Owhmygawd!!!!! Is this for real? Are we really having the platoon challenge? Really? Oh my God, Oh my God, Oh my God... I am so excited........... err.... err what is the platoon challenge?

Platoon challenge is a special event organised to foster the spirit of camaraderie between recruits from all platoons. Most of the time, recruits only interact with their fellow platoon mate without any opportunity to meet recruits from other platoons. During the platoon challenge, recruits irrespective of rank; range, seal and delta would have to work together and win points for their platoon this does inevitably promote team-work effort as well.

When Senior Sarge Rob Coad, the Regional master Trainer & Spec Ops Coodinator for the ORIGINAL BOOTCAMP, Australia first mooted the idea in 2009, we at the KLA platoon went wild. We had our first Platoon Versus platoon in January 2010 and I was unanimously elected as the Captain for the KLA Platoon. That was when KLA was part of the same 20 years old network under the ORIGINAL BOOTCAMP, Australia and I was only a recruit. Now KLA is running an independant program on its own. As the Captain, I had the best time planning, coordinating, training, strategizing and led our platoon to win the first Platoon Versus Platoon 2010. This year I cannot be the Captain nor a participant. Maybe a punishment for sleeping with the instructor!? aiiks... Read HERE for Platoon Versus Platoon 2010 and get some idea of what to prepare.

So who are the captains chosen to lead the platoon?

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.

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.
