On the second day of my school holidays (20th June), mummy brought me to Edaytown 星期八小镇. Edaytown is China's version of Kidzania where children get to play-pretend and role-play different types of occupations. I have actually been here last year in one of my school field trips but it was too crowded and I only managed to take part in 2 occupations.
This time, we took the opportunity to go before the local school holiday started (holidays for international schools started a week earlier) to beat the crowd. Mummy chose the afternoon session (3:30-7:30pm) on a weekday and it was a good choice... the whole place was quiet and nearly deserted. I didn't need to queue up at all and was the sole participant in most of them. Even with all the time saved from queuing, I still managed only about less than a quarter of the 48 available occupations in this "theme park". 4 hours is just too short!
Hanging around with the Edaytown mascots before the gates opened at 3:30pm for the second session of the day.
First stop... cashed my cheque at the bank
We went into this plane and took turns becoming flight attendants and pilots. There was a flight simulator inside too.
Biotechnology researcher at Yakult (Just ignore spelling mistakes on the board. It is a common sight here).
Looking under the microscope. After finishing my "research", I was given a bottle of Yakult as reward! :)
Cacat-looking cucumber sushi made by... err, who else? :p
Volunteered at a recycling plant
Loving nannies in a nursery... mummy kept persuading me to try this but I refused. I preferred something tougher and more rugged....
I was given a small pack of chewy candies after completing my task there.
I had so much fun and earned so much money (Eday currency) that I asked mummy for another future visit. Well, let's see how first. Entrance fee is not cheap! RMB150 (RM75) for child and RM50 (RM25) for accompanying adult. Maybe we should go home and try Kidzania first :)
