Selected colour photographs from our (Shuquan, Len Chow and I) ORD trip to China are now online. As usual, you can find them here. Since I have always been interested in legends and folklore, I shall share some stories related to some of the places we visited.
Great trip yah!!! Incidentally I'm going to these same places next month. Exciting man...
Haha, yah I remember Tremblant too. The weather wasn't that great that day anyway. Besides, you can't stop once you start on these drama serials. Enjoy your trip man!

If you haven't heard, Ike See is a young talented musician who was offered a rare opportunity to study in a prestigious music school (Curtis Institute of Music in the US) but could not attend due to National Service. So far, Mindef isn't giving this guy any deferment even though he had promised to return to serve if he is allowed to defer.
Typical of Mindef and SAF. Just need one joker (ie THAT pianist) to come and SPOIL market, then now everybody also kena this stiff ruling. Does the public really care or give a shit about it? Probably not so much now. Really, MINDEF should stop being so reactionary and be consistent about their policies.

Yesterday during guard mounting, this warrant officer gave me a long speech about my uniform. Actually, he was almost shouting but it didn't feel like a scolding because I had to try so hard to keep myself from laughing.
That guy is such an ass. Speaking of self-imposed rules, he was also groussing about how in guard mounting we always ease-spring differently everytime. Although i seem to remember doing it the exact same way everytime I do guard; just that it's not his way. Funny thing is that he said he will be reflecting back to the other RSMs in the future, but thats EXACTLY the same thing he said the last time I did guard duty last month. I must imagine that everytime he comes down for guard mounting, he sees the drills being done our way, comments about how 'unstandardised' they are and how they should be done 'his' way, then meets up to bitch with the other RSMs but they just ignore him anyway and the cycle repeats.
