As part of our contribution to the YOG and the community, we were part of the service crew for the One Community Walk. This was an unprecedented nation-wide mass walking event engaging more than 85,000 residents from all the constituencies in Singapore. It was the largest synchronized mass walking event in Singapore and one of the biggest displays by the community in support of the inaugural Singapore Youth Olympic Games.
However, punctuality is still something that SE needs to improve on. Some reported late causing our next reporting time to be set earlier than necessary in anticipation of late-comers. Hopefully, punctuality will soon see some improvement. Late-comers, do something, for the team! :)
I also had fun listening to some old folks talking while we walked and got to understand them better. We have to learn something from everything we do, instead of going about everything blindly.

At the same time, Gregarious Monkey and Affable Nightingale were promoted to PLs of Swift and Eagle respectively while myself and Izzuan Shah were promoted to APLs.
This week's meeting was on a rainy Saturday morning, we reported at 0900 hours and quickly started by learning some commands. We did them over and over until we did it good. When the rain stopped we ran to the basketball court to do some marching, it was tiring yet we had lots of fun.
Each time someone made a mistake, we had to do push ups, that was tiring but it was for our own good. It was certainly a good way to keep us accountable to our team. We ended at about 1200 hours with new found foot drill skills. Yay, Footdrill II done.
