Singapore Soldier 'Remorseful' Over Maid Backpack Gaffe

#1
(A bit of background - in Singapore and Hong Kong it is normal for middle-class families to have a Filipina, Indonesian or Sri Lankan maid or 'Domestic Helper'. In HK the minimum wage for an Amah who works 6 days a week - often from 0600 to midnight - is HK$3,580 per month or about 285 Quid plus food and room, which is about the size of a broom cupboard).

Singapore soldier 'remorseful' over maid backpack gaffe

A Singaporean soldier who was pictured with a maid carrying his backpack has identified himself to his commander and undergone counselling, officials say.



The soldier was "remorseful", defence official Col Desmond Tan said in a letter published in the Straits Times.


The recruit was undergoing physical training prior to basic training.


The image, which was first published on social media sites, has led to debate in Singapore on whether conscripts and their training are tough enough.


'It was wrong'

The photograph showed the soldier in fatigues on a path with his maid following behind carrying his military field-pack on her back.


"The serviceman concerned has identified himself to his commander," said Col Tan.
"The recruit is remorseful for his actions and realises that it was wrong for him to have allowed this," he said.


"He has been counselled and continues his training. The SAF (Singapore Armed Forces) has reminded all servicemen to be mindful of their conduct in public."


Singapore maintains a conscript-based military. Every able-bodied male citizen and permanent resident aged 18 and over must have two years of military training.


The soldier in question was undergoing physical training before starting a nine-week Basic Military Training course.

Comparisons of cost and chance of re-offending on the following approaches please:
"counselled" = 3 one hour sessions discussing former life experiences, followed by 7 one hour sessions discussing football with shrink
old method = taken out of sight with WO2 for punch in stomach and the magic words "Don't do that again".

To be fair she has the shape of a beast of burden, he clearly hasn't.I think it only right and proper she should carry it - she is being paid after all. I bet she could handle a whole load more weight - see how she can just rest it on one shoulder effortlessly?
I reckon he needs two maids and a sedan chair.

Blow jobs all round from the maid!

Clearly his Mummy thinks all that humping (tee hee) and ******* about on basic is not for her little 'un. In that international military behemoth known as the Singaporean Army.

She's obviously strong enough to carry the pack on just one shoulder and she can tab in flip flops. Be fair, she'd do a better job and make a better jungle warrior than the mummy's boy.

If you zoom in on the photo, she's a bit of a horror, but at that age, the poor lads hormones are all over the place. I bet when Mummy has given her a good shoeing over this public loss of face, he will try to make it all up to her when Mumsy turns in for the night.

The poor lad's been gripped because his Amah's hair is too long and her flip flops ain't polished.
