Golden Rooster @ Balestier

I had initially thought that the Golden Rooster @ Balestier was good, as recommended by 'Makan Places Lost and Found'.
I have decided to finally try it yesterday.
I ordered the Happiness Plate which includes a drumstick, full wing, breast, bun and fries, all for $5.
Apparantly, the taste and testure was only a so-so.
Given the choice, KFC still rocks!

Revoltech King Gainer - Overman

I was going through my regular online toy scouting,
when I cam across this Revoltech King Gainer Overman.
It captured my attention and immediately soaked my taste buds!!
Along the same line, three different Evangelion robots and some Getter bots were released.
I liked the series for the customizability and accessories.
But never put my heart to buying it because of the factory quality painting and details.
But I swear that my opinion changed the very moment I saw the King Gainer Overman!
Despite not having watched the anime prior, I am so captivated by the design.
So for a merer 1900yen, $ $ for it!

3rd ICT - Field Report

The 3rd ICT just ended today with a remedial training (RT) for IPPT failures.
An amazing number of 160+ personnels participated the RT session.
It was tiring but fun, though we didn't get the privilege of out-processing earlier.

The first day was a briefing and an IPPT test.
The second was IMT.
The third day was the actual live-firing 100m range.
While the last day (today), was a battalion games day and RT session.

I was also quite surprised when I won myself a 'Best Soldier' award.
I had received one during my service time, thus making this my second.
Now I know why I was made Battery IC during range day!
