"Training to be soldier
Fight for our land
Once in our lives
2 years of our time
Have you ever wondered?
Why must we serve?
Because we love our land "
I can't call myself the most patriotic person but if you are looking for a guy that have something good to say about his life in the army, I will tell you I am your man. I did try my best to get into command school which I didn't manage to because of my not-so-strong physique. I got myself posted to school of Signal and became a signaler and later spent my active days in the army as a signaler. I must say that those days are one of the most interesting and fun days of my life. You can't find another chance to stay in a room with 9 other men doing
Although there's a lot of things in the Army that I believe we can see significant improvement but there's one thing I have to give it to SAF and that is our beloved SAF No.4.

1. It is WRINKLE FREE
2. It is the most comfortable (Pyjamas)
|Not as sexy but okay.|
3. POCKETS POCKETS POCKETS!!
Do you know how many pockets are there on our no.4? Not 1, not 2, not 3,4,5,6 but 10 in total. 4 on our top and 6 on our pants. You have no clue how convenient that is and it's not even ugly or make you look stupid. Can you imagine your how ugly will your shirt or pants be if there's 10 pockets?
So how do we usually use these pockets?
- Left Side Pants Pocket - Jockey Cap
- Right Side Pants Pocket - Power Bank
- Right Ass Pants Pocket - Wallet
- Left Ass Pants Pocket - Empty
- Right Pants Pocket - Handphone
- Left Pants Pocket - Bunk Keys
- Left Chest Pocket - Black Note Book + Pen
- Right Chest Pocket - Empty
- Bottom Left Shirt Pocket - 11B (For easy scanning at Cook House)
- Bottom Right Shirt Pocket - Car Keys
See! We practically kept more things on our body over a woman's clutch.
4. You don't have to wash it daily
Okay, to be honest, some people smells really bad in their sweaty no.4 but generally you do not need to have 5 sets of no.4 just for 1 week of activity in camp. The golden rule is 1 set for office and admin work and 1 set for anything dirty. So basically we rotate two sets of no.4 uniforms. We just air it or febreze it. It's that simple. Try that with your usual work clothes and you might just get fired for that.
There you have it, that's the 4 reasons why I love my no.4. For those who are unfamiliar, basically why it is known as the number 4 is simply because it is a numbering system of uniform. Instead of calling it the "green one" or the "office shirt", we do it with a numbering system. I was trying to find the different uniform but i guess it's not properly uploaded thus I didn't managed to find it off google but I remember reading it off pioneer magazine before.
Anyway, since I am away for reservist you probably gonna see less of me online. Not sure if that's good news for you but here's a music to keep you entertained while I'm away. (Also, totally doing it under the influence of my #BBFF
