Lazy – I like!

So what to do in this humid sunday afternoon… Its JAVA MADNESS again, and there I was downloadin’ tons of freeware java midlets of the net. And there was the 2 dictionaries, (one Webster one.. whee) to name afew: a thesaurus, 20+ new games, scheduler, pda functions, movie and image viewers, email cilents, first aid manuals, references, vocab/graphing tool and mobile internet browsers… whew! and all these took up nearly 12MB on my phone’s storage space. I think when the Siemens SX1 phone is released, I would consider upgrading to a 1GB MMC flash card.

On top of that, my dad kinda went like DIY crazy and just replaced literally everyroom lamp and switch in the house (he had been planning… with his arsenal of tools and parts, todays sadly d-day), with the mains down for that, it kinda interupted my net access for the day, (not to mention the food warming and bacterial built-up in the fridge) And Mmm, the place do seem cleaner and brighter now, but I think it could mainly due to the freakin stained lamp old covers that seem to previously cast more shadows than light around the house…

Lazy sunday, shit! monday’s tomorrow, work-day, bike public road riding test… arghh!

New unit vocational posting

Posted by Shaun at 8:44 pm under Thoughts | 5286 Reads | 1 Comment
*grumbles* Didn’t know sewing my CPL rank sewing on my uniform could be such a pain, so many sets to do…. Anyway, the new vocational postings are out and this time the posting’s gonna be permanent- one which will last for my 2 remaining years of national service till I ORD *Yeaaa.. freedom, end of army life*. I would be tied down with the armor unit- notoriously & largely rumored around this unit, their training are actually quite *eek* demanding…. *ponders for awhile* So, what can a man do but gear up and be prepared for some tough training… ahead!Damn its inevitable! Well at least I won’t need to put up with long travelling times and dumb ferry trips to pulau tekong anymore, as my camp is situated mainland.

Till then, it would be one week till you will hear from me, whats next? first impressions at the camp? woot!

Food for thought: *ouch* hope the scald on my hand heals soon… would be more careful when making nissin cupnoddles again… *duh, careless me!*

I wish upon an excavator… & bulldozer!

Posted by Shaun at 12:15 pm under Thoughts | 818 Reads | Post Comment
Last week seems to be a very short week, very much shorter than usual. Whoosh its the weekend again and here I am typing this blog again. As I can remember with this clogged head and aching limbs of mine, heres what I have to share at camp.

And yea, so there was the outfield defense exercise for my company last week, namely manual digging, shoveling and lots of digging all day, all day… all into the night with my buddies, dig dig dig, so bad that even our enigneer gloves all start wearing out with holes, with aches and fatigue all over. Yes, it was really long, not to mention the complete lack of sleep the whole last 50 hours and the nightmare of carrying a 20kg++ heavy field pack cum signal set back to camp with the attack squad go for tens of kilometers, (being luckily appointed as general purpose machine gun commander.. *duh*) its one load that even your hands will start going numb after hours of “choinging” (rushing).

And so when the excercise ended it was company happy hour at club Chevrons @ jurong east. It was a miracle that everybody can set set their eyes open after 2 straight days of deprived sleep, talking about the zombies of resident evil… Had a dinner buffet, clubbed alittle club’s disco pub, the free flow of beer was delightful, though I still prefered the much conservative fruit punch. Sat around for a few round of pool and slacked for a few round of Daytona, Time crisis II, Tokyo wars and DDR at the local game arcade before heading home for a much needed rest. And just when the week could end happily, the stupid dial-a-coke drink vending machine refused to work for me… so much for that, there goes my phone bill…

The Net

Posted by Shaun at 1:24 am under Thoughts | 1069 Reads | Post Comment

Channel I just screened the movie, “The Net”, though quite an old show (1995) it is really a very interesting one depicting what can go wrong in the world of the internet- a very unique idea indeed. Thumbs up to that show!
