Brunei recaptured...

First day in brunei, it isn't as bad as i thought in terms of the facilities. It was better than Taiwan. Had a few lessons today and was rushing to pack for tomorrow's navigation exercise. My hp network was abit off, can do all things except sending sms. Tried msging but just couldn't get through.End up calling instead.first day.Jiayou!

Wasn't free t0 write for the last few days. Had exercise Batayan and Chindit. Really shack. Slept for only like 4 hours for 3 dayz. i fell out halfway throught Chindit because of my ankle. Its swollen again. I hope by the time i go for JCC it'll be better.i hope..

Went throught survival training today. was quite gross wheb u see them slaughter the quell, chicken, rabbit and catfish. " For one to survival, one must die." the motto. is it? Tomorrow phase 1 of JCC, Ex nomad. I hope i can go through it safe and sound ,not injuring my ankle again. Just called home, i miss all of them.

I've lost track of which day is which. Just went through Nomad and pass it with 8/10. Was really scared initially when i couldn't find the 3rd checkpoint in the second day and only do so this morning. But still managed to reach the endpoint by 10am today. I feel like a camel nowadays. Carrying load and doing nothing except pacing.Haiz. Talking to wing commander about the missing signal accessories issue where someone never send it in. Wing Comd thought i have check the whole wing during the sending but i only check platoon 3. i was very discouraged when he say that the items were found even after i check, making me sound so irresponsible. Its platoon 2 that never send it. i was jus a volunteer to help Lim Aik. Not even an IC!Just a helper yet got arrowed and blamed for all these. Am i trying too hard?i was trying to be a follwer at times. Just feel saddened by what he said.Argh.
Today is 2nd bro birthday. Happy birthday bro. i dont really miss home but i miss my family. so many things happen today. Tears are in my eyes now but i m not crying. jus saddened. Sorry Lord. I should have control my emotions and temper.

Days in brunei are getting faster. Tomorrow is Chillhermit, JCC phase 2, and folloed by last phase Chillbone. 10 days out there surviving. i am kinda scared of the isolation during survival but i guess it'll make me stronger?God is with me. After chillbone we are going home.REally miss my family,mum,dad,bros.i really hope everything will be fine and i get the JCC. i'll do my best always. Glad to see that i am getting better with my buddy zhenghan. Do your best Jian'En!God is with you!

Day 1 into chillhermit. I haven eaten anything yet. Constructed the A frame and fireplace today. The frame fell 3 times, knocking into me. Feel so tired but the day has passed isn't it?My site is just by the River Apoi. Me, Lester, Zhenghan, Hongwei, Ben and David are quite close to each other. Its very dark here at 7pm.gonna slp at 8.Goodnight.

2nd day. I completed the 2 traps, roofing for my firepladce and half the roofing for my A-frame. Had many short naps todat, was too tired at times because i haven't eating anything at all. I hope everything will passed and the food comes tomorrow. Had quite a few dreams today about home and about life.i'll press on!

Today is reward day. i've got the ferns and 2 small sweet potato as reward. Not alot but at least its some food? Not to forget i killed the quell today,skin it and eat it. Murderous?Abit. but i don't really feel anythihng even when holding the warm body. Is it survivor's instinct to kill? Or is it part of what i am taught?"For ojne to survive, one must die". Getting frustrated because i just don't seems to be able to start a fire. Have to join Lester and Zhenghan. I feel so loser.Nonetheless, i'll try my best. Day 3 passed.Jiayou!i miss mum,dad and bros.

Day 4 and i'm beginning to feel tthe fatigue in me. My legs are jelly, arm strength-less. Keep knocking out because io am too weak to continue. Black out whenever i squat too long. Cramps keep coming and i even have difficulty writing this. but when i see Lester being so active, i am ashame of myself. I need to press on.Suddenly i thought of the food at home.miss mum's cooking.Never realise how fortunate i was. i miss curry, the dessert, sweet and sour pork, miss the drink mum made, i miss home alot. Wonder how are they doing now. Wonder how is service in church today. Wonder is anyone back there still remember me?i am thinking too much.Time to rest.

Today is the final and assessment day for survival. i don't knoe how much i've got but i'm jus happy that its over. He didn't really check me but tested my traps and shelter. really glad that its over. 5 more days and i am out of here. i really miss home. Was fishing with the rest of them. Feel so happy suddenly when we were talking about food. At least we still have each other.FEll into the river just now. Super unlucky but not very wet except for my boots. Tomorrow is another challenge. it'll be over soon.Thank you Lord for guiding me this far.

2nd day of Chillbone. We have reack checkpoint 2. i'm proud of what i've achieved with God's help, getting me so far even when i started at LP250, the worst route and farthest startpoint. I am really happy to reach here.Feel so happy with my team though i may not be of much help to them. 6 more days to going home. i really miss it. i want to go home.

Yes!i made it back today.Managed to complete Chillbone 2 days before time, under 30 daylight hours. It was tough but sweet when i think back. i will remember the time when my legs ache so much yet i pushed on. The time when i am so hungry yet no food. The time i feel like crying out yet no tears. I will never forget it .called home. Miss everyone. Talked to mum and really miss her. I never ever miss home so much before in my life. I am coming home!
whack the food in the canteen till i m so full. Everything taste so nice. its good to be back 1st place. Thank you Lord! Oh ya, i will never forget the time when i feel so lonely and helpless yet He is always there for me comfort me, lead me and look over me.The numerous time i cried out to Him for guides to my checkpoints, for perseverance. The time i climbed mount teluggong, the vertical rocks, when i near fall to my death coz of fatigue yet He provide the strength to push me on. Thank You Lord!I'm blessed to know You and receive you salvation. Truely blessed.

Flying off soon.feel so excited.i want to go home so badly. This trip in Brunei has taught me so much things. How important it is to place faith in Him, have a preview of what Christ went through though mine is like nothing compared to His. Knowing these make me realised how much God love us that He gave us His son, iyt cannot be measures. Learnt also to appreciate things around us. Especially my family. i am grateful for the support i get from my family and friends. This experience might not have change me as a person but i has widen my perspective,my insight on life.To you who was always there for me, thank you:)
