wtf is this?!

Removing fatalities from the game, and nerfing DC characters to match the Mortal Kombat ones.

With such lame compromises made just to let the two universes fit better, what's the point of releasing such a game?

I think it would be pretty cool to see a DC fighting game, but not like this!

The developers have thought up some creative gameplay ideas, and they've got professional comic writers to brew a story for the game, but still I feel that certain universes should just stay away from each other.

I have a bad feeling about this.

Hmm, not quite that bad...

After about 2 weeks in my new camp, I actually think it's pretty alright. I've found a faster and cheaper way to get there and the people there are real friendly i.e they don't "play ranks".

Although I didn't really do anything for the first week, I started doing some rather minor duties in the second, which allows me to get to know the other drivers better, and understand a little more on how the whole company works.

The only thing that I'm concerned about is the fact that nobody in the world has any idea when I'm going for my driving course, or my BMT recourse, or which one comes first. I'm kinda hoping my BMT comes first, since when I actually become a real driver, I'm expected to pass my IPPT.

Iron Man next week.

This is bloody torture

My new camp is bloody far away from my house, and I'm not sure if I can play for the band concert anymore. Two things that make me really mad.

I wake up really early in the morning to report there and get home at night to sleep.

Suddenly BMT looks really tasty.

What's the point of posting me out at this time when the course is probably starting only next week?

I really wanna play in the band concert, but with the uncertainty of what's gonna happen to me in the next few weeks, I don't know if I'll be free to attend practices and play for concert.

How am I supposed to just live with it like how I do with most other problems?

Hey baby, wanna go for a ride?

Alright now most of the things I said in the previous post don't make sense anymore. That's because all of a sudden I found out that I got posted out to be a driver somewhere in Singapore.

It really took me by surprise 'cause I only found out about it in the afternoon and had to pack up all the things in my cupboard and take a ferry home. I'll be reporting at my new camp tomorrow morning. I didn't even get a chance to say a proper "goodbye" to my new friends in Tekong.

It's like I was hurled into the gaping jaws of a Sarlacc, thrown around in its mouth before it decided to spit me right out and I landed on the next freighter in Mos Eisley on the way to the Cloud City above Bespin. I don't know what to expect anymore.

I find it weird that me of all people will be learning driving as part of my National Service. I bet that with my limited vertical capabilities, I can't even reach the pedals of a tonner. And the total lack of sense of direction and ability to memorize places I have isn't going to help things much.

Been a while

It's been a month since I last did this.

Army life has been pretty dumb for me. The fact that I'm officially Out Of Training really bums me out. Been sitting in a training shack from morning 'till night unless I have to move around(to eat/sleep/go to the toilet/participate in physical training/do sai kang etc) and struggling with the fact that I won't get posted out while waiting for my BMT to start, which means I'll be living like this until the next batch of fat dudes hop on the ferry to that godforsaken island(which might happen around June or July. I'm not exactly sure).
