4 November 2016 Friday
041116 (Fri) Day One
With more emphasis on foreign engagement, most of the local biannual SAF open houses have ceased and replaced with smaller scale roadshows.
The PR also went south for such roadshows with only a week to showcase it in the mainstream and social media even for the 2016 SG Defence Exhibition.
There were no major events for this weekend and I was able to make a quick stop to check out the SG Defence Exhibition.
It was also a touch and go event as I was taking the Circle Line MRT train which now has constant breakdowns.
The exhibition area was quite dark and lighted with blue lights making it difficult to read the information boards and I also could not make out the faces when talking with the DSTA personnel due to the low light conditions.
There were only a few SAF hardwares for the general public to see.
All in all, the DSTA personnel were quite friendly and ready to make small talks about their projects.
