Dead Boring Stuff

Ok, I am back again...

... This time with two videos (not porn if that is what you are thinking of)

Officer Cadet School Song Video - I made this for my friend initially, he is die hard about going to OCS. So good luck to him.

Standard Obstacle Course Video - I made this for those who are enlisting soon, and wondering what/how the hell the SOC looks like and what those obstacles are called.

Video are not totally "made" by me, please refer to the credits for more information.

...Oh well, that's all with the good ol' boring stuff.

Now back to UniformGirl's post.

Hi! Thats a pretty cool video about the Standard Obstacle course. It will defintely help all those that are going to be enlisted. Haha. I guess they will hate SOC once they start doing it. Pretty cool blog bout the army. NICE nIce!

Mein gott! That brings back so many memories. Hilarious, the passing out parade... seems that even later generations can't get the kiri pusong right.

haha...while it's cool that you guys put up the SOC video, PLEASE LAH! people doing SOC, WHERE GOT SO FRESH LOOKING?

Nahbeh, the soldiers in the video look fresh as daisies, lah! See how straight they hold their rifles? Nahbeh cheebye! Surely got some dude ask them to do the obstacles one by one, lah!

Real SOC = everyone tired as fuck, rifles all over the place, then got one pui pui CMI dude behind, still trying to clear the low wall, while an officer holds his SBO and shouts, "KANINA PRIVATE PUI PUI! YOU CAN MAKE IT! COME ON!"

I wanna see THAT vid, man...damn funny.

Regards,
J

...erm, lol

as in the start and the credit, it has written clearly that it is extracted from a MINDEF video...

so i can't really do much about it...

heh heh...

Haha, SOC in unit also has the people up there ensuring they pass the SOC by having the CMI soldier's friends run with him, pushing him, carrying his rifle for him. If still cannot, then got discount: water bottles empty and try again. For the really CMI, still further discount: they don't start the clock until he reaches the low wall.

alternatively, if the SOC window for the BUC isn't that close yet, you have soldiers running past the obstacles with many a backward glance to check the PTI isn't looking. ;-p

lun said...

hur. my platoon's best recruit was chionging for the best pt award, and he freaking sprinted on the balancing log. slipped and cracked his head on the log. in the end attend b and couldnt take part in POP with us. and anyway, i heard from a friend that there's no more soc test now. only FAM runs.

Haven't been to Tekong in yonks - has camp 1 and the alleged haunted jacob's ladder in the soc course behind it been torn down ?
