    I must have heard a narration of that "X-File" report with over one hundred and one different variations of it along with the other one hundred and one "close encounters of the third kind".

    The camp where G.S.I was in (Seletar camp, near the airbase) was haunted

    LOL there're some cases on Tekong which can be debunked as caused by the "broken telephone" method of passing on the story.

    my karate instructor was a fellow platoon mate of the guy who "was killed by evil spirits and his intestines laid out nicely next to him". the story of the 3rd door.

    actual fact: he was having a fever, didn't tell the PS or the PC and went on the route march. during the march, in his delirium he slipped down a river bank, the butt of his rifle striking the ground and his stomach was impaled on the muzzle. and that's how he died... and anyways, the 3rd door was just built for superstitious reasons. nothing happened in the bunk.

    @ kei: yes, but it was a "cover-up" from the top to avoid de-moralising the recruits there.

    @ 9V-Orion: maybe... but it can be really "disturbing"...

    Not giving up... I went to a nearby hawker today for another attempt of finding satisfaction...

    As the master cook poured the fried rice onto the paper wrapping (yesh brown paper and not foam or cardboard box), I noticed pinkish stuff along with it - no reddish bits... My heart sank... "Arggh geez, luncheon meat..." Well, at least better than mocked meat right?

    Paid and went back... At the table, I opened the wrapping and got started, feeling still a bit disappointed with what I saw...Suddently: "wait... those aren't luncheon meat... *munch munch* it sure doesn't taste like one... But hey, it's ham!"... Nevermind, I continued chowing (tasted pretty damn good actually!)...then suddenly another wham! I saw red bits - morsels of REAL MEAT! (not char siew however, but coloured type)... Wow... this gets better... halfway through the meal, I've counted at least 5 full sized (not chopped), bouncy (not mushy) shrimps, a few more that has not found its way into my mouth yet!... Plus, the cook was pretty charitable with scrambled eggs too...

    Lastly... this meal is worth at least $4 at some Zhi chars... NOT $3 that I've paid for! Two small eaters can safely dine with just one packet!

    Taste wise, MUCH better than the so-called "acclaimed" Zhi chars nearer to my location (one even have posters of famous local celebs somore okay?...)... That said, I'm going to give it 4.5 stars out of 5!... Would earn the extra 0.5 if he threw in some fresh chopped lettuces (for a more balanced meal, even chopped chives would have been suffice). My wife tasted it, and she said "good, I think tonight you can go back and buy some back for the entire family, I'll just cook some fresh veges..."....

    Yippee!!!!!

    Btw, (nothing but a satisfied customer) the vendor is located at the newly renovated Telok Blangah Rise Hawker Center.

    Any more updates from anyone here?
