    Yes. Only help to carry our boys' barang barang. They can then go fight without carrying their full packs. May be can let the maids carry their SAR21 and ammo too. Our boys just walk up to front line to face the enemies.

    4. Got contractors pick up their rubbish on ground floor of barracks everyday
    5. Flu or cough will get 1 day MC and Stay in Bunk or go home if its 2 days or more MC

    When we say area cleaning, we mean the toilets, corridors, bunks, parade square, store room, etc. Nowadays still practise this, or clean by bangalas?

    Also, we do this EVERYDAY, not only during exercise days.

    Do you think the freelance security advisers in Afghanistan are all Americans? In addition, the US army has a programme where you can serve in combat areas where US prefer not to send their precious sons of Americans. After your stint they may give you citizenship (if you live).

    What I am trying to say is when after a very tiring ex, we still need to do area cleaning before we take a rest not forgetting clearing arm when the DO asked everybody to do so.

    I just dont how I managed it or how my mates did it.

    Just one of those so call routine!

    Ah... right you are right 1206! Sometimes instead, we 'buy' from the ..........

    That's part and parcel of army life and military training. No matter how tired, hack care de, just do it! Last time where got welfare this cannot do, that cannot do. See the training of our army boys now, I shake head.

    When I was in Taiwan for training, a very well known verse was circulating around the Taiwanese Army camp: 合理的是訓練,不合理的是磨練!

    And one think we know: 玉不磨,不成器!

    The officers gathered along Bedok Rise, which is near the Tanah Merah MRT station, for a quick debrief yesterday evening and were observed by this blogger. The group stood out in the quiet estate because I have seen police surveillance teams in action and somehow sensed the group did not fit in with the streetscape.

    One officer was overheard updating an unnamed party via mobilephone that there were x targets for the day and the maid at one premises was not in.

    Objection !!!

    Not a clever way. Maids are strictly documented. Easy to check with all maid agencies who have posted maids to Tanah Merah area. Check the photo. Then easy to find the culprit. Also, the neighbours must have easily recognised the idiot and his maid, and can inform the Army. Even other maids can easily tell on them. Maids have their social circle. Give a $10,000 reward.
