my little brother got enlisted on 07 april 2005. suddenly, i feel all scared and weepy @ the thot of my little brother all grown up. he is no longer the little fellow i could bully now. he is going to be a MAN. tat’s wat army produces isnt it??

anyway, we went to send him off. despite my brother and me not being very chummy(he’s closer to our elder sis), despite the fact i used to bully him, i am worried. he might get bullied. he might get into bad company. he might get “blanket partied” coz he did something “wrong” as he didnt know better. he could have been “arrowed” into doing something dangerous.

anyway, on D-day, dad, mom and i went to Tekong with him. the moment i step onto the jetty, i cant help but to go WHAO!!!!! this place sure looks like a holiday resort!! even my dad commented tat this place is better than Bintan. my brother remained silent.

throughout the whole looksee trip, they tried very hard of convince us, parents and relatives alike, tat “your sons are well taken care of!!” clean bedsheets, clean room, clean everything…… even provide us a sample lunch. i tried to believe. then i had to read abt this.

i seriously hope tat my brother would not be in tat situation. it is indeed very sad tat people would take the chance just so as to save a few mins or hours. tat the price of life could be TAT cheap. and, yes, i am worried. and i missed him. i missed talking nonsense to him just to see his face fell and literally had “huh?? like tat also can!! dun tell people U are my sister…..” scribbled all over. looks like my parents are cooler abt the fact tat he is away in camp than me. trust them.


我的弟弟于05年04月07日入伍了。忽然间,我不禁感到害怕与不舍。我弟弟长大了,不再是那个能让我欺负的小男孩儿了。他快要成为一个男人了。这不是入伍效应吗?

我们到德光岛送他。尽管我和弟弟并不算很亲密(弟弟和大姐的感情较亲密),尽管在他小时候欺负他最多的人是我,我仍然很担心。可能他会被欺负。可能他会因为耳根子轻而受坏影响。可能他会因为不通世事而做“错”事,应而挨揍。可能他会因太老实而被“整”去做一些危险的事。

无论如何,当天我和父母陪他到兵营去报道了。一从码头到德光岛岸上,我不禁哗然:“除了XXX要入伍外,这里简直就象是去度假村玩一样!!”连我父亲都说这里有如民丹岛度假村。我弟弟安静以对。

当我们到处参观时,军官们都重复地让我们知道:“您的儿子将受到很好的照顾与对待。” 不错,干净的床单,干净的房间,样样都是干净的。。。兵营还让我们吃了一顿兵营的饭菜。我试图相信。但是我却在网络上读到这个

我真的很希望我弟弟不会面对这种情况。为了节省时间而铤而走险的人太多了。人的生命变的贱。对,我担心。我也好想他。就想念和他胡言乱语,为的就是看看他这小老头的脸上写着“无聊”二字的表情。我父母却很冷静。他们真行。
