Phantom Nurse in Tudung
Confessions by Muhammad Shazwan
This one is a classic - Eugene Tay
This was about 20 yrs ago when my late grandfather had an eye operation. He needed to be warded and my auntie who was a nurse coordinated his admission and he was put in an A ward.
I volunteered to stay and watch over my grandfather as he recuperated from the surgery.
I remember till today that I was awoken by one of the "nurses" coming into the room. I couldn't see clearly because I didn't have my glasses on. All I could see from afar that the nurse in white came into the room and stood by the door and after a few minutes she left.
So fast forward the next day, my auntie came to the ward and check on my grandfather. I casually asked her if the night before there was a malay female nurse because she was wearing a white tudung apart from her normal nurse uniform
My auntie was startled but she told me she will check with the nurses at the counter. She returned and said maybe I was trying to be funny because nurses in Singapore don't wear tudung over their uniform and the night before all the nurses on duty were non-malay.
I kept my mouth shut because who did I see then because I clearly remember the nurse wore a white tudung and uniform. I didnt look after my grandfather on the 2nd night. No thank you.
