During my days as a vehicle mechanic after leaving Pulau Tekong, I learnt a lot about vehicles which is still useful till today. Of course I made a lot of friends too, and it was a good experience looking back.
After completing my 3 month army BMT training on Pulau Tekong in 1989, I was posted back to a camp in Singapore to become a vehicle mechanic for the rest of my army life until 1991.
Although the army life on Pulau Tekong was generally tough, there were times of fun and recreation too in order to raise the morale of the soldiers. These times were cherished by all, including myself.
