

    It's a once in a lifetime event, unless you got to be a SGT and then got posted back to BMTC and got picked to do a demo throw.

    I could see the eagerness on the face of all the SGTs all volunteering to be the demostrator for the live grenade throw.

    Didn't felt as scary as I thought, though disappointed that my grenade did not hit the target. (could not have asked for a re-throw.)
