Dental Blow

First entry on the new blog 🙂

I have tried to blog in many different places but until now i still haven’t get used to the habit of blogging. I really think that blogging is a great way of exchanging thoughts and also keep my thoughts in perspective. Hopefully I will think about it better. WordPress is great and I cannot wait to use more of its features as I get used to it more.

Yesterday was a blow. I went to the dentist after so much postponing (after more than one year). I have an extras insurance already in place for about a year but I haven’t managed to go until yesterday. I think part of the reason is that I am scared. When I was little, my mum always brought me to the lady dentist who never put ANY anesthetic whatsoever. After so many visits, the pain traumatised me to say the least. I always wondered why my mum had to pay so much money to her just to hurt me.

Back to the topic, I have known for a while that at least three of my wisdom teeth are growing. All three of them are not placed as nice as I would like it to be – the worst one is the bottom left side: growing to my cheek ouch. The dentist told me that another one is growing (and this one will be to the cheek again!) and he advised me to have an oral surgery to remove all four. Not to go through the pain that I can imagined, the cost for one tooth will be about $300-$400 eeek.

So today, I thought I should put more thoughts into my teeth so I follow the dentist’s advice to buy an electric toothbrush and use dental floss regularly. To my surprise electric toothbrush is much (WAY much) cleaner compared to the traditional one. It is not too expensive either, only about $25 for an oral B 🙂 I really hope I can keep up the good habit and keep my teeth on its current stage (11 fillings need to be done is enough). Sigh sigh sigh, talking about savings…



futile attempt…

On another note, I should assume that I will have no time to do anything on the weekend. It just passed like a *snap* and it is naive of me to think that I can clear up my to-do list. I put more emphasis of sleeping later (with the help of coffee and v and the top pic below) every second night just to make me feel a bit more productive, but it is not always easy. Even sleeping at 2 am in the morning doesn’t really mean that I am more productive, sometime I kept on getting distracted (like installing this wordpress) instead of doing things that I am supposed to do 🙁
Below (the bottom one) is one of my unfinished business. Been doing this puzzle for a long time, will be longer if I don’t get my act together fast.




hope to finish this soon

Enough for the day. Will post things more frequently *I hope*

Other things that happened:

  • Managed to put an order for Four-hour Work Week by Timothy Ferriss in Kinokuniya. I checked on Dymocks, Angus and Borders during the weekend but none of them have it. The Kinokuniya lady said it will come in a fortnight.
