A Doctor For A Day
Did you respond to my Lilbookworm Facebook Fanpage shoutout on on July 18 about this event? We missed the 1st run in July & we were so glad that Mt Elizabeth Novena Hospital ran it for the 2nd time in Aug. I registered AJ for the 10th Aug.
This is not 'ma-in ma-in' ('play play' in Malay). This is for real! Oh well, at least the place & the equipment they used were real, not toys! KidZania & BabyBoss would not be able to come that close!

|All gathered for a short briefing|
The first room they entered was the General Practitioner room where they had hands-on on how to measure one's temperature & blood pressure, albeit, any-o-how.
The next room they went in was the Accident & Emergency room where they learnt how to 'make a dead person alive again' & bandage someone. Yes, we had to explain to AJ the difference between 'resuscitation' & 'resurrection' after that. :D
|AJ volunteered to be the patient.|
The following room was Nursing room. The children got to carry the babies (thank God they were not real babies) & change their wet diapers (the diapers were really wet).
|Be careful with the way you handle the baby, Dr AJ Lee!|
The 2nd last room was the Operating Theatre, where they had a Mr Smoke, who smoked too much & needed an operation.
The last room was Pharmacy. But no dispensing of medicine, they only changed the robe & took a group photo.
|After an hour's work, Dr AJ Lee was presented a certificate & a real stethoscope as souvenir.|
