First and foremost, CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR BIG DAY!!!! You have withstood regimentation long enough for 2 years and today is your big release!! By the time you have read this you would have collected your pink ic and taken the first step into your civilian and university life..
Thanks for being a helpful, humble and selfless bunk mate, for the better part of 18 months. During our first few months of living in the same space, things were not always a delight between us. An argument eventually broke out, which epitomizes our early relationship. Looking back, the argument was really pointless and i felt i owe you an apology given that i was the more vocal and aggressive party. I was glad it didn’t escalate into perpetual hate or displeasure. I am relieved we buried the hatchet and got along well to be friends. Being a bunk mate of the other 3 of us was not easy, given that the 3 of us were quite lazy(area cleaning), doesn’t take initiative and often indulge in rule breaking activities( mostly smoking in the bunk), but you made up for our shortcomings, took initiative and you assumed extra responsibilities without complains, the 3 of us are really grateful for that.
I apologize for the times i might have been a burden to you. For example making you clean up after my mess, getting you into trouble for something i did, or disturbing you at night with my usage of phone.I know im not the best bunk mate to be with but i glad you manage to “tahan” me.
I will miss the times in the bunk where we would talk to each other about various stuff, such as an alternative for a particular word, our futures, news, travels, food or just generally joking around with kelvin and weixiang. The 3 of us are quite different to your usual group of friends but you kept an open mind and accepted our cultures and join in. I had a memorable time during the section outing we had few months back. It was an eye opener to see you and ming liang drinking in the pub given that’s something you guys don’t normally do. I am glad you enjoyed that particular experience.
Now that you have left the service, its inevitable we will see pretty much lesser of each other but i hope we would still hang out as a section every now and then, and stay connected through social media. The 3 of us will defintely miss you! i know you will miss us too!
Finally, good luck for your studies and whichever profession you wish to enter in the future. I am sure with your positive and hardworking attitude, you will no doubt have a clear path to a successful career. Til next time medic!!!!!!
