Tomorrow, the government will release a list of 100,000 seventeen year olds who are required to go into the the National Service. Yes, that’s military service.
The chance of being drafted is 2/9, because apparently there are 450,000 kids born in 1986.
I’m not sure whether or not I’d like to be drafted. Not that I’m unpatriotic, but I don’t exactly look forward to having some things stuffed down my throat for three months straight. I mean, it’s not just everyone who’s eager to be drafted into the army, right?
The list goes out tomorrow at http://www.khidmatnegara.gov.my, and also some major newspapers such as Utusan and New Straits Times.
A 2/9 chance is both narrow and broad at the same time. Getting drafted might just prove to be an interesting experience, right??
