Ants in my Army pants too

iTunes' party shuffle is playing: Things Have Changed - Bob Dylan - Wonder Boys [Soundtrack]
The chatter has begun. Me and my Reservist (I still use that term even though they've called us NSmen for the past ten years) platoon have a Yahoo! Group where we keep each other posted on rumours of what the powers that be have in store for us during in-camp. We also use our Yahoo! Group to announce important things, such as weddings and births and when we can meet up for drinks. It's roughly two months out from this year's ICT, and we're a little nervous. Apparently there won't be any nights out in the second week, and weekends will be spent in-camp. The 'good' news is that very soon after this ICT, there'll be another in 2005, which will be in Australia! Woohoo! There, we will revise how to fight in the desert or something. Very useful. The fact that I am so looking forward to reservist is testament to my needing a holiday very, very badly. Next month's trip to HK is not considered one. I am going there for the ex's wedding. Yes, I am feeling antsy, just like most everyone else. And if this gets any worse, I'll want to cut someone. Or something. Today's coffee break, brought to you by Grand Hyatt Singapore

Sorry about the Green Hornet. Did not think it would be offensive. And yeah, the proudly Singapore-made rifle looks nice enough to look like a Philip Starck design. Works well too. It's got laser lights and all. So cool.

I dont blame you. I would love to have been a soldier but it's against my diet.

If you have hot bods with six packs changing like that , with nice even tan.. Please post more picture ok?


I cant stand it. Everytime I see your food photos, I cringe with jealousy!! I feel like just grabbing my clothes and run out and go somewhere nice for a meal with some good companions..

Powerpuff, there is one guy in my platoon with a six-pack, and another with an even tan. They're pretty strict about cameras and camera phones now (ever since Abu Ghraib), so I don't think I can sneak shots in the bunk any more. As for 'food pictures', go out and have lunch at a nice place, and there ya go.

Caleb, Shhhh. I don't like being a soldier. If I declare unashamedly, they'll 'arrow' me big time.

Well, I had home cooked porridge for lunch. Just as good :)Hopefully later, dinner will be good one. I know I am going out for dinner with some folks. I just dunno where and exactly who will be in the group :D

Have a nice saturday evening, miyagi!

As an NS-exempt Singapore taxpayer and military buff, I'm glad to hear that the SAR-21 works. Was worried that it would be like the British SA-80 Individual Weapon, which was a nice-to-see, lousy-to-shoot piece of shite.

CZM, your tax money was put to good use building the SAR-21. It is an excellent rifle, but only for right handers. I'm a leftie, but have to use my right, because the cartridge ejection slot cannot be changed. Well balanced and accurate if only a bit heavy, the last time we were at range for familiarity shoot, we could pick out left or right nipple to aim at from 100m at a Fig. 11 target. The 1.5X scope and Laser Aiming Device is a treat.
