Reality Escape Room Game in Singapore

Reality Escape Room Game is inspired by virtual “Escape Room” video games and web-based browser games. Typically, there is a scenario and a mission to achieve, with some hints scattered all over the room, and the group has to escape from the chamber within a given time. There are currently two operators in Singapore, Xcape (1-hr game) and Freeing SG (45-min game). Both are launched here about 6 months ago. The cost is S$28 per person for weekends and S$22 for weekdays. One may enjoy discounted price (from 20% to 50%) from Groupon Singapore, or using special promotion codes.

Xcape Singapore. Lim Min went for this game, as part of NTU's CN Yang Scholars Programme orientation camp in July 2013. She had found it rather cool and shared with us how she and her friends managed to escape the room.  
Freeing SG. We went on 9 December, paid about $66 for 4 persons (actually, I may have paid for 1 extra person as I read somewhere that only those above 15 need to pay). Honestly, I find it not value-for-money for a 45-minute problem solving game. 
Mission completed!

Enlistment Day

Queuing at CCK Bus Interchange, at 8.15 am and waiting for transport to Home Team Academy.
Lunch served to new recruits and guests today. There are 4 meals served daily - Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Supper.
I estimate more than 60% new Police National Servicemen are Malays. In Lim Jeck's NUSH cohort, based on those who have updated where they are posted to, about 93% are enlisted into Singapore Armed Forces, 5% Singapore Police Force and 2% Singapore Civil Defence Force. Majority of them are scheduled for enlistment in December 2013, February 2014, March 2014 and May 2014. Wei Zhang, Lim Jeck's friend from NUS High, is also enlisted on the same day, same place.
