This is my second posting in a long long time and mainly cos i am stuck at camp doing DO duty at a truly G*d-forsaken camp far far away in the west..it is already my second day at camp and by the end of these 48 hours all i credit myself to have accomplished are reading Straits Times back to back, a few sessions catching up with friends at the canteen, running the IPPT in the morning and clearing of 5 arm skotes..woo hoo...

Mind you when i first knew that i have reservist this fortnight i was actually pretty happy, the thought of being able to have some respite from work stress and the crowds at Suntec and to save money thanks to the delightful cook house offering nowadays was actually pretty appealing...but these happy thoughts soon dissipated after donning the uniform and realising how hot is it to be walking around in the heat and how your calves starts to itch where the boot gutters cuts into them after prolonged wear throughout the day...yes i have been irrevoccably urbanised! Thank goodness there are one or two working computers with access to (some) internet websites where one can still reach out to the rest of world.

The only shopping venue at camp is the happy e-mart where the 'gar-ment' allocates about $200 credit to you every 2 years to allow you to buy uniforms, shoes etc...i wonder if they have upgraded any new New Balance shoes of late?

Tonight will be one of those v rare nights i would probably be sleeping sub-11pm...not quite a holiday retreat but this reservist stint would probably be v restful!

And the Sun shine bright in a clear blue sky and all is bright and ...

You are The Sun

Happiness, Content, Joy.

The meanings for the Sun are fairly simple and consistent.

Young, healthy, new, fresh. The brain is working, things that were muddled come clear, everything falls into place, and everything seems to go your way.

The Sun is ruled by the Sun, of course. This is the light that comes after the long dark night, Apollo to the Moon's Diana. A positive card, it promises you your day in the sun. Glory, gain, triumph, pleasure, truth, success. As the moon symbolized inspiration from the unconscious, from dreams, this card symbolizes discoveries made fully consciousness and wide awake. You have an understanding and enjoyment of science and math, beautifully constructed music, carefully reasoned philosophy. It is a card of intellect, clarity of mind, and feelings of youthful energy.

It happens just about once every year and whenever i get that green envelope with that perforated portion to be returned to sender i wince...otherwise known as the SAF100.

This time round, the reservist period was a lot shorter than expected, 8 days to be exact vs the usual 2 plus weeks...what i dread about it is not just the fact that i have to don the green fatigues and charge up hills (i dun anyway :)) but knowing also the absence from work would mean a backfill awaiting me 8 days later with no covering officer.

But still..on the bright side, it is the autumn season for this unit's reservist cycle and i can cross my fingers in hope i dun get recycled again...officers tend to suffer that tragic fate esp when i have yet to clock in my minimum quota of cycles.

I must say that the in-camp unit is a lot more enlightened and PR than when i last went in...as we "checked" in we were greeted with teh-o and kopi-o vats with a "Welcome Drinks" signage on it and lunch was also greeted with "Welcome Lunch" signages. I half expected smiley army personnel escorting us to our seats.

Beyond the typical lectures and orders for the day...the bright note is being able to meet up with frens for reunions and our usual talk-cock sessions...as usual you swear the most whenever you don green.

You Are Likely a First Born

At your darkest moments, you feel guilty.
At work and school, you do best when you're researching.
When you love someone, you tend to agree with them often.

In friendship, you are considerate and compromising.
Your ideal careers are: business, research, counseling, promotion, and speaking.
You will leave your mark on the world with discoveries, new information, and teaching people to dream.
