Many thanks to you all.
I were wondering if we would consider cycling next? Cycling helped during the WW2 and Vietnam War. Cycling can be helpful with the current 'war' against daily peak-hours motorised traffic jams. I believe can be faster transport during such peak-hours motorised traffic jams to be cycling instead. I used to do so during peak-hours when my work required me to visit 2 to 3 work places within the daylight hours.

The idea pop-up since we have train breakdowns more frequently, and the buses may not cope well with the breakdowns. The high COE means lesser people drive around.

They should include both pushups and pullups in IPPT. Training only push movements can lead to muscle imbalance. NS nowadays is pathetic.

One of my engineers just back off a 3 year deferred Reservist due to working overseas failed his IPPT. He's got 12 weeks of RT and he's never going to pass, that's a lot of time to give up for free. seriously should people be punished like this after NS it's his choice to be a fat bastard, he's done his duty, does the country really need 35 year old reservists that can jog along east coast?

i did warn him that he would be in the shit if he carried on consuming and doing nothing he was going to get in the shit so perhaps it's his own stupid fault

So lucky, only caught in the rain average of twice a year so far. Hot weather is irregular encounter. On Saturdays I would start around 5am for 40Km trip (sight-seeing cum training cum commuting to work). Afternoon, I would do the 10-minutes interval to reach home (nearby). Lol.
