I'm not from SPF..Have got many friends servin NS with SPF..

 

I find that those that did 6mths as recruit seem to come out a better person as compared to the new system servin 3months recruit..Seems like after the 3months as a recruit they still come out as devils..No offence its just based on what I've observed..:cheeky:

09/07/2009 - Passed 2B TP (10th attempt)

 

I have tried to see things from your point of view..But no matter how hard I try..Or what I do..I just can't get my head that far up my butt..

Hello there!

 

NSF from SPF here, currently slated to ORD on 12.12.2007! Highly likely you're enlisting one day after I get my pink IC back! Gotta tell you one thing though.. Be it you serve it out in the Army, Police or Civil Defence, view everything with a positive mindset and I assure you, the 2 years will give you lotsa great memories!

 

If you're riding into HTA, there are bike lots within, for you to park your motorbike. Highly unadvisable for you to ride in on your first day. Registration, pledge followed immediately by Physical Training the moment your parents leave the place. My batch at Old Police Academy, we ended up doing "Mass Calisthenics" in our walk-in jeans and t-shirts. I don't know about logistics now, but it took 3 days before we got out PT attire; etc.

 

10 days of confinement.

 

You'll get your "mangkok" haircut on the first day. Prepare $2 for the cut and lotsa shampoo cos they reuse the blades. So the itch! You''ll be divided into "Squads" and not "Platoons" as in the Army. Highly likely separation between the ITE and Poly/JC grads into different squads. Seniors will keep disturbing you with "Mangkok", everywhere you go.

 

If you're going into the PTP phase aka "Prep Course", be prepared for "Mass Calisthenics" 3 times a day. It's basically a nice word put into place for the Field Instructors (FI) for keep on giving you rounds of push-ups after push-ups. In the Army, the command is "Half-left down, half-right down!" for push-ups. In the Police, its "To your right palms down, to your left palms down!"

 

Hang in there.

 

Bring lots of coins too, to get canned drinks from the vending machines located at the different Companies. Training's not that gruelling. Lights out at 2230hrs.

 

When it comes to vocation, I chose NPCO (NPC Officer) and got it. I was originally supposed to go into OCT (Officer Cadet), but I rejected it (I'm not trying to show off aight!). The prospects of being an OCT is that you train for a further 9 months after the 3 months of Basic Police Training (BPT), after which you end up doing paperwork for the rest of your National Service stint. You learn nothing.

 

After 3 months of BPT, got into NPCO and went for another 3 months course in HTA. Total of 6 months. After which I was posted to 'J' Division. On the ground, you learn lots of things and I can assure you that some of these things, you will never get to learn anywhere else. You get into real life problems/situations faced by real people and try to help them as best as you can. You see things that people cannot and will not.

 

If you end up being a Staff Assistant (SA) or Station Security Officer (SSO), say hello to Brain-deadness.

 

Plenty of frustrations.

 

Enjoy your training. ORD-O! :angel:

 

Sorry for the long rambling. PM me if you need any help!

wah wah wah this thread v useful to me too! im entering in december too! 11 Dec to be exact. By the way, isit advisable for me to bring in my camera phone or get a phone which is cam-less?

 

According to my fren:

 

1. 2 weeks Confinement

 

2. Only Squad IC, Room IC and some **** IC are allowed to bring in their HP charger for easy communication with OC for direct instructions. if not selected as IC, advisable to buy extra batt for the two weeks ba

 

3. When you book out, you must wear your book out attire ( white short sleeve + belt + pants + boots)

 

4. Sandal or slipper would be distributed to you. (So isit advisable for me not to bring a pair )

 

But are we allowed to ride our bike? cuz the letter discourage us to ride it.

any more pointers to take note? I'm actually eager to enter..wohoo!

If I go Forward, Follow me

If I hesitate, Push me

If they kill me, Avenge me

If I'm a traitor, Kill me

Anyway , TP n VC oso white shirt n blue pants leh .

Lol! You got everything right there, bro. Yeah David Scott Arul. Heh. No doubt Old Tracom is so much better. Always woke up in the morning feeling' damn fresh. The place is just so very nostalgic.

 

You signed on regular?

 

Camera phones are fine. Try to get permission from your OC to bring in a digital camera. Take pictures throughout your BPT for use during your Passing Out Dinner. All squads will have a picture montage.

YOu are only able to ride when they allow you to do so..most probably after the confinement, during the next book in...

wat do i need to bring along wit me on the day of enlistment?wat r the stuff they will give it to u? :cheeky:

 

Underwear.

Washing powder (washing machine available. But hand-wash is encouraged)

Clothes scrubber.

Toiletries (toothbrush, paste, soap, shampoo, shaver).

Slippers.

A small padlock! (those darn HTA doors can be opened easily with a hangar)

Talking bout that, hangars.

Snake powder.

Extra handphone battery.

Titbits (biscuits would be good)

Clothes for sleeping.

Nail-cutter.

Books (plenty of reading time)

MP3 Player.

Yoko-yoko muscle ointment.

Panadol.

 

That's all I can think of at the moment! A good rule of thumb would be to go from your head to your toe for the necessities.

 

Please note that items not written here would be provided to you by SPF. E.g: Shorts, PT Shirt, Shoes, etc.

It's a brand of powder popular amongst NSF's. Available in Original and Lavender. Yes and yes. You may wear home clothes and also bring in an MP3 player.

 

Whilst going through the NPCO course, some of us even brought in portable DVD players to watch movies. Power sockets are available in the bunks, just don't get caught though!
