Our Family Basic Military Training Experience at Pulau Tekong
Just yesterday, my family accompanied my little brother to Pulau Tekong where he will transform from a boy to a man! This is what all Sinaporean Son has to experience and they have to give close to 2 years of their life to Army! We had a lot of fun visiting the camp and looking around his bunk! It was a very well organized half day tour and we are all guilty for smiling and laughing too much while my brother was nervous on what’s to come.
My brother just shave his hair and we noticed he got a really round face! HAHA. Here’s us waiting for bus at Pasir Ris Interchange!
Waiting for the ferry at the Jetty.
One of the highlight of the trip is to see their bunk! Everything is exactly like the local movie “Ah Boys to Man”!
We tested the bed and it is actually quite comfortable!
They shared with us on the items in my brother’s goodie bag!
A sneak peak on the obstacle course! Looks fun but they are supposed to complete the course in 6 minutes. OMG.
Their Officer Commander gave a talk on what’s to expect and sworn in the new recruits. The pledge is pretty funny, it started with “I, (Full name & NRIC Number),…” and ended with “WITH MY LIFE” filled with gusto. Haha.
They also asked us to follow their Facebook Page so we can track their progress! Wow! Talk about technology and social media.
We also get to sample the meal! Wasn’t too bad!
Dear Little Brother,
We have great faith that you will do just fine in the BMT given your small light built and love for Nerf! Stay strong and know that we love you lots! Good luck and enjoy the journey, make a lot of friends and make the best out of this experience! See you real soon!
Your crazy eldest sis
