The hustle and bustle of the city, the sights and the sounds of the heartlands, the day and night activities of the citizens.. Everything seems to be so distant from this foreign island.
An island, although not far from mainland Singapore, yet I am shut out from the latest happenings, the beautiful cityscape, the close relations and the place I belong the most.
But as I observe this unfamiliar landscape, I realise that itâ€™s a time to meet new people, tread upon new grounds, wear new uniforms, and listen to new instructions.
I need to fulfill my duty, to defend this land.. So that the hustle and bustle of the city, the sights and sounds of the heartlands, the day and night activities of the citizens, can still remain in this peaceful nation.
“What we lack in numbers, we will make up for in quality: in the standards of discipline, dedication and leadership.” -Lee Kuan Yew
