7 February 2010... We celebrated another Graduation Day from one month of intensive training at the Original Bootcamp Malaysia. This is the only time that everybody from KL Alpha, KL Bravo, PJ Alpha, PJ Bravo and PJ Charlie gathered under one roof to celebrate another month of OBC-Finisher.
Similar to December 2009, we celebrate the January 2010 graduation at the Mark's Place @ Kelana Jaya between 11am to 3pm with a buffet lunch. The Buffet Lunch cost RM45 per person and comprised of Spaghetti, Satay, Fried Rice, Lamb Pizza.....
There were no scrolls for those that graduated, but the sentiment to be surrounded by people with similar passion for health and fitness was sufficient to get us all motivated.... that, I reckon was one of the objective of the Graduation Day.
Upon arrival at 1pm, Mark's Place was already packed. I was greeted by David, Anushia Siva Subramaniam's husband and his son Mark, the owner and the operator of Mark's Place. Anushia is a recruit at PJ Bravo. The buffet was served in a private pool room that was converted into the food area.
The free-flow food buffet was stopped for a moment for a short announcement by Sergeant Simran Latiff for the Spirit of Bootcamp award.
There is one Spirit of Bootcamp award for every platoon.
The Spirit of Bootcamp award was presented to Zaiem Razak for KL Alpha, Jack Lua for KL Bravo and Gail Tailor for PJ PM. Raja Rahman Mansor, the recipient for PJ Alpha and Nicholas Chan for PJ Bravo was absent.

There were a few from KL Bravo today, I saw Adibah Syazni Jaafar, Amelda Wong, Sham Ser, Jamielah Khan, Selima B, Jack Lua, Stephanie Lai and a few others (please fill me up...).
Recruits from other platoons were Chun SSJ, Cynthia Gan SSJ, Angela Foo YTF, Alex Nathan, Maya Hashim, Suanie T, Bev Tee, Lulu Cattywampus, Joyce Chuo, Asha Vadivelu, Rukaiyah Manis, Nicholas Chan, Zairin Zainuddin, Maria Hashim................ I smiled when I saw the jovial Suanie T, Bev Tee and Cynthia... these bunch were the life at Pee Jay Platoon.
Regrettably, there were only 4 trainers that came to celebrate our Graduation... Sergeant Simran, Corporal Faizal Ariff, Corporal Jason and Lans Corporal Hafiz Omar. There were no sign of Corporal Dharmendra Mahalingam, Lans Corporal Elin Klemetsen Fossum, Lans Corporal Zamzul, Lans Corporal Stephanie Chok and other trainers. We were quite disappointed with the poor turn-up of the trainers.
