1 Children working hard on their masterpieces during the colouring contest. (Aug 13, 2015)

VISITORS to All Seasons Place in Air Itam, Penang, received free medical checkups and enjoyed wholesome activities during a two-day health campaign.

The courtyard of the strip mall was lined with booths set up by tenants to highlight various health and wellness-related products and services.

Many took advantage of the free con-sultations to have their blood pressure, body mass index, glucose levels, nervous system, eyesight and oral health checked.

The exhibitors included George Town Pharmacy, eSavers Optical, Step In Beauty and Wellness, Homecare Shop, Aik Soon Tang and Mount Miriam Cancer Hospital.

There were also many stage programmes promoting healthy lifestyles during the event on Saturday and Sunday.

Chefs from JanxDen Greenlife Cafe put on a cooking demonstration showing that healthy food can be tasty, and briefed onlookers about nutritional values of ingredients used.

Chi Fitness had the crowd dripping in sweat during fast paced Zumba routines, while Juice Me tested the public’s knowledge on the health benefits of fruits in Q&A sessions.

Staff members of Lemon-grass Florist amazed the crowd by creating bouquets out of red chillies, long beans, leeks, corn, green peas, cinnamon sticks, apples, oranges, orchids and tulips.

About 50 children also took part in a colouring contest co-organised by Precise Dental Surgery, spending two hours on various teeth and gum-themed artworks.

In Category A for seven to nine-year-olds, Gracelyn Loh emerged champion, followed by runners-up Chua Zi Wen and Ang Kok Huai.

Lim Hui Xin aced Category B for those aged 10 to 12, followed by Goh Jia Yu and Quak Cai Er in second and third respectively.

There were also consolation prizes for Khoo Yee Wen, Chua Jia Hong, Sn’g Ruey Seng, Lee Jia An and Natasha Goh Jia Xi in the former category, along with Loh Yee Chern, Sydnnie Yen Jin Xin, Calvin Tan, Fong Jia Xin and Chong Xin Yun.
