This week, our brigade conducted a wargaming exercise. Basically a war strategy game held on computers.

Although my trainer described it as 'being like Starcraft', I found that difficult to swallow, because the graphics are minimal at best, the gameplay is boring as hell, and one Starcraft mission lasts 2-4 hours, while one Wargame mission can last 2-4 days.

It's a pity I didn't get to catch a glimpse of local celebrity Tay Ping Hui, who was locked inside the opposing forces room. After seeing the carefree manner in which our commanders expended the troops during battle, I can only hope that those great military leaders use us a bit more sparingly in the event of an actual war.
