I got back my pink I/C.

I never felt so nice feeling my pink identify card. It’s not really about the colour of the identify card but rather the obligation behind it.  No more greeting someone i don’t respect “SIR” or “ENCIK” or whoever rank is higher than mine. Ya, i am a lowly rank(CPL) soldier at the end of my 2 1/2 years national service but I just can’t stand greeting people when they can’t earn my respect.

Within the 2 1/2 years of service, i encountered all sort of people which i never thought exist in this world but apparently, they do. National Service strengthen my existing character traits and help me achieve my personal best fitness level then.I am glad to know some friends whom i can trust and suffer together. Relationship really can strengthen and deepen if you not only enjoy together but also to suffer together. “One for all, All for one.”

Normally, i never place this date to be of any importance but it just feel so nice seeing this date. “1312”. Anyone want to share share 4D? Hehee… So what the point of this post? I think that national service is still important and a must for all Singaporeans citizen. If really got time machine where i can reverse back time, i might want to give OCS a try or maybe remain as it is. Anyway, i would never never trade my pink I/C for a regular armed force lifestyle. That’s for sure. No doubt about that!

Kudos to all those that got back their Pink I/C on this particular “1312” date.
