As local NS boys would surely attest to, face camo is a b*tch.
A F*CKING B*TCH-
E/N: Hey, watch your mouth. We have young readers here too.
Oops, my bad. Allow me to correct myself; face camo is a menace. It’s hard to wash off, gets stuck on your fingers and emits the queerest smell known to mankind. And to top it all off, it’s always getting on my goddamn glasses-
E/N: Hold on, did you just say face camo?
E/N: Well that changes things. THAT F*CKING B*TCH-
People Who Have Been Through NS Spotted Something Very Wrong With This Image By The Singapore Army
The introductory paragraph might have been one filled with rather necessary fluff, but the gist is true:
Face camo can get pretty irritating, and it pretty much soils everything it comes into contact with.
“What about face masks?” you ask. “I mean, they’re pretty dope and all, right? Surely they’ll be able to resist such crude-sounding paste.”
Nope, they’ll be stained within seconds. Once you lay your hands on that face camo, everything’s getting tainted.
Wait, no way…
“Explain this then,” you demand.
Well… you know what they say. Photos reflect an instant…
Not a journey.
Nevertheless, no denying their effort and commitment to the training.
“Wayang? What’s wayang?”

“What about the third? They wore face masks, and those are the ones you see in the camera.”
“Well, I guess we’ll never know. What do you think of camo face masks though?”
Well, that will make things easier for trainees in the near future. But as the Netizen mentioned, it really depends on whether masks are indeed a long-term necessity.
“True. But hey, isn’t the point of training to make things more realistic? Wouldn’t blue face masks be too obvious?”
I’m sure they have their reasons. Such as this one:
And I concur with the reason:
Training should be tough, but not overly difficult.
In this sense, surgical masks would certainly suffice, despite their lack of a ‘realistic’ factor.
Hey, you know what? Let’s just ask our viewers what they think of this whole episode. Are the masks in the photo new ones or old ones?

“Loser has to do 100 push-ups a day.”
