Braces update

3rd day of braces: 14/8/11

Feeling much better. I didn’t feel the soreness so much. It was much bearable than the 1st day, perhaps because I’m getting used to them?

Mr Toh did not wake up for dinner on Sat, I think he was very tired so I did not wake him up. I cooked maggi mee for myself. To avoid having to chew the noodles, I cut them into smaller pieces after they were cooked. Much easier to eat. 😀 Mr Toh woke up in the middle of the night saying he was hungry. Lol. He cooked maggi mee too. I could smell the fragrance in my semi conscious state!

When I woke up on Sunday morning around 8:30, he was still awake. which is a good thing as we have to go to my Mom’s place to pray. We left the house around 10am. After reaching Mom’s place and praying, we had lunch. I had the fried kway tiao noodles with some shrimp & mushrooms only. I couldn’t handle anything else. Lol. Then Mommy brought out canned longans as dessert. I tried eating one but gave up halfway as it was agony to try chewing 1. T_T End up I just drank the syrup.

We left Mom’s place at around 2pm as Mr Toh have to meet his friends to discuss something important. I decided to go home as I was feeling really tired and we had an argument earlier…so I didn’t felt like accompanying him anywhere. 😦

Took a nap and woke up for dinner when he came back. I only had some rice in soup, nothing else I felt like eating, besides the fried chicken wings but I wasn’t ready for them yet. 😦

Braces 4th day – 15/08/11

I realise my jaws are still stiff from the wisdom teeth surgery. Haven’t fully recover. T_T.

Had fish mee sua for lunch. Loads of stuff stuck in my teeth. T_T hate it!!

Met Mr Toh & his friends for dinner at Tampines after work, they had something to discuss. Had fish hor fun for dinner. Been eating loads of fish recently. Meat is too tough for me, unless it’s minced.

Been thinking if I should bring toothbrush to office. But I take a long time to brush my teeth, at least 8 minutes. So I decided against it.

I also realised 1 of the brace bracket on my upper tooth is causing me problems. It constantly rubs against my inner lip when I talk or eat and it feels like an ulcer is forming. Oh my god…. I wanted to buy dental wax but both Guardian & Watsons don’t carry it.

We parted ways at around 11pm plus as we wanted to catch the last bus home~

The weather was really nice & chilly that night as it was raining most of the day. Super shiok weather to sleep in!

For now, the soreness of the teeth don’t really bother me. Only when I bite stuff. Usually I take a while to fall asleep because I could feel the soreness and need to take some time to get used to it. But I fell asleep that night within seconds! Or maybe I was too tired. Haha.

Braces 5th day – 16/8/11

Got up extra early to catch an earlier bus to work. Planning to check out NTUC to see if they sell dental wax. Not carrying high hopes though. T_T Turns out they really don’t carry it. *Sigh*

I also realised I have already gotten used to the soreness. It doesn’t bother me most of the time now. Wee!!

But the abrasions are really starting to irritate me, I don’t want ulcers!!

Had chicken porridge for lunch~

Met Mr Toh after work at Serangoon Nex. We were planning to watch Horrible Boss.

I reached 1st so I went to buy the tickets for the show at 9:10pm. Passed by Q&M,so I enquired about whether they sold ortho wax, the receptionist apologetically informed me they don’t sell at this branch, but the one at Serangoon Central have it for sale! When Mr Toh reached, I went with him to check it out. Bought the wax at $3 and interdental brush at $8.50 I think. Happy sia!!

Had dinner at McD~ I had a filet-o-fish. I usually don’t like it, but dunno why suddenly feel like eating it. My back teeth don’t hurt so much when chewing food! Went to find Clara who is working at Eye Bejwelled for a chat~ then left for our movie shortly.

Horrible Boss was awesome! Good movie for destressing! Haha.

For Nick, Kurt and Dale, the only thing that would make the daily grind more tolerable would be to grind their intolerable bosses into dust. Quitting is not an option, so, with the benefit of a few-too-many drinks and some dubious advice from a hustling ex-con, the three friends devise a convoluted and seemingly foolproof plan to rid themselves of their respective employers…permanently. There’s only one problem: even the best laid plans are only as foolproof as the brains behind them. [Source]

Super amusing and the storyline’s quite good. I also loved the happy ending. 😀 Charlie Day was hilarious as Dale. I also loved the cameo by Mr Fantastic, Ioan Gruffudd as Mr Wetworks. Hahahaa, that part was SUPER hilarious! I almost wet my pants laughing.

Wetwork Man: Are you kidding me? I’ve driven all this way and nobody wants to get pissed on?


I’m a bit not used to using the interdental brush, but it’s ok, practice makes perfect!

Braces 6th day – 17/8/11

Feeling much much better!

I had wanton mee for lunch~ And kway chup for dinner! Yummy!!

Mr Toh went out after dinner and when he came back, I was asleep but could vaguely remember he gave me a good night kiss. Hee.

Braces 7th day – 18/8/11

Bought duck porridge for lunch. The auntie was very nice, when she saw I had braces on, she told the auntie cutting the meat to “切小块一点,小妹绑牙。Aiyo…so sweet!!

Bought dinner home for Mr Toh. I had Macaroni soup for dinner~ Chicken cutlet fried rice for Mr Toh. End up, he couldn’t finish his chix cutlet rice, I coudn’t resist, so I finished the rest of the chicken cutlet and egg for him. I can bite better liao! It doesn’t hurt that much~! Weee!!

But still very sian whenever I eat, because at least 1/3 of the food will get stuck and the feeling sucks!

Today’s the 10th day! Sometimes I even forget I have braces on! Hahaha….not much feeling of soreness liao~ Shiok!

Mr Toh just left for Vietnam yesterday morning around 5am plus….he’ll be back on Monday night, I kinda miss him. Miss talking to him. T_T

It’s OK, time passed very fast. Went to the library yesterday and I’m planning to rot at home the whole day today. Shiok~~

I never thought I’d say this……but Monday faster come!
