National Service 2012 (Khidmat Negara)

For those born in 1994, the national service list of names is out.... BUT.... I have tried endless times to log in but in vain. My girl is jittery now, a few of her close friends called her up and told her that they were not chosen. They were very happy of not being chosen....

I guess the website http://www.khidmatnegara.gov.my/ is very busy now, each time I log in, it says Error in Logging in Database Connection...

My girl is easing off her nervousness playing the piano .... as for me, I don't have anything where I can release the tension except through blogging about it here....

Questions like "how ah if chosen to go? will she be able to cope with it? Can she withstand the sun cos of her sensitive skin...." Heard many horror stories about the NS... as a parent, I can't help feeling skeptical about the training being monitored properly or not.

Well, I guess I am being overly worried.. actually many of them enjoyed themselves a lot in the NS. One of my nieces who went for it this year came back telling that she enjoyed herself so much that she cried during the last day farewell.....

I am consoling myself with this...

  7. Those horror stories are sometimes blown out of proportion la. All activities also will have accidents and etc...even when we cook also sometimes will kena splash by hot oil. Things will be fine. She will enjoy herself at the camp should she be chosen

  8. actually it's not sucha bad thing, my younger brother went for NS 2 years back, and according to him it was an eye opening experience.

    He was from a chinese school, and this was the first time he could mix with people of other races and share living space with them. He loved it to say the least. Made a lot of friends, and they still keep contact until now!

    So don't worry too much ok?

  10. I advised my students to get away from NS by taking up a course in private colleges. This gives them a very good excuse to postpone the training. By the time they complete their pre-U course, they are so close to leaving the country for tertiary education in other countries.

  11. Oh man.. quite worry for the saftey of our kids.. especially if your kids is a girl..

  12. Hope she is not in the list. Some adventurous ones may like to experience it but not all. Should be for boys only. There are so many ways to train youngsters to live with each other. A reluctant participant will generate negative thoughts through the training but sometimes the participant may see something new to learn and start to show interest. Maybe those past incidents give us the jitters. I wonder if they have started hiding any recent incidents from public.

  19. I would feel very tensed too if I were you. :( Too many not so good stories we have heard right? But if chosen...we don't have much choice right?

  20. I can understand your feeling. It is not that bad to join NS, but I still won't want my girls to be selected, right? Parents are allowed to visit on weekends, not too bad la!

  21. I was scanning the comments seeing if you had replied if she got in or not.

    I can understand your concern....really too many horror stories. But there are some great stories too. God will take care of her, faith be yours.
