Sea Tiger Ship Dinner

It was not easy coordinating a ship dinner when 1) funds were running low 2) former crew has been spread all over the RSN 3) it's the holiday season, some were overseas.

But with great help from sengtiong, ah teo (marathon partner) and maurice, we pulled it off ok.

Thanks to the contributions from fellow officers! =)

The missile gunboats seem to know that their time has come and gone. But they will not go gently into that good night. In the past 6 months, we've proven to others that we remain a potent force to be reckoned with. Not forgetting the successful missile firing that became the talk of the whole navy. And now our sister ship, Sea Dragon (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) looks set to win the navy's Top Gun this year with Eugene (previous Gunnery Officer from Tiger).

Rage, rage against the dying of light.... (A Villanelle - Dylan Thomas, is such a beautiful poem. A perfect combination of poetic beauty in choice of words, technical difficulty as well as the human story behind it.)
