Captain’s log                              Stardate: 63265.8 (Oct 06, 2009)

Happened a week ago. Sorry that I didn’t blog in earlier, cause I was been occupied with other stuff. Anyway, its already the worse case scenario once my team were reported on duty. I mean, the very first case that our division HQ had dispatch to me and my partner since the location were within our patrol grounds. Oh well, its call on duty to save the city……

Anyway, I will fast forward towards noon, where we are to head down to our division HQ, as instructions were given to escort an inmate to the Institute of Mental Hospital which was located in the heart of Hougang. Don’t asked me how he ended up at the other side of town. Long story anyway. It makes you wonder though….

And along the expressway, he kept bragging how he had strike a huge sum of lottery. Better believe it, cause his lucky day on that very day, as according to him, was three years ago! Furthermore, he also complained all sort of things. Even those things that I don’t even want to heard! You think both my partner and I were interested in listening to his sick story of such dirty stuff that were seen from the internet? Yeah we do try to shut him up. Sure he did acknowledge. But again, he only “acknowledge.” And continue dragging all sorts of ridiculous stories along the way. In the end, we gave up, as long as he doesn’t created any sort of trouble. Besides, he’s what he is. We just need to spare some half an hour more enduring to his speech.

IMH soon came into view. Finally! We can finally handed him over to the medic in-charge of the relevant ward he was supposed to be in, and from there, they will do the necessary followed up.

And talk about waiting for the arrival of the doctor regarding on the latter’s case. For the whole of 2 hours!! My partner almost make noise from there!

Anyway, once after, we proceeded back to our vehicle. Along the way, my partner needed to go for the loo and told me to wait in the car. I had decided to take a short cut, by entering a garden that was there. Basically, this isn’t my first time walking along the hallways of IMH. Its been my third, and the first time I was here when I was been instructed to escort a male subject whom neighbours had filed numerous complaints against him because of his nasty habit of raising a din almost every morning. And once, he even launch a tremendous kick on one of the neighbour’s dog. Deliberately! Thank goodness that four-legged canine survives! Cops were called in, check on him, and were soon found to have a case of mentally disorder.

Hei, why am I bragging about the past?

So, I soon caught sighted of a male inmate from inside a garden. He was sitting on a bench, and was holding a stick, pointed 45 degrees upwards into the air, and with a string been tie at the front of the stick. One look at it, tells me that the inmate was “fishing” by using an “artificial fishing pole.” Of course, we are all aware that majority of the inmates here will do strange things. When encountered one of them, we had to therefore pretend to understand what they are doing. Even abnormally how they will act.

So, I chances upon the dude seated on the bench, and greeted him with a smile, “Hello there, my friend. So, I see that you’re fishing.”

Then, he turned a sharp looked at me and barks in reply, “You gila ah! Here no water how can you fish!?”

Gila is a Malay word for Mad (Had nothing to do with the Gila monster, in case you are wondering). Could be even Crazy. In Chinese, will be Siow.

What happened next? Well, I became speechless and continue my way back towards the car. My mind was a total blank and had nothing to reply back to him. Just that feeling of getting snapped, especially by an IMH inmate was like getting stabbed at the back by a knife….=(
