RSAF Open House 2006 & Number Portability

RSAF Open House 2006 & Number Portability

Well, it was a fun time at the RSAF Open House 2006 yesterday, as I met up with my platoon mates who are on duty, bumped into my CWO and saw the ex-Comd ADSD there. The aerial display was really fun, and you get to see F16s fly close to the exhibition area (like, 20m above the ground), conducting a mock bombing of the runway, various exhibits from aerospace manufacturers, visiting the flight simulator and grabbing freebies like stickers, bags…

An ORD Message, And Strange Days Ahead…

An ORD Message, And Strange Days Ahead…

With the clearance forms signed, items dekitted, stores returned, certificates collected, well-wishes accepted and handshakes shaken, I am now officially an NSman of the RSAF. However, its a half-happy and half-sad event for me, I guess. Knowing that you have been through tough and good times with other guys of your own age, and disbanding our little band of brothers makes me feel uneasy about the future of each of us. Will we see each other again? What interesting things…

A Small World

A Small World

Well, it was Flight run day again last Friday, at East Coast Park, near the newly-constructed lagoon. Remember what happened last time? Yes, another “incident” happened again – we saw Campus Superstar’s Theresa running! Too bad there wasn’t anyone around to take a photo when that happened. Its a small world after all…at least in Singapore.

Last Christmas, I OOC-ed…

Last Christmas, I OOC-ed…

Whoa, time really has flown – it’s been a year since I OOC-ed and have been in my squadron for a year already. Last month we had a short chemical defence training, where we had to wear chemical protective suits and do some physical exercises in a CS chamber. Quite fun to do it, and I had a few laughs from it – one guy couldn’t change his canister in the chamber and had to be brought out, and another…

Combat Shoot and Life Day

Combat Shoot and Life Day

Phew, another 2 weeks gone by. We went for a combat shoot yesterday, but because of a glitch in the computer program displaying the targets, the results that we had were forfeited, and another day has to be scheduled for combat shoot. Not that I mind in any way – my team barely made it through the day shoot, because one of my teammate’s rounds got jammed in his rifle, and by the time he remedied his magazine, he’d missed…

Chickenpox

Chickenpox

Of all times, I had to get chickenpox for the past 2 weeks. Sigh. 2 weeks Attend C. The first few days I had headaches and boils cropping up all over my body, face, and scalp. Strangely there was no itching, but more of slight inflammation I think. Thank goodness the doctor gave me antivirals, otherwise I’d die of itching. Well, before I had chickenpox, we had just finished an exercise. During the exercise we had NSmen taking over us…

Near-Accident And Being The Convoy Commander at Sentosa

Near-Accident And Being The Convoy Commander at Sentosa

Well, another week has gone by. What happened over the week was that on Friday two weeks ago (2nd Sept), one of my platoonmates was operating a hangar door when the sliding door came crashing down, when I was standing 2-3m away from the door. WHOA. CO came down, then followed by our RSM and WOs, and S3, etc. The end result is that the entire complex hangar doors were taped up with white tape the following Monday, and notices…
