BOOTCAMP-TERMS & JARGONS

.

When I first joined the Original Bootcamp in October 2009, I was confused. While happily doing to the pushup during one of the circuit train, Sarge Sim commanded STEADY!!!! ... huh, proudly I thought he was complimenting how steady my forms were. I pushed myself and wanted to show a better form. Then I heard a command IN-POSITION.. 3, 2, 1..... I was still doing the push-up... and my muscle was already screaming!!!

Whenever you hear the word STEADY!!! it means STOP !!

and everytime the word IN-POSITION was called.. it means... GET READY!!!

Unbeknown that I was supposed to stop on the scream STEADY, I continued with the pushups without any break and stopped when my muscles were too exerted before any STEADY screamed. As a result, the platoon was punished with 10 Grunts. It is imperative for every recruits to understand a command or references on jargons.

OBC-MAY 2/12: THE CAGE PART 2

.

28 April 2010. Its the CAGE!!!!! On second session in May Bootcamp!!! The last session with the cage was on 7 April 2010 (see: Cage). We never expected to have the Cage so soon but today was all about the Cage!

Today was extra special, we had the Cage, the mud, flooded field and a Cardio punishment for AWOLS. There were 6 AWOLs.. but I can only recall 5; namely Vivien Luyen Ow, Ilyanna Ayob, Syazana Amran, Amy Ho and Danial Ismail. For that, we had 3 laps of run-around-the-carpark and 30 TRUSTERS as a punishment. It was an excellent but exhaustive cardio punishment.

There were Sarge Sim, Corporal Sarge Faizal Ariff Abdullah and Lans Corporal Hafiz Omar supervising us with the Cage. Unlike the previous Cage-Session, there were no Strap today but it was equally as masochist.

OBC-APR 12/12: FRIENDS THAT GREW INTO PARTNERSHIP

.

Saturday 24 April 2010. I missed two sessions at KL Alpha when I had to attend the Allianz Conference in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah but I had one session replaced at KL Charlie. I was suppose to attend another session at KL Charlie today but I did not..... What would be more important than to break my 7 full months of perfect and consistent attendance for fitness and health?

I missed that last  session to learn and understand why the Bootcamp is the best place to surrender and gained stamina, strength and speed in athlete performance or lost fat and gain lean physique for others. I attended the personalised Malaysia Bootcamp Academy which was equivalent to more than the 1 session missed at KL Alpha (so... ACE council... spare me the punishment... can?).

THE ORIGINAL BOOTCAMP MALAYSIA IS EXPANDING!!!

*******************************************************************************



When I first joined the Bootcamp, there were only 2 training locations available. One at Padang Merbuk in Kuala Lumpur and the other location is at Padang Astaka, Petaling Jaya. I chose to train at Padang Merbuk because of logistic and Padang Merbuk's reputation for being a 'hardcore' and the damn serious bunch.

COMPANIES COMMISSION MALAYSIA / SURUHANJAYA SYARIKAT MALAYSIA

.

22 April 2010, Kuala Lumpur. This morning, for the first I visited the Companies Commission Malaysia (CCM) (Suruhanjaya Syarikat Malaysia) to learn how to incorporate an Enterprise. I took the initiative to have a first hand experience to train and educate my Fasfik Supervisors in setting-up their first business (an enterprise) to be an entrepreneur. Those qualified Supervisors were offered to be an Authorised Operator of Fasfik's outlets that is already establish, equip with the necessary equipments and ready for business without any renovation cost and any capital outlay to buy equipments. For the supervisor to operate Fasfik outlets, Fasfik will sign agreement with the Supervisors whom were required to set-up an 'enterprise'.

I reached the CCM at KL Sentral 9:20am and at the ground floor (level 1), the reception gave me a PNA 42 form  to obtain CCM's approval for the business Trade-Name. Applicants do not need to seek CCM's approval if the business is registered…

OBC-APR 10/12: ITS NOT JUST ABOUT RUNNING..

.

Its coming to the end of April bootcamp session. Its amazing how fast time flies. In less than a week, I would have exercised @ the bootcamp, constant and consistently for 7 months.

Although it will be 7 months soon... The sessions at the bootcamp is as intense as ever. The circuit and exercise programs prepared for every session is carefully planned and organised... All I have to do, is to wake-up early, drive and surrender myself to the program. The stamina and physique will slowly and naturally developed.

Having attended 76 bootcamp sessions thusfar..... I am very pleased with all the circuit programs prepared and I am very dependant on Sarge Simran's method of instructing.... Somehow, he can reach out to bring the best out of any recruit.

ALLIANZ FRANCHISE CONVENTION 2010

.

OBC- APR 8/12: DROPPING DEAD @ KL CHARLIE

.

17 April 2010. Since I've join the Bootcamp in October last year, I have successfully attended every session at KL Alpha every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 5:45am to 6:45am. I have never been late too and I am sad to break my 7 months record when I missed two sessions last Wednesday 14 April and Friday 16 April to attend the Allianz Franchise convention at Kota Kinabalu. Under the ACE-pact, if I failed to attend all twelve sessions in a month, the ACE-council will dress me in any outfit they deemed fit!! With Shobha Bala DBK, Luyen Ow and others in the house... It spells Nightmare to me!!!

Thus, to avoid any extra trouble and unnecessary sleepless night for these people, I went to KL CHARLIE to replace and redeemed my two days absenteeism.

Sessions at KL CHARLIE are held every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at 5:45am to 6:45am... I went for the session on Saturday, 17 April 2010 together with Nawal Aini Zulkifli, Lizza Abdul Rahim and Farrah Ibrahim. The Saturday was the BA…

PROTON EDAR 2010 DEALERS CONVENTION & PEDA ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING 2010

12 APRIL 2010, One World Hotel. Proton Edar held its annual dealer's convention attended to by all Proton Edar dealers and sales branches throughout Malaysia (including East Malaysia). Guests arrived as early as 7am to avoid the morning horrendous traffic.



The Convention began with Proton Managing Director Yg Bhg Dato Syed Zainal Abidin's opening remark.. It was too long to be called a speech. When Dato Syed Zainal first came to Proton, Dato Syed called upon all dealers and stake-holders to support him. Dato Syed inherited a legacy of endless flaw with more than 40,000 units of unsold ex-stocks despite at least RM3000 overtrade/bulk discount per car thrown to the market.

Last year, Proton's sales increased by more than 10,000 units despite the recession. For the first time in my 13 years as a dealer, there were no car-dumping to dealers when Proton Edar Financial Year ended end of last month. So if anybody were to ask me how Proton performs? I will ask them to interpret th…
