redstone- yes there was once a temple (maybe more?) when the villages was still around. (just like ubin have right now). Maybe the temple is still there? Perhaps they leave it alone without demolishing out of respect, but i could be wrong.
i thot in Charle's research, Camp 1 is already demolished? (the link in ts's first post here)
One of my reservist exercise was at Tekong in 2000. My scout team was on the misson to the rubber plantation at North East. I was leading the team through the wood at night and suddenly I felt my hairs were standing up at a nearby junction. I went to confirm the location and was surprise we were at the cemetery. Quickly advice my team to double up our pacing to get out of that place. What's a creeky experience !
Recce... All the way!
Operating in small teams has its advantages.
In the first place, how could saikong enter that area at night and some more with so many pp.
i cringed when i remember the walk is usually over 10+ km and with all that rubbish on me, really torture. worst part is sometimes need to be 'tactical' or double up. those were the worst.
i remember when i was training in thailand, an exercise that lasted for 3 days saw me walk all over kanchanaburi area with limited ration n water, covering more than 80km. return to s'pore in such a SLIM n SEXY bodyline ok!
anyway, when u start to get tired with all that walk, it is easy to hallucinate.
it was in thailand during one of the long treks when my T.C asked me who i was waving to. i told him there're villagers across the road n i'm only being polite by waving to them. hahahaha he simply tell us to double up. it was only after the exercise that he told me he see nothing but jus deep dark forest.
thus fatigue does play a part n make u see extra stuff la, sometimes.
aiya, u dun walk into hantu can liao la.
