Yours in Scouting,
Hello guys,

Ever since the start of last year, I’ve been thinking about what to say to you guys on my last day of SPL-ship. I mean, when the journey ends, you stop once in a while to remember all the wonderful moments of impact that made you who you are today. I guess you can never leave the experiences behind.

In my last post, I would like to deeply affirm everyone who has made my scouting journey such a memorable experience.

For the Secondary Ones, thank you for joining scouts. I hope that you’ll enjoy this journey as much as I did. All this would pass by soon, and you would grow up fast, fitting into the shoes of your seniors. I hope you will cherish everything around you and really learn to enjoy working with your seniors. I would really miss Kai Ming’s screaming though.

For the Secondary Twos, you guys are a crackpot of potential. There are so many interesting people in this level - with Darren Drama, Glen and Joshua’s secrets, Jasper’s emo look, Roy’s ‘:3’ face, Benn’s Korean look, ZiHao being at least four times my size, Malcolm’s awesome secretarial skills, Marcus Kwok being tired, Mitchell’s buff stereotype, Marcus Teo’s damn sian face, Lucas’ gonna-break-your-heart smile and Feng Yue’s unenthusiastic enthusiasm .I’m really proud of you guys for maturing so fast at this early stage of your lives. I really wish I could affirm you one by one, but that would take too long. As being the IC of the Secondary Twos for like, a few months, I hope that I’ve not disappointed you guys. I would love to see you guys step up next year. Secondary Two's got hope.

For the Secondary Threes, you’ve stepped up, the unit’s yours now. I hope the PLC of 2012 was able to inspire you guys in one way or another. You guys are another unique bunch.  I still cannot fathom what happened to Brandon, or Jia Da, or Saravanan, but I believe weird is good, yeah? Shaun, the road ahead would definitely not be easy, but tap unto your peers when necessary. I’m still so proud of you and your level. You guys have only one year, I believe that you’ll make it count.

I hope you guys remember my level and I for the people we are.  Forgive me if I’ve ever hurt you, I hope I won’t make the same mistakes again. I guess, always remember the goodness in people, and cherish kindness as a way of life and not a mask to deceive. I hope I was able to inspire you guys in being good people, not just good scouts. I’ve tried my best to influence you guys in the right direction and I hope I was successful in some ways. I hope you don’t forget the way I interacted with you guys and someday, step up to a better person than I ever was. Thank you to everyone who affirmed me, but it was you guys who changed my life.


After four years here, I guess it's time for me to leave. Never forget the people you are, remember that I'm still believing in you. 

Hold on to acting cute and spinning around, may these memories break our fall. Long Live the Pelandoks.

"No matter what happens in life, be good to people. Being good to people is a wonderful legacy to leave behind."
