Please don't ask me why I am not taking honours. It's has been my intention to take up Bachelor even before my very first semester starts. So please don't ask me why again.

In trouble

One of my friends is in trouble. Hope I can help a bit.

I had a stomachache just now all because of I being a glutton. I went to JB just now and before I left, I bought myself Bak Kut Teh for dinner at a coffeeshop. I guessed the Bak Kut Teh was the culprit for my stomachache.

What's good of a COPA

Some of the benefits of a COPA are the following:
1) No duties for me other than "serving" CO. This means no COS, no duty clerk, no guard duty, etc.
2) No one (except CO) dares to ask me to do things.
3) Everyone (except CO) listens to me.
4) Everyone (except CO) takes my word seriously.
5) I am allowed to call everyone's including CO's handphone.
6) I need not queue up.
7) When I need to get something which is not found in my working area, I make a call and get someone to get it for me.

Bad day for me

CO called me early in the morning regarding particulars of members for this Sunday's briefing. I printed a list of contact numbers of members involved in the briefing and reminded him to bring home but then he forgot! This morning, he politely told me if I could make a trip to camp and tell him those contact numbers. My goodness! I live in Ang Mo Kio and my camp is at Lim Chu Kang! There goes my lunch with Regine. Before I left for camp, I called Orchid Country Club to help book 18-hole golf session for 4 on behalf of my that CO. Trip to camp took me almost 2 hours.

Life as a COPA

COPA (Commanding Officer Personal Assistant) is not easy at all. In practice, a COPA usually just stays in the office slogging like a typical secretary. Only the CO (Commanding Officer) runner is to go out-field. However, my CO (Commanding Officer) thinks otherwise. He feels there should not have a clear line separating between the duties and responsibilities of a COPA and a CO runner.

Some of the duties of a COPA are
1. Receive calls and take down messages
2. Schedule meetings/briefings for CO
3. Facilitate signing of documents
4. Check and reply his emails
5. Schedule cleaning of his GP car.
6. Keep his desk clean and neat
7. Pack his field pack
8. Ensure cleanliness of his field pack
9. Go out field with him

Going out field with him also sucks.
"Map please" - I have to pass to him
"Camo" - Pass him his camo cream
"Mirror" - ...

Would not want to describe further.


Finally, I have confirmed to have graduated. My exam result was released on 1st June 0900. So happy :)
