NDP 2014 (Behind The Scenes with The Singapore Navy)

HAPPY 49TH BIRTHDAY, SINGAPORE

In preparation for the NDP 2014, I was invited by The Singapore Navy to join them for a day of rehearsals to have a glance of their behind-the-scenes action. We had the opportunity to ride on the (RHIB) Rigid Hull Inflatable Boat to witness their performance. I can't express how am I fortunate and lucky to be able to experience how is it like to be on a RHIB.

It was a bumpy, splashy and speedy ride! Thank you Singapore Navy for the wonderful experience! 

In case if you didn't know, I also insta-vid! 




We were also able to take a sneak peek of the behind-the-scenes operations where we can see the Army Tanks and Trucks!

Thank you Singapore Navy for the invitation! It was indeed a wonderful experience with spectacular performances and amazing fireworks!


Spot me if you can!

I got to compliment the marching contingent! You guys did an awesome job! I know how tiring the training is and also standing under the scorching hot sun for so long! I actually participated in the parade in 2010, where I was inside the NPCC Contingent! Thats why there's always something in my heart for every NDP. All the hard work definitely paid off! I truly appreciate the contingent's effort.

 I am so looking forward to next year's NDP performance because it's going to be held at the Padang and we are also going to celebrate our Nation's 50th Birthday! I'm so proud to be a Singaporean to be able to celebrate on this special occasion!
Thanks for reading!

My experience at Gills N Shells (Lavender)

I was invited for a food tasting session at Gills N Shells not long ago to try out their new dishes. Gills N Shells is a restaurant/drinking place that is inspired by the ocean. The restaurant specialises in seafood, thus they offer a vary of seafood dishes. They are dedicated to serve quality food with the best quality. Gills N Shells is easily accessible as they are located just behind Hotel Boss facing the river. The nearest train station is at Lavender MRT Station, thus it will only take a 5 minutes walk to get to this restaurant.

Gills N Shells recently launched their seafood platter served in a dim sum basket. As mentioned, there is a variety of seafood choices you can select from. However, there is a minimum order of three seafood choices. If you are an adventurous person or you can eat a lot, you may wish to order the All-in-A Basket Special. It comes along with all the seafood listed in the menu.

Orh Nee,Yam Cake from Buttertrade

Ever since when I was little boy, whenever I attend a wedding dinner, the food item that I always anticipate the most has got to be the orh nee dessert. I mean who doesn't loves yam! So creamy yet sweet! Sometimes I wish I can find them at dessert stalls but you can rarely find them nowadays. Recently, I was greeted with an orh nee cake right at my door step thanks to Buttertrade

The cake is from Bloomsbury Bakers delivered by Buttertrade.

My internship in Japan (Niigata)

If you haven't read my previous blogposts about my overseas industrial attachment at Japan you can click on the links below: http://www.uncletehpeng.com/2014/09/exploring-niigata-japan-kite-museum.html http://www.uncletehpeng.com/2014/08/my-trip-to-japan-niigata-day-1.html''

Working in Japan is one of my greatest experience so far! The people there are so nice to communicate too and they are not only patient but very kind too. Despite the communication barrier, we were still able to translate our body language to talk to each other. The only funny thing is when we have to use Google Translate to talk to each other. Above is a picture of a huge tentage that my colleague and I built. Do note that everything including the tent sheets are made from scratch! 

I was attached to a logistics company during my internship period! The company has many years of experience in the industry thus I learnt plenty of things about administration & practical work. Japanese are very passion…
