Quek had assured me that he would definitely help me to clear my leave and off successfully even when he was posted to another department. I trusted him.
The problem was that Shep had asked for my leave forecast quite long ago and when I had finished it, she told Chen De she did not want to care anymore. I was not sure if she wanted to see mine and would approve it.
My accumulated off days reached up to around nine days and Quek allowed me to clear seven days and added five days for my medical appointments. Hence, with my balanced twenty-five days leave and twelve days off, which was quite a long period of time. In fact, compared to my ex platoon-mates, they had already been clearing their leave, which was more envious.
Ten working days left till National Day, life was still hazy.
