ha i gt some advice cause my kor jus go in in December last year

1)bring an extra key lock , nt too big to lock yr shoe cupboard as there will be no lock provided for this.

2)if u dunno how to wash clothe dun worry , buy extra set so u can go home wash when u book out

3)yr free time for the day is usually frm 9.30~pm to 10.30pm when u can chat with yr boy/galfren .. etc .u will be force to call yr parent on the first day ... u go u know why ..

4)bring in some food cupnoodle/sweet if u feel hungry at night ... there is hotwater provided @ water cooler i think

5) bring in yr music player as life is very boring there ... especially the 2 weeks where u have to stay there..

6)be a good boy there

Only Some SGT bully people only. Most will be understanding enough that you are new in the army. But just be prepared for a lot of changes. Army now is already very different from the past where tekan is the most common form of practice. Just make full use of the time there. Enjoy physcial Training~!

no la, I bet not. Coz he treat us like soldiers too T_T break a rule and drop 20! and he teach us not like a teacher,some more teach wrong stuff and we have to correct him

I dono what rank he is la, but he has power in the NS there. Then he tells us some stuff about the NS. After 1 term, he disappeared. *scary*

you tekong or mono intake?

well, generally,
buy small lock with many keys
buy black tape
music players/psp/ etc for the 1st few weeks is not recommended(different place different standard)
u dont have to bring any civilian tees in, other than the 1s u are wearing, u wont have the chance to wear them
if u dont wanna suffer from the physical training in there, start training now...
if u are using a phone with camera functions etc, time to get a low tech 1...
not advised to bring in too much valuables and money, wont have much chance to spend them...

happy drinking
