Reached Singapore at 11.30am. I am not fated to eat the Depot Road Laksa. There was one more branch at West Coast Block 501, went there with my parents and it didn’t open, even though it stated that it will be close on Friday only. End up eating roast meat/duck there. Not too bad.
Met up with LiXiang and Jackey to watched I, Robot at GV Marina. The movie is quite cool and I kinda like those futuristic movies, quite worth the $8.50 compared to King Author. The story is set in 2035 AD. The Audi car is way cool.
Wanted to eat Depot Road’s Claypot Laksa, but couldn’t find it. They have another branch at West Coast, also could not find it. The new MacDonald’s outlet at West Coast is cool, very nice ambiance.
Met up with Jackey, LiXiang and Laily to do some shopping around Orchard. Got myself a 256MB RS-MMC card from Heeren’s PK Computer and an Adidas Polo Shirt. I kinda like Adidas stuff now over fourskin because fourskin the t-shirt quality is dropping.
Book out an hour early because all the instructors have a specialists parade, thus instead of 12pm fastcraft, we took the 10.45am fastcraft.
Wanted to have Depot Road’s Laksa for lunch, but it seems that the whole stall has disappeared from the coffeeshop, I think they are going to tear down the whole building. End up having lunch at Great World City’s Food Junction.

As usual, army management is always so fucked up. At 8pm then I know I am suppose to take 9pm fastcraft and that is the time I took my off pass. I can book out on Wednesday because I need to attend the World Skills Singapore 2004 on Thursday to Friday. It took me great time and effort just to get this 3 days off and also got scolded by my PC. But I think it is very worth it. In army, every time there is a chance to book out, how much effort and trouble wasted is always worthed it.

Woke up at 7am, reached ITE Balestier at 8am. The competition starts at 9.30am. It was quite a grand affair. They advertise in the Straits Time and 8 Days. On the first day, minister of manpower came, on the 2nd day onwards, it is opened to the public. I got a shock when they say we got 1 hour to read the question paper and to test the computer.
