When your paltoon mate call you on a Saturday afternoon when you are having alert manning, only one thing could happen. So before he could said anything, I just told him “See you later”.
I could had taken Taxi to the mobilisation centre. But I decided to save money and take the MRT. Wearing my Number 4 uniform with my full battle order, I had the chance to look around me and see what am I defending.
As I stood in the train, I saw children playing.
Couples holding hands and sitting side by side.
A young mother carrying her baby with the father beside her..
As I look out the window, I see HDB flats, houses, roads and parks.
I see cars traveling on the expressway.
Teenagers cycling in the park.
And its nice to know that I’m doing my part to keep things this way…..
