growing up sucks cause after finding out that the world has all gone to shit, and all you have to and can do is to find a little corner of the world where you can find your peace and live there, I am thoroughly dissatisfied. fuck that, I am definitely going to fuck some shit up before I die.

what the enlistment letter really looks like

Jul. 1st, 2011 | 08:21 pm

Dear Slave,

Congragulations on reaching what could be the most exciting stage of your life. We are duly about to destroy it for the next two years and you have no way out of this.

For most people, this part of your life would usually be an amazing period of self discovery, growth as an individual and a great time to explore yourself and the world around you. As a male Singapore Citizen however, this is going to be taken from you, and you will never be able to get this time back. We pride ourselves in establishing our amazing killjoy that is fascinating, enriching, enslaving and mandatory. Forget your hopes and dreams for just two years, because we really don't care if these two years could be the most important years of your life, that you could be the next donald trump or bill gates. Your hopes and dreams were never important in the first place, didn't we teach you that in school? Get with the program. 

We the government have convinced the people of Singapore of the effectiveness of turning every single man in the country into exemplary policemen, a firefighters, or soldiers, no matter who they are and where they came from. The people completely buy into this and strongly believe in the internal and external security of the nation, and you should too. No one escapes their fate with CMPB, and even though basically every man in this country has to do this, it's still a priviledge. Think about it, you will basically get to learn how much life really sucks before you even graduate from college! You will thank us later.

You will first have to endure three to five months of physical conditioning and 'training' prior to doing any actual work for us in your designated unit. (again, randomly chosen) This is where the whimps and fat kids get sorted out, and you will too. ;) Some folks even spend nearly the entire two years just training, for nothing! Amazing what we can do with you chaps. 

We will duly straighten you out, and mould you into whatever version of a soldier, a policeman or a firefighter we deem fit to get the most out of you. We will also pay you way worse than interns, by the way. The money we can afford on you is so little, we can't even call it 'pay,' it's called an allowance. (And also because we arn't exactly hiring you, we're forcing you to do this. The allowance is mandatory on our part. If we had it our way, you wouldn't even get an allowance.) And if you have a family to support, you can apply for financial assistance, but it takes really long because we rely on guys like you to do our bitchwork, remember? So you and your family will be broke for at least a couple months. Bear with it.

You may wish to prepare yourself to be open to generalization, because you are nothing but a number in our massive forces. Your service however, is very important to us, and we will hunt you down and destroy you if you try to ditch.

We acknowledge your nervousness and apprehension wih the fact that right now, there are men just like you who have gracefully accepted their fate as our slave for two years, with absolutely no problems. This has been going on for quite a while now and we have proof that it's working great for everyone. (A big kudos to "national education.")

We even have quite a number of you guys ending up joining us permanently after their service. Rest assured, this is not an abduction, we simply do not have enough manpower, so we're doing this the lazy way. No need for a Singaporean Uncle Sam, no good old fashioned recruitment drives. This is how powerful we are, and you have no say even if you think this isn't right. You will very soon be property of the government. Wait, in fact, you already are. You might as well sign up for this, because we can maybe give you a career in exchange for your life.

This we believe, is the most effective way of running the internal and external defence force. You are responsible for the safety of your country, whether you like it or not, whether you are capable of it or not, and whether you want to or not, you will contribute in one way or another. And so is that dude on the other street who killed your dog and crashed into your house as a result of his drink driving. He never got caught by the way, and he ended up being enlisted to the police force. He will soon be patrolling your streets. Oh, and you will also find out a week later that the guy from school who's a mad meth addict has been given the responsibility of being a fire fighter. Don't count on him the next time a policeman drives a car into your house and an explosion occurs. 

Enjoy your slavery.

Yours Sincerely,
The Government. 

p.s. please be reminded to resume assumption that every single policeman, soldier and firefighter can and will save you in times of need. we might have shaken you up quite a bit. Singapore is indeed, one of the safest places in the world.

 dont know whats gonna happen with my life but hasnt it always been that way? when have i ever known? 
i think i just gotta embrace not knowing, its rather fun. allows you to live a little. i hate plans, cause plans just mean deadlines... and it takes the life out of everything. i much prefer 'guidelines'.... no plans at all is fun but you can't have that all the  time, can you? even a coke addicts gotta have a guideline. score some cash, score some coke, shoot up and call it a day. that's a guideline. hahahaha. freedom is only freedom when there's a structure to begin with. something to mess with in the first place. you gotta have that something. and you have to fuck it up!!!!!!! :)

 yesterday's show was important to me on so many levels. 

it's not that it was our 'last show' or whatever. there was just something about it. i don't know what's going to happen to trella, and at this point, i finally don't give a fuck. and it feels good. it's fucking liberating, actually. sad, but liberating. and also somewhat safe; there's still a part of me that just knows that somehow, one way or another, we could always get back together and rock the fuck out again!

but even if this ending is 100% temporary, it still scared me in a way. cause of the mere existence of endings. last night was the perfect way to leave things with trella. could've been more perfect, i mean saf could have played for one, and i can name a gazillion things right now but i just didn't give a fuck. we left the night in the hands of what we could put together, and it couldnt have happened more perfectly.

leon's going off in literally a few more days. and then it'll be my turn in february. i don't know if im ready for that. it means leaving everything he's leaving, plus nik. that is going to take a heck of a lot of strength to do. i hope i have enough balls for this, cause it's going to need alot of it.

its not the government's fault that you suck.

May. 16th, 2011 | 05:08 pm


the real power in any country, or organization for that matter, always comes from the people. which is why i don't really care who leads the country. the thing about us though, in my opinion, is that we are such a young country that we the people have no idea how much power we all really have in all of this. now that the elections are over and gone, this is where positive change has to start. its still looking rather shitty now. i used to blame the PAP for their ridiculously strict policies, their 'no room to breathe' ways of doing things and their smothering us in government handouts and subsidies. but i'm starting to learn that the state we are in right now has more to do with the people, who just take, and take, and take, and take.

right from the get go, i always had difficulty understanding what democracy really meant. we're told we live in a democratic country, but to me it seemed like the general population of singapore is just so lazy, we'd all prefer it if we were a communist state. it's a pretty extreme way of thinking but that's just the way i saw it when i was like, 15. Oversimplified and ignorant, but come 2011, i still can't deny the fact that there really is some truth to this thinking.

to me right now, the reason for the general unhappiness i see in people who live here has less to do with the government and its policies, and more with the people and their attitude. in our defence though, it's not soley our fault for being a nation with a bad attitude, the government did have a part to play.

the PAP and its policies back then brought people out of their slums and into homes in the sky, jobs for everyone and schools everywhere. that's all fine and dandy, it had to be done, i think it was the only way to sort of bring us up to speed with the rest of the world that quickly. but fast forward four decades from there and it becomes clear that this really isn't the way to do things. at least not anymore. cause we still arn't even close.

my opinion is that handouts never have and never will work to bring progress to any country. it is not the government's job to make sure you've got a house, a job, a car, that your kids are in school or that your healthcare is taken care of. those are things we should be doing ourselves. the priviledges we have enjoyed these past few decades have become entitlements. we the people have been spoilt rotten. and that's where it starts to look like communism for me.

all i hear at rallies are people yelling for more and more of this stuff. more handouts, cheaper this, blah de fucking blah. the government is there to run the country, not solve every single one of their citizens' problems. what happened to our need for freedom of speech? or less control over the media? or the right to chew some fucking gum?? we've learnt to love how the government smothers us with their handouts so much that when the time comes to wake the hell up and do things on our own, all we can ask for is more handouts. which i find absolutely ridiculous. im not very good at analogies but to me its like, if you were in primary school, and it's time for recess, but everyone's begging the teacher to have another math lesson. and they keep saying stuff like "oh but she helps us during the math lesson, she gives us all the answers and stuff." ooo. big fucking deal. thats the wrong way to learn anyway. come on guys, get the hell out of the classroom!

as anti-establishment as i am, i honestly think government really wants to be the good guy here but the people just won't let it. or maybe i just have too much faith in people to begin with. singapore, we have proven how young and stupid we still are yet again.

what defines us becomes not what we hate and what we fear, but how we overcome those things. and sometimes its not just about overcoming it. its about being one with it. that's what love is, i suppose. loving what you dont know. that's all it takes.

freedom is a nasty word. you cant vote for freedom. other people's ideals forced onto you, even if it is freedom, is still a rule.

This guy is AWESOME. I have absolutely no idea why people (especially those who arn't exactly too thrilled with this whole 'national service' thing) are pissed off with this dude. We should be totally commending his bold move. We should admire his complete mockery of the armed forces and the idea of "national service" in general. This dude has balls. Instead of following the rules for fear of getting punished, this guy just doesn't seem to give a fuck! Now that's just fucking awesome. Why? Because rightfully, he shouldn't need to give a fuck in the first place.

I have never believed in conscripted armies, and this is the exact reason for that. No seriously, how the hell do you expect to take a bunch of civillians out of their lives and expect to get quality service out of these people?

I don't give a fuck, and I like not giving a fuck, I would like to live the rest of my life not giving a fuck, but I can't, because the singapore government thinks that by forcing guys to give a fuck, we would have a better Army, Police Force and Civil Defence.

I mean, props to the guys who actually do enjoy their service. I understand their frustration with this whole thing and actually respect these people for going all out doing shit they love. It's these guys who really keep the streets of Singapore safe. But what about the dudes who just hate this? I think it's pretty obvious that we're all just doing more harm than good with this whole NS thing. And it's not the sad & sorry NSFs that suffer, it's the common people who get a lousy Army, a lousy Police Force and lousy Civil Defence.
