Survivor Pulau Tekong: Outwit, Outplay and Outlast

The 3 Malaysian robbers who had the nation enthralled with their Pulau Tekong escapades were finally arrested - the first on Friday evenin, and within six hours of each other, the other two were finally found on Saturday.

It took the combined forces of 700 Special Task Squadron, Guardsmen, reconnaissance troops and Gurkhas to comb the island of 24.4 sq km before finding the elusive robbers. The saga lasted 56 hours.

Call me a pessimist, but 700 troops to find 3 men? If this is Singapore's intent to show Malaysia how efficient and overwhelmingly strong the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) is then i think the Malaysians got that point. Not that the Malaysians were too bothered by the pursuit anyway...they had their National Elections goin on...and without an imcumbent national party (read: Singapore) the Malaysians had an interestin race...

Singapore Map But you've gota hand it to the 3 robbers. I mean...how stupid are they? Of all the places you run to you simply have to choose Singapore's most defended island where conscripts are picked off against their will for Nationalistic trainin...You've got to be as clueless as a Bob Harris (read: white man in a no-english speakin Asian country ala Bill Murray in his almost-there performance in Lost in Translation...shame on you Oscars for not givin him the statue...)

I dont suppose Malaysians read the newspapers..have Singaporean friends...or clean their ears...every month or so SAF conducts military trainin that borders on downright molestation of Malaysia's space...the artillery guns are fired near the Kranji and Seletar areas facing the Singapore straits as a demonstration of SAF might...on a clear day any Malaysians with a pair of binoculars can spy the Singapore artillery formation go about their silly hullaballoo...

As if the Malaysians care...3rd fugitive being led outcoz though they dont have compulsory conscription...their uniforms are a bright blue and yellow hue...now who needs artillery fire when they have that? Enemies will just die laughing...

Then again who am i to criticise the Malaysian policies? As a naturalised Singaporean it wasnt too long ago when i would still wield the Malaysian Identity Card as a means to get around...suspicious Malaysians would always geme the 'WTF are you' look coz my Mandarin's really dodgy...doesnt have the Malaysian accent and i dont speak Malay at all...

It'll be interestin to see how the events unfold over the next few days...i can so see PAP gloatin on it's ego-inflated PAP-owned Straits Times over the efficiency and alarming overwhelming number of men it deployed to capture 3 allegedly armed men...with the aftermath of the Malaysian elections still not sinkin into our Northerly neighbours this'll be a great time for Malaysia to feel PAP's wrath...cowerin into a corner they will not...but rest assured we've not heard the last of the 3 robbers...
