A call came from a rather excited John (aka yohn) early this week telling me that the “remaining” oakleys we’ve ordered are in already from shipment. Finally! so as I thought. We actually intended to drop by yesterday, but Lt Jason, our “sales rep cum oakley order slave” was on leave, so it was called off. We were crazy enough to think of collecting it next week, but as all crazy people we are, its like aRgH can’t survive without oakleys! MusT get oakleys! So, the sooner the better & we decided to drop by at 6pm (today) to camp to collect it, not do I know at the last minute that yohn’s free for the afternoon, bringing the appointment forward. A trip down to camp at 1pm was planned thereafter. Yohn drove into camp in his dad’s Lexus RX300 which sadly was running out of gas too, due to yohn’s heavy foot/flooring tendencies… We got a free ATC aniversary alarm clock cum raido from cheah who was distributing them to the troopers in the ops room. Caught up with few of the troopers who were rather amazed to meet us again. Not to mention our own troopers too, a show-stopper you may say. We had “lunch” at the AHQ canteen, savoring & remembering our old days in camp eating canteen food – Unhealthy chicken cutlet rice…. yum!
Looking at the pile back at home, this must be the biggest purchase I’ve ever got from Oakleys. With 3 pairs at-a-go (M-frame, Half-jacket, Half-wires) plus a D3 watch & extra M-frame/Half-jacket lenses, not to mention array ballistic cases as well. Though you may think that I’ve spent a fortune on these, on the contray by purchasing this through the Oakley- Military, Government & Law enforcement agency scheme, (which my whole company did) you can get the original goods at 1/2 to 1/3 the retail prices outside with full warranties, support & packaging. The only limitations are the colours offered: tactical black ones only – my favorite! So you can say that I got all these for the average price of one oakley sunglass in-shop, or how can you put it? Say…. call it 3-for-1? or like how Canadian Pizza like to put it: 2-for-1.
