Sunday’s study session had left Sammantha Khor (23) hospitalised after she forgot to drink water during the 10 hour stint.
Diagnosed with severe dehydration, medical staff at Sydney’s Royal North Shore Hospital, attempted to hook the Virgo up with an IV (Intravenous Fluid Regulation) drip.
As this was all happening, the until then unconscious Khor opened her eye-lid, before pushing away the plastic tube.
“Nerh ivy,” murmured the Masters of Pharmacy student. “Purl Melk Teh”
Luckily for Samantha, the doctor on call Jun-soo Baen, was able to decode the parched sentence.
“If my pig latin is correct, she wants Milk Tea. In a bag.”
While it was against his medical judgement to oblige with Samantha’s request, Jun-soo now tells The Native he’d been itching to try the new tea in a bag idea all week.
“So I asked some of the nurses to step up. I was like Deborah, you heard the lady”
“Take the Uber to Chatswood, and we’ll Whatsapp you the orders”.
After returning with all orders, the team administered a 1L bag of Brown Sugar Milk Tea into Samantha’s veins. Her face began returning to her natural colour, before the following came out of her mouth,
“It gives meh lyf”
More to come.
