    Haha reading all this brings back memories. One thing i clearly remember was Stand by Cupboard -> Bed -> Bunk -> Level -> Universe and those "EVerything in! Everything out!" =X The whole coy kana wack left right center...

    gee...

    do they still practice white tape on helmet to identify bo bo shooters?

    and Reporting RP back then was as good as going to DB. I did 14 days Reporting RP.

    reporting to guard room to entertain MP every hour. Standby full pack every hour. Area cleaning for the entire Nee Soon Camp.

    I remember the standby bed have to layout everything in order inside that small cupboard..
    they even check your spoon is clean a not by checking whether can use as mirror to see ur teeth..they oni provide that lousy soap bar for washing which sometimes cannot wash off very oily stains..

    Talk about C*** hair, they sometimes even check the soap box for it..

    I thought I was a *******...... looks like I am pretty mild.......

    Cannot imagine how they bring the bunk down to parade square. Those were the days....

    Before I ROD, MINDEF came out with a directive that recruits cannot be punish with more than 20 push ups......... solution? We started from -20.... too soft, cannot hear again..... start from beginning.... once finish, we ask them "Whats the miximum number of push-ups you have counted?" All will shout 20!!. Of course, if you have one shouted 40! then it starts all over again..... normally no repeat of this type of mistake, bec after that, it blanket party at night .... lesson times............. hahahahah..........
