Today, at around 6pm. The table was shaking. My sister looked at me.
"Must be me writing too hard," I said. But that wasn't true, as both our chairs began rocking gently. It was definitely a tremor.
Still, the house was shaking. In fact, the entire building was shaking.
Later this night, there was news. There was a strong earthquake in Indonesia. How nice was that?! It was the first time I ever experienced a tremor, although I do pity those people in Indonesia. I do hope there are no deaths though.
If there are deaths, then let's keep silent for a minute, shall we?
Last friday, for NCC, my whole flight was supposed to fly a toy aeroplane attached to a string for fun. The weather wasn't on our side, so we ended up doing drills instead. However we did have a lot of fun doing the drills. We had new staff sergeants, and our present staff sergeant wanted to tell how good they were, so he told us to do every single drill wrongly and adjust without permission. The first staff sergeant wasn't really good, all he did was shout "You think this is a joke is it?" and he only shouted once. We weren't allowed to do push-ups, so he made up do 40 sit-ups, and we started counting from ten. He told us to start counting from -60 all the way to 40, and we counted one sit up as 40 sit ups. Apparently he didn't care, and told us to recover.
Then our sirs came. We continued doing every drills wrongly, and we got punished by them although they knew that we were just testing whether the new staff sergeants were good...
After they left, we had another new staff sergeant. This one was more fierce, and we were told to screw up every drill again. He didn't punish us, actually, but shouted at us.
Yesterday, I went for my third and last trip to snow city along with Ming Wei, Thomas, Brandon, Cheryl Ong, Shiya and Carina.
So at first, Thomas, Brandon and I were waiting for Ming Wei to be done with his shower. After that we waited for the bus for more than 10 minutes. We went to Jurong Point, when we met Carina. We decided to go to snow city first. At the snow city, we met Cheryl and Shiya. We went to buy the tickets. I chose the wrong sweater (it did not have a hood). As a result my ears hurt a lot inside, so I spent most of my time outside.
We left an hour later, and wanted to have lunch. Ming Wei was rushing to go, so we ended up having lunch at the snow city itself. I ate only instant noodles... ... (it's the only food there that can keep you full)
After having lunch we decided to wander around at the Science Centre. It was amazing. They operated the Tesla Coil, with all the purple sparks everywhere. They attached two hydrogen balloons to the tesla coil, turn the tesla coil on, and the explosion was so powerful, I could feel the pressure on my chest despite the size of the balloons (simillar to that of a normal balloon). The rest of the exhibits weren't so fun though... ...
Well, I'm so looking forward to a chalet at the end of the year!
Today I went for a familiarisation flight at Paya Lebar Airbase. Funny how the school didn't say I was supposed to go to school first, therefore I went there straight...
The aircraft I entered was the C130 Hercules. Used to transport army people from one place to another. Quite noisy, therefore they provided ear plugs for free. Then we entered the plane. It wasn't really spacious, with the seats at the walls of the plane and extra seats in the middle of the plane. Quite squeezy, in fact, especially when other cadets want to move from one place to another in the cockpit. I chose the wrong seat, for the condensation from the air-conditioner kept dripping onto me (very irritating). Then there were these two boys from another school who were competing for one seat. In the end they shared the seat together... ... =D
Well, there's a problem with Blogger now even though I added a proxy server. Perhaps there's a problem with the cookies. Anyways, I shall end here.
