    you kanna posted to where commando, diver or guards?
    as long as you suck it up, is good experience for your mental strength when you look back after you finish ns.
    just keep telling yourself "you're an elite, unlike those officers!" in order to suck it up and put through.
    at the end of it all, you find yourself asking this "how did i manage to put through? when i can chose the easy way out by getting out of course".
    i got injury during attachment so chose to drop out but only to regret it later.
    in ns life you need a bit of luck here and there in order to make it through or at least do something slack which is what most people wanted.

    You know how my platoon sergeant (staff sergeant then when I was doing my BMT more than 15 years ago), who was a special forces instructor went through the US navy seals training. While being punished by the angmoh instructor, he just keep scolding them with all the hokkien vulgar language he knows. When the ang moh instructor asked him what he is saying, he just shrugged and say, " just motivating myself!"

    huh! I also got injured during my BMT, so got out of course, but I don't care about being elite SAF, cause its not my career path...

    actually self pride varies from person to person.
    the bmt back then in your time is certainly tougher than what we are having now.
    maybe if your parents complained about it back then, who knows we could have easier bmt now
    but i find bmt in mono intake to be whole lot easier as compared to tekong.

    sorry for the late reply, my brother is reporting 7.45am to 8am at pasir ris mrt. He's going to school 2 not the same as yours... A question though, can family members bring dslr? How about camera phone?

    Really? I don't wish my cam to be whisked off by the MPs for safekeeping... Any bros who brought your dslr in before for your relatives' enlistment pls let me know.

    If not i'll have to settle for my hp or at the least, my FE2 film slr with a 50mm.

    good luck then ... have fun.. if you're in school2 Scorpion.. i know the WO there.. he was my friend even before i enlisted, and i didnt even know he was a regular ahahaha

    anyway, SAF getting strict. sadly, you'll remain a recruit if you OOC/OOT till you bmt recourse, means if u never recourse in your 2yrs of service, when you ORD ,you're still a recruit.. sadly


    anyway... ORD LOH!!! 1 and a half more WORKING month to go !!

    Lol...what i loved about school 2 is that its nearer to the jetty

    I'm from pegasus company...next to the cookhouse, but must wind here and there just to march to cookhouse for meals....

    To survive BMT is to follow instructions...simple. Do it and nobody will tekan you. Only problem is that there will be some people in your platoon/section who are deviants which will make life difficult for the rest....trust me...there are such ppl.

    If you're PES C9 like me, BMT will be the most "shiong" part of your NSF life. If not, it is just the beginning...
