Ris Low may have leopard preen
But she don’t have camo cream
Enemy stare still can’t find me
But weekend my face kena acne ah
Aiyo aiyo ai aiyo ah
Aiyo aiyo ai aiyo ah

Well, at least the acne is not as bad as 2007.
Just finished my 8th In Camp Training (aka ICT/Reservist). Every ICT is a reminder that you are no longer as young and fit as before. This year’s ICT was a lot less xiong compared to the past few years, yet I still feel tired after the exercise. Wonder how did I managed to complete last year’s exercise without falling out.
On a high note, we went to Pulau Tekong for exercise this year. This is my first time back on that island ever since I pass out from BMT. That’s 10 years already. Sure bring back some memories.
Next ICT is in January 2012. We got 1 year break on 2011. That’s a first ever since we ORD. 2 more ICT and we are done. Am looking forward to that. Getting old already. How to continue chiong like the NSF?

Found a company called SaveMyAss. Interesting name. And judging from the service they provide, they can really save a lot attached and married man’s ass.

In short, SaveMyAss is a flower delivery service / relationship insurance policy. They send flowers to their customer’s girlfriend or wife on a regular basis. All the customer needs to do is to sign up for a package and provide important dates such as birthdays and anniversaries. SaveMyAss will arrange 10 flower deliveries over the next 12 months to the customer’s girlfriend/wife. A few days before sending the flowers, they will email customer the details to remind them and also to edit or cancel the order if required.
Isn’t this a fantastic service? Now you won’t miss the birthday or anniversaries anymore. There is even a panic button for customers who are in trouble and need to send flower to their girlfriend/wife quickly.
Too bad the service isn’t available in Singapore yet. Every attached and married man should get this service. Hahahaha…..

Do you know that 5.2% of the Singapore population aged 60 years and above are living with dementia? That’s 22,000 Singaporean!
To raise awareness of dementia as well as to de-stigmatise the condition, the Health Promotion Board (HPB) has commissioned acclaimed local director Royston Tan, to direct a short film on dementia. Titled “Ah Kong‟, the six-minute film is a moving story on seeing a loved one through the mirror of dementia. The film tells a poignant story of a grandson seeking to understand and reach out to his grandfather who is diagnosed with dementia.

The two-minute version of the film will air on Channel 8, Suria and Vasantham on 26 September 2010 while the full-length version can be viewed on YouTube. Copies of the film will also be made into DVDs and distributed for free at Poh Kim and VideoEzy outlets.

I’ll update this blog post when the short film is up. In the meantime, do stay tuned for the 2 minute version coming your way on 26 September. I’ve added the video at the bottom of this blog entry.

By the way, in case you are wondering, the 10 warning signs of dementia are:-
1. Memory loss that affects day to day functions
2. Difficulty doing familiar tasks
3. Confusion about time and place
4. Problems communicating
5. Difficulty planning or solving problems
6. Poor or decreased judgement
7. Misplacing things
8. Changes in mood or behaviour
9. Changes in personality
10. Withdrawal from work or social activities
Update: Here is the short film, Ah Kong by Royston Tan. Best watched in HD.

Dementia doesn’t change who they are inside.

I’ve always wonder about the song 月亮代表我的心 (The moon represent my heart). I don’t know about you, but if someone tells you that the moon represent his/her heart, then wouldn’t that be something to worry about? Cause the moon changes every night. Hmmm….. OK, I think too much.
Happy Mid-Autumn Festival everybody.

Cyber Pioneer TV is doing a new series call “Every Singaporean Son”. The series follow 15 recruits from different backgrounds thru their Basic Military Training journey. It’s like BMT reality TV, except nobody gets voted off Pulau Tekong every week.
Here’s the first episode of Every Singaporean Son.

More episodes can be found here. The series started on 08 Jul 10 and subsequent episodes will be released every Tuesday at 6pm.
The opening song for every episode is different to match the episode’s topic. I think all the opening song is pretty nicely done.
For some weird reason, I actually enjoyed watching it. Maybe because the videos bring back some bitter sweet memories of my time in BMT. In fact, it’s been 10 years since I enlist into BMT, yet some things are still the same.
I think all pre-enlistee should watch the video. It provides a rough idea of what to expect in BMT. NOTE: Rough idea only hor.
I know some of you might say this is all wayang. Well, you can’t expect them to show you all the Tekan portion right? And they have to remove all the hokkien vulgarities just in case there are children watching. Apart from that, I think it is a pretty good representation of what’s happening at BMT.
And of cos we shouldn’t show too much spoilers to the pre-enlistee. Else there won’t be any more surprise for them.
PS: Glad that they call the series “Every Singaporean Son” instead of the term “Every Mother Son” which we always use in the army. 🙂
