A Quarter of A Century

10th December 2014


So, I found this in my mailbox. I was literally laughing out loud while reading this letter. If it was meant to be a surprise, I’m surprised! Whoever wrote this deserve my standing ovation. The logo is pretty impressive. Meticulous.

I google these words “Bevande, Canto, Dragobarca” and found out that they are in Italian. It means “Drinking. Singing. Dragon Boat”.

It’s totally made my day but the suspense of not knowing what’s in store is killing me!


13th December 2014

At 07 00 hours I received a text from an unknown number (well played) informing me that the 2 escorts that suppose to pick me will be late.


When the 2X escorts arrived, I nearly died. Looks like they did put in effort in dressing up. Well done, Soldier! Happiest morning ever. Never did I expect my 2 escorts to be Bao Gege & Yen Kai! I must say, I am surprised!

20141213_072106(Inside Joke) The entire time, we were laughing at Bao Gege’s attire as it looks as if his body is planning to go 3 different places – Upper Body: It’s what he would wear for DB training; Butt: It’s what he would wear when he go town; Feet: It’s what he would wear for reservist

We grabbed a cab to Mandai Road. I Thought we will be going to the Zoo until they walked into this trail…





Embarrassed much. This is by far the most embarrassing thing I ever did in my 25 years living on this planet.  I’ve received countless dirty stares.

There was a Chinese couple that walked past me. I overheard the guy telling the girl that “I am a nutcase!” C’mon, It’s a birthday sabotage. Loosen up a bit will ya?!




20141213_110750We decided to drop the tree top hall. Too shagged & No time!


1A we-fie for every checkpoint: Woodcutter Trail, Bukit Pangjang, Rifle Range, Instead of moving our bum to MacRitchie nature trail, we made a wrong turn and ended up at Upper Thomson Road. We had to track back to MacRitchie as there will be another escort taking over. All in all, we took 6 hours!

20141213_125320I had fun! Thank you boys for taking up this physical-demanding slot of the day! Lots of love. Face Throwing A Kiss


20141213_132316Escort #3, Kingyiu, came to pick me up for lunch.

After 6 hours of hiking, my legs aren’t mine anymore. They made me skate non-stop for 1.5hours. Beyond tired. Mingyun left after the ice-skating to fulfil her soldier’s duty. Despite your tight schedule you made time for me. I love you. Face Throwing A Kiss

Jiahe & Kingyiu brought me to Harbour Front. It was raining cats and dogs so, they texted the HQ and asking for further instruction. While queuing up to buy myself a drink, they came up with Plan B. Impressive Thumbs Up Sign Later I was told that the original plan was to go to Wave House @ Sentosa. Thanked God for the rain! I can’t imagine how am I suppose to balance on the surfboard for another hour.

IMG-20141214-WA0022In agony! Kingyiu & Jiahe didn’t allow me to sleep on the train. They even forbid me to take the escalator or the elevator. With my already aching legs, I had to climb stairs! The stairs at all NEL station’s are exceptionally long.



So, we went rock climbing instead!

IMG-20141214-WA0039This policeman left after rock climbing. He had to pick his Mum up from the airport! Weekends are exceptionally precious to NSF still, you gave me half of your Saturday! Love you lots Face Throwing A Kiss


IMG-20141214-WA0041Toast & Egg for dinner!

The last activity is pretty obvious. Anyway Bao Gege had already let the cat out of the bag during hiking. While we were walking and singing Bao Gege went, “later the K session I want to sing this song” then he showed me the “opps” look. haha! Anyway, I knew eating at Toast Box was to stall for time for the rest to do their last minute preparation.

IMG-20141214-WA0047Because of my love of Teh Ping (Ice Milk Tea), they got me 1 litre worth. I have never drank so much Teh Ping to the extent of puking. Effort Much.


IMG-20141214-WA0079This girl followed me almost the entire day. She is as tired as I am. Thank you, lovely.




19 hours worth of (physical) activities. Pure madness. Thank you everyone for keeping me occupied & happy from 0700 hours to 0200 hours. Whether you’re involved in the planning, coordinating, or executing of this operation, you deserve my standing ovation. I will safe keep these awesome memories in my heart.

Thank you everyone for putting in so much effort and your precious time to take up different shifts. (I manage to get hold of the operation charlie Whiskey chat log. Couldn’t stop laughing!). The suspense of not knowing where to go or what to do next is the major killer but I had so much fun and beyond touched! 谢谢 XOXO

P.s.: Commando 就是 Commando. Yenkai is the Commanding Officer in this Operation Charlie Whiskey. The letter, the planning, coordinating and execution deserved many many love from me. Good Job, Pretty impressed.
