    When I was in Sispec training in Tekong (the 1 week stay there), I volunteered to exchange with my bunkmates for their pork tin rations. Apparently quite a few were afraid to bring pork there on advise of time of the others who went there before. Old rations.

    So I took 1 week worth of pork meat and the hard tack... Thing is, nothing did try to get to me, only spookiest thing that happened was when my section was prone 30m away from the tracks trying to ambush passer-bys at night. We heard malay prayers.

    After thinking about it, we realised it was carried over from JB side.

    Anyway, ROD lor... no more such things to play with...

    My experience was in 1978 and I was in the school outward bound team. I was leading a group of school mates for topo and we reach a temple where there were many pineapples growing. I think some of us ate the pineapples and then as we march forward we got lost in the jungle and some of us got worried. I remembered it was about evening time and sun was setting, we are kind of scared and suddenly out from the forest came a man in white Tees and short approach us and directed us to the road. We managed to find the road and later to our destination. The fact is, out of the blue there is this man in white tees and shorts coming out of the forest and from nowhere. later when I check with some elders and they say it could be Toa Pek Kong.

    For me this is a lucky encounter.

    we come in all shapes n size. smaller size then become R1, basher lor.
    bigger size n more able to ENDURE, become R2 lor.

    each sold seperately with accessories not included.




    not everyone can be a recce. need to be pes B n up.

    need to pass certain security check of which the criteria is never made known to mere mortals like us n such rubbish la. the i.q test cannot do too badly la.. all these.

    we're a special breed as we're the '1st in last out' n good chance we'll die first in war n become hantus to haunt the enemies.
