Assalamualaikum. It has been a tragic week for me. A lot of things happen in camp, some to me individually, and some to the rest of my platoonmates. I booked in on last Sunday at 8.30p.m as usual. Never thought that such thing could happen to me. Gosh!
On Tuesday evening, someone was caught smoking. Unfortunately, that guy is from my platoon. Shiish! Ring! A call for punishment. We had a changing parade. Luckily, we nly had to change twice because we manage to change into the requested attire within the time limit. Tiring. This is the 3rd time of which my platoonmates are caught smoking. What a luck!
On Wednesday, we had Wheel Stretcher practical. Unfortunately, I was chosen to be the first four rescuer. It sucks! Of all people, I was chosen. The four of us have to rescue the our platoonmates. Once rescued, they will help us. Stupidly, I continued to save till the last men while the other first three rescuer were already sitting on the bench, resting. Thank you to those who creditted for my good rescue and thank you for commending for my vocation as a MEDIC. Not bad, but after hearing the gory stories from my platoon commander regarding medic's job scope, I am actually taken aback. Oh ya, also to my platoon commander, thank you for the special mention at the end of the lesson of being the most hardworking rescuer. Though tiring, it was enjoyable actually.
On Thursday, it was the worst of all. After lunch, when I came back from the cookhouse, Dennise called for me..."Hey Izwan! Hurry up, check your locker for anything missing! It was pried open" What? Pried open? At that moment when I saw my dented locker door, I roughly knew that something is missing because the dent was really bad. It was in a state where you can actually see inside my locker and take anything from it. Panic! Panic! My handphone was there but my wallet was missing. Checked again! Yes, it was stolen. Confirmed. Nawawi called the platoon sergeant. My heart was thumping real fast. Luckily, the handphone I brought to camp was an old one and not my new W880i. Soon, my company Captain came and asked me what happened. I think, in that same day, I have to repeat telling people what happened for more that 10 times. Captain Segar asked me to inform my platoon commander as soon as possible. They had to check everyone's lockers in my platoon. I have to check like 40 lockers in total and it feels bad to take out everything from my platoonmates locker and search for my missing wallet. Ooh, some of the lockers stink! Disgusting. Then went up to storey 5 to check PES BP's locker. I got a lecture from their platton commander and one of ther instructor. It is not as if I want my stuffs to get missing and it was not my mistake for the unlock bunk's door. i wasn't the last one to leave the bunk and on top of all, I wasn't the bunk I.C. I just cannot be bothered by that sucky PC and that fat, ugly instructor. After dinner, I was called to the Captain's office. He apologised for the case. I was just thinking, "Why must it be mine?" The he suggested to check thouroughly at the basement as well as the other parts of the block to see if that stupid culprit threw away my wallet after squandering that haram
money. Some of my platoonmates offered to help. Thank you so much to Allan, Dennise, Aminuddin, Hafiz, Melvyn, Lutfi, Lestaluhu and Wei Jie. We combed through the whole block and luckily, Allan found it at the Dry Rising Hose Outlet. It was behind the door that hides the water hose. I was still at the basement at that point of time and when Dennise informed me about this good news, I just ran up and that was the first time I ran up the stairs with all my might and was the first to reach the 3rd floor. The investigation is still being carried on. I really hope the culprit will be caught one day. I am so relieved that it could be retrieved because my driving license, EZ-Link card, POSB Card and other important and stuffs with sentimental value was inside my wallet. On top of all, it was my wallet, my DKNY wallet. My platoonmates were worried over my DKNY wallet and not its content. Me too guys. Thank you so much to my platoon commander, LTA Asyraf as well as my OC, Captain Segar. I am so sorry for all the trouble. Actually there's more to be told, but I'll just save it as a personal memory. Biarlah Rahsia
Here, I would also like to congaratulate my company for emerging champions in 2 out of 3 games tournament. Basketball and Soccer. Just like what I thought earlier and told my platoonmates before the games started, you will see that the company will be separated intow two. The Malays will go to the soccer field while the Chinese will go to the basketball court. True enough, it really happened. Hahahahaha... Strange!
Other than this, I would like to wish all the best to my companymates and myself for the footdrill competition this Friday. This is what that has been keeping me busy this weekend. So sorry to my mum, can't really celebrate Mother's Day with her, but I will clean the house and let you rest today.
Happy Mother's Day. It has been a while since I post an entry in Malay. So in conjunction with Mother's Day, I would like to do so.
Dengan serendah-rendahnya diri yang bernama anak ini, ingin mengambil kesempatan untuk mengucapkan Selamat Hari Ibu kepada semua insan yang bernama ibu. Memang patut hari ini kita raikan bersama kerana ianya adalah suatu peringatan kepada pengorbanan ibu yang tiada berbelah bagi buat kita yang bergelar anak. Mungkin ramai di antara kita yang menyayangi teman-teman kita ataupun teman istimewa yang sering menemani. Mereka perlu dihargai tetapi tidak sehebet mana penghargaan yang perlu kita berikan buat ibu kita. Hanya satu insan di dunia ini yang layak digelar ibu kita. Dia, yang bersabung nyawa ketika melahirkan kita di dunia ini. Merana tidak terkata selama sembilan bulan lamanya, hanya untuk mengandungkan kita. Jadi, sesamalah kita ingat jasa mereka dan hargailah mereka selagi kita diizinkan oleh Tuhan untuk berbuat demikian. Sempena Hari Ibu ini, saya ingin mengambil kesempatan ini untuk memperindahkan lagi hari ini dengan berkongsi dengan anda lagu kegemaran saya yang secara kebetulan menceritakan tentang pengorbanan seorang ibu.
Aku hanya menduga
Tidak mampu merasa
Pengorbanan yang kau lakukan
Hanya bisa ditanggung hati IBU
Telah kau telan lara
Dan terima segala
Dugaan dan badai yang melanda
Airmata Ibu, Datuk Siti Nurhaliza, E.M.A.S
