It was a celebration for his ORD that had turn into a mishap. The SCDF regulars had went over the limit and we will know the truth when the investigation had concluded.

Everyone whom had gone through service in Singapore either in Army, Police or SCDF Will knows well on how regulars behave.

Although SCDF had make great efforts to convey the information through different communications protocol that certain activities are not allowed but there are still people whom will not adhere to it.

The NSF is only 19 years old and parents would loss confidence in the Army System in the short run. There were news on the internet and forums even before his final moment at the hospital. It turn out it was not fake news but whistle blowing by his platoon mates.

This news extract is in Chinese and everyone is discussing the legality of price increase during Chinese New Year. $0.20 to $0.50 of increase is acceptable to the public.
