OBC- MAC 12/12: THE FINALE....... ANOTHER 100% ACE!!


Thats it.... another month of ONE HUNDRED PERCENT ATTENDANCE, COMMITMENT & EFFORT (100% ACE)!!! Six full month of ACE!! I mean........ six consistent month of never missed, never AWOL and never late for the Bootcamp training. Not just me........  alongside with a few other fellow comrades too, in March the ACE-rs are my Sot Sot Jor partner Chun Chia Kai SSJ, Farhanah Bamadhaj, Roslizza Abdul Rahim, Azman Zizal and Tomi Soetjipto and Sandy Roberts.... did I miss anybody?

But the best part is......... on the next celebration, we have Syed Mahadzir Syed Manshor (February Ace-fail), Aisan Lim, Danny Quest & Ana Kassim to be dressed in an outfit chosen by the ACE council.. the ACE council comprised of all the past and current ACE achievers. Click here for the ACE Hall of Fame.

Err.. that reminds me.. I have not updated the February 2010 Hall of ACE.. which I am doing so at this very moment.

We arrived at the Padang Merbuk feeling all charged up perhaps from the thought of completing a whole month full of ACE and was not the least bothered wondering what was in store for our training today. However, the thought quickly changed upon sighting all the tools & toys laid for our training that comprised of big huge ropes, humongous tyres, sandbags, mock rifles....

Our instructors today were Sarge Simran, Corporal Faizal Ariff Abdullah and Corporal Elin Klemetsen Fossum.

There were 6 AWOLS... we had Amy Ho, Consuela, Danial Ismail, Udo Reinhardt, Nadia Tajuddin and Brenda Buing. For every AWOL, the platoon will pay with 10 grunts per AWOL and the total should be 60 grunts but Sarge Simran gave us a last-session 33.33% discount... we had to do 40 Grunts instead.

There were 31 recruits altogether and the platoon were divided into two teams namely the Guns and the Rifle with an equal mixture of Delta, Seal and Ranger. I was in team Rifle together with Chun Chia Kai SSJ, Farhanah Bamadhaj, Aisan Lim, Nikki, Elona (spell?), Natassya Lee, Siew Peng, Rienna Choo, Tomi Soetjipto, Sarah Stone, Rosliza Abdul Rahim, Suriana Saiful, Sharine (spell??), Yash Qasim and Sandy Roberts.

Both team Rifle and Guns had to carry 5 Mock Rifles, 5 Sandbags, one huge rope and 3 bagpacks. The race began with the team running together in a group for 30 meters to an uphill route. The team had to compete in speed without leaving any weaker members behind. The loser will have to performed 30 Grunts as punishment.

There were 3 major challenges during the race... The first being the uphill and downhill route which was taxing to the knee as well as heart-throbbing. Second, the run with the tools & toys, and finally, running and supporting the weaker member. With a mixture of Delta, Seal and Ranger, there was a gap between the fittest and the less fit member but the support from everybody ensured the gap was filled.

In an excellent show of team spirit or madness, the crazy delta Chun SSJ took 5 sandbags away from the Rangers and ran carrying all the five Sandbag but towards the finale, the SSJ took the big mother of rope all to himself and sprinted away (it takes at least 5 person to carry and run with the rope)

Another Delta, Sandy Roberts, kept bouncing back from the front to the last and back to the front and up and down to support our team. The grey T' shirt cum red, Sarah Stone too keep bouncing back and forth and 'supported' me by giving a sandbag over and above the 12kg Backpack that I was carrying.. thank you Sarah Stone.

All the team spirit and support was well worth it when we ended-up with an additional 30 Grunts for reaching the finishing line before the Guns. Just when we thought we were 30 Grunts richer.... Team Guns was given 10 Grunts extra when Danny Quest, one of their team member went MIA (missing in Action).

We ended the March session being 20 Grunts richer and 712 calories burn!!! I hope to see everybody in April!! and I cant wait to start training with Dr Malek Aziz, Nawal Aini Zulkifli, Shobha Bala, Wai Yee Chan, Kenix Lim, Leesa Tan, Suloshini Jahanath..  whom FFK in March but will be back in April.....

There is no better birthday gift for a father whom already have everything from love, jeweleries, cars and wealth but a nice short autobiography blog to say that he is always being remembered, we are very proud of him and also for his next many generations to remember him by.

LOOKING FOR A CAR WORKSHOP? This Local App Will Find One That Won't Overcharge You

Looking for a reliable car workshop is not an easy feat in Malaysia. Many car workshops are known for overcharging and providing poor quality parts.
Image via Auto World Remember the last time you were overcharged for a repair? Yeah, me too.
The good news is you don't have to fret anymore! Car Bengkel, a local app set up in collaboration with the Malaysia Automotive Institute (MAI), aims to help motorists survive this ultimate road challenge.
