Direction: From Ximen MRT station, take the green line (which was just opened one month ago) towards Songshan and alight at Nanjing Sanmin station (南京三民站). From the station, it's a five minutes walk to the Living Mall (京华城) where Babyboss is located on the 7th floor.
In Babyboss, it's not only about having fun for the kids. They will learn the fact that money does not drop down from the sky. They got to work hard to earn money and spend them wisely. Here's a sneak preview: My Pilot Captain Javier and Chief Inflight Stewardess Jerlene.
While the kids were enjoying themselves, parents do not just laze around. Their main job is to help their children to plan the different jobs one after another. There are a total of 70 occupational roles and every role got a timetable. Each job session will take about 30-45mins. Furthermore, there are limited number of children who can attend each session. The seats for most of the popular roles will be filled up very quickly. Bad news is there was a school excursion today and it's expected to be crowded but good news is they will leave by 3pm, which means the place will be pretty empty for the last 2-3 hours.
Anyway, we were fortunate that when we arrived at the TransAsia Airline counter, there was still one space left for both pilot and flight attendant. This is one of the most popular jobs in Babyboss. As a parent, I was invited to go on board the below plane and act as a passenger.
Before the start of a job role, there is always a briefing session and uniform changing. Here comes the pretty stewardess Jerlene, who was on her way to board the plane!
And how about the smart looking pilot Captain Javier!
Photography is not allowed while on board. Basically Javier was sitting in the cockpit controlling the plane (I think there is a flight simulator game of some sort). As for Jerlene, she and the rest of flight attendants were busy pushing trolleys along the aisle in the plane asking every passenger whether they need a blanket or magazine. It's a short flight and the mission was accomplished. Here comes Captain Javier after the successful flight.
Look at the serious look on both Jerlene and Javier's face while on duty! With such look, I felt safe to stay in this city. Haha................
The next available job is the Balloon Magician at the Magic Theater. Here the kids were taught how to make a puppy using balloons.
Before going to the actual fire scene, all the young firefighters were trained to slide down the fireman pole and pick up the hardhat.
Yeah! Another mission accomplished!
By now, all the school kids had left and we wanted to try out the Astronaut at the space center, However, the session will only start an hour later. So we went over to the nearby Workshop and signed up as car mechanics.
In this mission, all these young astronauts will take a space shuttle to the moon. I understand that it's a simulator ride for the journey to the moon.
Jerlene and Javier had an enjoyable and educational day today at Babyboss. They managed to complete 9 professions each which in itself was a great achievement. I read many blogs saying that their kids only managed to complete 6-7 jobs in a day. Well done, Jerlene and Javier!
We took a few photos of the surrounding before heading to the nearby Raohe St Night Market.
