How Do You Know If He Likes You

  1. He'll look at you, until you turn around, then boom, he's looking the other way.
  2. He may ask a friend of yours about you - he'll say it's just for "friend of mine" that wants to know about you.
  3. He talks to everybody else - but when you're around he turns silent, or chokes up.
  4. You seem to accidentally bump into him a lot of different places.
  5. He'll give you a little smile from across the room, but if you get near, he won't look up.
  6. DEAD Giveaway - when you talk to him he turns red.

And my explanation:

  1. He wasn't looking at was just your imagination. Too sensitive.
  2. He was paid $50 for helping his friend to ask about you.
  3. Maybe he doesn't like talking to you. It maybe due to your odour that is choking him.
  4. It was an accident.
  5. He was smiling at the girl beside you.
  6. He's having hypertension. Give him some space to breathe.

How Do You Know If She Likes You

  1. She gazes in your eyes with deep interest and her pupils are dilated.
  2. Her skin tone becomes red while being around you.
  3. She winks at you while talking to you or winks at you from a distance.
  4. She starts sitting straight up and her muscles appear to be firm.
  5. She laughs in unison with you.
  6. In a crowd she speaks only to you and focuses all of her undivided attention on you.

And my explanation:

  1. She is trying a new method of self-hypnotism using you as a tool.
  2. You've radiated too much heat thinking that she likes you causing her to get skin burns.
  3. Something just got into her eyes...could be dust.
  4. She's just scared of you. Leave the room and she'll be fine.
  5. She was laughing at her friend's joke...not yours.
  6. She is complaining to you about how hard her day was.

A Singlish Poem

I used to be in NJ,
A place where 03S21 was.
However, I am now in NS,
A place where all the Sergeants are.


I used to be in the Symphonic Band,
where all we did was practice and play.
However, I am now in NS,
where all I did is scrubbing kennels and drains.


My guy-friends are all in NS,
where we experience a spectrum of tekan-ing.
My girl-friends are all in Uni,
where they experience a spectrum of mugging.


So what do we do after NS?
Well the path would be different for different individuals.
Some may proceed on to Uni while others may want to work and a few choose to start a family.


As for me...
It's the Uni route that I will take.

Dog Platoon - Alert and Steadfast

The day has finally arrived. I don't know if I should be happy or sad. Happy because I wouldn't be scrubbing kennels and drains anymore. Sad because I will leave my friends and colleagues.

I came to the Dog Platoon in July. Things have been a roller coaster ride since then.

I can still remember the times when our ICs (In-charge) would rush us to scrub the white tiles of the kennels. For your information...the white tiles that we scrub contains a myriad of bacteria and germs. They come mainly from the waste material excreted by our canine friends. The dogs will just step on their own *ahem* and jump around their kennel...resulting in brown stuff on the white tiles.

Then there was this case where the drains had green moss due to a surplus of nitrates from the waste excreted by the dogs. So it's not surprising that green moss flourish there. So...we were told to scrub off the green moss from the drain. I tell you it's not times the angle just isn't right...making scrubbing difficult. But's our job to scrub.

It's not always drains and waste in Dog Platoon. There were fun times too. For example there was this unofficial Chinese Chess competition with Teo as the reigning champion. Then there was Sports Day where we played soccer with our seniors.

Even though the work is terrible (imagine scrubbing the walls of a room with waste - both liquid and solid form - all over), but the people there are nice and friendly (well at least most of them are).

Now...I am officially out of Dog Platoon as I have been posted to another place (HQ RSAF). Well I heard that life there is much more pleasant...both to the eyes and nose. was weird in the sense that my friends was sad that I was leaving. However they were happy that O was leaving too as he's blur...very blur (he can even do his clearance properly).

Haiz...I will sure miss them.

Alert and Steadfast
